5 Must See Places in Wales

While England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are often visited and placed on bucket lists, Wales sometimes is a a forgotten part of the UK. I had heard that Wales was a beautiful country, but I wouldn't have been able to name a sightseeing spot or area. Thankfully we had time to explore Wales for a couple of days because it really is a lovely place. If you get the chance to go to Wales, here are some of the places we would recommend:

Pembrokeshire South Coast - Green Bridge, The Cauldron, and Stack Rocks are all at the coast and within walking distance of each other. You'll have to drive through some military fields to get there, but a road for public use to the Stack Rocks Car Park is available.  You could walk the trail completely around the Pembrokeshire coast if you wanted to as it is just breathtaking.

Dan-Yr-Ogof National Showcaves - The 17 km long cave system is a must-see in Wales. There are multiple caves to visit and there's also a dinosaur area! Click here to read more about the caves.

St. David's Cathedral - A beautiful cathedral that lies within the smallest city in the UK. The city of St. David gets its city status because of the cathedral.

Aberystwyth - If you go to the top of Constitution Hill, you'll be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the town. You can hike to the top or take the funicular train. If you decide to hike, bring a hat on a sunny day! There aren't any shady areas up top and it can get warm quite quickly. Luckily there is a cafe with ice-cold drinks and ice cream at the top!

Snowdonia - We only had time to visit the southern end of Snowdonia park. The views were spectacular and the railway cars were cute. There's even a Railway Inn pub in Abergynolwyn that is decorated like a train station.
