About Travelling in Wales

It is very easy to get around in Wales. If you are keen on exploring everything this beautiful country has to offer, then travelling using public transport is certainly going to help. In Wales, you will find some of the most scenic roads, pathways, and railways in all of Britain. So, instead of just hopping on a domestic flight to your next destination, here are a few other modes of transport you could consider within Wales:

Train

The main railways in the south and the west of Wales run along the coasts connecting Pembrokeshire, Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff, Newport, and Chepstow.

In North Wales, the main line runs along the north coast through Holyhead, Bangor, Conwy, Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Rhyl, and Prestatyn. They have a branch from Shotton to Wrexham.

There are a number of scenic lines between the north and middle of Wales. For example, the Heart of the Wales line from Swansea to Shrewsbury cuts across the rolling hills of mid-Wales.

Coach

The National Express has an intercity coach service all along the southern coast as well as the northern and western coast. Then there’s Megabus which runs low-cost coach services between Pembroke Dock and Newport.

Car

This one’s pretty straightforward. Travelling from the south to north is quite picturesque and includes the Cambrian Mountains, Brecon Beacons, and Snowdonia on your way. It isn’t the most efficient way to travel, but it certainly is the best way to experience Wales.

Bicycle

Rural Wales is a terrific cycling destination. By following their National Cycle Network, you will be able to experience some appealing country lanes, forest paths, and disused railway lines.

So, now that you have a number of options for travel through Wales, just ignore flights altogether. This is the real way to experience the country. You will not regret making this decision.
