What do you want from your vacation?


Before you can begin to determine where you are going to stay when visiting Wales, you need to decipher what you want from your accommodation. Are you visiting Wales because you want to enjoy the history it has to offer? Maybe you want to have an active holiday and to spend your time hiking and kayaking? Perhaps you want to enjoy the stunning beaches that Wales has to offer? Consider what is most important to you. This will help you to plan the rest of your trip to perfection.


Where are you going to stay?


One of the most important things you need to consider is where in Wales you are going to base yourself throughout your stay. It is always a good idea to be somewhere central, so you can easily take day trips to anywhere that you have put on your to-do list. If you are interested in visiting the south coast of Wales, Swansea is one of the biggest cities here. There are plenty of great places to stay in Mumbles nearby, which means you will get the convenience and vibrancy of city-life while also enjoying some of the most scenic walks.


Picking the right time of the year


As you may expect, Wales gets a lot of rain. So don’t go there in November expecting the weather to be pleasant. If you want to explore the beaches and enjoy Wales in the best light, summer is definitely the best time of year to visit. Nevertheless, there are some exciting events and festivals that take place in Wales throughout the year, so make sure you check these out before deciding when to visit.


Choosing your castles wisely


Last but not least, there are so many castles in Wales – it is no coincidence that it is deemed the world’s castle capital! So, make sure you choose the castles to incorporate into your trip with care. There are castles in almost every town, so take your time to do some research online. You will find that there is no need to waste time driving to castles that are out of the way, as you probably have some amazing castles nearby. All it takes is a little bit of digging on the Internet. You will have to pay a small fee to enter most castles, but some are free.
