Welcome to South Wales in the UK. I hope that you find the following resources helpful. I aim to give you a totally independent guide to South Wales especially if you intend to come for a holiday or vacation. If you're coming to the UK, England or Europe then Wales is definitely worth a visit as well. Cardiff is only just over the border from England and only 2 hours from London by train.

South Wales has a lot to offer from great scenery, good pubs and restaurants, and some excellent hotels as well as many visitor attractions. It is also a haven for sports fans and home to the best rugby team around.
Perhaps you're coming to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff - you'll find a real welcome in the city centre, with lots of good restaurants, pubs and hotels - not to forget world-class shopping. Cardiff Bay is well worth a visit especially if you fancy a stroll or a meal in one of the Cardiff Bay restaurants or pubs. Maybe you are a fan of Doctor Who or Torchwood and you want to see where the programmes are filmed in Cardiff Bay.
Cardiff is also home to many attractions for the whole family, from a hands-on technology experience, to taking a step back in time at one of the many castles and historic buildings.
But South Wales is not just about Cardiff. There are some great places to visit in the rest of South Wales and these pages aim to bring you a taste of what's out there.
For a start, Swansea is Wales' second biggest city and home to many sites of historic and cultural interest, including some great castles and the nearby Gower Peninsula and Mumbles.There are also plenty of fascinating visitor attractions to keep you entertained whether you are coming for a day or a fortnight.
Use the Quick Links on the right or at the top of any page to head straight to the interesting stuff. There are pages on hotels in South Wales as well as information on restaurants and pubs. I hope that it gives you an alternative view of South Wales as opposed to the more commercial, paid-for, sites. This is my little attempt to show that Wales is as good, even better than England!!!
If the site hasn't given you what you want, please feel free to drop me a note telling me how it can be improved.
