South and West Wales is impossible to summarise
in a sentence, simply because the region - which extends from the
borderland Wye Valley across to the western tip of Pembrokeshire
- is so full of contrasts. From the mountains of Brecon Beacons
National Park, to the untouched sandy beaches of the Pembrokeshire
Coast National Park, its headlands ablaze with wild flowers. From
the balmy, breezy Gower Peninsula,
Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the leafy
The quiet coastal villages and bustling market towns contrast with
the modern cities of Swansea
and Cardiff, the capital
city of Wales, both with exciting new waterfront developments. Look
out on your travels fro the traditional crafts available - from
pottery, wood turning and carving, spinning and weaving, to ironwork
and handcrafted jewellery, not forgetting of course the handmade
chocolates and cheese. In amny of these places you can see the craftspeople
The region is also one of contrasting parks. In Pembrokeshire, roller-coasting
Oakwood Park entertains the whole family, while in Carmarthenshire
are the coastal expanse of the Pembrey Country Park and the Millenium
Coastal Park. Margam Park near Port Talbot has a Gothic mansion,
Classical orangery and Medieval Cistercian monastery and at Tredegar
House and Country Park, near Newport, the 'upstairs downstairs'
life of this magnificent seventeenth century estate can be experienced.
A visit to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales at Llanarthne is
a delight, with the largest single span glass house in the world
as its centrepiece.
The industrial heritage of South Wales can be witnessed in its now
green valleys through fascinating and often moving visits to attractions
such as Big Pit near Blaenavon and the Rhondda Heritage Park near
Pontypridd. With ex-miners as guides, the coal mining communities
of the past are vividly brought to life. Go back further in time
at Llancaiach Fawr Manor near Nelson where you can experience life
during the Civil War in Wales; or further again, back millions of
years, and visit the iron age village, dinosaur park and underground
showcaves at Dan-yr-Ogof, Abercrave.
