So I have started to kind of be interested in visiting Wales when I’m going backpacking, but I haven’t seen a lot of people who have opinions or have visited Wales. If you have visited or are interested in Wales, tell me if it’s history and culture is really is as beautiful as the pictures and if the sheep and castles are really that interesting, or other information or advice on Wales! Thanks Smile

We had a car, and basically crossed over Wales to catch a ferry to Ireland.
We stayed in a B&B out in the middle of nowhere.
What I mostly remember about Wales are the many castles/ruins.
Talley Abbey was especially haunting, but there are of course many more well-known and better preserved castles.

yes parts of Wales are beautiful and if you have chance it is well worth a visit. If you like countryside there is some cool walking. The Brecon Beacons in the south, and Snowdonia in the north (with Mt Snowden the highest mountain, the summit is known as Yr Wyddfa). If you’re into languages Welsh is still commonly spoken and can be seen along with English on road signs etc. It’s related to both Breton and Cornish. The Archaeology and historical buildings (as the other posters mentioned!) are great too.
