    Wales is a small, friendly, fascinating country, with a rich history, diverse geography, exciting attractions and mouth-watering produce.

    You are never far from a mountain or the sea, which explains why we are so popular with walkers, climbers, surfers and sailors. Snowdon is taller than any peak in the whole of England, and our clean unspoilt beaches and coastline attract a fantastic array of marine life, including dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks, seals and turtles.

    By contrast, Cardiff, our capital and home to S.A. Brain and Co., is a thriving city, whose reputation continues to grow. The Millennium Stadium hosts global sporting events, while shopping centres such as St Davids 2, featuring the largest John Lewis store outside London, draw shoppers from far and wide.

    Cardiff Bay boasts iconic buildings such as the Wales Millennium Centre and the Senedd home of the Welsh Assembly Government.

    A proud sporting nation, Wales hosts international rugby, football and cricket, and our superb golf courses have gained a new profile, with the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport staging the 2010 Ryder Cup.

    As a nation, we are excited about the future, but we believe in looking after our history, as you will see from our majestic castles, much-loved steam railways, preserved coal mines and popular museums.

    Wales has its own language one of the oldest in Europe which is celebrated at the annual Eisteddfod, while our love of all literature is showcased at the worlds most famous literary festival at Hay-on-Wye.We love food and drink too, and with more sheep than people, its no surprise that Welsh lamb is a favourite! Beef, dairy products, seafood and wine are among other famous Welsh produce. Youll find these and more on the menus in our inns and hotels.
