Things to do in Wales

Brecon Beacons

Hike to Henryhd waterfall – the highest in the Brecon Beacons area – to admire the 90-foot unbroken drop. Located in a wooded gorge, it’s only accessible by a precarious footpath, so wear waterproof clothing and stout shoes and travel in good weather.

Visit Britain’s smallest house at the quayside in the northern town of Conwy. Ironically, the house, which is only 10-feet by 6-feet, used to be owned by a 6-foot-tall fisherman.

This Italianate village is unlike any other town in Wales. Spend the day enjoying grandiose, postmodern buildings and then bed down in one of the village’s B&B cottages.
