South Wales stretches from historic Chepstow and its imposing castle near the English border to the big skies and epic sea views of the jagged coast in the west.
The big draw here is Pembrokeshire, where almost 200 miles of magical shoreline is protected as a national park – home to craggy cliffs, award-winning beaches, pretty villages and traditional seaside resorts. If you feel like travelling a bit further afield, the Brecon Beacons are a couple of hours drive from most of our holiday parks in South Wales, but you will get to experience some great climbing and incredible views while you’re there.
Kids will really enjoy the numerous theme parks and attractions like Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo, Aberystwyth, Carew, and Pembroke Castles, and Oakwood Theme Park. All have events happening throughout the year that will make for a great family day out.
The big cities of South Wales deserve a visit too. If you’re a shopper you’ll love Cardiff’s city centre, where a modern shopping mall packed full of high street favourites sits alongside the smaller boutique stores of its famous Victorian arcades. Make sure you also explore the city’s fantastic arts and culture scene, the bars and restaurants of Cardiff Bay, and the city’s magnificent castle. Further along the coast you’ll find Swansea, which is now emerging as a serious rival to the thriving capital with its National Waterfront Museum and the Dylan Thomas Centre, which celebrates the birthplace of the acclaimed poet.
