With spring comes Wales' national flower, the daffodil, and St. David's Day on March 1st. Summer brings mild temperatures, making it perfect for hiking the mountains and engaging in watersports on Pembrokeshire's coast. August sees the arrival of Wales' most important cultural festival, the Eisteddfod - an arts competition dating back to medieval times, featuring musicians, singers, dancers and more. Winter's frosty peaks are the perfect inspiration to pull up a perch in a warm traditional pub, log fire and all. Winter can also see prices of accomodation drop considerably!
Wales is the perfect add on to a UK or continental Europe trip, but also makes for a holiday in itself. Flights are available to the capital city, Cardiff, via London and Manchester airports. Both of these airports are accessible in just a couple of hours by rail or road.
Wales is part of the United Kingdom and so follows the same entry requirements in terms of passports/visitor visas – New Zealanders can stay for up to six months as tourists, and won’t need to apply for a visa in advance of arriving.
