Many years ago (in the 1970's) there was a fine...VERY SMALL...stand-alone pub in Llangollen. Unfortunately, I don't recall the name. As I recall, it was painted white....maybe some half-timber. I do recall that darts was a feature at this pub. Does anyone know if it's still in existence. Could it have been turned into a pizzeria? Thanks for any help.

Hi - I am moving to Swansea by Jan 2014 and will stay for long time because i received a job offer there. Do you have or can recommend a proper flat to rent?
4 of us are traveling to Wales in early November - are staying in a timeshare in St. Davids. I have been looking for day trips from St Davids but have been unable to narrow down the possibilities. We are 2 couples - Senior Citizens - and so will not be doing strenuous outside activities. We are very interested in visiting as many of the castles as we can and also a coal mine and other interesting sites within a day's drive. I would greatly appreciate suggestions about the best sites to target. We will be in the area for 6 days. Also, any suggestions abut the weather and temperatures that time of the year? Thank you!!!
The best public transport from Cardiff Bay to Cardiff City
we will be spending 3-4 days in Wales, arriving at Holyhead after a tour of Ireland. Prefer to use local transportation (trains, buses) and not have to rent a car. Looking for itinerary suggestions --- what can we realistically see in 3-4 days? is it accessible by bus/train?
is it possible to book a hotel or B&B in a central area, and do day-trips from there? (using bus and/or train connections) -- eg. if we want to stay in the north of Wales, where would you suggest that we stay, in order to do day-trips for sightseeing?
I'm looking for a bed and breakfast pub for Sunday 25/08. Can you please suggest a decent place to stay?

Hello VT'ers, after answering a few questions , i finally have my own..im due to travel to wales by August 15th (4 days official and 10 exploring days). I'll be staying in Cardiff with a colleague.
-My question is Hows the place (heard its quite boring - i beg to differ) ?
-Travel options - is walking.hiking possible?

any other suggestion are welcome.
P.S. I got some cheap travel deals for this trip from crystal travel in london, i used them some time back are they are good, i had a conversation bout this so wanted to be sure.

Can anyone recommend a modern hotel near Cardiff Central station but nevertheless, quiet? I'm coming in August for one night, to visit the Dr Who Experience, but I think the hotel would be more conveniently placed near the station, rather than near the Bay, as after visiting the exhibition it would be more useful to be in the city centre.
Other than Cardiff and Swansea, what sights should I see when driving around Wales. Mainly I am interested in picturesque villages.
My fellow VTrs know EVERYTHING! Looking for some more help! I was on a train in Wales and left my suitcase on the train when we alit in Conwy. After a couple days, it seems its been turned in to the Newport lost property office. I got the system email to say I can come claim it (I cant, Im back in Canada) or I can send a courier to pick it up and send it to me. I would like that, regardless of cost (somewhat) since it had my phone charger and camera chargers in it and other irreplaceable stuff. So how do I go about doing this from Canada? Which courier service to use thats affordable but doesnt have to be quick that services Newport Wales? thanks!!

We are staying 1 night in Conwy, arriving around noon on one day and leaving again around 10am the next, so not much time. I was wondering if it's possible to hire a taxi to drive us to the Fairy Glen at Betws y Coed (and wait for us while we take some photos) and then drive us back to Conwy? Does this kind of thing happen? Any idea of cost? We are using public transport, no cars (we don't drive). Is it do-able in a couple of hours?
Hello all. I'm a "Doctor Who" fan and wanted to visit Southerndown Beach (famous scene with David Tennant and Billie Piper). Can one traverse to this beach on foot from Bridgend or are there motorways that would create a walking hazard?
San Francisco Bay Area
Hello all. This summer I will be taking a trip to the Republic of Ireland and Wales. While in Cardiff, i'm contemplating going to the "Doctor Who Experience" in Cardiff Bay. I've been a fan for the last thirty years. My question is this:would an adult fan enjoy this museum...or is it more geared for children?
San Francisco Bay Area
Hello everyone. My partner and I are considering making a spontaneous trip to Arugam Bay around the 15th March for 4 weeks. We both surf so will plan to spend a lot of time in the water or on the beach. Does anyone know, from experience, what the weather is like at Arugam Bay during March? I've read a lot of conflicting info saying that the 'season' starts in March or April but nowhere really talks much about what the weather is doing.
Also, is it the kind of beach where you can sunbathe and not get hassled?
