My boyfriend and I will be in Cardiff for New Years Eve this year and I was wondering if there are any special events or things to see/do??
Any ideas or advice welcome :)
Thanks in Advance!
Having problems finding out best way to get from the Bangor train station to the bus station. Are coming into train station on Monday evening July 25, and need to catch to bus to Caernarfon right away.
We are heading off to North Wales this coming weekend (Short notice I know)
Sheila has never been to Wales before so I want to get the best out of what little time we will be here.
Sunday we stay the night in Anglesey and then down to Pwllheli for the next 4 nights.
The only plans I have at the moment are a half day trip to Barmouth and another half day on a train ride up Snowdon.
We are not the best walkers in the World but we can potter round markets and castles and the like.
Are there any little gems or places we should go and see in this general area, transport is not a problem as we will be in our car.
Hi, we are non EU citizens planning to travel by plane to Dublin first and than with a ferry to UK Holyhead for London visit. We will obtain Irish and UK visas for this trip. My question is where does the UK entry passport control stamp takes place ? On the Dublin-Holyhead ferryboat or at the arrival to Holyhead by UK Border Staff ? Thank you in advance.
Hi, we are non EU citizens
Thanks to your advice. I still cannot figure it out how to plan my trip to these areas. Since I could spend about 4 days three nights to cover a trip including Cardiff, Brecon beacons national park, Snowdon mountain etc. Could some expert here give me some hints. Or I need more time if otherwise.
As we will visit Wale and stay in Cardiff coming June, anyone have experience could advise if it is possible to have day trip to Snowdonia National Park as I will drive. As I will drive and bring my child, any suggested itinerary?

I'm thinking of visiting Cardiff (in fact I've never been to Wales before). I will be travelling from Salisbury to Cardiff Central. Please can you recommend what I should do and visit as a first time visitor? I like shopping, but I also like nature and museums. Thanks very much.
Hello all, I have done some searching on the internet and can't locate the town of Blaewyciom (I may not have the correct spelling) in Montgomeryshire North Wales. And any input with regard to hotels in the area would be appreciated. Thank you, Charles
Hi, I need some help on finding bus schedule Wrexham to Manchester airport. I fly on 25-th at 7 AM to Sofia, any suggestion as time table if someone already took this trip, is there evening convenient transport? or night trip to the airport or better to go day time and have the night at the airport ?
Please if you can reply with refined information.
Thanks in advance.
Hi there, I am going to the UK for around 3 1/2 weeks in May and plan to spend around 7 - 10 days in Wales. I have been to Cardiff, Newport, Chepstow and Tinturn Abbey/Wye Valley areas before, but I need to see more.....
I am traveling alone and by train and bus only (learner driver).
One of my passions is photography..... I love pretty coastal villages, old ruins/boats, dark stormy skies, flowers.....just beautiful scenery in general.
So far, I am thinking to go from Liverpool to Chester, then to some or all of these places: Conwy, Bangor, Caernarfon, Portmeiron, Aberystwyth, Cardigan, and Tenby. I would also love to go to the top of Snowdonia via the train.
I would like to stay somewhere (maybe Aberystwyth) for at least a couple of nights and use it as a base for walking/busing short distances to explore off the beaten track.
What do you think of my itinerary at the moment? Anything I should maybe skip? Any suggestions for areas of outstanding beauty I should see?
Thanks a lot! :-)
Has the 7 mile drive re-opened?
Hi.. I need help and suggestions on a few things. I'll be travelling with my wife and 3 kids (4yrs,2yrs & 1yrs). We be renting a car from Manchester Airport. We be in UK for 8 days and hope to have a wonderful scenery trip there. Someone told me Wales is a mix of both Cornwall & Scotland. The only downside is maybe I'll be travelling in early April where weather is either can be very good or bad. I was thinking of 2 base for accommodation (3 days each). One at the North and the 2nd near South but not sure which area is best to stay.
I read that Nant Ffrancon pass and llanberis pass via Capel Curig are both scenic route. Any other route that I can add on to it.
Places of Interest
(1) Would love to hike up to Snowden but with kids I understand that it is impossible. Read that there is a train that went up but it depend on the weather. Any easy hiking trail route apart Snowden. I've heard about Yr Eifl but not sure hows the route there.
(2) Like to try the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways (return trip). Not sure where to start and how long is the trip.
(3) Like to explore Lyn Peninsula,Caernarfon,Anglesey etc. Any scenic route that I can pass. Any place where I can stop for cliff view pictures.
Drive via A70 route. Heard that route is quite scenic. Would love to stop by Hay-on-Wyes just to feel the books before moving off to my 2nd base. For South Wales I would like to discover more on Pembrokeshire (St Davids,Solva, Goodwick etc) area. More to the beaches, cliffs with views.
Place of Interest
Basically I am willing to drive any routes that is for picturesque views. Though I understand roads in UK can be congested during peak, I will try to keep it simple and just drive where I can or pass through. This is also not a finalize plan so I am open to suggestions.
Once I am done with Wales, I may travel up back to Birmingham for a day before heading up back to Manchester.
Thank you in advance.
Is it true that the walls of the town are made of book shelves? Wow. I am planning a trip to England one day and am thinking of also visiting this place as well now!

I booked a room at the Sleeperz Hotel right next to where the Central Bus Station/train station is (or should I say was) not realizing that on Aug 1 they shut it down for construction. Now we are getting dropped off at Sophia Gardens and I am a bit worried as my coach bus from London arrives at 2:20 in the morning. I have never been to Cardiff (am from the US) and wondered if it is relatively safe to walk this at night? If not, is there a public bus I can take or will taxis be my only option? (And will there be an easy to flag taxi or do I need to prebook this)? I thought I picked the best hotel as it was right next to the station so I am a bit upset - but thankful I realized this now and not at 2 in the morning on the side of the road! Thanks for any advice you have!
Does anyone offer, or know anyone who can, tours of Cardiff city centre in Spanish?
I'll be in Northern Ireland for a genealogy course in September, then going down to Waterford. To travel back to London, I'm debating between going across at Rosslare, or going from Dublin to Holyhead. Not sure if this is an Irish question or a Welsh question... as I also need to know which would be the best train to London. But I also need to know what is the easiest way for a foot passenger - will be either taking train or bus to ferry terminal... and then train to London - so which would be handiest, or most scenic. I'm retired, have the time, and don't really want to fly... don't see much!
Thanks for your help! I am posting this in the Ireland forum as well.
Hi im want to go from London to Portmeirion, is there a tour company the goes from London to there for a day visit or a way I can take a train from Londton to there for the day?
we'd love to visit Wales over Easter for a week and were wondering where to stay to make the most of it. Our idea is to see both the Brecon Beacons NP and the Pembrokeshire Coast NP, so we'd need accomodation close by. Ideally, there is some small picturesque village with a nice pub, lots of old houses, magnificent views and of course a cosy B&B. It's probably better to stay in both places for about three days each instead of choosing just one base - or is it? Our interests are hiking/walking, but we are also very likely to just drive around by car and discover the area. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Hi again do you think it is safe to walk Snowdon today.
Hi. A friend and I want to visit Wales, including St Davids, and we don't plan to drive. Should we stay in St Davids itself - where central accommodation options seem quite limited - or is there a suitable place nearby on a railway line where we could stay overnight / eat and take a bus to St Davids? (We also plan to spend a few nights in Cardiff, Swansea and possibly Chepstow and do day trips by public transport). Any advice welcome. Thanks! L
A group of friends and I are spending a day in Cardiff bay and are looking for a nice pub in the area to have some lunch in. Are there any nice traditional pubs round there or would we be better off somewhere else? We're not after anything fancy, just some good honest grub and a nice pint.
Many thanks :)
How much was a weekly train pass from caerphilly to cardiff in 2006
Can anyone help with somewhere to eat in Porthcawl on a Sunday evening, with a well behaved dog in tow? Would really appreciate any help. I know there are some great places for Sunday lunch, but I can't find anything for the evening.
