During the day there’s award-winning beaches, beautiful coastline and miles of unspoilt countryside to explore. After dark, there are fantastic restaurants, amazing shows and sparkling nightlife. All year round, the English Riviera boasts more top attractions than any other UK resort.
It’s also the birthplace of Agatha Christie, a UNESCO Global Geopark and temptingly, England’s Seafood Coast!
So, whenever you come you’ll have the time of your life.
Stride out along fabulous walking trails. Choose from two National Trails – Glyndwr’s Way and Offa’s Dyke Path, The Beacons Way and the scenic high of the Kerry Ridgeway.
Explore the Elan Valley – one of Britain’s last surviving wildernesses or the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Take to the water fishing on Lake Vyrnwy or the River Severn, paddling down the Wye – or hop aboard a canal boat on the Montgomery or Mon and Brec Canal.
Take to two wheels. On the road you can pedal into cycling nirvana almost everywhere. One staircase to heaven is the climb to Hay Bluff, one of the highest mountain roads in Wales, with views to match.
For family-friendly rides head to Lake Vyrnwy, the Montgomery or Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, or Garwnant, with mini mountain bike trails and a skills park for young tricksters.
