Your spring adventure begins with a celebration of Welsh pride and culture on St David’s Day. Join the picturesque parades and immerse yourself in the vibrant festival atmosphere as Wales honours its patron saint. The streets up and down the Country will echo with the sounds of traditional music whilst locals and visitors alike sport the national emblems – daffodils and leeks.

High Tea at the Castle

What better way to start your day than with a traditional high tea overlooking Cardiff Castle? The Fairmont, a charming little tea house nestled within the castle grounds, offers a serene location to enjoy local delights alongside world-class brews. Savour scones served with clotted cream and jam and delectable finger sandwiches, all whilst the castle’s centuries-old walls echo stories of Welsh history.

Country Walks in Llandudno

A breath of fresh spring air awaits in Wales’ largest seaside resort. Llandudno’s serene countryside provides the perfect backdrop for a leisurely group walk. Visit the Great Orme, a Marine Drive perched on high cliffs with spectacular views across the Irish Sea, and experience a burst of floral colour as the meadows come to life after the winter slumber.

Bangor Bridge Jump

Daredevils and adventure seekers will find their heart’s desire in the historic city of Bangor. Take a leap of faith from the iconic Victorian-built bridge, 80 feet above the Menai Strait. The annual event is not for the faint-hearted but promises an adrenaline rush and stunning views of Snowdonia mountains.

In the vibrant city of Swansea, give in to the charm of craft stalls, classic Welsh street food, and the sounds of local live musicians at the Swansea Spring Market. This bustling market is the perfect spot to pick up artisanal souvenirs and freshly made Welsh cakes, along with the opportunity to mingle with friendly locals.
