Wales by Rebecca Ford
Wales is the latest addition to Footprint's celtic nations. The capital, Cardiff, is undergoing a renaissance and has become a great shopping city with loads of lively bars and restaurants together with the best stadium in the country. But Wales has much more to offer: a fabulous coastline espcially around Pembrokshire; splendid mountains with Snowdonia dominating the north; huge castles reminding the visitor of Wales' turbulant past. Then there are the towns, Victorian Tenby, Britains smallest city at St David's; the Wells towns, spas in Central Wales; and the Italinate Portmeirion. Add to this great wildlife, rugby, music eisteddfods and the Welsh cultural tradition and you have one of the most visited areas of Britain.
