American travelers cannot get enough of England, and to this day it consistently ranks in the three most popular European countries in terms of visitors per year. Nearly everyone visits London, one of the world`s most important cities and the epicenter of what was once a vast world empire, but England should definitely be explored in-depth, from the charm of the Cotswolds to the seaside resorts on the English Channel and the Irish Sea to the beautiful landscapes of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Westcountry. England is a country where the present day and over a millennia of history routinely intersect.
With such beautiful valleys, mountain peaks, and shoreline, Wales is considered one of the most picturesque parts of the United Kingdom. The Welsh culture is one that is on display everywhere you look, from the capital, Cardiff, where hundreds of years of history meet modern-day innovation, to the valleys of Glamorgan, to the beautiful north where mountains such as Mount Snowdon are just a short drive away from gorgeous seaside resorts such as Llandudno. Visit the beautiful castles, enjoy hiking and nature-watching, or enjoy such recreational activities as horseback riding and golf. Wales has quite a few options for those looking for a charming and breathtaking getaway.
Cardiff is the capital of Wales. It is also its most populous city and the epicenter of political, economical, social, and cultural life in Wales. With over 20 million visitors arriving each year, it is easily Wales`s most-visited tourist destination. In the early 19th century, the small town of Cardiff experienced a meteoric rise as one of the principal ports in the British Empire, and the area around the port is now a noteworthy tourist area which is home to such buildings as the Welsh National Assembly, the Pierhead Building, and the Millennium Centre. Other noteworthy sights include the BBC Drama Centre in the city center, where such TV shows as the dramas Casualty and the Welsh-language Pobol y Cwm are recorded; and the city`s two grand cathedrals: Cardiff Cathedral (Roman Catholic) and Llandaff Cathedral (Anglican), the latter dating from the 12th century. Cardiff Castle was built on the site of a 3rd-century Roman fort; the castle we see today also dates from the 12th century. Visit Cardiff Castle, Cardiff Bay, St Fagans National Museum of History, National Museum Cardiff, Caerphilly Castle, Wales Millennium Centre, Mermaid Quay, Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff Cathedral, Pierhead Building, and so much more!
Newport is surrounded by beautiful landscapes including the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the undulating Vale of Usk, famous for its salmon fishing, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Forest of Dean – all less than an hour’s drive from Newport. Famous for its docks, the Roman remains in nearby Caerleon and its association with the 19th-century Chartist movement, Newport is full of cultural surprises and is certainly a Welsh city on the rise.
