The three Welsh National Parks protect an impressive 20 percent of Wales. The parks include precious landscapes, habitats, villages and heritage sites. They’re perfect for active weekends and holidays in the glorious outdoors. 


Pembrokeshire Coast National Park                          

The Pembrokeshire coast offers people a variety of things to do, whether you are interested in wildlife, photography, walking or watersports. Enjoy the park's relaxing beaches, have family fun or take a romantic break. There are many pubs, spa treatments and lots of fresh air. 


Snowdonia National Park

There's loads of history in this beautiful landscape. The park covers 838 square miles. There are loads of activities to enjoy including hiking, mountain biking and walking in wild landscapes. The Snowdonia National Park features a plethora of waterfalls and lakes. Head to the highest point in Wales and England - either on foot or via a vintage steam railway.
