About South & South West Wales

South and South West Wales is full of life, offering a bold collection of sites to see and great activities for families. Having a population of around 2.2 million, almost three-quarters of the whole of Wales, including 400,000 in Cardiff, 250,000 in Swansea and 150,000 in Newport. South Wales extends westwards to include Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.  The Brecon Beacons National Park covers about a third of South Wales, containing Pen y Fan, the highest British mountain south of Cadair Idris in Snowdonia.

Dolaucothi Gold Mines

This National Trust site was once used by the Romans to mine for gold and is the only known Roman gold mine in Britain. Taking a tour with their knowledgeable guides is a great idea for young people. You can also stop for tea and scones!

Millenium Stadium Tours

Walk in the footsteps of Ryan Giggs, see where Madonna stood, where Shane Williams laced his boots, and where all the action takes place on event days with a Principality Stadium Tour.

Chepstow Castle

This castle, on the cliffs of the River Wye, is the oldest surviving post-Roman stone fortification in Britain. There are special events held often in the castle and visitors are now able to walk along the battlements and into Martens Tower.
