Rail Holidays in Wales
Wales is a small country bordering England, forming part of Great Britain, and probably the most beautiful area.The mountains, valleys and verdant rolling hills almost rival New Zealand in their captivating grandeur. With its west coast weathered by the Atlantic into fascinating cliff faces one can spend hours watching the waves crash thunderously against the rocks. The height of the mountains slows the clouds and the resulting mists and drizzling rain make the lush grass almost luminous when the sun come out. It has its own language, although everyone speaks English and the town names you see are usually lacking in vowels and are generally unpronounceable! This is an example, Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, but there are longer and more complicated ones.The people are warm and welcoming and will be happy to teach you a few words if you like a challenge.There are mediaeval castles to explore and quaint small villages with artefacts old and new. Perhaps take a ride on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways, one of the most picturesque in the world.
