If you’re planning on visiting Ireland, the UK or Scotland, you might want to consider a trip to Wales within the mix. Wales is within easy driving distance of Scotland and England or a ferry ride, if you’re coming from Ireland. The country is filled with beauty and exciting things to do for anyone’s taste. We’ve put together a list of some of the top things for you to do while in Wales to #FindYourEpic.
- Llechwedd Caverns Trampoline Park. In the past, these ancient caverns were used to build castles, as they contain some of the world’s finest slate. Now, the caverns have been transformed into a trampoline playground aptly named Bounce Below. Visitors are propelled around the park by springy nets after entering through an old mine train.
- Glastone’s Library. For bookworms, Glastone’s Library offers you a unique opportunity that you can’t get anywhere else in the UK: the chance to sleep among the books. Spend the day browsing the 150,000 books in the library, and then retire to the one of 26 rooms available for overnight guests.
- Low-Impact Woodland House. Those who love Lord Of The Rings will absolutely adore this hobbit-inspired home created by a family who wanted a completely eco-friendly place to live.
- Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. This is not a typo. This Welsh town decided to give itself a name people would remember (but not be able to spell) The village’s name translates from Welsh to “St. Mary’s Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio near the red cave.”
- Quay House. The Quay House, located in Conwy, is the Great Britain’s Smallest House! The house used to be a fisherman’s hut, but even he decided it was a bit too small and grew out of it. The little home is only 10 feet deep and 6 feet wide. If you visit the little house, you can walk inside and explore the first floor!
- Sol Cinema. Another “small” feature to Wales is the Sol Cinema, the world’s smallest movie theater – that runs on solar power! The theater is houses inside of a 1960’s trailer and screens ecological-themed films to groups of eight.
- Forest Of Borth. You may already know that Wales is filled with natural wonders, and the Forest Of Borth is certainly one of those. At low tide in the coastal town of Borth, rocks are revealed that are the remnants of a petrified forest. Human and animal tracks preserved in the hardened peat can be seen.
