Despite its equally rich history and stunning natural scenery, Wales doesn’t garner nearly as much hype as its neighbours Ireland, Scotland and England. The country’s lack of fame is a win for travellers looking to get off-the-beaten-path. Head here to find the medieval castles, charming market towns, lush valleys and scenic coastline that the country's UK cousins are known for, without the crowds.
Wales is known for its unpredictable weather, but July brings relatively consistent sunny skies. The warm temperatures, which usually average in the low 20s, are ideal for checking out the country’s beautiful sandy beaches.
