Visit Southern Wales

Discover Visit Southern Wales

With a rich history and culture to be explored, Southern Wales is one of the best places to start your voyage of discovery.

The Southern Wales Hub is a partnership that promotes Southern Wales as a destination. There's so much on offer whether you are looking for a city break, relaxing on the beach or a more adventurous action-packed activity holiday we have it all.

 

Southern Wales has a lot to offer whether you are looking for a city break, relaxing on the beach or a more adventurous action-packed activity holiday we have it all!

For such a small area, only around 75km (46.5 miles) east to west and around 50km(30 miles) from North to South, Southern Wales certainly fits a lot in. Spectacular countryside, a National Park and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a dramatic coastline.

We are immensely proud of our rich history and culture, which can be seen throughout our many castles and museums, and of our ancient language which you can try out for yourself.

Above all else though, we are proud of our friendliness and welcome that we offer visitors. Why not drop by and experience it for yourself.
