WALES HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Wales has so much to offer:-

Wales prides itself on its culture and its history, it has seen many changes over the years but tries where possible to retain its past history and traditions through maintaining Heritage sites, castles, restoring important buildings, lost mines and lost railways and giving them new life as working museums.  There are many traditional celebrations, carnivals, festivals, music, shows and special weekends, all which bring the history of the past alive to the newer generations. 

Wales has 750 miles of coastline, many glorious beaches, an abundance of Mountains, Forests, Lakes, Rivers, Canals, Aquaducts & Viaducts, Streams, Reseviours, Dams, Quarries, Caves, Mines, Railways, Castle's, Churches & endless Historical Buildings.  

There is something for everyone in Wales, young and old.

AIRPORTS & AIRFIELDS

If Aviation is your thing, then Wales is the place to be.

Wales only has one International Airport which is Swansea.

There are many smaller airports and airfields that provide a range of pleasure flights and flight training both for Aeroplanes and Helicopters, and which are the base of the Air Ambulances.

The military has a big presence in Wales, from Fast Jet Training flights from the Valley in Anglesey and through the 'Mach Loop', to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones) at Aberporth. We might even be getting a Space Port!

YOU CAN'T GET ANY CLOSER THAN THIS !

The 'Mach Loop'

Grab your camera's, binnoculars, sunglasses and ear-plugs.

You can't get much closer than this !

The 'Mach Loop' enables you to get up close and personal to view or photograph Military Fast Jets, Transport Planes and Helicopters as they fly through just feet away.

Come and wave to the Pilots !
