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.

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!
