If you want to hear the original British spoken then visit Wales. The English coined the word Welsh-which meant ‘foreigners’ but the Welsh called themselves ‘Cymraeg’ -comrades. That so many different peoples share these islands is a great strength and adds to our varied culture. Wales is a small country with a proud history from the industrial south to the rural mid Wales and Irish sea coast to the majestic grandeur of the Snowdonia mountaisn of the North and the coastal area of Gwynedd connecting to the ancient home of  the Druids the island of Anglesey.

The best way to see Wales is clockwise or anti clockwise with a venutre into the centre, pretty much as the Romans and the Normans all had to do..with their ring of castles around the coast from Conwy to Harlech to Pembroke to Chepstow.

Venture inland and the magnificent mountain ranges of Snowdonia in the North or the Brecon Beacons in the South while dropping further down to the modern capital city of Cardiff and the cosmopolitain towns of Swansea and Newport.
