Wales in January 2015

So i've posted about transportation in Wales, which was very helpful, now I've found myself torn on whether I should try to stop in one of the villages in Snowdonia for a night or if I should go straight from the capital, Cardiff, to Caernarfon on the coast. I do understand that Wales in January typically means, rain, snow, wind and wasn't planning on doing the big hike up Snowdonia, but was thinking maybe just a easy walk on the trails that are in that area. Now i'm thinking it may just be…

Transportation in Wales

Hi all,

I'm going to Wales in January with my boyfriend on our month long Europe trip and have done some research about where to stay and what not, but specifically in the lonely planet book I like to use the recommended guide on what to do if your there for 3 or 5 days, but have noticed that a lot of the time these travel guides kind of assume your driving. Is it fairly easy to get around Wales by train/bus? For instance I will be going to the capitol Cardiff then to Snowdonia and then to…

Looking to explore Manchester & London nightlife aswell as historical sites!

Hey everyone :)
I am 22 and I have travelled to Manchester quite a lot but usually I don't stay there.. I go to Chorley to visit my boyfriend. But every time I go I don't get to explore Manchester properly and I REALLY want to go down south to London, Bath.. It's hard because I want to explore but others don't have the time! I would love to have a group of gals whom can have a chilled night and also explore the historical places in Manchester aswell as just touring around the city.

I would…

Accommodation for 20 near Snowdonia

Hi Everyone

I am in the process of organising a hen weekend for 20 girls in North Wales. Ideally we want to do something active during the day like canyoning or coasteering but I am struggling to find accommodation for 20people that isn't a bunkhouse.

Does anyone have any recommendations for holiday cottages in North Wales that sleep up to 20 people that would be good for a hen party weekend?

Thanks

Laura

Where to stay in the Brecon Beacons

Hi,
I am going to the Brecon Beacons in late November for three days and was wondering where the best place to base yourself is if you have no car?

I will be staying at a hostel in Abergavenny for a couple of days anyway (birthday party), and then want to spend three more days somewhere in the general area.
We are keen to do a lot of walking, and would like to be able to walk to selection of places to have dinner ideally.

Thanks!

Freedom of Wales pass

Hi!

Can anyone advise if the Freedom of Wales pass is good value for money and flexibility? I have ten days in Wales and am planning to travel from Cardiff to Holyhead. I was hoping to rent a car but pretty much nowhere will take my money seen as I'm under 25... or they want way more than I can afford! I am a little confused though - does the pass mean you can jump on any train/bus that has space for you? Or do you have to book each trip ahead? I don't see how as you can only buy at a ticket…

10 days Wales (late October)

Hi!

I am a 23 year old South African female travelling on as much of a budget as possible. I have 10 days in Wales in late October. I arrive in Cardiff on the 21st of October and leave from Holyhead - Dublin on the 31st.

I am feeling a little confused by the transport options... many have said that I should hire a car, but I have also heard that the weather (i.e. rain) makes for very difficult driving, and that the fuel costs are very high. Are the trains/buses that bad? I am used to driving…

Advice on career or travel?!

Hi everyone,
I'm 23, living at home and it's always been my dream to take a year out to travel.

It has come to the time where I need to make my choice as I have been offered a the chance to become a police officer, however this means I would not be able to travel for 2 years as you need that much service before you can get a career break granted. Plus I know if I go for it then in two years I will have a mortgage etc to worry about which would be game over.
I work for the police anyway in…
