With Easter just around the corner, there’s still time to book an unforgettable holiday that the whole family will enjoy. Don’t worry if you can’t afford to jet off into the sun, as there’s a great family holiday destination right on your own doorstep. It may not have the weather of the Canary Islands, but Wales has a unique charm and atmosphere of its own, and more than enough family attractions to keep you going for weeks.

Here we take a look at five of best.

1. Snowdonia National Park – Home of the tallest mountain in Wales and many more peaks besides, Snowdonia is a great place for climbing, trekking and marvelling at the awe inspiring scenery.

2. Portmeirion – One of Wales’ biggest surprises, Portmeirion is a unique Mediterranean-style village with an improbably warm micro-climate to match. If you’re old enough to remember TV series The Prisoner, starring Patrick McGoohan, colourful Portmeirion will seem very familiar indeed.

3. Castles and Culture – Wales has a staggering number of castles from an assortment of periods. Must-sees include Conwy Castle, Penrhyn Castle, Caernarfon Castle, Beaumaris Castle and Powis Castle.

4. Cardiff – As the capital city of Wales, Cardiff has lots to do for families on holiday. In addition to great shopping and dining to be had, the city has plenty of attractions, including the Millennium Stadium, St Fagan’s National History Museum, Cardiff Castle, Llandaff Cathedral and more besides.

5. Brecon Beacons – Finally, for some truly breathtaking vistas, invigorating hikes and the chance to glimpse some wildlife, be sure to check out Wales’ Brecon Beacons National Park.
