Travel to Wales

1. It is possible to travel directly to Wales by air if you intend to visit the Cardiff area in the south?

2. How do I get from London to Aberystwyth by train and bus?

3. Can I get a rental car on the weekend when I arrive in one of the train or bus stations in Wales?

Travel while in Wales

Consider travel by car, bus and train. It is not always convenient to visit smaller towns, villages or farms by bus or train. Travel from east to west in both the north and south of the country is relatively simple, but if you plan to go to central Wales plan extra time for the beautiful winding roads and slow traffic.

What to do while in Wales

Consider making electronic copies and saving the new information on a website or other alternate source.
