Wales is not in England

Here at FlyCardiff we're passionate about Wales as a Country and what it has to offer the foreign tourist. However we are frustrated that outside of the UK very few people know where Wales is and those that do think it is part of England. !

So with the Nato Summit coming to Wales in September, a fantastic opportunity for Wales to showcase itself to the world, we thought we'd do our bit to spread the word and put the record straight.
Wales is a Country in its own right, it shares a border with England, is situated to the West of England and is around 170 miles (256 km) long and 60 miles (96 km) wide.
It has its own National Assembly Government which has powers to make decisions for Wales, having had these powers devolved (given) to them by the UK Parliament.
You can fly direct to its Capital City Cardiff already from a number of destinations or via 'hub airports' such as Amsterdam, Dublin and Barcelona.

Wales is truly open for business and welcomes tourists and weve listed a few of its amazing attractions to whet your appetite:

Offas Dyke built by King Offa to quell the unruly Welsh in the 780s.

Fantastic castles and according to
www.VisitWales.com  has the most castles per square mile than anywhere else – 641 to be exact  
      

Award winning beaches such as Rhossili.


3 national parks: Brecon Beacons. Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire

We could go on and add to our list but to summarise Wales offers a warm welcome to tourists from North to South.

And finally ……. We look forward to seeing Mr President, the First Lady and their girls on Rhossili beach next year.

Dream big #TeamWales
