Over the Bridge to Wales

Restrictions are getting tighter, so for the time being we can't welcome visitors Over the Bridge to Wales. But that doesn't stop you dreaming and planning. We've got fabulous castles, intriguing gardens, great spots for picnics and walks, as well as lots of activity opportunities (kayaking, cycling and gliding to mention a few) - so take a look and dream about visits when we all open up. We'd love to welcome you back to Wales!

Businesses are working hard to ensure that as well as being safe, they continue to offer a unique, Welsh welcome for all visitors when they are able to open up again - look out for the "We're Good to Go" mark which will reassure you that attractions, accommodation and food venues are all doing the very best to welcome you safely.
