We're planning a trip to Wales in July.
What's on?
We're already planning to attend the Royal Welsh Show.
So around those dates.

What else is a must see while we're in Wales?

TIA
Jacquie

Aww thankyou. We'll be hiring a snail to get around in so we can be a bit more flexible with our dates.

We've heard that the general public can't attend the first day?
So the last 3 days of it.
We've allowed 3 days for the show.
What's within an hour or so of Builth Wells that we can have a look at if we're finished with the show?

Prior to the RWAS we'll be in the Abergavenny area for 2 nights.
Big Pit mine. Anything else?

After RWAS we're planning 2 nights in Caerphilly to attend their festival.
Anything else worth seeing in that area?

The Elan Valley is worth a visit - just up the road from Builth Wells near Rhayader.

Brecon Beacons are just down the road.

After your two nights in Caerphilly at The Big Cheese, why not try to fit in Castell Coch (five minute drive) and perhaps Cardiff Castle (20 mins from
Castell Coch). Both worth a visit, owned by Marquis of Bute and the architect was William Burgess for both. Castell Coch is absolutely beautiful, set in woodlands and every room is a treat - as is Cardiff Castle - but in Castell Coch you are just left to your own devices to wander round, whereas in Cardiff, it's guided tours.
Enjoy yourselves !
