Wales is served by a number of direct train routes starting in London Paddington, London Euston, Portsmouth, Birmingham and Manchester. There are also coach connections from cities across England, plus direct flights to Cardiff from Aberdeen, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Jersey.
Exploring by car is straightforward in North and South Wales; driving through Mid Wales is slower, but scenic.
Coach and bus services connect most cities, as do train routes (particularly in North and South Wales).
The Wales Way is a family of three routes suited to walkers and cyclists: the Coastal Way runs for 180 miles along Cardigan Bay; the Cambrian Way leads for 185 miles between Llandudno and Cardiff; and the North Wales Way runs for 75 miles from the border to Anglesey.
