Take a road trip through wild Wales
While Scotland’s North Coast 500 driving route still has locals grumbling over the increased traffic, Wales has learned that variety is the answer. It has launched not one but three new road trips: the Cambrian, the Coastal and the North Wales ways. Combine them into one 700km epic or drive them over a trio of weekend breaks. We like the look of the 290km Coastal Way, which starts in the UK’S smallest city, St David’s, before winding past Cardigan Bay, medieval castles and the Italianate village of Portmeirion plus a smorgasbord of pubs, breweries, chocolatiers and even vineyards. A truly tasty escape.
