Wales (Cymru in Welsh) is known for a distinct and scenic natural beauty that arguably stands unrivaled out of the constituent nations of the United Kingdom. The best times to visit are during the shoulder seasons, which are not too hot and not too cold. Those correspond with the months of April, May, and early June, and September and October. We would personally recommend focusing on April and May, as the weather, which tends to be very rainy to begin with, is a tad more agreeable with the cold of winter over and fewer showers on the horizon. This is also the time when the flowers and grasses in Wales`s fields reach their peak bloom and verdancy. In the pages below, we will let you know what to expect on the topics of weather, crowds, public holidays, and popular festivals in beautiful Wales.
