Welsh Bucket List

This is our Welsh Bucket List.  A list of 30 places we’d like to visit or activities we’d like to do in Wales over the next few years.  Since taking this list from the Wales Online Website earlier this year I have added a further 9 places right on our door step that we would either love to do again or experience for the first time.

    Hi! I love this list! I recently moved to North Wales from Scotland and have been having a ball exploring the local area (I live in Harlech). I’ve done a few of these, so far, but I didn’t know some even existed! Thanks for the tips.

    Love this list! We are moving to N Wales this week for 5 months from Canada. I’m a blogger there (www.valleyfamilyfun.ca) so your list is great for us, too! THANKS!
