If taking along your four legged friend, pet friendly beaches and places to stay can be found all over South Wales.

The South Wales city breaks are not like your London Breaks or typical UK short breaks. You’ll find lots to do and places to visit and no trip to Cardiff would be complete without a look around Cardiff Castle and Cardiff Bay.

Stay in one of the many Cardiff spa hotels and if you’re looking for great deals on flights then check out the last minute flights straight into Cardiff airport.

Swansea City is famous for its beautiful Mumbles area and Gower Peninsula, but if you’re looking for a bit of nightlife then take a wander down to Wind Street, this is where you’ll now find a concentration of pubs clubs and restaurants.

If you’re a golfing fan visiting Wales then you’ll already be familiar with the Welsh city of Newport. Home to the Celtic Manor Resort where, in 2010, they hosted the Ryder Cup.

With world class mountain biking at Afan Forest Park, the seaside at Aberavon Beach and Waterfall Country on the doorstep, the outdoors in Neath Port Talbot are well worth a visit.

The South East section of the Wales Coast Path covers the full length of South Wales Cities and Coast region from Newport through to the Gower.
