YEAR OF LEGENDS 2017

In 2017 Wales is celebrating our epic past, present and future. This is our Year of Legends.

Yes, Wales is an ancient landscape, with thousands of years of history and myth. It’s a land of majestic mountains and mighty skies, fringed with an impressive coastline. But it’s also an epic land of thinking and high adventure. Everywhere you go, there are innovative ideas, in ancient places.

There are 230 beaches, 50 magical islands, and no fewer than 641 castles. Our capital, Cardiff, is a vibrant young European city which, in June 2017, hosts the world’s most watched annual sporting event, the UEFA Champions League Final.

Above all, Wales is a great place to enjoy here and now. There’s great food and drink, unique places to stay, adventurous activities and a legendary welcome.

This year we’re creating new legends. Want to come and find yours? Welcome to our Epic Land. #FindYourEpic
