The Wales Way
Tipped to be as popular as the North Coast 500, Visit Wales has curated three new national routes for you to explore the heart of Wales. Choose from The Coastal Way, The Cambrian Way or The North Wales Way. Each route is different, showcasing the very best of the Welsh countryside.
North Coast 500
Inverness Castle, Scotland
Created in 2014, this route officially starts and ends in Inverness and is a circular trip which follows 500 miles along the coastal edges of the North Highlands, taking in the villages and towns of places like Ullapool, Durness, John O'Groats and Dornoch. Travel in April, early May and mid-September for the best weather and views.
Land’s End and Lizard Peninsular, Cornwall
Iconic sign at Land's End, Cornwall
Two of Cornwall’s most famous landmarks are a must for your touring holiday in 2018. First up, the UK’s most south-westerly point Land’s End is a fantastic place for nature lovers with reported sightings of gannets, grey seals, basking sharks and even dolphins in and around the high cliff. Enjoy a walk around the cliff top and stop to have your picture taken at the famous signpost.
Drive east and you’ll discover Lizard Peninsular which is designated an area of scientific interest and is home to one of the world’s best beaches - Kynance Cove, exotic subtropical plants, rugged caves and exquisite bays.
Stanage Edge, Peak District
Stanage Edge, Peak District
Popular with hikers, this flat top mountain in the Peak District is the UK’s answer to Table Mountain. Four miles of cliff make up Stanage Edge - the perfect place for long walks and amazing views. Stop off at the village of Hathersage and walk in the footsteps of Jane Eyre or visit St Michael and All Angels' Church - a must for Robin Hood fans.
