5 Places To Visit In South Wales With Your VW Campervan

Caerphilly CastleIf you’ve contacted us in the past or have read one of our previous blog posts, you’ll know that we have an expansive knowledge about all things VW campervan conversion related.

Gaining a huge amount of experience over the years, we use this to ensure that the conversions we deliver to our customers are the ones that are going to be as perfectly suited to their needs as they can possibly be.

Allowing you to get the most enjoyment from your campervan wherever you take it, we understand that having a great campervan – although important – is only part of the equation, with where you drive it also a vital component.

And it’s because of this why today we wanted to draw on our other real knowledge base – South Wales!

With so much to see and do in this part of the world, it presents the perfect opportunity to take your campervan out and about – and these five places are some of the most highly recommended to visit.

1.  Cardiff

Some might consider this an easy or obvious mention, but the simple fact is if you’re visiting South Wales, you need to take the time to stop off at Cardiff.

A city that has developed considerably over the last two decades, it really does have something for everyone.  Sports.  Arts.  History.  Restaurants.  Nightlife.  Shopping.  Scenery.

As with every city around the world, not everyone falls in love with Cardiff, but it’s highly unusual for someone to visit and not, at the very least, find something that makes them want to return.

2.  Brecon Beacons

An absolutely stunning part of the country, for those who aren’t aware, the Brecon Beacons is a range of mountains that covers over 500 square miles.

Home to Pen Y Fan, the second largest peak in Wales at 2,907 feet above sea level (it falls just over 600 feet short of Snowdon), you could spend days walking across the ranges, taking in everything from the beautiful scenery to the masses of wildlife that call the area home.

3.  Caerphilly Castle

One of the largest and best preserved medieval fortresses in Britain, Caerphilly Castle really is a sight to behold.

Built in the latter part of the 13th century, it makes for a fantastic day out all year round, but having a huge events schedule, it’s worthwhile looking at what’s taking place to see if you can sample something additional on your visit (the Big Cheese Festival is a particularly great event!).

4.  Blaenavon

In the whole of Wales, there are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Blaenavon in the south of the country is one of the most popular.

Once a hub of industrial activity, the whole area has been preserved fantastically and with the Big Pit National Mining Museum offering a unique experience (you can travel to the underground mine), Blaenavon is without doubt worth a visit if you’re holidaying in South Wales.

5.  Merthyr Mawr

A quaint little village close to Bridgend, it’s not the village that we’re specifically recommending you visit, but the sand dunes on the coast.

Fantastic for an array of different reasons (for instance, they’re so awe-inspiring and appear to be from a whole other continent that scenes from the 1962 ‘Lawrence Of Arabia’ film were shot there), one of the best things you can do is take a sledge and have fun sliding down them – it might sound a little odd, but we practically guarantee you won’t be the only one doing it!

Doing our utmost to provide the best campervan conversions around, we like to completely and utterly satisfy our customers, which often includes telling them how – and where – they can get the most enjoyment and benefit from their campervan.
