The three wales

  1. “North Wales has been the haunt of tourists and holiday-makers since mountain scenery became the fashion in the eighteenth century. (…)
  2. South Wales has impressive mountains ranges, the grandest cliffs in all Wales in the Gower Peninsula and Prembrokeshire, the loneliest islands, the rarest and most plentiful bird-life, the most celebrated river valleys, the greatest number of Marcher Castles in all their splendour, the cathedrals of St. Woolos, Brecon, Llandaff and St. David’s, monastic remains, Celtic crosses, and three of the four constituent colleges fo the University of Wales, at Cardiff, Swansea and Aberystwyth. (…)
  3. The Wye Valley: the river Wye runs the gamut of scenery and of Welsh and English history in its 135-mile journey from its source on the lonely slopes of Plynlimmon, across the wild moors where Owain Glyndwr and his fierce warriors once gathered, to its confluence with the Severn at Chepstow, with its great castle. It has been called with justice ‘possibly the most beautiful, romantic, and legend-haunted river in England or Wales’.”
