West Point: 5 Reasons to Visit North Wales

5 Reasons to Visit North Wales

As the sun starts to come out from its hiding spot and visitors to West Point dust off their sunglasses, there couldn’t be a better time to visit North Wales as there aren’t many places which can beat it during the sunny season.

The reasons for spending your time here in the company of loved ones are almost limitless but here are just 5 selling points of our beautiful region for your interest.

1. The History

Historians and casual enthusiasts alike often descend on North Wales and that’s down to the amount of history and prestige steeped within its foundations. You’re never too far from a legendary castle or birthplace of a famous face so there is much to be investigated during your stay!

2. The Heights

When you think ‘mountains’, the first image that may come to mind is that of Wales: famously known for having more iconic ranges than anywhere else in the U.K.

This is especially the case when it comes to the northern region as it’s able to boast the likes of Snowdon and it’s lesser appreciated cousins such as Carnedd Llewelyn and Cadair Idris. Whether you’re hiking or just observing, the mountains of North Wales are certainly breath-taking!

3. The Events

Equal parts an ideal place to relax in tranquillity and a place to let your hair down and go wild, there’s always something to enjoy in the region that will appeal to all members of the family.

The Conwy Food Feast, Wakestock, Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza, Abersoch Jazz Festival and the Sci-Fi Weekender are just some of the events which are hugely beloved and are always well attended by locals and holidaymakers.

4. The Community Spirit

You won’t be greeted with a cheery “good morning” on your morning commute in the big city but in North Wales, there’s a real togetherness which you sadly don’t see enough of these days.

Whether they’re putting on local events for charity or all banding together for a good cause, the people of the area are a refreshing antidote to those you will meet in urban life and could provide the breath of fresh air that you need.

5. The Tranquillity

As previously mentioned, there’s a different pace to life in North Wales and a very different one if you’re living the 9-5, 5 days a week. Above all other reasons, it’s probably the relaxing nature of the region which keeps people coming back.

Unwind on the beach, explore a rural village or take a stroll around a local landmark – there’s such a sense of catharsis to be had when visiting North Wales that you may struggle to ever leave!
