Wales What to Pack

  • Rain Gear

    Protection from rain and always have something warm, even in summer. The British weather is unpredictable. We were lucky and had lovely weather, with one or two quick thunderstorms only.

A hairbrush is a must, and soap, because you can get real muddy and scutty looking after a long hike! A good camera is a must for all the castles and...

  • Packing List
