WHERE WE ARE
A Principality within Britain
Wales is easily accessible
from London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports but Cardiff, the capital city, has
its own airport. Travellers from Europe may well find this more convenient.
If you are coming via London Heathrow or Gatwick, chances are that you have
come a long way. If you had a choice, you would have chosen Heathrow since this
is nearer to Wales.
If you are heading for North Wales from London you could take the
tube, a bus or a taxi to London Euston railway station (tube will be cheapest).
Trains leave for Holyhead hourly.There is normally a change at Crewe and the
train gets to Prestatyn in 3 hours. Holyhead takes just over 4 hours. The
nearest airport for North Wales is at Manchester; this is just a 90 minute
drive from Holyhead.
From both Heathrow and Gatwick there is a regular bus service to South
Wales (via Newport and Cardiff). Heathrow passengers can also take a bus to
Reading British Rail Station and pick up a train for South Wales. Gatwick
passengers can take the Gatwick Express train into London Victoria rail station.
An underground (tube) journey takes the traveller to Paddington rail station
from where trains run to Wales every 40 minutes in peak time.
