2017 Wales Year of Legends

Theme Year

Yes, Wales is an ancient landscape, with thousands of years of history and myth wherever you look. We speak a language that’s a living link with King Arthur and our Celtic ancestors. It’s a land of majestic mountains and mighty skies, fringed with a famously beautiful coastline. But it’s also a land of epic thinking and high adventure. Everywhere you go, there are bright new ideas, in very old places: zip wires, mountain bike trails, inland surfing – and the world’s first complete coastal path.

Wales is a place where the familiar meets the unfamiliar. Classic castles, passionate sporting legends and momentous occasions like NATO and the Ryder Cup punctuated with glorious grassroots festivals like Festival Number 6, The Good Life Experience and ‘Man vs Horse.’

We’ve perfected the art of surprise and adventure, from adrenaline-fuelled zip lines in old disused mines to a surf mecca in an inland industrial site. Reinvention is our game…and we encourage you to create your own legends in Wales, whether fuelled by food, festivals or high adventure.
