The local area guide to living in Wales

Wales is a country located to the East of the UK; bordered by England to the West. It is best known for its beautiful scenery; vibrant green hills which roll on for miles, with mountainous regions and national parks scattered about the country. It has a Celtic heritage; consisting of its own language, holidays and natives to the country - though the majority of the population are still British.

The beginning of the 20th century saw Wales prospering as a result of the coal boom, which resulted in the population increasing by over 20%. Following the Industrial Revolution, the country was forced to source post-industrial methods of modernising the economy, and as a result Wales branched out into the service and agriculture industries to fuel its economy. For this reason, the country became extremely well known for its roots in sheep farming.

Nowadays, the country is well known for a variety of reasons. Amongst various others, the sport of rugby is particularly popular in Wales, with the Welsh rugby team having harboured a friendly rivalry against the other national teams in the United Kingdom for years.

Tourism is particularly important to the country. Be it the mountainous national parks which attract visitors keen on hiking, the rich Welsh culture and history or the general beauty of the country pulling people in; the tourist economy is highly important.

Information about the local residents

Of the reported 3 million residents, 96% have identified as being White-British, with the majority of those not falling under this category identifying as British Asian. Of those who were not born in Wales, the majority of this population originated in England and moved over to the country.

Some of the most highly populated cities include the country's capital Cardiff, with a population of an estimated 354,000 and Swansea with just over 240,000. These numbers have gradually increased since the 1991 census, with Cardiff's population increasing by nearly 75,000 in that time.

Nearby schools

With over 1500 primary schools, over 200 secondary schools and around 50 independent schools available; there are plenty of schools to choose from in Wales. The Welsh Education system is different to that in England, as they have recently implemented a colour coding system to rate schools, and replace the 'banding' system previously used across the country by governing body Estyn.

As is expected, the performance of these schools varies throughout the country, however some of the top performing schools include Ysgol Uwchradd Tywyn in Tywyn, North Wales, and Cardiff High School, which saw the highest average GCSE performance in Wales in the recent 2015 exams.

Getting around

Cardiff is the main travel hub of Wales; there are two main railway stations, Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street. There is also an urban rail which travels around the city. Cardiff International Airport is Wales' main airport and provides flights all around the world.

Another travel option is the various ferry ports which travel to and from Ireland from the west side of the country.

Local shops

Wales has no shortage of activities available; from historical monuments, to scenic views, to everyday shopping and going out - there is certainly an appeal for all in the country.

Wales has 3 National Parks to choose from; with various trails and mountain hikes available. Perhaps the most well-known of these is Snowdonia National Mark, which contains Wales' biggest mountain Mount Snowdon. This attracts thousands of tourists every year. This beautiful country is rich with historical and cultural relevance, and its monuments reflect this. Various castles and remaining bits of architecture have survived the ages and are available to view in various cities and towns around the country.

Predictably, Wales' largest shopping centre is located in Cardiff; St David's shopping centre attracted over 75 million customers in the first two years of being open. Wales' street markets are quaint and offer a lively atmosphere. This includes Abergavenny Market, which has over 200 stalls on Tuesdays, selling everything from food to instruments to antiques. Another popular market is Wales' largest, Swansea Market, in which all sorts of weird and wonderful purchases can be made.
