The local area guide to living in Wales

Wales is a country located in the west of the UK, bordered by England to the east. It is best known for its beautiful scenery, vibrant green, rolling hills, mountainous regions and national parks. It has a Celtic heritage, its own language and holidays.

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 and branched out into the service and agriculture industries.

Nowadays, the country is famous for its sporting heritage, with rugby proving particularly popular. Tourism is also 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

With around 3 million residents, the most highly populated cities include the capital Cardiff, with an estimated population of 354,000 and Swansea with just over 240,000.

Nearby schools

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

Getting around

Cardiff is the main travel hub of Wales and 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.


Wales has no shortage of activities available from historical monuments, to scenic views, to everyday shopping and going out.

It has three National Parks with various trails and mountain hikes available. Perhaps the most well-known of these is Snowdonia National Park, which contains Wales' biggest mountain Mount Snowdon, attracting thousands of tourists every year.

Its 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. Street markets are quaint and offer a lively atmosphere, including 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.
