Discover an area of Wales that's packed with natural beauty

With around a third of the region covered by a National Park, it's no surprise that South Wales is such a popular retirement destination.

You'll find prehistoric remains and the island of Worm's Head next to three miles of sandy beaches at Rhossili Bay, part of the first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty designated in the UK. You can wander through 130 acres of Capability Brown-landscaped gardens at Cardiff's Bute Park, or see more than 2,000 different plants at the botanical Clyne Gardens in Swansea.

At Brecon Beacons National Park, you'll find Sandstone Mountains, curious caves and towering waterfalls, as well as ponies and sheep that graze in the area. You can ride the Brecon Mountain Railway, or hike to the top of Pen y Fan, the highest peak in Britain south of Snowdonia, with views that reach as far as the Bristol Channel.

Retire to a region that's rich with history

From ruined abbeys to industrial canals, there are plenty of intriguing historical sights to see around South Wales.

You can visit the second-largest castle in Britain at the lakeside Caerphilly Castle, go 300 feet into an underground coal mine at the Big Pit in Blaenavon, or take a tour of the exuberant stately rooms at the 17th-century Tredegar House, near Newport.

You'll find more than 40 rebuilt buildings representing different parts of Wales at the open-air St. Fagans National History Museum, exhibits around innovation and industrial revolution at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, and archaeology, botany and geology at the National Museum Cardiff.
