Explore photography in Wales

For a small country, Wales provides a huge variety of photographic opportunities. The scenery can change so much in the space of a few miles. It combines the remotest places and the busiest people, two extremes of opportunity for anyone wanting to take pictures while they enjoy a holiday.

Take one step away from busy modern life and you can be exploring a history that goes back thousands of years, ruined buildings and echoes of the country’s extraordinary history.

And, as you travel, enjoy the delights of our famous hospitality, friendly people and welcoming places to stay.
