Best base city for North/South Wales?

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are traveling in Wales in early April. We are hoping to spend about 4 nights in North Wales and then we have 3 more nights, possibly spent in South Wales?

We won't have a car, but want to take the train/bus/walk most places (with the occassional taxi ride!)

Where is a good city to spend 4(ish) nights in North Wales? We hope to visit Snowdonia and the coast for sure. We would like to just get a base hotel or b&b and then explore from there. Not sure where a good central location would be...

Anywhere in the South that would be a good central location for the last 3 nights? I want to see Tintern Abbey as well as maybe taking the trip out to St. David's (if it's worth it?)

We are more into pretty scenery than the city scene, but like to have a good restaurant or pub to relax in after a busy day. :)

If you have other ideas besides the North and South, let me know! We are also spending 4 nights in London (a work conference for my boyfriend) and then 2 nights in Oxford to visit a friend. Thanks!
