What to do in wales when it rains

When it comes to great holidays in the UK, visiting Aberystwth and staying in a caravan is a huge favourite for many families. Caravan holidays in Wales have been popular for many years and that doesn’t look like it will be changing any time soon, however when it rains, as it often does in the UK, you may need to stay indoors and find something else to keep the family occupied. After all, the majority of activities at many holiday parks in Wales are outdoors and aren’t as enjoyable when it’s cold and raining.

A great way to combat this boredom and to help pass the time is to take a few of your favourite board games on holiday with you. If you’re looking for things to do on caravan holidays if it rains then look no further, we’ve got some great board games for you to choose from.

11 Amazing days out and things to do in Aberystwyth and West Wales

A really popular resort in West Wales is Borth, which is north of Aberystwyth on the coast. You can walk the sand dunes of nearby Ynyslas. It's an extraordinary place, very mystical. It takes you back to the fundamentals of life. Borth also has an animalarium with meerkats, a black panther and reptiles all looked after by these bohemians. The children will love it!

Come Walk With Me!

I don’t know if its just me, but walks are great! I always have fond memories of family holidays that are made while on these walks. The first that always comes to mind is when the whole family were walking about 3 miles to a beach where you could watch the seals play in the crests of the waves and I fell over practically nothing (I am a little bit clumsy on my feet), but seconds later we were all practically wetting ourselves with laughter. Even writing about it now, almost 10 years later, I have a big grin on my face and feel a nostalgia for home.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere I go!

With the Americanisation, or even Disneyfication of our towns and cities, apart from the obvious landmarks, pretty much everywhere looks the same, same uniform Mcdonalds, same Costa, same Frankie and Benny’s, same Clothes shops, same, same, same.
