Wales is a green country for a reason—it rains here any time of year. The shoulder season from April through May is the best time to visit Wales when flowers bloom, Atlantic puffins take over Skomer, and baby lambs roam the fields. Summer is the busiest season of the year with nice weather but higher prices, so early booking is a good idea. Time from June to August is full of exclusive events like the Big Cheese Festival and Eisteddfod, the celebration of Welsh culture. The breezy period between September and November sees dispersing crowds, more affordable hotel rates, stunning forest hues, and craziness of Porthcawl Elvis Festival. Welsh winters offer lots of things to do from Saundersfoot New Years Day Swim to watching starling murmuration and snow hiking.
