So you’re moving to Wales.
Apparently you need to live in a country with more castles per square mile than anywhere in the world, a sheep population that dwarfs the human population and town names that require special equipment to pronounce.
Try this one: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch, which is the longest town name in the world. Locals just call it Llanfair, but this song might help you pronounce the long version. Good luck!
Wherever you live
It’s best that you bone up on Welsh legislation regarding rent, deposit schemes and tenancy agreements.
You may rent through a letting agency or you may let directly from a property owner, but either way, we know you’re too smart to arrive at your new home anything but fully informed.
Air, bus or rail. Oh my.
The good news is Wales is a gorgeous country that inspires much hiking, trail walking, camping and cycling.
The better news is if you need to travel farther than your stompers can carry you, Wales has transport options like intra-Wales air, public buses within the cities, rails and bus services that travel throughout Wales for all your travel needs.
If you prefer to get in your own car and drive, you’ll find everything you need to know in this handy guide on all things driving in Wales.
