Snowdonia gives readers wanderlust!

Snowdonia wins award for best destination

The Snowdonia National Park wins coveted reader award!

Snowdonia is making the headlines again this morning having won a coveted award from travel magazine Wanderlust. Our national park walked away with the title of Best Destination, knocking long-time winners the Lake District off the top spot. Another beautiful Welsh destination, Pembrokeshire, took second place proving that Wales has really secured its place as a world-class travel destination.

The annual travel awards, run this year in association with the Money Shop, asked readers to rate various aspects of their travel over the previous 12 months – everything from airlines flown with to destinations visited – and the results were unanimous. A clear winner, Snowdonia took the top spot, with the win made all the sweeter with the top rating coming from readers, the people who love and visit our wonderful national park.

With the Year of Adventure under our belts and the Year of Legends underway it’s shaping up to be another epic year for Wales!
