Gay Wales - The Globetrotter Guys

Wales has a special place in our hearts given Sion grew up in North Wales.

For those that have not been, Wales is part of the UK (i.e England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland) and is a beautiful country with incredible landscapes and lots of adventures to be had.

But what about gay Wales?

From Sion’s perspective he did not see the gay side of wales at all growing up, it was non-existent at that time. It was only when he arrived at University in the gay capital of the North, Manchester, that he experienced his first gay bar.

So instead, we connected with fellow gay travel blogger Jack who is from South Wales to tell all about what is on offer to the gay traveller coming to Wales today and how accepting the country is from his personal perspective.

Gay Wales: An interview & travel advice with Jack

Hi Jack! If you could introduce yourself to our readers first that would be great before you tell us about gay Wales..

Hi! My name is Jack and I live in South Wales.

I created a travel Instagram and blog under the name Jack Runs The World, to be able to write about my travels, share travel tips, and share travel content.

It was something I had wanted to do for a while, but wasn’t sure how was best, and in the end I just decided to go for it, and it was one of the best things I’ve done!

I also write novels, mainly murder mystery, I work in TV when I’m not travelling, and I’ve recently started making music!

North Wales is fast becoming the adventure capital of the UK. Despite this being my home town, I had never truly appreciated what was available. Having the chance to experience North Wales as a tourist was an eye-opening experience and I am very excited to share some of the best things to do in North Wales with you.

We spent 48 hours in North Wales this winter with Visit Conwy to showcase the best things to do in North Wales for a weekend away.

One minute we were driving through the lush green countryside and half an hour later we found ourselves zip-lining though a deep underground mine! Our time here was exhilarating to say the least!

We loved the fact that even though it was winter, we could still just get wrapped up in our cosy winter jackets and have an amazing weekend away full of activities, adventure, scenic beauty and some good food to top it off!

Below you will find our 2-day North Wales Itinerary and a list of the best things to do in North Wales.

Gay North Wales

Gay North Wales - pixabay One of the world’s top adventure destinations, rugged and beautiful North Wales attracts discerning LGBT travelers from around the world. Add to this the British gay activity group OutdoorLads who will hold its annual Big Spring Camp here in 2017, plus a gay-owned country house hotel with royal connections for more comfortable adventures. North Wales is a destination sure to satisfy those wanting a wilder and more hirsute vacation, one where tank-tops and flip-flops are forsaken in favor of flannel shirts and Merrell hiking boots. A combination of dramatic landscapes plus purpose-built facilities has made North Wales a beacon for modern adventure tourism. Its jagged mountains, lakes, and wooded valleys are ideal natural terrain for sports such as climbing, kayaking, and mountain biking, while new man-made attractions, including an innovative surf lagoon and some record-breaking zip lines, provide adrenalin junkies with guaranteed thrills and screams. It’s in part due to these adventure-based attractions that North Wales was named one of the world’s top regions for travelers in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2017. This dramatic landscape will next take center stage in Director Guy Richie’s epic new movie King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which was filmed at locations across North Wales, most notably in Snowdonia National Park around the village of Capel Curig and on the slopes of the craggy mountain Tryfan. Due for release in 2017, the film sees Sons of Anarchy and UK Queer As Folk–actor Charlie Hunnam portray King Arthur as a hunky action hero, with a cast including Jude Law, Eric Bana, David Beckham, and Hunnam’s Queer As Folk co-star Aiden Gillen.
