Wales has much to offer year-round travellers, but good weather makes its scenery more absorbing. The high season from July through August sees the best weather, top festivals and higher prices. As a popular UK vacation spot, it can get particularly crowded during school and public holidays. To avoid the crowds but still benefit from the weather, June and September are great times to visit. The period from April to June is among the driest outside of summer, offering pleasant walks in the country. October can be equally captivating with autumn foliage but prepare for downpours and dress accordingly. The winter period can be charming in big towns and cities, but snow can close mountain paths. Some prized events to plan for include Hay Festival (May), National Eisteddfod (August) and Abergavenny Food Festival (September).
