Camping in the Brecon Beacons named a 'must do' in Wales

The top ten things that every visitor to Wales must do has been revealed, with camping in the Brecon Beacons featuring at number three, reports.

The list, which was devised by survival expert Bear Grylls and compiled from results of a 2,000-person survey, rates climbing Snowdonia as the number one Welsh experience. Next on the list was visiting the unique Italianate village of Portmeirion, with Brecon camping coming in third.

Crossing the Severn Bridge, visiting Swansea's famous seaside resort The Mumbles and trekking the black mountains came from fourth to sixth respectively. Making up the latter part of the top ten were visiting the Great Glasshouse at the National Botanical Gardens of Wales, climbing the cliffs at Cardigan Bay, visiting Great Orme and surfing the Severn Bore.

Elsewhere around Britain, the Lake District was chosen at number one for the 'seven natural wonders of the UK', whilst Stonehenge took number one in the 'manmade' category.

Grylls has a strong link with Wales, as he owns the island of St Tudwal West off Abersoch. He was joined on the panel by managing director of Discovery Networks UK & Ireland, Susanna Dinnage, who told "It's lovely to see great British experiences such as visiting Stonehenge during the summer solstice and celebrating New Year's Eve in Edinburgh feature so highly.

"Be it adventures on home soil or experiencing life-defining moments further afield, we believe there's always more to know, to experience and to explore."
