Through Wales without a Tardis

Ah, Wales. The country with the most impressive and baffling language. It was even used in the Bosnian conflict, where a Welsh regiment used the language for as a way to “encrypt” communication.

Road signs in Cambrian are not for the faint of heart. The town of “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch” (no joke) has the second longest location name in the world. Sometimes it is shortened to “Llanfairpwllgwyngyll” (wow, so much easier).

Cardiff is the capital of Wales, but perhaps better known in some groups as the home of the Doctor. The town features the world’s only Doctor Who Exhibition, situated in the Bay. Locations such as Millennium Centre and Eddie’s Diner are featured in several episodes of BBC’s Doctor Who. The town is also featured heavily in Sherlock, as well as Torchwood who had their headquarters here. The heartbreaking “Bad Wolf” bay in Southerndown is just half an hour to the west of town. There’s so much to see that you would need a Tardis to see it all.
