Discover a Taste of Wales The Welsh Lovespoon A handcrafted gift made from a solid block of wood, the tradition of a male admirer crafting a lovespoon for a young woman indicated to the woman’s family that he was skilled and capable with his hands. The oldest existing lovespoon in Wales dates back to 1667. Each specific carving on the spoon is symbolic, from the eternal love of the Celtic knot, to the twisted stem indicating togetherness.

The Leek

St David

The leek is the national emblem of Wales. According to legend the patron Saint of Wales St David on the eve of the battle against the Saxons advised Welsh soldiers to wear leeks in their caps so as to easily distinguish friend from foe.

Patron Saint of Wales. On 1 March each year we celebrate our patron Saint, Dewi Sant or St David who died on that day in 589AD

From Iron Age hill forts and seaside towns to big open spaces, clean fresh air, miles of tracks and trails, exciting

festivals and action packed outdoor activities; this stunning part of the world has all the makings of an unforgettable holiday. Ninety minutes after leaving Liverpool, Manchester or Birmingham, you could be afloat on one of Britain’s most beautiful waterways - the Llangollen Canal.
