Welcome to Wales If you haven’t already guessed, I’m from Wales. For those of you that aren’t 100% sure Wales is part of the United Kingdom, not part of England! Believe me when I say that if you ask a Welsh person if they’re from England you will get a ‘look’. Most people who visit the UK tend to head for London and Scotland.
