    not all trains suck but the train running london to glasgow sucks for causing sickness (the only train i ahve felt this all others have been fine for me) - and depending on where you are traveling from you might be on it all the way to crewe before veering off to north wales. but who knows.

    in northern wales there is snowdonia mountain - it has a railroad up it but closed in winter. I think to get on that you would go to Llanberis (there is another ruined castle just next to there this village too)

    Caernarfon Castle, Conwy Castle, Beaumaris Castle and Harlech Castle are the big 4 of north wales - there are smaller more ruined castles as well.
    Been to Caernarfon and Conwy- cost to enter but was neat. pretty comfy towns to wander around too.

    near bangor there is a nice suspension bridge - menai bridge, its pretty neat if you were in the neighborhood (its closed to cars currently but ok pedestrians). and below menai bridge there are some comfy built up costal paths. Bangor itself is fine i guess for uni students - a nead oldschool pier but i dont know what tourist appeal it has other htan being a potential hub of the area

    the town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll is not far which has the longest train station name if travelling somewhere jsut for the dumb name is of interest - dont think there is anything of note other than being a stop on the way into Angelsey island which has a costal path hike

    Brecon Beacons is another mountain/hilly nature area
    Pembrokeshire Coast is another coastal nature area
    St Davids is like the smallest city in uk or something - city defined by having a historical cathedral?

      I haven't been to wales since I was like 10 for a summer camp, but I remember the gorges, cliffs, and beaches were pretty cool. Idk which ones though. I also visited a slate mine and it was sick.

      So this is all in thr North, which I think ultimately may be our destination, but I have also considered just doing Cardiff & some small town nearby: thoughts on that?
      That would be the biggest accomodation to my brother who doesn't travel well.

      Well, it looks like we will be staying in Llanberis and Conwy.
      It seems like there is only ONE train from London to Bangor which will get us where we need to go: does that sound right?

    For the coomers: the favourite spots for locals aren't in the cities but in the fields outside. You can get your pick of white ones but also some black. Just be warned they're very hairy.

    You may want to think about the South more than the North.
    There are plenty of castles but there is more touristy things to do.
    For Castles you have Cardiff Castle and Caerphilly. You can go to the Roman museum in Caerleon (it's a good day trip from Cardiff and accessible with public transport) and see the remains of a Roman amphitheater there and Roman museum.
    For Arthur/Merlin stuff you can visit Craig-y-Dinas in the vale of Neath where according to legend Arthur is inside asleep. Some other legends say it was the last place in Britain that faeries were seen.
    Also in the area you have some pretty cool waterfalls which are an easy to walk to and the Dan Yr Ogof caves which are open to tourists aren't so far away.

    Dropping some links if you want to take a look:

    How many whales does Wales have?

      Whales are common enough off the coasts of Wales, as are dolphins and porpoise. Sometimes Basking Sharks are also seen.

    St gayans is an open air museum with reconstructions of buildings throughout Welsh history, dating back thousands of years. It's a bus ride from Cardiff City centre and either free or very cheap.

    Raglan Castle and Castle Coch are also good.
