    North Wales is a place of natural beauty with roaming hillsides, mountain ranges, great beaches and plenty to see and do.

    However, it’s a place like much of the British Isles when the weather is bad it is not at the forefront of most peoples mind. We instead dream of warmer and sunnier climates in the tropics or Mediterranean. Last week two brothers on the hit ITV show Britain’s Got Talent – Richard and Adam Johnson – sang a well know song from the sixties in a classical style with harmonies that were simply out of this world. They left one question in our minds, and no doubt the minds of many people up and down the country. Where are they from?

    Well, the Johnson brothers are from North Wales and with voices like those, Wales could be the only place in the British Isles where they could have originated.  After all, it is home to many of the best singers and Choirs the UK have ever produces – Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey – to name but two.

    It is often said that there is something in the water in Wales, which is the reason why the country produces so many great singers. Whether or not there is any truth in that, I guess no one really knows, but what we do know is that there is plenty of water in Wales and if you are looking for a place to have fun in the water then there are plenty of choices in North Wales and one place to highlight is the Stanley Embankment.

    Stanley Embankment near Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesey is an ideal spot to catch a tidal wave particularly if you are a fan of white water rafting.

    This video show very much the type of fun you can have at that location on the river:

    If rivers are not quite your thing, then why not take a train to the top of mount Snowdon, or journey deep inside an electric mountain at Elidir. You may also which to tour one of 11 National Trust properties, or even bike on four wheels at Glasfryn Parc, trot on four legs at Tal y Foel Riding Centre, or try Wales’ first bouncing pillow at the Greenwood Forest Park.
