- Times to Travel: Wales' climate is much milder than expected (considering its location), as all of the British Isles are warmed some by the powerful Gulf Stream current as it makes its way north through the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean from the Gulf of Mexico.
There certainly are exceptions, but in general terms winters are damp, mild and quite windy, while summers are pleasant with frequent cloudy days.
Wales can be rainy, especially in fall and the early winter months, and much like Scotland, conditions can change quickly along the western coastline and in the high mountains of the northwest.
Most travelers agree that May through September are the best months to visit.
