Dylan Thomas's head

Plenty of driving rain and overcast skies, muddy beaches, dilapidated resorts, cultural heritage and spectacular pre-glacial and post-glacial peat bogs, Wales is the perfect destination for a family mould spotting holiday.

For most tourists, a holiday in Wales is all about coming in out of the rain and playing the slot machines but, increasingly, English visitors are being drawn by its rich variety of different species of mould and fungus which thrive in the cold, damp, dismal weather.
Aberystwyth is a heady mix of Welsh Rarebit bars, folk museums and disused collieries, where run down hill villages contrast with statues of Dylan Thomas.

Llandudno is fundamentally a picturesque old folks rest home and is wonderfully diverse with its Bingo and sing along clubs. But all is set to change with a £50 tourism grant to develop and enhance Wales's phytological or peat bog and mould related heritage. Watch this space!
