During its Year of Adventure, Wales is fast becoming a tourist hot spot and one of the key attractions is the Royal Welsh Show.

The four-day spectacle (18th to 21st July inclusive) takes place at Llanelwedd, Builth Wells, Powys and celebrates Welsh and British agriculture at its best.

If you’ve visited agricultural shows before, then you’ll know that 7,000 entries (in 2015) for the livestock classes is simply vast! Such is the popularity of the Royal Welsh with farmers and breeders gathering from far and wide.
