Celebrating 100 Years of Roald Dahl in Wales


This is the “Year of Adventure” in Wales, but the country is also celebrating the birth of one of its most famous sons — iconic storyteller Roald Dahl. Dahl created fantastical adventures that are truly out of this world, and visitors can get to know the country of the author’s birth through his eyes in the city where he grew up and in his favorite places to visit as a child.

These are the locales that inspired such favorites as “James and the Giant Peach,” “Matilda” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” The beauty of Wales was planted like a seed in Dahl’s mind and worked to influence his writing and the stories that have enlivened the imaginations of children throughout modern literary history.
