How well do you think you know Wales? Do you know the name of the river that runs through Cardiff? What about how tall Mount Snowdon is? Then it’s time to test yourself with our fun Wales quiz questions.

We are desperate to visit Wales again and explore the beauty of the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia National Park. We can’t wait to go hiking in Wales again at some point in the near future and enjoy the stunning countryside.

As that doesn’t look like it’ll happen for the next few weeks though, we wanted to put together this Welsh quiz to put you to the test. Even though we can’t hit the pub gardens yet but we can enjoy a good ol’ virtual pub quiz, especially with a few friends. So, the next time you’re looking for something to do on a Friday night, think about hosting your very own virtual pub quiz.

Alternatively, see how well you can do right now! Whether you want to use our questions to host your very own Wales quiz over Zoom, or test your brain power right now, we wish you luck. Our suggestion – find a sunny spot, get yourself a nice cold beer and see how many questions you can get right.

Ready? Then good luck!
