A cycle tour of Wales taking in its 6 cities, 6 [Anglican] Cathedrals, across 7 Places. About 600 miles / 1000 km of road cycling with 35000 ft / 10000m ascent.

Swansea / St Davids / Bangor / St Asaph / Brecon / Newport / Cardiff

Swansea is a City without a Cathedral.

Brecon is not a City and has a Cathedral. I was surprised Newport has a Cathedral – it has, the grandly named “Newport Cathedral of St Woolos, King & Confessor”.

For completeness, the Catholic Cathedrals are in Swansea, Wrexham and Cardiff. For an overview of what City Status means, head over to the House of Commons Library.
