If you love Wales and all things Welsh, this excellent magazine is for you. It calls itself “a celebration of all things Welsh”, and it admirably fulfills that mandate.

The magazine covers Welsh lifestyle, culture and current affairs. The Spring 2001 issue has an open letter from Jan Morris, author of The Matter of Wales. An interview with a Welsh artist, Aneurin Jones, talks of his early life in Wales and the development of his career. Fascinating and detailed historical/heritage articles cover Dinefwr Old Castle and Newton House, Eglwys a Chapel, and Valle Crucis Abbey. A regular series of articles on towns discusses the town of Machynlleth and its past and present. A biographical sketch, book and music reviews, a country diary, and a photographic essay complete the issue along with a special section on the arts and a fiction story.
The writing in this magazine is literate, intelligent, well researched, and catches the reader’s interest. High quality photography is used throughout the magazine. I can’t say enough good things about this magazine. This is not a travel/tourism magazine, but one for those who want to know more about Wales and what makes it unique. Cambria is the official in-flight magazine of Air Wales (Awyr Cymru).
