Default Going to Wales

We'll be spending a week in Wales next month. At home I usually wear jeans (or shorts) and a t-shirt. Getting "dressed up" means putting on a clean t-shirt and shoes. For "extra-dressed-up," I tuck in my shirt. Would this be inappropriate/rude for eating at restaurants in Wales? We don't go to fancy places.

Or should I take a skirt or dress? I don't need to impress anyone, I just don't want to be rude.

Welsh are not fancy people by any means. You'd fit in fine.

Wales is very casual , so unless you go somewhere really smart you will be fine in Jeans and T-Shirt.

You have absolutely nothing to worry about visiting Wales as far as how to dress. I've travelled all over Wales over the course of many years, so trust me and the others who have posted here.

Yeah - just relax and enjoy ..... I didn't spend much time in Cardiff, but did spend a decent amount of time in some of the smaller villages .... some really great memories of just relaxing by a creek, going through the countryside ..... I found the people to be fantastic, even if they are often the punchline for other Brits (my roomate and I used to mock this by having a typical "English" joke ... it simply went "Is he stupid?! - no he's just Welsh" followed by fake laughter)

We were in one town and were looking for a place to eat .... looked like a little restaurant in a home type setting was open, but as we approached it looked empty and closed .... well it was empty and the owners saw us look in and asked us to please come in and eat ....... they took really good care of us and the food was just down home goodness ... another great memory

You should have a blast - especially if you are casual in nature
