Day 1 The Welsh Capital: Cardiff
Begin your adventures of Wales with a tour of the nation’s capital city, Cardiff, before heading to Glyndwr, the oldest vineyard in Wales. Enjoy a talk & tour as well as a sample of some of their fine wines before a relaxed lunch in the grounds.
Day 2 In the valleys...
Journey into the Southern Welsh Valleys, home to the National Coal Mining Museum ‘Big Pit’ – here you descend a real mine and learn more about how coal mining it shaped an entire nation. Continue into the scenic Wye Valley to the romantic ruins of Tintern Abbey, one of Britain’s most important monastic ruins. Return back to Cardiff via Caerleon, a small town which marks the site of one of only three permanent Roman Legionary fortresses across Britain – maybe even the home of King Arthur’s Camelot…
Day 3 Northwards - along the coast
With glorious beaches, a warm atmosphere and fine Victorian houses painted in sugared almond colours, Tenby in Pembrokeshire is one of our prettiest and cosiest seaside towns. Enjoy a quick stop-off here before continuing through Aberystwyth towards Snowdonia National Park.
Day 4 Snowdonia - the peak of it all
Enjoy a relaxing day in Snowdonia National Park with a dramatic rail journey to Wales’ highest point on Mount Snowdon. At 3,560ft you are truly on “the rooftop of Wales” and enjoy, weather permitting, spectacular views.
Day 5 Isle of Anglesey
Discover the world of coastal Wales and explore the Isle of Anglesey, rich in history thanks to its Viking, Celtic and Medieval settlers. Soak in the leisurely drive along the coastline, dotted with stunning views, quaint towns and golden beaches. See Beaumaris Castle, King Edward I’s last and largest - and still unfinished. Marvel at the 1826-constructed Menai Bride and then, head to the little village that’s known for its impossibly long name and quirky souvenirs…
Day 6 UNESCO World Heritage in Llangollen
Enjoy a morning at leisure in the quaint town of Llangollen - stroll along the Victoria Promenade, enjoy the Riverside Park or watch the river tumble down beneath the bridge. In the afternoon, experience a fantastic Pontcysyllte Aqueduct canal boat trip on a motorised boat, taking you along a five mile stretch of the Llangollen Canal which runs along the picturesque Dee Valley. Your 2 hour trip includes a crossing of the world famous aqueduct, also known as the ‘Stream in the Sky’, as well as a light lunch onboard.
Day 7 A short visit to Chester before departure
Before travelling home, why not explore the historic city of Chester which has the most complete city walls and largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain. There is a 1,000 year old cathedral and 700 year old unique shopping rows to discover. After, depart at leisure.
