ItineraryItineraryDay 1 Morning departure for the journey into South Wales and to Carmarthen for a four night stay.
Day 2 Today you will travel west to the popular walled seaside resort of Tenby. With the old town walls, interesting little side streets and alleyways to explore including the Five Arches barbican gatehouse, Tenby Museum and Art Gallery and not forgetting the superb beaches. Tenby is South West Wales’ main holiday resort. Time for lunch before travelling to Picton Castle and Gardens. Regarded as Pembrokeshire’s finest stately home and gardens, situated close to the estuary of the Cleddau River, and not far from Haverfordwest. There are over 40 acres of some of the most beautiful gardens and grounds to discover.
Day 3 A free day to explore Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales and known for its legendary connections to Merlin and its Roman heritage. Visit the free museum, packed with many treasures and artefacts.
Day 4 An excursion takes you to St Bride’s Bay, Newgale Sands and the magical place of St. David’s, birthplace of the patron saint of Wales. St David’s has a beautiful cathedral, the smallest in Great Britain and well worth a visit. From here you will head around the Preseli Mountains en-route to Carmarthen and the hotel.
Day 5 After breakfast, you will depart the hotel for the journey to North Wales. You will stop en route for lunch and arrive in Mold late afternoon for a three night stay.
Day 6 Today you will have an early start and head to Llanberis, in the shadow of Mount Snowdon for some free time before heading for the bridge over the Menai Straits and on to Beaumaris, a delightful village on the shore of the Isle of Anglesey. Time for lunch before joining your afternoon boat trip to Puffin Island, a Special Protection Area where you may see a variety of seabirds, wildlife, seal colonies and perhaps sight dolphins and porpoises in the surf.
Day 7 The excursion today takes you through some lovely Welsh scenery, including the spectacular Horseshoe Pass, to the Dee Valley where you will join the Rheilfford Llangollen Railway for a journey on a nostalgic train from Carrogg to Llangollen followed by a ride on the ‘Stream in the Sky’ – the Llangollen Canal, gliding gently along over the country’s biggest navigable viaduct.
Day 8 After breakfast, depart the hotel and commence the homeward journey.
