Carmarthen Market Day & National Botanic Garden of Wales
Discover legendary Carmarthen on the banks of the River Tywi, the oldest town in Wales, proud of its Roman origins as well as its links with the Arthurian legends of Merlin. The wizard is said by some to have been born here. The town's castle ruins have a colourful history of being besieged by the English, and subsequently destroyed and rebuilt in 1215. Roman gold and Egyptian artefacts. The popular outdoor market takes place on a Wednesday with the modern indoor market open daily.
Continue to the National Botanic Garden of Wales in Llanarthne - the most visited garden in Wales and voted No 1 Garden to visit in Wales by BBC Gardeners' World. The gardens offer a beautiful mix of modern and historic gardens and woodland trails set in the idyllic Carmarthenshire countryside. Enjoy the different Mediterranean climate zones to view rare and endangered plants in the garden's centrepiece, the Norman Foster–designed Great Glasshouse, a spectacular glass dome sunken into the earth.
Cardigan, Cardigan Bay & Pembroke
Cardigan is an essential stop on Cardigan Bay with its 19th century character and charm and its narrow streets, traditional shops and inns, many with their original Georgian and Victorian fronts. Round the day off in Pembroke, a charming walled town dating back over 900 years with its famous castle, one of the most complete Norman castles in the UK (entrance not included - approx. £8.50 in 2022). The birthplace of Henry VII, founder of the Tudor dynasty, Pembroke is a textbook medieval fortified town with a central main street heading east from the castle gates
St David's & Picton Castle (6 & 7 Days Only)
Picton Castle & Gardens have been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for five years running (entrance included). The Secret Owl Garden is home to the largest collection of owls in Wales. Hidden away are specially designed aviaries for 25 different species of owls. St David's is Britain's very attractive, smallest city with its narrow streets filled with cafes, restaurants and art galleries - but only one pub! St David's Cathedral, nestles hidden in a grassy hollow and the 13th century Tower Gate and the Celtic Old Cross are also well worth a look. Its city status was bestowed in the 16th century when a town with a cathedral was considered a city by the English Crown. The policy was abolished in the 1800s, but Queen Elizabeth II granted city status once again in 1994 in recognition of its rich history and heritage.
