Your Itinerary

Day 1 - After boarding your holiday coach, head to the South Wales coast with a stop en-route in the historic walled border town of Chepstow which sits on the Welsh side of the River Wye. Arrive in South Wales for your 3 night stay DBB

Day 2 - 3 At leisure in South Wales with two included excursions 

Mumbles & Gower Peninsula
Start the day on the other side of Swansea Bay in Mumbles, the 'Gateway to Gower' and much-loved seaside retreat of Swansea dwellers. Full of character with its lighthouse and famous Victorian pier, a visit to Mumbles is a charmingly old-fashioned delight - plenty of independent boutiques and quirky galleries too. Then head off to the Gower Heritage Centre, a rural life museum with a 12th century water powered mill, cider press and artisan craft shops. A local guide will take you on an exploration of the peninsula, a world of its own, pointing into the Bristol Channel. The region is fringed with sweeping yellow bays and precipitous cliffs whilst bracken heaths dot the interior where tiny villages, castle ruins and curious churches can be found. Enjoy a Welsh cream tea before returning to the hotel. 

Brecon Beacons & Mountain Railway
All aboard the Brecon Mountain Railway which runs from Pant, 3 miles north of Merthyr Tydfil, to Torpantau following part of the route of the original Brecon & Merthyr Railway which closed in 1964. The journey takes you through Pontsticill and along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservior before climbing to Torpantau high in the Brecon Beacons (Bannau Brycheiniog). The return trip lasts about 90 minutes with a stop by Pontsticill station and Reservoir and time to visit the locomotive workshop at Pant station. Then take a scenic drive through the Brecon Beacons National Park which encompasses some of the finest and most varied scenery in Southern Wales. Hills of grass and rock tumble and climb around river valleys that lie between sandstone and limestone uplands, peppered with lakes and villages. Make a stop in Brecon, the picturesque market town in the Usk Valley famed for its Georgian architecture

Day 4 - After breakfast head homewards with plenty of Welsh memories. Arrive in your hometowns early evening.
