Excursions Included

· We travel to Caerleon to see the fascinating National Roman Legion Museum and Roman Baths. Discover why Wales was a popular posting for the Roman army and see examples of graffiti of its day.  Following this visit we continue to the historic market town of Abergavenny where we have free time.  In the afternoon we visit Big Pit, once one of Wales’ largest collieries, which closed in 1980. A former miner will lead you through the underground caverns to reveal the secrets and stories of life at the coal face.

· We enjoy a return ride on the steam-hauled narrow gauge Brecon Mountain Railway into the Brecon Beacons National Park.  Following our train ride we make our way to Merthyr Tydfil giving us time to obtain some lunch (not included).  From here we make our way to Penderyn Whisky Distillery Visitor Centre for our private tour and tutored tasting.

· We make our way to Coleford, the administrative centre of the Forest of Dean.  The centre of the town has been designated a Conservation Area.  We spend some free time here before making our way back through the Forest of Dean via Tintern Abbey (not included in the cost) and on to Chepstow, a medieval town which boasts an impressive castle dating from the11th century.
