Come with us on this delightful tour to Pembrokeshire. We will stay in beautiful Tenby and have a free time here to enjoy the town and its beautiful beaches and attractions. The excursions on this tour include a half day in St Davids and elevenses on the stunning Gwili Railway.
Your hotel is the Belgrave, set along the Promenade and with unencumbered views of seafront and Caldey Island. It is the ideal location for exploring more of beautiful Tenby. A picture-perfect seaside town, Tenby is truly a beautiful place to visit whatever the time of year. Stroll the narrow, cobbled streets, enjoy the many cafes, restaurants and bars, take a walk onto the harbour or just enjoy the beautiful beach.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Located on the Esplanade in Tenby, the Belgrave is a historic hotel and a great base from which to explore Tenby and area. The hotel offers good food and a warm welcome along with fabulous views of South Beach and Caldey Island. All rooms are comfortably furnished and come with all the usual amenities. The hotel also has a lift.
After joining the coach at one of our local pick-up points, we head west to Tenby and our hotel. Check-in, unpack and then maybe take a stroll along the promenade before your first delicious dinner.
Enjoy a tasty traditional Welsh breakfast this morning and enjoy Tenby on your own. Don't miss a half day excursion to Wales’ smallest city, St Davids. Return to the hotel to enjoy a delicious dinner and some great entertainment.
After a final hearty breakfast, it is sadly time to make our way home but we have a last treat in store for you. Having checked out, we head for the scenic Gwili Railway for a memorable ride on this heritage steam railway. Afterwards, re-join your coach and now it is time to head back home...
St Davids (half day)
St Davids is named after the patron saint of Wales, Saint David. St Davids is the smallest city in Britain with a population of just over 1,600. City status was awarded in 1995 although the roots of St Davids go back to the 5th century when St David himself lived here. St Davids was designated as a conservation area by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in 1972. The magnificent cathedral at St Davids dates back to the 12th century, although several older cathedrals were built before that on the same site. Unfortunately, St Davids was prone to Viking attacks, being so close to the sea. The Vikings destroyed several of the older structures. Modern-day St Davids is a quaint and character-full place much loved by everyone who knows it.
Welsh Elevenses on the Gwili Railway
Gwili Railway is one of the UK's most picturesque preserved lines, set in beautiful countryside with abundant wildlife, the line follows the River Gwili on a steady uphill journey through farmland and wooded hillsides. Beyond the locomotives, history and scenery, the railway's appeal lies in the friendliness and enthusiasm of the volunteers who maintain the railway and operate the services. They're justly proud of the part they play in recreating the golden age of steam and their love of the railway is infectious -they'll be happy to regale you with information and stories about Gwili and its historic locomotives. A fascinating break in our journey home and made even better by the inclusion of some tasty elevenses to help get you through the day...
