Highlights

 

Swansea   |   Mumbles   |   Gower Heritage Centre   |   Tenby   |   National Botanic Garden of Wales

 

Day One

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your coach and travel to South Wales with comfort stops enroute, arriving at your hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

Enjoy the morning exploring Swansea’s bustling city centre with its famous traditional market, offering everything from fresh local product to traditional Welsh gifts, or take away a bag of hot Welsh cakes, served fresh from the griddle.  Walk through Swansea’s maritime quarter where the free-to-enter- National Waterfront Museum tells the human story of Welsh industry over the past 300 years.

At the end of the morning your coach will take you along to the picturesque Victorian seaside resort of Mumbles, now a cosy and cosmopolitan destination.  After free time to explore the area, we head for the Gower Heritage Centre for an afternoon discovering The Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first designation ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty’.  After time at the Heritage Centre your coach will take you around the peninsular, revealing ancient sites, monuments and castles.

 

Day Three

Today we head west into Pembrokeshire to the pretty seaside resort and fishing port of Tenby, there is time to explore the cobbled streets and perhaps enjoy some lunch overlooking the picturesque harbour.  In the afternoon we visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales, opened in 2000, the garden is a fascinating blend of the modern and historic.  At its heart is the Great Glasshouse, the worlds largest single-span glasshouse, a remarkable tilted glass dome designed by world-famous architects Norman Foster and Partners.  Inside, a Mediterranean landscape is dominated by a six-metre deep ravine and rock terraces and sheer faces are cut by streams and waterfalls.

This morning after breakfast we begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute, after an enjoyable break in South Wales.
