South Wales & the Wye Valley

Suggested Itinerary

Day 1 – Lacock Village

Board our private executive coach at your preferred pick up points – visit en route a suitable National Trust property such as the 13th century Lacock Village in Wiltshire where we have time for lunch – check in at the 4* St Pierre Marriott Hotel and Country Club on the outskirts of Chepstow.

Day 2 – St Fagans National History Museum & Tredegar House

St Fagans National History Museum, set in 100 acres of parkland, gives an insight into how the people of Wales have lived, worked and spent their leisure time over the last five hundred years – set in a beautiful 90 acre park, the National Trust’s Tredegar House near Newport is one of the best examples of a 17th century Charles II mansion in Britain, the earliest surviving part of which dates back to the early 1500’s.

Day 3 – Wye Valley, Tintern Abbey & Berkeley Castle

Scenic drive through the Wye Valley begins with a visit to the remains of Tintern Abbey, the best preserved abbey in Wales and among Britain’s most beautiful historic sites – beautiful and historic Berkeley Castle, begun in 1117, is still the home of the famous family who gave their name to numerous locations all over the world, notably Berkeley Square in London, Berkeley Hundred in Virginia and Berkeley University in California.

Day 4 – Cardiff & Royal Mint Visitor Centre

Guided tour of Cardiff takes in the Senedd, the National Assembly Building, and the Norwegian Sailor’s Church, established in 1868 to provide religious and social care to thousands of Norwegian sailors that were employed in the Norwegian merchant fleet and now an Arts Centre – a guided tour of the Royal Mint Visitor Centre reveals how blank pieces of metal are made before being struck to become coins and from a viewing area we see the striking hall where thousands of coins are produced 24 hours a day.

Day 5 – SS Great Britain

Guided tour of the beautifully recreated First Class Dining Saloon, steerage quarters and Engine Room of Brunel’s SS Great Britain, the world’s first great ocean liner.
