TASTES OF SOUTH WALES & THE ROYAL MINT

New Tour

There are some great places to visit in South Wales and this tour literally gives us a ‘taste’ of many local crafts and attractions in a variety of ways. The highlight for many will be our visit to the new Royal Mint visitor center.

The three star Best Western Aberavon Beach Hotel is ideally situated on the Aberavon seafront with two miles of flat promenade to enjoy, as well as the wide sandy beach and views across Swansea Bay. Rooms have very good facilities and there is an indoor pool and lift for guests use. 

Itinerary

Sunday Leaving Cornwall in the morning we travel to South Wales. We enjoy a lunch break in the petite city of Wells before heading across the Severn Bridge and on to our hotel.

Monday We begin with a return journey on the Gwilli Steam Railway, a living reminder of the GWR branchline set in the Carmarthen hills. Later we visit Aberglasney House and Gardens where we have a private tour of the recently restored gardens.

Tuesday Today we tickle the tastebuds! Starting with Rhymney Brewery and Blaenafon Cheddar Company where we learn the art of making speciality cheese and unique beers. We have tours and tasting before a two course lunch. In the afternoon we continue the theme with a guided tour of Penderyn Distillery, one of the smallest in the world.

Wednesday The Royal Mint has 1000 years of history and craftsmanship and today we go behind the scenes and have a guided tour to discover the people and stories behind the journey of a coin. Later we have free time in the city of Cardiff.  

Thursday After breakfast we will leave our hotel and make our way to Bristol. There is time to have an early lunch before our return to Cornwall.
