Based in the capital of Wales, this holiday captures the essence of Welsh culture and spectacular scenery.  Cardiff itself is rich in ancient history and offers a range of things to do, quality shopping and many interesting buildings and the bay offers entertainment for everyone.

 

With some fantastic attractions included and one of the most interesting new attractions in years, this is a great holiday to discover the highlights of South Wales.

The deposit required at the time of booking for all holidays is £30 per person, full payment is required 28 days prior to departure.

Gardens

A worthwhile day to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales. Nestled in the Tywi Valley, the garden combines themed displays, rolling parkland and secluded woodland. The award winning Great Glasshouse is home to a profusion of rare, fragrant, exotic and even spooky plants. Continue to Carmarthen, one of Wales' oldest towns, before returning to the hotel.

Royal Mint

Entry is included to The Royal Mint Visitor Centre, with an escorted tour of the production process. Enjoy a self-guided tour of static and interactive exhibits, bringing to life the Mint's heritage. In the afternoon, enjoy an introductory tour in the attractive city centre of Cardiff, as well as the modernised Cardiff Bay.

Big Pit/Penderyn

Travel to the foothills of the Brecon Beacons National Park and a morning visit to Big Pit Mining Museum to learn about the region's heritage. You may like to partake in the underground tour of the mine (any fee not included) or there is a virtual tour above ground, providing a moving and entertaining illustration of the lives of miners at work and home. Then to Penderyn Visitor Centre to learn about whisky making in Wales and general Welsh history in the exhibition centre. Return to Cardiff for an opportunity to see the excellent Cardiff Arms Park Choir rehearsing classic Welsh anthems (subject to availability) just across the road, prior to a slightly later dinner.

Angel Hotel, Cardiff

 

A beautiful 4 star Victorian landmark, the Angel occupies a fantastic location near the castle in the city centre, yet surrounded by the garden of Bute Park and Victorian arcades.  Guests are greeted by a grand sweeping staircase and traditional public areas.
