Explore the vibrant and historic city of Cardiff and the glorious scenery of the Gower Peninsula.
Day 1 Leaving the local area with our door to door service, we travel via Malmesbury and then continue across the Severn Estuary to our hotel.
Day 2 This morning we are joined by a local guide for a short driven tour around the city. Then at Cardiff Castle we discover over 2000 years of history, from Roman fort to Norman stronghold to Victorian Gothic fairytale palace! Most of the castle is accessible with some steps, but some areas will not be suitable for the less mobile. The rest of the day is free in Cardiff.
Day 3 A full day excursion to the stunning Gower Peninsula including the Mumbles and the Gower Heritage Centre. Here we meet our local guide and continue through this area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ to Rhossili for views of Worms Head. After a cream tea we head back to Cardiff.
Day 4 Take the morning to relax and explore Cardiff. This afternoon we visit St Fagan’s Open Air Museum, where more than 50 buildings are frozen in time.
Day 5 Leaving our hotel after a leisurely breakfast, we cross into England and on to Lacock for lunch. Dating back to the 13th Century, the village is owned and managed by the National Trust and is often used as a location for film and TV. We arrive home late afternoon
