Day 1 We travel across to Gloucester in time for lunch. We continue to our hotel in Carmarthen, where there will be tea, coffee and Welsh cake on arrival.

Day 2 Today we visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales, which was created within a beautiful Regency park, with over 100,000 plants and the Great Glasshouse as its remarkable centrepiece – making it perfect for all weathers. Conservation is an important element of the gardens and it is home to the Welsh Rare Plants Project. We have included entry to The British Bird of Prey Centre. Take a walk around the aviaries, enjoy a conservation talk by one of the falconers or watch one of the flying displays (weather dependant. Approx. £4 per person). The afternoon is free in Carmarthen.

Day 3 We visit the pretty resort of Tenby this morning and this afternoon we travel further west to Pembroke. Here we have a guided tour of the castle, once the magnificent home of the Earls of Pembroke, followed by tea and scones.

Day 4 This morning we visit the Gower Peninsula, designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, before continuing to Mumbles. Our afternoon is spent at Aberglasney Gardens, a remarkable site recovered from years of neglect and restored to its former glory.

Day 5 Leaving our hotel after breakfast, we travel to Cardiff for free time over the lunchtime period. We then cross the Severn Bridge and continue to the local area.

Ivy Bush Royal Hotel
