Trip Summary
3 nights in Swansea

Swansea is the second-largest city in Wales and one of the two principal cities of the historic county of Glamorgan. The city sits on Swansea Bay and the western bank of the River Tawe. The maritime district is home to Swansea Museum, the oldest museum in Wales, as well as the National Waterfront Museum and the museum dedicated to the life of celebrated Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. In the vicinity there are many parks and nature reserves, and the area in and around Swansea is considered one of the most ecologically diverse and beautiful regions of the United Kingdom. The city is situated on the far eastern portion of the Gower Peninsula, the first area of the UK to be named an `Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty`. Swansea is a popular beach and surfing destination, and is also a hub for nightlife, as is the small seaside community of Mumbles that sits southwest of town.

Visit Swansea Bay, National Waterfront Museum, Mumbles Pier, Oystermouth Castle, Clyne Gardens, Swansea Marina, Swansea Museum, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea Castle, Dylan Thomas Birthplace, and so much more!



2 nights in Pembroke Coast

Pembroke Coast serves as an excellent base from which to explore the scenic southwest coast of Wales.Wales boasts some of the most spectacular coastlines in all of Britain, especially around the rugged Pembrokeshire Peninsula. Jutting out into the Irish Sea, the south westerly tip of Wales is an area just begging to be explored, whether on foot, by bike, or by car. It's also a great place from which to discover the rest of West Wales, including lovely Carmarthenshire.

Visit Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Whitesands Bay, Oakwood Theme Park, St Davids Cathedral, Preseli Hills, Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo and much more.



2 nights in Newport

Newport is surrounded by beautiful landscapes including the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the undulating Vale of Usk, famous for its salmon fishing, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Forest of Dean – all less than an hour’s drive from Newport. Famous for its docks, the Roman remains in nearby Caerleon and its association with the 19th-century Chartist movement, Newport is full of cultural surprises and is certainly a Welsh city on the rise.



2 nights in Cardiff

Cardiff is the capital of Wales. It is also its most populous city and the epicenter of political, economical, social, and cultural life in Wales. With over 20 million visitors arriving each year, it is easily Wales`s most-visited tourist destination. In the early 19th century, the small town of Cardiff experienced a meteoric rise as one of the principal ports in the British Empire, and the area around the port is now a noteworthy tourist area which is home to such buildings as the Welsh National Assembly, the Pierhead Building, and the Millennium Centre. Other noteworthy sights include the BBC Drama Centre in the city center, where such TV shows as the dramas Casualty and the Welsh-language Pobol y Cwm are recorded; and the city`s two grand cathedrals: Cardiff Cathedral (Roman Catholic) and Llandaff Cathedral (Anglican), the latter dating from the 12th century. Cardiff Castle was built on the site of a 3rd-century Roman fort; the castle we see today also dates from the 12th century.

Visit Cardiff Castle, Cardiff Bay, St Fagans National Museum of History, National Museum Cardiff, Caerphilly Castle, Wales Millennium Centre, Mermaid Quay, Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff Cathedral, Pierhead Building, and so much more!
