The wonderful landscapes of South Wales are home to a wealth of historic places and lush, green spaces, some in the ownership of the National Trust. We enjoy the incredible natural scenery as we explore the Brecon Beacons & Cardiff Bay. We also visit the Royal Mint Experience where we go behind the scenes and follow the journey of a coin, from blank to bank.
Day 1: Following your home collection we make our way south west to the outskirts of Chepstow and our hotel for our 4 night stay on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.
Day 2: We head into the Wye valley stopping at the ruins of Tintern Abbey en-route to Monmouth, famous for its 13thcentury Monnow Bridge. This afternoon we enjoy a boat a cruise on the River Wye. We stop in Chepstow for some free time in this ancient walled border town and ancient port before our return to our hotel.
