Itinerary

Day 1Bristol - St Davids - Tenby

  • Venture to the smallest city in Britain, St Davids
  • Explore the beauty of the south of Wales and the Pembrokeshire Coast

It’s time to explore the beauty and history of south Wales.

Leaving Bristol, your first main destination is St Davids, known as the smallest city in Britain. Despite its tiny stature, St Davids has claimed city status thanks to the 12th century cathedral found in the heart of the town. The cathedral is definitely worth a visit, not just for its beauty, but you can learn all about the history of the city inside.

In the afternoon, your driver-guide will take you on a beautiful drive along the Pembrokeshire Coast in the south of Wales, choosing the best places to stop depending on what might interest the group. Hills, estuaries, valleys, and woodlands, this stunning region really has it all.

You arrive in Tenby in the early evening and this is your destination for the night. Settlement in Tenby town dates back to the 9th century, so no surprise there’s plenty to see here.

Day 2Tenby - Laugharne - Carreg Cennen Castle - Abergavenny

  • Wander the picturesque town of Tenby
  • Retrace Welsh poet Dylan Thomas’ steps in Laugharne
  • Marvel at Carreg Cennen Castle

You have the morning to explore Tenby and we’d highly recommend taking advantage. This town has some fascinating history and amazing things to see, including what’s left of Tenby Castle and the medieval town walls.

Poetry lovers will enjoy the stop at the lovely town of Laugharne. Welsh poet Dylan Thomas lived in his boathouse here from 1949 until his death in 1953. The boathouse is open to the public, or perhaps you’ll use your time for a quick refreshment since there are plenty of pubs to choose from.

In the afternoon you visit Carreg Cennen Castle. This incredible stronghold sits high on a rocky outcrop overlooking the River Cennen, so get your camera ready. There’s time here to explore the ruins and even grab a quick bite for lunch.

We then treat you to a drive through the scenic Bannau Brycheiniog National Park mountain range. A perfect way to end the day before you arrive in Abergavenny for the evening. (B)

Day 3Abergavenny - Hay-on-Wye - Ross-on-Wye - Tintern Abbey - Chepstow - Bristol

  • Lose yourself in the many bookstores of Hay-on-Wye
  • Gaze upon the beauty of the Wye Valley

Bookworms get ready. Your first stop of the day is in Hay-on-Wye, known as the First Booktown in the World. This town has become famous for its secondhand and antiquarian bookshops, so your free time here could result in a small reading collection for your travels.

You then travel onwards to Ross-on-Wye, the UK’s best loved market town. Here you have some time to wander and grab some lunch.

Back on the bus, you head off through the Wye Valley. This scenic route is considered the birthplace of British tourism and the birthplace of the industrial revolution. Your journey takes you to your next stop: Tintern Abbey. Sitting on the banks of River Wye, there’s some fascinating history behind this now-roofless national icon which was founded in 1131.

Your last stop of the tour is in Chepstow where you can marvel at the power of Chepstow’s Norman castle. You arrive back in Bristol in the early evening. (B)
