Itinerary

Full day tour

You begin this tour with a visit to Britain’s most well-preserved Roman town, Caerleon “Fort of the Legion”. Explore the amphitheatre where gladiators fought to their death and their barracks for the day to day life of a Roman legionary.

Another Roman place is on our route at Caerwent, driving through this village to see a once thriving market town; more evidence of invader occupation 1900 years ago.

Next you cross the majestic Usk and Wye rivers to reach the spectacular monastic ruin at Tintern Abbey, trailing in the footsteps of the Cistercian Monks with tales of dedication and treachery.

Lunch is taken at your leisure at the nearby Abbey Mill Craft Centre. Maybe a walk along the banks of the River Wye before or after lunch.

We continue onto Raglan Castle described as the finest late-medieval fortress in Britain – a majestic Welsh castle – with wonderful views of the Monmouthshire countryside along the way.
