Castles and Gardens of South Wales
Mon 25 April 2022
A visit to South Wales where we discover the Castles and Gardens of the area. With a long and fascinating history to discover each Castle has a different story to tell. The gardens we will visit offer the visitor many aspects of gardening life from enclosed gardens to formal and regal affairs. This coupled with visits to the Capital and smaller towns gives us truly memorable experience.
A morning departure sees us make a coffee stop before we head into Worcester for lunch and with time to explore. Our journey continues via The Heads of the Valleys road to Brigend and our hotel where dinner is served.
We make our way across to St Donants Castle and Gardens a restored medieval fortress set high on a hill where we have plenty of time to explore before we head to Dyffrn Gardens which feature outdoor rooms, an arboretum and wild areas again we have plenty of time to explore. We return to the hotel for dinner.
Today we head to the Capital Cardiff where we have an included visit to the Castle and after free time in the City to take lunch. Later we visit To Caerphilly Castle a Moated, 13th-century fortress with imposing gatehouse, fortified dam and a tower bombed by Cromwell. We return to the hotel for dinner.
We head to the National Botanical Gardens of Wales where we see Formal gardens, lakes and woodland surrounding a huge tropical glasshouse designed by Norman Foster. In the afternoon we make a short visit to Tenby for some free time before we head to the hotel for dinner.
We begin our journey home with a coffee stop in Monmouth and then a late lunch in Lichfield. We arrive home early evening
The Best Western Heronston Hotel & Spa is a fantastic place to stay near Swansea. The hotel is delightfully located in a semi-rural area, but only half a mile from Bridgend town centre.
