Suggested itinerary by coach

Day 1

Travel to the Swansea area

Use the impressive Severn Crossing and the M4, or perhaps take a more leisurely journey along the picturesque Heads of the Valleys road.

Day 2

Swansea, Mumbles and The Gower Peninsula

Enjoy the morning exploring Swansea’s bustling city centre with its famous traditional market. Browse among 100 stalls offering everything from fresh local produce to traditional Welsh gifts, or take away a bag of hot Welsh cakes, served fresh from the griddle. Then walk through to Swansea’s maritime quarter where the free-to-enter National Waterfront Museum tells the human story of Welsh industry and innovation now, and over the past 300 years. At the end of the morning the coach will take you along to the picturesque, Victorian seaside resort of Mumbles, now a cosy and cosmopolitan destination. After free time to explore the area, we head for the Gower Heritage Centre for an afternoon discovering The Gower peninsula, Britain’s first designated ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty’. After time at the Heritage Centre the coach will take you (with an option for a tour guide) around the peninsular, revealing ancient sites, monuments and castles.

Day 3

Tenby and the National Botanic Garden of Wales

We head west into Pembrokeshire to the pretty seaside resort and fishing port of Tenby. There’s time to explore the cobbled streets and perhaps enjoy some lunch overlooking the picturesque harbour. In the afternoon we visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Opened in 2000, the Garden is a fascinating blend of the modern and historic. At its heart is the Great Glasshouse, the world’s largest single-span glasshouse, a remarkable tilted glass dome designed by world-famous architects Norman Foster and Partners. Inside, a Mediterranean landscape is dominated by a six-metre deep ravine and rock terraces and sheer faces are cut by streams and waterfalls.
