Tredegar House and Castell Coch
A visit to 17th century Tredegar House in Newport, one of the architectural wonders of Wales. Situated in 90 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland, it has been home to the Morgan family for over 500 years. Our visit takes in the beautiful state rooms and life ‘below stairs’. Castell Coch, where the ‘eccentric genius’ William Burges was given free rein to create a rural retreat to complement the opulence of Cardiff Castle. He didn’t hold back, dazzling ceilings, over-the-top furnishings and furniture are in abundance.
The Brecons & The Royal Mint
Experience the beauty of Wales as we journey through the National Park’s beautiful scenery. We call at the Brecon Beacons visitor Centre before joining the Brecon Mountain railway for a journey through the park you will never forget! This afternoon we visit the new Royal Mint visitors centre where we gain unprecedented access to The Royal Mint, and discover the people and events behind the coins in your pocket, and hear some surprising stories from our history.
