If you are driving to Cardiff, payable parking is available nearby.
A Greatdays representative will meet you in the hotel and assist with check in.
There will be a short drinks reception in the hotel prior to dinner, where you can get to know your fellow travellers. Dinner will be served in the hotel, and the rest of the evening is at your leisure.


22nd June 2022

After breakfast in the hotel, meet with your local guide for a morning coach tour of Cardiff city centre and Cardiff Bay, one of Europe’s biggest waterfront
developments. We’ve arranged a behind-the-scenes guided walking tour at the magnificent Wales Millennium Centre. There will be free time to enjoy lunch, and
in the afternoon we visit St Fagans National History Museum, Wales’ most popular heritage attraction. This open-air museum chronicles the historical lifestyle,
culture, and architecture of the Welsh people. More than 40 original buildings from different historical periods have been re-erected in the 100-acre parkland.
Return to the hotel late afternoon, and relax before dinner.


23rd June 2022

After breakfast, join your coach and guide, before we head to the new Royal Mint Experience, to see how more than two billion coins from the UK and across the world are produced each year. The visit includes a guided factory tour and free time in the interactive exhibition. A short drive away is Caerphilly. We visit the imposing 13th century medieval castle, which has a tower which leans more than Pisa!
You will return to your hotel for dinner


24th June 2022

After breakfast, and for those without their own car, join your coach and head North towards Llandudno. The scenic coach journey will take us through
Monmouth, Ross on Wye and Hereford, arriving at Ludlow at lunchtime. Here there will be a stop to explore this thriving Medieval Town with its hill of
Georgian houses ascending from the River Teme, to the great tower of the cross shaped church, rising behind a classic market building. After our break, we will
continue to Llandudno, where the coach will drop you at your hotel.
