Things To See & Do

Some of the UK’s best driving routes cut through Wales; twist your way along the Gospel and Black Mountain passes in the Brecon Beacons, or through the slate-covered mountains of Snowdonia National Park. Just ask us for a tailor-made proposal.

Railway lovers will find much to delight here; steam through atmospheric Welsh landscapes, amidst evocative place-names like Pont Croesor, Beddgelert and Rhyd Ddu, perhaps while enjoying lunch and a tipple in classic carriage comfort.

Discover the world-class scenery of the Gower, whose hidden beaches and coves are framed by sweeping dunes and rocky coastline, and where the fortunate can enjoy a superb Welsh sunset sinking behind serpent-shaped Worm’s Head.

Take a bracing clifftop walk by Whitesands in Pembrokeshire, inside the UK’s only coastal National Park, on your way back to St David’s, where, despite a population of just 1800, you’ll find some of the best restaurants in Wales. Here you’ll also find the departure point for exciting boat trips; we particularly love to head out towards Ramsey Island, home to puffins, skuas and shearwaters at varying times during the season. The view back towards shore from St Bride’s Bay is unforgettable.
