Your Itinerary:

Day 1: Pick up from London at 8.00am on Friday morning bound for Cardiff, once in the Welsh capital we'll head out of the city for a short walk up the Garth, the highest point in the Cardiff area. From the summit there are panoramic views of the city, the South Wales coastline, England and the Severn Bridge, the Brecon Beacons National Park (we will visit here on Day 4) and the Rhondda Valleys.

From here we will visit Castell Coch, a fully restored 19th century fantasy castle, before heading down the M4 (Wales' only motorway) to the Neath Valley where we will lunch at the huge Neath Abbey, an 11th Century monastery.

Next; Mumbles, a cosmopolitan suburb of Swansea with magnificent sea views for ice cream or a beer. Then we will head for the Gower, Britain 's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to check-out the stunning coastline, King Arthur's Stone and the best surf beach in Wales. The onto our pre-arranged accommodation.

Day 2: After a hearty welsh breakfast we will be on the road by 9am heading for Tenby, the busiest castle enclosed town in the area. After time for exploring we will head onto Bosherston for magnificent views of the rugged, untouched coastline of Pembrokshire, UK's only coastal National Park and discover a 6th century hermit church!! Lunch will be served at this stunning location. For the hearty its a sea swim at Barafundle Bay (one of the best beaches in Europe according to the Rough Guide).

Next St Davids, UK's smallest city. The cathedral and resting point for Wales ' patron saint, St David, is nestled in a corner of the village and has been a pilgrimage for hundreds of years. We will then visit The Preseli mountains, home to a bronze-age burial site and the bluestone of Stonehenge. (How did the bluestone get from west Wales to Stonehenge?).

The small and picturesque coast towns of Aberaeron and Aberystwyth are the last stops where we will sample the local produce (honey ice-cream) and the best fish and chips in Wales!

Day 3: We head back through the Devils Bridge and the Black Mountains and onto the town of Brecon, at the foot of the uplands of the Brecon Beacons, Wales' 3rd National Park. The lush green beauty of the Beacons contrasts to the ruggedness of Snowdonia perfectly.

An off-piste walk with the mountain to ourselves that will provide the perfect for a picnic lunch. From being on top of the world we later don our helmets complete with miners lamp (will be provided) and descend ½ mile underground into Big Pit to see the workings of real coal mine. Before returning to Cardiff we'll stop at Aberfan Memorial to pay respect to UK 's biggest man-made tragedy of recent times.

Return to London by 8.30pm on Sunday evening.
