ITINERARY

Swansea is an appealing blend of traditional and modern, known as the city by the sea. The old dock has been transformed into a marina, surrounded by stylish waterfront buildings.  Your guide will give a brief overview of the marina before visiting the National Waterfront Museum, tracing the industry and innovations over the past 300 years. 

From Swansea enjoy views of  Swansea Bay, Mumbles Village, lighthouse and pier, and Bracelet Bay before entering the Gower Peninsula. The 19-mile peninsula has a unique combination of natural beauty shown in its rugged cliffs, golden sands and coves.

At Langland Bay a leisurely coastal walk to Caswell Bay, with ample time to enjoy the scenery, or if you prefer, relax at Langland and rejoin your guide and driver and travel onboard the mini-coach to  Caswell Bay to join the rest of the group.  

Rhossili Bay, voted by TripAdvisor the Best Bay in the UK and 9th Best in the World. The delightful coastal village has not changed since the Gower became the first 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' in the UK. The beach has a long  expanse of golden sands, and the waters used by surfers, paddle boarders and swimmers all year round.  The coastal path is easy to access and leads to Worm's Head, a dramatic serpent shape stone causeway. To walk along the coastal path allow around 40 minutes, and to visit the highest view point in the Gower, take a walk up to Rhossili Downs, 190 metres above sea level for excellent views. Your guide will point out all the eating establishments, or if you want to maximise your time at Rhossili why not bring a packed lunch.

Mid afternoon explore the North region of the Peninsular,  one of Wales's most alluring landscapes.  The journey travels through the village of Reynoldston to Cefn Bryn, vast open moorland where wild ponies, cattle and sheep roam without the restriction of fences.  Take a short walk is  Maen Ceti, better known as Arthur's Stone, a tomb dating back to approximately 2500B.C. spectacularly sited on a false crest overlooking the Llwcher Estuary.  Wonderful photo opportunities at this location.

 

The return journey travels the lower coastal road to arrive at Cardff  at 17:30 approx.
