Day 1

We depart the local area and make a stop for lunch before arriving at The Metropole Hotel & Spa mid-afternoon, ready to settle in and get acquainted with the facilities on site.


Day 2

Today we escape to the Elan Valley and its visitor centre, a world away from normal life, for a guided coach tour of this beautiful and unspoilt area made even more compelling by the dams and reservoirs, which together create a wonderful living landscape. Home to the National Cycle Collection, we have time in the afternoon to explore Llandrindod Wells, whose towers and ornate Ironwork reflect its heyday as a Victorian spa town.


Day 3

Today we travel to the Credigion Heritage Coast and the seaside resort of Aberystwyth, which is home to beaches, a lovely promenade, a funicular railway, castle ruins, and the National Library of Wales. This afternoon we enjoy an unforgettable and nostalgic journey through some wonderful scenery on the Vale of Rheidol narrow gauge steam railway.


Day 4

Experience the beautiful and diverse scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, including Brecon, with its medieval cathedral and narrow streets full of craft and antique shops. We enjoy a relaxing cruise through a lock and over an aqueduct on the historical Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, a fantastic feat of engineering which was built before roads and railways.


Day 5

We depart the hotel after a leisurely breakfast and return home with a lunch stop on route, arriving back late afternoon.
