Discovering ancient sites, exploring medieval castles and seeing the source of the Stonehenge bluestones are just a few of the things you can do on these 3 day historic tours of Wales. Comfy accommodation and a knowledgeable, qualified guide are all part of the package too.
You needn’t jet off to Athens for a holiday loaded with history and ancient sites – there’s plenty to see on these shores too. Medieval castles, ancient burial sites and underground caves can all be seen much closer to home - in Wales. And with some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery – like the Brecon Beacons – forming the backdrop, the location’s rather pleasing on the eye too. A qualified guide will help you discover the best historical sights west Wales has to offer, and comfy hotel or guesthouse accommodation will make sure you’ve got a cosy base to relax in for your two overnight stays.
Three days might not seem like much, but with the expertise of qualified guides, you’ll soon be immersed in all things ancient. Perched on a limestone crag on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, Carreg Cenan castle makes for an impressive starting point on day one. Then there’s the likes of Garn Fawr – a prehistoric hill-top fort where views stretch out across the Irish Sea to the Wicklow mountains. And you’ll be left wondering how on earth they managed it when you see the jagged outcrops of Carn Meini – the source of the Stonehenge Bluestones.
Historic tours of Wales are definitely for history buffs - you’ll be out exploring castles, churches and burial chambers to name a few, so an interest in history and culture is a must for this one. You should be happy getting out in all weathers – after all, this is a tour of Wales so it’s unlikely you’ll be running out of sun cream!
