Take a trip to Wales and escape to the beauty and history of “The Land of Castles“ on this guided vacation. Leave the bustle of London for the green landscapes of England’s countryside, visiting Stonehenge and Bath en route to Wales.

Spend two nights in Cardiff, with plenty to see around Welsh capital city, including fascinating St. Fagans National Museum of History and fairytale Cardiff Castle. On the way to North Wales, drive through beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park and stop in the pretty towns of Brecon and Builth Wells. Meet locals who have a strong culture and heritage and still speak a Celtic language natively. Overnight in Llangollen where you might wish to take a stroll along the Victoria Promenade.

You’ll travel through Snowdonia National Park via Betws-y-Coed and on to Caernarfon, famous for its enormous medieval castle and have some time to spend in its vibrant shops, cafés, and traditional pubs. On your way to England’s Manchester, stop in Chester and take photos of its 16th century Tudor buildings traditionally constructed from oak with the timbers stained with black tar. Spend the last night of your escorted tour in Manchester where you gather with your traveling companions, and raise a glass to this Welsh adventure.
See why this escape through Wales’s beauty and history is made even better without the crowds of the high season on your affordable, guided Welsh vacation.
