The Brecon Beacons
We travel the Brecon Beacons and marvel at the stunning scenery. It's both beautiful and diverse, with rolling countryside and valleys, wide open hillsides and wildly beautiful forests, lakes, waterfalls, and caves. The flora and fauna are remarkable. It is one of the last outposts for Welsh mountain ponies.
The Royal Mint
A government-owned mint that produces coins for the UK. A limited company that is wholly owned by Her Majesty’s Treasury and is under an exclusive contract to supply the nation’s coinage. The Royal Mint Experience has become one of the top-rated tourist attractions in South Wales. Guided tours give you unprecedented access to the Royal Mint and its history.
A visit to the bustling, coastal town of Aberystwyth with its street names and architecture that reflect the history and growth of the town since the Middle Ages. Expect to hear many people using Welsh as they go about their daily lives.
Vale of Rheidol Railway
A stunning journey of 12 miles through the ancient woodlands to Devil’s Bridge, home of the famous waterfalls, nestled in the magnificent Cambrian Mountains. See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields and meadows, woodland, and rugged mountain scenery. The narrow track gauge allows the railway to follow the contours of the terrain with many sharp curves and steep gradients which add to the railway’s charm. Birds of prey such as Red Kite and Buzzards are regularly seen high above the valley floor.
