Travel Itinerary for Your Wales Tour

Our Wonder of Wales Tour is a great way to discover the best that Wales to offer in just seven days. As part of a group with its own experienced tour guide, you’ll travel around this beautiful corner of Great Britain on a premium mini coach, stopping off at the country’s best sights and attractions. With Tourlane, it’s possible to book everything in one place ahead of your trip: flights, transfers, guides, and accommodation.

1. Cardiff and Caerleon

Your Wonders of Wales Tour will begin in the country’s vibrant capital city, Cardiff. Here, you’ll be given the perfect introduction to Wales through a visit to the Fagans National Museum of History. This is an open-air attraction that documents the history and culture of Welsh people. Later in the day, your experienced group leader will show you around Caerleon, and take you back in time to second-century Britain. This fascinating town is the site of an important Roman fortress, as well as an Iron Age hill fort.

2. Wye Valley and Tintern Abbey

In the Wye Valley, you’ll be introduced to the importance of coal to Welsh heritage with a visit to the Big Pit National Coal Museum in the Wye Valley. This was a working mine for 100 years (1880-1980) and has since become a popular tourist attraction. You’ll be taken underground and will experience the sounds, smells, and sights of coal mining in a truly authentic tour. Next, you’ll be driven to Tintern Abbey: a truly stunning 12-century ruin that nicely contrasts the industrial landscape from the morning. 

3. Vale of Llangollen

The next stop on your Wales tour is Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Llangollen, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the longest structure of its kind in the world. Built in 1795 and built of cast iron, this fascinating relic pays homage to the importance of canals in Wales’ industrial heritage.

4. Conwy

As part of this truly comprehensive Wales tour, you’ll head to Conwy, on the north coast of the country. This quaint walled town is one of the most historic in Wales, and has some notable attractions for you to visit. These include the medieval town walls and the vast Conwy Castle, which dates back to the 13th-century. As part of your tour package, you’ll enjoy a special performance from a quintessentially Welsh male voice choir—a real highlight of the trip.

5. Nant Gwrtheyrn

Next up is a visit to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch—the village with the longest name in Europe! After an obligatory photo with the hilariously long sign, you’ll practice Welsh pronunciation at the Welsh Language Heritage Centre at a fun language lesson. 

6. Snowdonia National Park

One of the highlights of the trip is up next: an unforgettable steam train ride across Snowdonia National Park on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway. Stretching for 40 miles, this is truly the most comfortable, stylish way to see this breathtaking part of Wales. Have your camera ready!

7. Castell Henllys

Known as “the Land of Magic and Enchantment,” prepare to be charmed by the beautiful landscapes around Castell Henllys, which is an important archaeological site. Nowadays, there’s a reconstructed fort for you to explore. Next, your tour guide will take you to the  National Coracle Centre (a coracle is a special kind of boat that is traditional in Wales.) 

8. St. David’s Head

Before the end of your trip, your tour guide will take you to St. David’s Head, a spectacular headland and one last photo opportunity. This natural wonder is located in Pembrokeshire in southwest Wales. Finally, you’ll be taken back to Cardiff, where your tour ends.
