Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area, early this morning we'll head to the Cardiff area. Here we'll pay a short visit to St Fagan's National History Museum for an insight into the heritage and culture of Wales. Explore over 40 original buildings, dating from different periods of Welsh history, watch craftsmen at work and see native livestock breeds before we continue to our hotel in time for dinner.

Day Two

This morning we'll head to Llantrisant and the Royal Mint. After a short film sets the scene, you'll join your guide for the short walk to the factory experience. Learn how blank pieces of metal are transformed into the coins you use every day, and watch the process in action from a viewing area above the striking hall. For a small charge, you'll have the chance to strike your own coin - a unique memento of your visit.

Afterwards, explore the six zones of the Mint's Interactive Exhibition, learn about its long history, and find out more about the coins and medals it produces for over 90 different countries.

Leaving the Mint, we'll begin our journey home, stopping en route for the chance to have lunch and arriving back at your original pick-up point in the early-to-mid evening.

Further Information

Changes to your itinerary

In certain circumstances it may be necessary to visit St Fagan's on Day Two.

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

*Low deposit of £25 per person applies to new bookings made between 7th February and 31st March 2017 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to selected coach-inclusive holidays. This offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.
