We visit the delightful South of Wales as we prepare for Christmas! Based at the Angel Hotel in Cardiff this tour visits Cardiff Castle and the National Waterfront Museum, Lydiard House and the wonderful Christmas markets in Cardiff & Swansea.
Day 1 A taxi picks you up from home and takes you to your Woods coach, which then travels via Marlborough before continuing across the Severn Estuary to our hotel.
Day 2 After a leisurely breakfast we have time to explore Cardiﬀ, starting with a visit to Cardiﬀ Castle where we discover over 2000 years of history, from Roman fort to Norman stronghold to Victorian Gothic fairy-tale palace! Most of the castle is accessible with few steps, but some areas will not be suitable for the less mobile. The rest of the day is free in Cardiﬀ to explore the Christmas market with more than 200 wooden chalets set up in the pedestrianised streets of Cardiﬀ city centre.
Day 3 Today we make our way to Swansea where we begin our day with entry to The National Waterfront Museum, telling the story of the industrial & maritime heritage of Wales. In the grounds of the museum you will ﬁnd the Museum Green which once again will be transformed into a winter wonderland. You then have some free time for your own exploration of Swansea city centre and Christmas market, we return to Cardiﬀ and our hotel.
Day 4 Departing after breakfast, we travel to Lydiard House, with time to explore the ground ﬂoor staterooms which have been beautifully restored and enjoy an included light lunch. We continue to the local area and are met by our taxis to take us home.

There are traditional lounge areas, dining room and bar, and the individually styled bedrooms have TV, telephone, WiFi, hairdryer and hospitality tray. The hotel has a lift to all ﬂoors, but some steps throughout.
