The Welsh Dragon Tour
3 Day Budget Weekend Break to Wales - £89 per person

Telephone Booking Reference BAC HG 3DW

Day 1 London - Abergavenny
We leave behind the hustle and bustle of the big city and fill our lungs with fresh air en-route to the mountains and valleys of Britain’s only Principality, the majestic Wales, and even try to teach you a wee bit of Welsh along the way – some say Europe’s oldest language! After crossing the mighty Severn bridge we visit the border town of Chepstow with its Castle and we continue along the Wye valley to the romantic ruins of Tintern Abbey, inspiration for William Wordsworth. Lunch is in Europe's largest ruined castle, Caerphilly. We take an afternoon walk in the Brecon Beacons before arriving in the town of Abergavenny.

Day 2 Abergavenny - Caernarfon
Heading north towards Snowdonia National Park we stop at the source of the mighty rivers Severn and Wye high up in the Welsh mountains before having lunch in the ruined Welsh Castell-y-Bere, the last strong hold of the independant Welsh princes. We’ll take in some gorgeous villages like Portmeirion, home of many television shows, then head on to Snowdonia National Park, where we’ll stretch our legs again and hike around in some of this country’s most dramatic scenery. Tonight we stop in the walled town of Caernarfon, which is in the shadow of one of Britain’s most spectacular castles, built by the invading King of England, Edward I and where the original and current Prince of Wales was inaugurated.

Day 3 Caernarfon - London
Before we start making our way back to London we’ll take you over to the Isle of Anglesey, home of the famous ‘Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch’, one of the longest place names in the world and we’ll not be leaving until all of you can pronounce it perfectly! Back to mainland Wales and off to Conwy to see another magnificent castle and also Britain's smallest house. Continuing along the north Wales coast we cross over into England and make our final stop - Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon, a beautiful tudor olde worlde style town. Then we make our way back to London.

What's Included and what's extra -
This tour is all about CHOICE and using your hard earned cash the way YOU choose. It's your trip not ours, so if you want to spend your budget in a different way to the next guy then that's cool with us - is that not what traveling is all about? This way, if you don't want to visit an attraction, you haven't paid for it - great! Accommodation is GUARANTEED on all our tours in great backpacker hostels (budget £12 - 15 per night) - simply pay as you go! If you wish to treat yourself to a twin/double room let us know prior to the day of departure and we will do our best to assist you with your request. (Please be aware, not all stops have these options and we cannot always guarantee availability). All have self-catering kitchens, most have laundry facilities and will give you a real British welcome!
