COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 We depart our home area and head for South Wales making suitable comfort stops along the way, including a stop for
lunch in Chippenham, nestled on the banks of the River Avon. We are welcomed at the hotel in Cardiff with a cup of tea/coffee on arrival allowing for time to freshen up before heading to our Welsh Banquet (starting between 7-7.30pm). They advise that smart casual wear is appropriate. This evening will be relaxed and informal where we will enjoy the best of Welsh entertainment, Welsh food and the warmest of welcomes from our hosts who will entertain us with a selection of traditional and contemporary songs. Here we have a glass of mead on arrival followed by a 3-course meal, including half a bottle of wine (or soft drink). The Welsh Banquets at Cardiff Castle are hosted in either the stone-vaulted, atmospheric 15th century Undercroft or the Interpretation Centre, which offers a unique blend of contemporary slate interiors and original 4th century Roman Walls with stunning views of the Keep. The rooms have round tables, usually seating 10 guests to a table. Seating plans will not be guaranteed but a request can be made at time of booking. At approx. 10pm when our evening ends, we head back to the hotel which is only a 10-minute drive away.
DAY 2 After breakfast spend the morning in Cardiff with time for lunch to be purchased before returning to home area, making suitable comfort stops along the way. Cardiff’s rich culture has a diverse range of influences, from the Romans and Normans of antiquity to the industrial revolution and the coal industry – which transformed Cardiff from a small town into a thriving, international city. There is a variety of cafes and restaurants to choose from for lunch today.
