Day 1 - The National Memorial Arboretum comprises of 150 acres of trees and memorials devoted to the concept of Remembrance. It is the home of the Armed Forces Memorial, a striking and emotive structure that gives recognition and thanks for those who have died whilst on duty or as a result of terrorist action since WWII and acknowledges the enduring sacrifice of those who mourn their loss. Lunch can be included consisting of a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, a variety of locally sourced pastries, cakes and biscuits and a choice of tea or coffee. At the Millennium Chapel of Peace and Forgiveness you will be given a welcome talk in the Chapel, a perfect introduction to the National Memorial Arboretum. An included 60 minute Land Train Tour which incorporates the outer lying points of the Arboretum. You will take in many additional memorials and a short meander along the River Tame, with a complete and informative commentary.
Day 2 - Llandrindod Wells is situated seven hundred feet above sea level and surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in Wales and is one of Britain’s hidden treasures. It was the Victorians who developed the town into one of the most fashionable Spa towns in Britain, and you can still visit the Pump Room where it was once possible to take the mineral rich waters. Temple Gardens is the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by, whilst for the more energetic there is a purpose-built indoor bowling centre nearby.
Day 3 - Machynlleth and a day of dramatic coast and mountain scenery. It is here that the Welsh rebel leader Owain Glyndwr set up his Welsh Parliament in 1404. It therefore has some entitlement to the claim to be the 'ancient capital of Wales'. Continuing along the shores of the Dovey Estuary we arrive in the seaside resort of Tywyn on the Cardigan Bay coast of southern Snowdonia. The Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow-gauge steam railway, set in the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside. Running from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol, the line passes the delightful Dolgoch Falls. Into the glorious Welsh countryside we pass mighty Cadir Idris, looming nearly 3,000 feet above the town of Dolgellau, as we travel to the attractive mountain village of Dinas-Mawddwy.
Day 4 - The seaside resort of Aberystwyth is nestled between three hills and two beaches and hosts some castle ruins, a pier and a harbour. A ride on one of the 'Great Little Trains of Wales' - the Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway (summer only). The Elan Valley with its series of spectacular reservoirs in a dramatic scenic setting. The visitor centre has an exhibit of the water scheme, showing photographs of houses drowned when the reservoirs were built.
Day 5 - Hay-on-Wye, called by some the second hand book capital of Britain. Continuing along the Herefordshire lanes, we visit the pretty medieval town of Ludlow.
