Brecon & Cruise on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal We journey through the Brecon Beacons, with its picture perfect reservoirs, to Brecon, a beautiful cathedral town with views of the majestic mountains all around. We have some free time to explore the local shops and attractions as well as enjoying a cruise on the Monmouth and Brecon Canal. This historical waterway and fantastic feat of engineering (built before roads and railways) takes us on a scenic ride through a canal lock and over an aqueduct which carries the canal over the River Usk.

New Quay’s picturesque houses, pubs, and restaurants cling to the sides of the hills rising above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay on the coast of West Wales. The town was once important for fishing and shipbuilding with wooden boats being built on the beaches. The sheltered harbour and golden beaches are the focus of activity in the summer when New Quay becomes a bustling and vibrant holiday resort where sailing, fishing, water sports, and relaxation, are among the main attractions. Bottlenose Dolphins are regularly seen swimming and diving as they follow the shoals of mackerel into the bay. For the chance of a great view of these beautiful creatures stand at the end of the Quay.

(A mystery day trip to a seaside resort) We are a nation of seaside lovers, not surprising considering that we live on one of the world’s most diverse and beautiful islands! Join us on a day out to the seaside - not too near and not too far - where we can kick off our shoes, get some sun on our faces and enjoy all that we love about our fabulous seaside resorts.

£22 £20 £19 Tenby or Saundersfoot

Tenby is probably the most iconic seaside town in Wales, rivalling places like Mevagissey and Polperro for quaintness and charm. This pretty seaside town has three great beaches; north, south and castle, each with its own character and all facing in different directions so at least you'll be sheltered if it is windy! OR Saundersfoot is a small seaside resort in between Tenby and Amroth. It is much more compact than Tenby with charm and character of its own that is well worth exploring, particularly for those a little less energetic. The main attraction, though, is it’s long, wide and sandy beach.

Weston-super-Mare Experience the very best of Somerset from one of the best British seaside resorts. Weston-super-Mare seafront has recently undergone a huge transformation, the main focal point of which is the spectacular new Grand Pier, but it still embraces everything you would expect from a traditional resort including great beaches, plenty of things to do and of course, donkeys! The Weston-super-Mare experience doesn’t just start and end on the beach, there’s plenty more in and around the town too, with an abundance of parks and green spaces, shops and places of interest.

Hereford Hereford is a lovely city with a lively feel. There are lots of things to do, not least indulging in some shopping! Wander around the independent stores in the historical centre and call in to the prestigious Old Market, built on the site of the old livestock market. A visit to the 13th Century Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral is a must. It’s the largest medieval map of the world in existence! Don’t miss dropping into The Cider Museum to find out how this ‘golden amber’ is produced.
