Cultural Tours

The mythical west Wales tour.

On this tour you are accompanied by a historian with a deep passion and knowledge of Wales. You will learn some Welsh, sample traditional Welsh food and learn about the ancient history and culture of Wales. Gareth, your guide is a fluent Welsh speaker and he will give you an insight into Wales that wouldn't be available with a standard tour operator. <br>The area we will visit is dotted with quaint old towns and picturesque villages which seem untouched by time. The South West is the home of Pembrokeshire coast national park, and is an area renowned for the beauty of its beaches and coastline. For the lovers of castles there many to discover with Carreg Cennen, Pembroke and Kidwelly being three of the most impressive.<br>An example of a tour could be a visit to the wonderfully preserved Norman Castle at Pembroke, then lunch in the beautiful medieval port of Tenby followed by a stop off in Laugharne, the former home of the poet Dylan Thomas.

Some castle ruins, free and open to walk around. The views across Three Cliffs Bay are absolutely stunning, and although compartively the ruins aren't particularly complete, there's a clear and iconic entryway and several walls. If you're in the area and have the chance, I'd definitely recommend a visit, although I'd look up the history in advance or bring a guide book of the region as there are no information boards on-site. Access is a little difficult - the car park is quite a way for the elderly or very young children, and either route from the car park has natural paths. One, across a golf course, is probably your best shot, although uneven in places. The other treks sand dunes, great for intrepid explorers and energetic children, but many of the boardwalks provided have rotten supports and so are unsafe.

We were enjoying a lovely evening walk but it was spoiled by a large group of teenagers drinking in the ruins. We weren't able to get near and had to turn around.

Well worth a visit, bit of a walk over a golf course but well worth it. The ruins are right on the edge of a cliff so be careful, but the view is amazing. Have a read of the history behind the ruins first, makes it more interesting when you get there.

Came accross this ruined castle on walking the Gower coastal path. It is simply there ... no signs, no entrance fee, you just wander round the ruin. It is in a wonderful location and a good spot for some great photos of the Three Cliffs Bay. You have to walk there as you cannot drive within a couple of mile of it. It could be improved, however, with some information signs on the site. We found some details online which told us of its history and a little about its layout, so well worth looking online when you are there. this information, could very easily and at relatively little cost be made available onsite.
