Coastal Wales

Remarkable landscapes and castles, and fine food combine with strong Celtic roots, Welsh history, myth and language to lead you on a journey of discovery. The intricate country roads are perfect for exploring in your own vehicle as you drive from green valleys in the south to Snowdonia’s mountains in the north. Exploring Wales is easy. In the countryside, the roads are excellent, well signposted and largely toll free. Distances between towns are short and driving is on the left hand side of the road, same as in New Zealand.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a minimum 1.4 litre for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.

Travel: 01 Apr 18-31 Mar 19

Day 1: Cardiff – Swansea – Tenby (148km)
Explore Cardiff, a city bursting with historical arcades and modern shopping centres, museums, galleries and Cardiff Castle. Head west to Swansea, and onward to Tenby. Who can spot the castle on the island first? Stretch your legs on a sunset stroll through the narrow streets.
Day 2: Tenby – Pembroke – St David’s (60km)
An invigorating morning walk around the picturesque seaside harbour before continuing west to Pembroke and the imposing 12th century castle. Enjoy coastal scenery out to St David’s, Britain’s smallest city, but more like a bustling village with a magnificent cathedral.
Day 3: St David’s – Fishguard – Aberystwyth (116km)
From Fishguard, drive along the beautiful coastline of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Travel up the coast to Aberystwyth and the castle ruins dating back to the 13th century. This is a lovely town to stay with its sweeping seafront, energetic promenade and traditional seaside pier.
Day 4: Aberystwyth – Snowdonia – Caernarfon (150km)
Drive through Snowdonia National Park to view the magnificent architecture of Harlech Castle, perched on a rocky outcrop. Llyn Peninsula is a protected ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ where you’ll find the abandoned village of Nant Gwrtheym.
Day 5: Caernarfon – Conwy (163km)
Caernarfon Castle, World Heritage-listed, is one of the finest castles in Wales with murder holes and a moat. Detour inland through Snowdonia, home of Mount Snowdon.
Day 6: Conwy
This medieval town has a castle perfect for exploring with ramparts, towers, dark passages and dungeons, and a tiny house. From here you could carry on to Manchester or cross over on the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin.
