Tour Wales with a private guide. You will depart from your flat or hotel in London and head for Wales. Medieval Welsh folklore abounds - heroes who leap on bubbles without breaking them - missionary saints who sail the seas on leaves - they are kept alive in a country of remote mountains.
Wales is a place with much variety --a place with sparkling lakes, windswept cliffs, and people who still speak Welsh (a language which seems to be lacking vowels!).

Day 1: Winchester - Salisbury - Stonehenge - Bath
Depart London and visit the cathedral cities of Winchester, Salisbury before arriving at the mysterious Stonehenge. Today's destination will be the spectacular city of Bath. Bath was founded as a health spa by the Romans and you will see the beautifully preserved Roman Baths, the Georgian Pump Room, Robert Adam's Pulteney Bridge, the magnificent Abbey, and Royal Crescent. Overnight in Bath
Day 2: Caerleon - Cardiff - Blaenafon
Crossing into Wales, you will visit the Caerleon Roman fortress on your way to Cardiff, capital of Wales with its 11th century Castle and historic Cathedral. You will see the shed in which Dylan Thomas wrote and descend the Blaenafon Big Pit Coal Mine. The mine is now a museum where ex-miners provide a vivid reminder of this tough industry. The tour will allow you to explore the splendid mountain scenery of the Brecon Beacons and the Elan Valley following a chain of sparkling lakes. Overnight in Brecon Beacons area.
Days 3 and 4: North Wales - Snowdonia National Park - Caerphilly - Portmeirion
Your Wales tour will continue to North Wales, a region famous for its natural beauty, most notably the Snowdonia National Park. You will visit some truly majestic castles such as Caerphilly, Beaumaris, Harlech & Caernarfon, Bodnant Gardens, sloping down to the river Conwy with the peaks of Snowdon as a backdrop and Portmeirion, a bizarre Italianate village on a private peninsula - setting of the TV series 'The Prisoner'.
Also, you will visit the slate caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog and, if you like, take a scenic ride on a narrow-gauge steam train. Overnights will be in North Wales.
Day 5: Shrewsbury - Ludlow - Stratford
Your tour will drive through Shrewsbury and Ludlow, both boasting pretty half-timbered Tudor buildings returning to London via Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswolds, Oxford or spectacular Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.
