Our scenic trip today follows the winding route of the picturesque Wye Valley along the banks of the River Wye, which forms the border between Wales and England. We reach Monmouth, where there will be free time to explore this historic town. Well known for its iconic 13th century gatehouse bridge, Monmouth has a famous past and is renowned for its independent shops and being the UK's first Bee Town.

We continue to Ross-on-Wye; enjoy a saunter along the town's 19th century mock Gothic walls, and admire the pastel painted buildings that are scattered across the hillside.

Later in the day we join the Dean Forest Railway which runs through beautiful woodlands and countryside, giving you chance to experience the relaxing pace of this typical country branch line.

Enjoy a trip to Cardiff, Wales' compact capital city. From its historic castle to the modern imposing Principality Stadium, it is a delight to explore.

There's a host of Victorian shopping arcades with inviting independent shops and cafés, and the vibrant waterfront area is perfect for watching the world go by.
