Description
Enjoy a relaxing South Wales weekend break on the glorious sweep of Swansea Bay, staying right on the seafront at Aberavon, one of Wales' longest sandy beaches. Take a leisurely stroll along the promenade to enjoy the beautiful views across the bay or maybe treat yourself in one of the ice cream parlours, traditional pubs or cafes. Enjoy a day out on the glorious Gower Peninsula (Y Gwyr), the 15-mile thumb of land which was designated the UK's first official AONB in 1956 and a take ride on a heritage railway through the handsome rural landscapes of the Brecon Beacons (Bannau Brycheiniog).

Departure points to suit you...
Crusader Holidays uses an interchange system, taking place at either Beaconsfield Services (M40), South Mimms Services (M25/A1M) or Thurrock Services (M25).

Here you may have to change to your holiday coach and we are renowned for ensuring that this is smooth and efficient.

The holiday coaches typically depart from Beaconsfield Services at 11.15, Thurrock Services at around 09.30 and South Mimms Services at 10.30. Some customers find it more convenient to join direct at the interchange, please let is know when booking if this is the case.

*Due to increased operational costs, from Monday 16th October 2023 Dover, Folkestone, Canterbury & Ashford joining points will be subject to a £25.00 per person supplement on all 2024 UK Tours.

NOTE: Pick up points are a guide so please refer to your holiday confirmation for specific locations as details are subject to change.
Itinerary
Highlights
- Hotel for 3 nights with breakfast & dinner- Welcome drink on arrival- Guided tour of Gower Peninsula- Welsh Cream Tea at Gower Heritage Centre- Return ride on Brecon Mountain Railway- Scenic drive through the Brecon Beacons

Your Itinerary
Day 1 - After boarding your holiday coach, head to the South Wales coast with a stop en-route in the historic walled border town of Chepstow which sits on the Welsh side of the River Wye. Arrive in Aberavon for your 4 night stay DBB

Day 2 - 3 At leisure in Aberavon with two included excursions

INCLUDED EXCURSIONS
Mumbles & Gower Peninsula
Start the day on the other side of Swansea Bay in Mumbles, the 'Gateway to Gower' and much-loved seaside retreat of Swansea dwellers. Full of character with its lighthouse and famous Victorian pier, a visit to Mumbles is a charmingly old-fashioned delight - plenty of independent boutiques and quirky galleries too. Then head off to the Gower Heritage Centre, a rural life museum with a 12th century water powered mill, cider press and artisan craft shops. A local guide will take you on an exploration of the peninsula, a world of its own, pointing into the Bristol Channel. The region is fringed with sweeping yellow bays and precipitous cliffs whilst bracken heaths dot the interior where tiny villages, castle ruins and curious churches can be found. Enjoy a Welsh cream tea before returning to the hotel.

Brecon Beacons & Mountain Railway
All aboard the Brecon Mountain Railway which runs from Pant, 3 miles north of Merthyr Tydfil, to Torpantau following part of the route of the original Brecon & Merthyr Railway which closed in 1964. The journey takes you through Pontsticill and along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservior before climbing to Torpantau high in the Brecon Beacons (Bannau Brycheiniog). The return trip lasts about 90 minutes with a stop by Pontsticill station and Reservoir and time to visit the locomotive workshop at Pant station. Then take a scenic drive through the Brecon Beacons National Park which encompasses some of the finest and most varied scenery in Southern Wales. Hills of grass and rock tumble and climb around river valleys that lie between sandstone and limestone uplands, peppered with lakes and villages. Make a stop in Brecon, the picturesque market town in the Usk Valley famed for its Georgian architecture

Day 4 - After breakfast head homewards with plenty of Welsh memories. Arrive in your hometowns early evening.
