Add in a steam railway, spectacular seasides and must-see gardens and your guests are in for a treat with this tour! PACKAGED ITINERARY Day 1 Arrival Today we visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales , a beautiful mix of modern and historic gardens and woodland trails set in the idyllic Carmarthenshire countryside. Take a journey through six Mediterranean climate zones to view some of the world’s most endangered plants in the garden’s centrepiece, the world’s largest single-span glasshouse. Admire the vast array of exotic plants in the Tropical House, wonder at the fabulous displays at the British Bird of Prey Centre and discover the lakes, ponds and an inspiring range of themed gardens, including a Japanese Garden, Bog Garden and Apothecary’s Garden. Day 3 Carmarthen & Tenby In the morning, discover legendary Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales where Merlin was said to have been born. Then spend the afternoon exploring the quintessential seaside town of Tenby, whose narrow streets wind down from the medieval centre to the picturesque harbour, framed by pastel painted cottages. Wander through the charming cobbled streets and take time out to watch the world go by from a quaint café or relax with an ice cream on one of Tenby’s glorious golden sandy beaches.
