The Call

We'll be honest with you, we love Wales! And as its the part of Britain with the lowest international profile it's also our secret gem! We guarantee you'll return home filled with glorious memories and you'll be telling all your friends they really must visit too.

It's little wonder that the dragon is Wales national animal used on their flag as it was associated with King Arthur and other Celtic leaders.

Wales is majestic and otherworldly – lush green valleys filled with morning mist, craggy mountain peaks reaching through the clouds, sacred sites that span five thousand years and a formidable reputation founded on legends of Druids, wizards, dragons and witches. As the last retreat of the inhabitants of ancient Celtic Albion, the Welsh are still connected to the ‘olde ways’. Even today this depth of history and tradition is present in the very fabric of the land. Although the Welsh language is spoken in some areas everyone speaks English (and the money is British Pounds) and so its a very traveller-friendly country to visit.  

The Journey

From your arrival at London's Heathrow Airport  we head directly west to Cardiff, where you'll have time to visit the nearby Cardiff castle or rest up before our welcome dinner. The next day we'll head directly west to the historic city of St David’s, the smallest city in Britain (traditionally you had to have a cathedral to be called a city in Britain!), and home to some remarkable and magical historic sites. Some of these are sitting on clifftops with panoramic views over the ocean while others are inland,  including the Preseli Mountains, where archeologists have found origins of the first Stonehenge and its bluestones. 

After exploring Southwest Wales we return to England to the present day with a visit to the vibrant and historic city of Salisbury. The grand finale of this compact tour will be a day of visiting crop circles that are available to see.

Itinerary
Day 1 – Sun 24th July

Collection from London Heathrow Airport and transfer to the city of Cardiff, where we’ll stay for one night before traveling onto the Southwest of Wales.

Introductions/orientation meeting before dinner at the hotel.

Day 2 – Mon 25th July

We will travel from Cardiff and transfer in our private minibus to Britain's smallest city, St Davids of Pembrokeshire, where we will stay for two nights. This charming medieval city is the home of St David's Cathedral, still in use today, and is a short walk from some of the most stunning coastline in all of Wales. St Davids Head is Wales' most westerly  peninsula jutting out into the Celtic Sea. With this quaint city at your doorstep and the stunning Welsh coastline a walk away you will feel as though you've stepped through time and arrived in another world.

After lunch we'll visit the medieval Cathedral of St Davids founded by St. David. The present cathedral, started in 1130, was built on the site of St David's monastery which he founded in 600AD. Heading down a country lane we find St Non's holy well and chapel, where according to legend the well first sprang up as Non gave birth to St David. The views across St Brides Bay into the open ocean are wonderful from here. 

Dinner at the hotel.

Day 3 – Tues 26th July

We start the day by heading to a beautiful small harbour from where we walk up a path to the clifftop and Carreg Samson, a dolmen set high on a bluff overlooking the ocean, where we will begin to discover Wales rich neolithic history. Simply being at these sites is a transformational experience and we are great believers in allowing enough time for you to absorb the atmosphere and energy of sacred sites as well as learning of their history and significance. 

Stopping in a quaint village for lunch we will head for Pentre Ifan, Wales' most celebrated ancient monument, beneath the  Preseli Hills. Brought back to another time, we will connect to our Neolithic ancestors and the energy of the land. Close by we visit a hilltop cairn and the source of the original Stonehenge and bluestones. 

Free choice dinner not included

Day 4 – Weds 27th July

This morning we'll stop for lunch at Dyffryn Gardens before visiting the nearby chambered cairn at Tinkinswood. We'll then leave Wales and travel to the beautiful English city of Salisbury where we stay for the rest of this tour.

Free choice dinner not included

Day 5 - Thurs 28th July

Today we’ll head to Wiltshire to visit any crop circles that are available to visit. Each summer the unexplained phenomenon of crop circles is played out in fields of grain, particularly in the county of Wiltshire where geometric symbols, mandalas and beautiful patterns appear in the crop fields.

We have access to the information network that provides breaking news of the latest formations and so we know as soon as possible when there is a new circle we can visit.

You can try dowsing for any energy present in the crop circles and the Earth Energy currents that often link the circles to local sacred sites.  

Dinner at the hotel

Day 6/1 - Fri 29th July

To London Heathrow airport for return flights home, bon voyage!

 

OR - You will have the day free to explore Salisbury on your own, meeting up with those joining us for the Cornwall & Southwest England tour.

Introductions/orientation meeting before dinner at the hotel.
