Tracks of the Welsh Dragon
Delight in The Golden Age of Travel on a steam journey, hauled by 61306 Mayflower, discovering some of Britain’s stunningly beautiful rail journeys
From its wonderful castles that are an inescapable part of the landscape to its fine peaks and beaches, Wales has an enormous amount to offer visitors. Compact but geologically varied, there is plenty to discover in this diverse country.
The countryside and coast play host to a mix of historic sites, slate quarries and Celtic shrines. You’ll also find cultural centres here, along with World Heritage fortresses that form links in the medieval ‘Iron Ring’ built by Edward I and awe-inspiring landscapes.
If you want to experience all this and more, take one of our group tours to Wales. These are specially curated to give you the opportunity to uncover the beauty of this unique country.
Both our group tours of Wales – Tracks of the Welsh Dragon and Wonderous Wales – give you the chance to enjoy Snowdonia first-hand. The mountains and coast make up Snowdonia National Park, while the captivating Llŷn Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can explore around 200 miles of coastline, going from the mountains to the beach in one day.
The culture and identity of Snowdonia is influenced by myths, legends, folklore and magic, associated with almost every lake, hill, mountain and village. The Welsh tradition of storytelling has ensured these rich and varied tales remain as vibrant as ever. The most famous of all, a series of medieval stories of the Arthurian age that detail encounters between the mortal and underworlds, are known collectively as the Mabinogion.
If you long to journey to the unique fantasy village of Portmeirion, where Italy meets North Wales, choose our Tracks of the Welsh Dragon trip. This escorted tour takes in Wales’ most quirky corner. The village was the vision of one man: architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Be amazed by its many beautiful houses and gardens and indulge in your passion for all things rail with visits to some of the great little railways of North Wales.
The Welsh word 'hiraeth' refers to a sense of longing for the green, green grass of home. Following your visit, you too may sense a feeling of hiraeth that can only be sated when you return.
