The Roman invasion in Wales was not as comprehensive as in Britain due to its rugged terrain and hostile tribes, but Romans did have some success. Today the south of Wales is dotted with some well preserved Roman sites near major cities like Cardiff (make sure to visit the Cardiff Roman Fort), Swansea (nearby forts exist in Neath and Loughor), and Brecon (with its impressive Brecon Gaer Fort) - as well as in some cities often overlooked by tourists such as Carmarthen (which has a remarkable Roman Ampitheatre) and Newport (with the beautiful Caerleon Roman Fortress, Baths, and Amphitheatre). If you love history, make sure to add all these sites to your list because with a rental car you can make time for all of them and more! This is a flexible vacation package. Select your number of nights in each city, desired hotel, and activities.

Trip Summary

  • Cardiff

    Cardiff is the capital of Wales. It is also its most populous city and the epicenter of political, economical, social, and cultural life in Wales. With over 20 million visitors arriving each year, it is easily Wales`s most-visited tourist destination. In the early 19th century, the small town of Cardiff experienced a meteoric rise as one of the principal ports in the British Empire, and the area around the port is now a noteworthy tourist area which is home to such buildings as the Welsh National Assembly, the Pierhead Building, and the Millennium Centre. Other noteworthy sights include the BBC Drama Centre in the city center, where such TV shows as the dramas Casualty and the Welsh-language Pobol y Cwm are recorded; and the city`s two grand cathedrals: Cardiff Cathedral (Roman Catholic) and Llandaff Cathedral (Anglican), the latter dating from the 12th century. Cardiff Castle was built on the site of a 3rd-century Roman fort; the castle we see today also dates from the 12th century. Visit Cardiff Castle, Cardiff Bay, St Fagans National Museum of History, National Museum Cardiff, Caerphilly Castle, Wales Millennium Centre, Mermaid Quay, Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff Cathedral, Pierhead Building, and so much more!

  • Carmarthen

    Carmarthenshire is not just home to our National Botanic Garden but also houses Aberglasney Gardens – Wales equivalent to the Lost Gardens of Heligan only on not quite such a large scale. Both Gardens attract growing numbers of visitors and are both well worth a visit. As well as being interesting from a plants and planting view between them they also host a wealth of events spanning many months of the year.

    Enjoy Carmarthen Park, Kidwelly Castle, Oriel Myrddin Gallery, Carmarthen Castle, Saint Peter's Church, Laugharne Castle and much more.

  • Brecon

    Brecon is a bustling market town right at the top edge of the glorious Brecon Beacons National Park. It's known for the famous Brecon Jazz Festival, independent shops and cafés, history, military connections and of course, the magnificent cathedral. Brecon is the perfect base for exploring the national park, watersports and fishing in the local rivers, canal and lakes, plus cycling and mountain biking. Punch Maughan, Brecon Beacons Tourism Ambassador, takes us on a brief tour of the town.

    Visit Brecon Cathedral, The Regimental Museum of Royal Welsh, Brecon Canal Basin, Llangorse Lake, Y Gaer Museum, Art Gallery and Library and much more.

  • Newport

    Newport is surrounded by beautiful landscapes including the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the undulating Vale of Usk, famous for its salmon fishing, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Forest of Dean – all less than an hour’s drive from Newport. Famous for its docks, the Roman remains in nearby Caerleon and its association with the 19th-century Chartist movement, Newport is full of cultural surprises and is certainly a Welsh city on the rise.
