Wales & South West England are the areas of Britain most associated with wonderful prehistoric sites and abound in the legends of King Arthur & Merlin.It’s not just the most well known site of Stonehenge that deserves a visit. The stone circle at Avebury is larger and more accessible, and sits close to one of the largest man-made hills in Europe, Silbury. The fisrt person to write of the exploits of King Arthur was from Wales, and he set the legends, passed down by oral tradition, very firmly in the context of Wales and South West England. Wonderful landscapeslike the Cornwall Coast and Tintagel, and the Roman town of Caerleon, which many say was the main base of Arthur, are ready to be explored.
The ‘Little Fort of the Fishes’ is an idyllic town to explore. Circled by medieval walls, its looks out from high cliffs over wide sandy beaches towards the monastic isalnd of Caldey.
Tenby also lies along the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, one of the most impressive sections of the Wales Coastal Path, which was opened to entirely circle the country in 2012.
Nearby lies the small city of St David’s, site of the most important cathedral in Wales. Pembroke is another wonderful walled town, with an impressive castle which was the birth place of the Tudor dynasty.
The city is known the world over as being the birthplace of ‘The Beatles’, the band who revolutionised popular music.
What is less well known is the glorious architecture of its fine civic buildings, created from the wealth of maritime and mercantile commerce of Liverpool. It was a city that traded with, and displays influences from, all corners of the globe.
It is a passionate and welcoming city, with many ‘must see; attravtions, such as Albert Dock, 2 cathedrals, the Walker Art Gallery, outstanding museums and the world famous ‘Cavern Club’.
