BETTER TRAVEL is pleased to offer you, the discerning traveller, the opportunity to visit in four days a few of the classical Castles of South, Mid, West and North Wales. There are of course many other visits ( cities, towns, stately homes, farm land etc. ) which can be seen if booking a longer stay in the uk.We can meet you at your place of arrival ( airport or seaport ) if you so wish.
THIS TOUR IS primarily for visitors who have already planned a visit to the UK and would like a short sight seeing tour of Wales. Should you really be into Castles then why not take advantage of the castles that offer accommodation and experience living like Royalty.
The tour price can include accommodation on a B&B basis, (there are several places locally we recommend for an evening meal that offer quality fresh food), and transport in either a saloon car or people carrier.( depending on the amount of passengers in the party ).
With names as famous as Carreg Cennen and Caerphilly, Chepstow, Caernafon, Beaumaris, Conwy or Lamphey Bishops Palace and Carew, these treasured ruins of the dark and middle ages are familiar to both residents and visitors alike.
Today will see us start our tour, meeting at our mutually agreed point in South Wales. ( or elsewhere if required ). Our first venue will be a visit to the fine castle of Caerphilly with the leaning tower, they still have jousting and other ancient art forms here - maybe on the day of your visit? Lunch could be taken at Caerphilly town near to the castle if required and then continue our trip to see the Chepstow castle.
Today we visit Carew, claimed to be the most attractive castle in South West Wales, and then we take a short drive to the famous walled Town of Tenby where lunch can be taken. After lunch we then head north to see the fabulous Powys Castle in mid-wales near to Welshpool.
This day sees us travelling through some of the best sight seeing country side in Wales as we head north via the Snowdon maintain range country park area to visit Caernafon Castle which is in a well preserved state with powerful defences going back to the 12th century. Caernarfon Castle protects the town and was the site of the Prince of Wales's Investiture by the Queen in 1969, it was also revisited by the then Royal couple Charles and Diana in 1981.The Castle also houses the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welch Fusiliers â a sightseeing must do.
No visit to Wales would be complete without a culminating visit to Edward 1st most dramatic and grand Castles of North Wales; both echo strength and power. You really do feel a sense of irrelevance when you walk into these giants. Beaumaris Castle with its moat and foreboding presence overlooking the entrance to the Menai Straits was the last and largest castle to be built by King Edward 1st in Wales. No visit to Wales is complete unless one travels further north to see the much admired Conwy Castle.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
