Christmas Eve - The Royal Mint Experience
We’ll visit The Royal Mint for a guided tour behind the scenes of the world’s leading export mint. Discover how the Royal Mint has evolved over the last 1,100 years and how the designs of our ‘small change’ provides a glimpse into the history of our country, and others. After a light lunch, we return to the hotel early this afternoon. Maybe take a stroll through the Victorian arcades or pay a visit to Cardiff Castle. This attractive heritage site began as a Roman fort, and has been passed through the hands of many noble families. For those wishing to attend midnight mass this evening, there are several churches within walking distance of our hotel. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served on your return.

Enjoy this morning at your leisure. You’ll have plenty of time to relax or attend a church service before a traditional Christmas lunch is served with all the trimmings. After the Queen’s Speech, tea and Christmas cake will be offered. Later this evening, light entertainment will complete Christmas Day.
Boxing Day - Cardiff
This morning we board a coach for a guided orientation tour of Cardiff. With a history spanning over two millennia, you can see the diverse range of influences which turned the Roman settlement into a successful industrial city and the thriving capital it is today.

With the rest of the day at leisure, maybe continue the Christmas spirit with a visit to Winter Wonderland, where the Alpine Village serves delicious treats such as German sausages, crepes and glühwein.
