We Love

Getting an insight into the Royal Mint and how our coins have developed in the 1,100 years since it began.


Our holidays in South Wales offer a lot for a short break. There’s Cardiff, a lively city that’s existed for over two millennia. There’s the gorgeous Brecon Beacons, a must for anyone who loves wild scenery. There are fantastic castles - Caerphilly Castle sits in dramatic ruin in the middle of a lake, while Cardiff Castle still stands strong in the city’s centre. Other highlights include the heritage Brecon Mountain Railway, the hard-working Royal Mint and an abundance of other houses and manors that recognise the region’s frictions and glory.

  • The Royal Mint Experience - Brecon Mountain Railway

    The Royal Mint Experience - Brecon Mountain Railway

    Money makes the world go round - and the Royal Mint has been making it for the last 1,100 years. As well as striking sterling, they’ve made commemorative coins and the medals for the military and the London 2012 Olympic Games, plus commissions for over 100 other countries. We take a tour behind the scenes to discover how the world’s leading export mint, and our coins, have changed through the centuries.

    Afterwards, we head to the beautiful, rugged Brecon Beacons, streaked with lakes, waterfalls, and the occasional tiny village or stone ruin. Take your seat for a steam-pulled journey on the Brecon Mountain Railway, along the Taf Fechan Reservoir and up to Torpantau, the summit of the original Brecon & Merthyr Railway. Before journeying back, you have the opportunity to see where the steam locomotives and carriages are repaired.

    • Visit the Royal Mint (morning)
    • Brecon Mountain Railway journey (afternoon)

  • Cardiff - Llancaiach Fawr Manor

    Cardiff - Llancaiach Fawr Manor

    We board a coach for a guided tour of Cardiff, with free time to discover the diverse influences on the Roman settlement. You can sense its history - its ancient castle is a good place to start - but the university, great shops, thriving pubs and national Principality Stadium (home of Welsh Rugby Union) all keep this city alive.

    Later, we visit Llancaiach Fawr Manor. This unassuming home was built with 4ft-thick walls - considered necessary during the turbulent Tudor reigns. It’s been restored and furnished as it would’ve been in 1645, when the Justice of the Peace lived here.

    • Cardiff city tour by coach (morning)
    • Visit Llancaiach Fawr Manor (afternoon)

  • National Trust Tredegar House - Caerphilly Castle

    National Trust Tredegar House - Caerphilly Castle

    From its humble medieval beginnings, Tredegar House has seen many changes through the years. Today, you’ll see 17th-century glitz in the Gilt Room, enjoy the eccentric 1930s bedrooms, and imagine the clamour of pans in the Great Kitchen.

    Ten miles down the road, and several centuries apart, the biggest castle in Wales was constructed. Even in ruin the thick, grey stone walls of Caerphilly Castle, rising straight out of the centre of its lake, would halt any potential invaders. We take time to imagine life in this frontline fortress, and ponder over the leaning tower - even wonkier than Pisa’s!

    • Visit to National Trust Tredegar House and Caerphilly Castle (all day)

    Parkway Hotel and Spa, Cwmbran (4-star)

  • Cwmbran, Newport

    Day 5 Cwmbran, Newport

    You’ll be collected at 10am by your Titan vehicle for the journey home.
