Day Trips by CoacH:
Day Trip 1: £5 (0-16 years), £10 (adult) – includes admission to the castle
- Raglan Castle - built in the 1430s, and besieged and captured by the parliamentarian forces in 1646 during the English Civil War. It is still a substantial castle and even has a moat (www.cadw.gov.wales/daysout/raglancastle/?lang=en).
- Gloucester - a historic city to explore on your own, including the sites where the English Reformer, John Hooper, preached and was martyred (1555), plus Hillfield Gardens, the 200-year-old prison, the historic docks, cathedral, etc (www.thecityofgloucester.co.uk).
- St. Fagan’s National Museum of History – one of Europe’s leading open-air museums and Wales’s most popular heritage attraction. The museum is vast. Explore the living spaces that people once enjoyed (or endured), getting a good idea of what it was like to live in Wales from the time of the Celts to the present day. Besides a large variety of dwelling places, there are also carefully reconstructed farms, a church, shops, a workman’s club, a tannery, farmyard animals, an indoor museum, a café, etc. (www.museum.wales/stfagans).
