DAY 2

Bristol & SS Great Britain

After a leisurely breakfast, we begin our guided walking tour from our central Bristol hotel and discover why much of the city is best seen on foot. We’ll learn about the city’s street art, history, culture, food and art, spotting Bristol’s top sights along the way. We end our walking tour by using the Cross Harbour Ferry to enjoy a visit to the SS Great Britain. When she was launched in 1843, the SS Great Britain was the largest ship in the world and the first screw-propelled, ocean-going, wrought iron ship. Once our walking tour has finished, we can have some time at leisure to further explore around SS Great Britain and all that the city has to offer.

This evening, we come together for dinner in our hotel restaurant.

Tintern Abbey & the Wye Valley

Today we cross the border into Wales and take a visit to the Welsh national icon – Tintern Abbey. The Abbey ruins still stand in roofless splendour on the banks of the River Wye, nearly 500 years since its tragic fall from grace. Learn about the Abbey’s long and turbulent history before we continue up the Wye Valley for a cruise down the River Wye. We can sit back, enjoy the scenery, and relax before transferring back to our hotel.

After a freshen up at our hotel, we’ll meet in the hotel restaurant for dinner.
