We will first visit the Senedd, the main public building of Welsh National Assembly. It is a sustainable building, opened in 2006 and built of traditional Welsh material such as slate and Welsh oak, with an unusual heating system. It is one of the most environmentally friendly parliament buildings in the world. There will be time for coffee etc. before our guided tour round the Senedd.

We will then make our way to St. Fagans, a national history museum chronicling the historical life-style, culture and architecture of the Welsh people. It is one of Europe's leading open air museums and stands in the grounds of the magnificent St. Fagans Castle, a late 16th century manor house.

During the last fifty years over forty original buildings from different historical periods have been erected in the 100 acre parkland. Among them are houses, a farm, a school, a chapel, a splendid Workman's Institute and, recently, two iron age roundhouses have been added. Craftsmen in workshops are still demonstrating their traditional skills and their produce is usually on sale.

The on-site eateries provide a selection of delicious food but you are welcome to bring your own refreshments.

The cost is £12.00 which includes coach travel and tip for the driver (entrances are free).

Depart Riverside coach park 9:30 am
Pick-up at Balustrade, London Road 9:40 am

A day trip to Lundy makes for an unforgettable experience. Although the island is only three miles long and half a mile wide, it offers an amazingly diverse range of things to do. Its 4,000 years of turbulent history comes to life through the forty-two scheduled monuments and listed buildings. Because of its isolation, the habitat for wildlife is often compared to that of the Galapagos.

We shall be sailing on MS Oldenburg for two hours to Lundy for puffin watching, walking and exploring (binoculars recommended). The Marisco Tavern on Lundy has substantial meals and light snacks.
