Bay is delighted to team up with TP Tourism to bring you membership to an exclusive travel club solely for Bay readers. We will in coming months offer day trips, weekend and mid-week breaks. To start us off Tina Price of TP Tourism has organised a fully escorted perfect day out on Wednesday 20th June 2018 – an ideal Father’s Day gift.
Your day out starts with a tour of the Royal Mint Experience, including the chance to strike your own coin, and an opportunity to look around the museum. Here you will learn the history of coinage and get to see the mint in action, producing the coins that will eventually end up in our purses and pockets. Then it’s a short coach ride to Llanerch Vineyard where you will be greeted with a glass of Cariad sparkling wine followed by a tutored wine tasting.
You can then enjoy a fabulous 3 course lunch at Calon Lodge. Later there will be an opportunity for a self-guided vineyard tour for those who want to explore.
