Cardiff canals coal and countryTour ID: 68
Although this sounds a mouthful it is digestible in a day. We have a lot of fun galloping through the history and best sites in Cardiff and in the surrounding countryside.
You will be amazed about to hear about the influence of the Bute family in this area - their fingers were in almost every aspect of the title of this tour.
We will look at Norman castles and neomediaeval interiors in Cardiff, walk along the paths taken by bargees and horses to bring the root of Cardiff wealth - coal- to the docks for export. We will make time to see how the wonderful welsh landscape is reasserting itself now that waterways are clean again.
