Join us in South Wales

Senators are invited to make another modern day pilgrimage to St Davids in the spring of 2017 to experience the spectacular scenery, wild life and the rich colours of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

St Davids, the smallest city in Britain, is located at the extreme South West tip of Wales. Its a place of legend and mysticism, where Christianity rubs shoulders with much older religions and the pace of life is such that there is no word in the Welsh language to convey the urgency of “maniana”!

Following an informal get together Friday evening, Saturday will include a cliff walk, lunch at the wonderful Lower Treginnis Farm for City Children (see www.farmsforcitychildren), and a chance to explore the newly opened Lifeboat Station. There will also be time to visit the famous Cathedral followed by afternoon tea and our usual formal Senate Dinner. There will be an opportunity to enjoy an exciting boat trip on Sunday morning followed by lunch before you commence your return journey.
You will also have the chance to hear about local sea captains, piracy and smuggling, “Poldark” style copper mining and Royal liaisons.

The whole event will be based at The St Davids Cross Hotel accommodation  is available for £100 per person based on 2 people sharing twin/douible room.
Prices for single accommodation will be supplied on request.
Thursday night accommodation from £50pp.
The weekend cost will be £100 per person including Dinner on Friday with wine, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner with wine on Saturday, and lunch on Sunday, based on 2 people sharing.
There will be an additional cost for the optional boat trip on Sunday.

For those who would like to extend their visit, on Friday, there could be a guided tour of the Preseli Hills (source of the Stonehenge blue stones), the mysterious Gwaun Valley where Pagan customs still survive, and one or two special hostelries on the way. The price is £35pp and this includes lunch.

It is possible to make the journey to West Wales by train to Haverfordwest. We will pleased to arrange transport onwards to St Davids on request.
