During your stay, be sure to get out and about to take in some of the abundant history, heritage and stunning scenery of the surrounding area.
History & Heritage
Caerleon was one of the most important military sites in Britain under the Roman Empire.
Today, this is brought to life at the imaginatively displayed Fortress Baths and Roman Legionary Museum, and the amphitheatre, scene of bloodthirsty entertainment and according to legend, the site of King Arthur’s Round Table.
Despite the shell of this grand structure being open to the skies, it remains the best-preserved medieval abbey in Wales set in the heart of the beautiful Wye Valley, an internationally recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
St Fagans is one of Europe’s leading open–air museums and Wales’s most popular heritage attraction. The Museum stands in the grounds of St Fagans Castle and gardens, a late 16th century manor house donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth in 1948.
A peaceful oasis on the outskirts of Cardiff, Dyffryn Gardens covers more than 55 acres. Discover intimate garden rooms including the Pompeiian garden, Paved Court, Reflecting Pool and Mediterranean garden. The enormous great lawn is bordered by seasonal bedding and a croquet lawn.
There is also a large glasshouse, statuary collection, and arboretum featuring trees from all over the world as well as the Log Stack play area which is great for kids and adults alike.
A place shaped by the local community, Tredegar House and its surrounding gardens and parkland stand proudly at the heart of Newport’s heritage.
