Healing Waters of Wales

Healing Waters of Wales

Revitalise the senses, from the sea at Aberystwyth to the healing waters of Llandrindod Wells on this tour that travels through the Elan Valley and includes a canal boat cruise through the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park.

Healing Waters of Wales


Beneficial effects of ‘taking the waters’ were known to the Romans,

 yet it was the arrival of railways in Victorian times

 that boosted the popularity of spa towns like Llandrindod Wells,

 bringing the masses from as far afield as Manchester to sample this elixir of life.


Capable of epic feats of engineering,

the Victorians also designed the incredible aqueducts

 and dams of the Elan Valley as a means of supplying Birmingham

with fresh drinking water,

creating a safe-haven for wildlife in the process,

thanks to careful management of this living landscape.


Conservation measures at Gigrin Farm attract a shower of visitors

and breath-taking feats of aerial piracy at feeding time

at the Red Kite Feeding Centre,

 while the Brecon Beacons National Park glides by on a canal cruise

 through some of the most beautiful scenery in Britain.


Add time by the sea at Aberystwyth and experience for yourself

 the restorative power of the sparkling waters of Wales.
