There's the great sweep of Swansea Bay and then, a huddle of small houses

cascades down a hill sharply to those two islets with their Victorian pier

  

   

Why is Mumbles so intoxicating? It's not just the string of seafront pubs along the famous

Mumbles Mile. It's also the way the bay acts as a giant mirror, amplifying the

opalescent  sunlight on a fine day, or making the sunlight shimmer

 

  

After lunch we'll head along the Gower to Rhossili, another equally

beautiful village where we will stop for afternoon tea

Ludlow 18th August 2018

Ludlow

Saturday 18th August

      

       

     

 

       

Ludlow and its beautiful castle are perched on a cliff above the picturesque River Teme

in south Shropshire, one of the most unspoiled parts of rural England

The town breathes history at every turn, but it's far too

lively to be a museum piece just yet

            

         

    

The town boasts over 500 listed buildings and is a long way

from the North South motorways, a claim almost unique

in the 21st century and one that makes it a very

special place retaining the rural charm

long ago lost to most towns

       

 

   

Ludlow has many 'claims to fame' including the most

Michelin star restuarants in any town outside of

London and one of the best towns to eat in

anywhere in the UK. Not for nothing did

John Betjeman describe Ludlow as

'The most perfect town in England'

      

 

We'll return home to Bristol, arriving around 7.30pm
