Glorious Gower 10th June 2017

Glorious Gower

Saturday 10th June

  

Today we are heading into West Wales The Glorious Gower Peninsula

We'll stop for lunch in Mumbles, probably the most famous of the

Gower villages and we'll see the famous Gower coastline

   

    

The coach will leave Bristol City Centre at 9.00 am, or you can board

the coach earlier at your local pick up point

   

The magic of the village never fails, whether you are travelling back home for the

thousandth time along Mumbles Road or seeing it all for the very first time.

  

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

We'll arrive back in Bristol around 7.30 pm

£21.95

Okehampton has a long history dating back to Iron Age. Baron Baldwin de Brionne , one of the knights of William the Conqueror,  built a castle and established the basis for the present town of Okehampton as an important trading and market centre throughout the centuries in this part of Devon. Baron de Brionne was William's Royal Sheriff of Devonshire, and his castle in Okehampton is the only Devon castle listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. The present castle, on the same site was rebuilt and considerably enlarged in the early 1300s by Earl Hugh Courtenay, of the powerful Courtenay family of the County. In 1539, its owner, the Marquis of Exeter, was executed by order of King Henry VIII, and it gradually fell into disuse from then onwards

There are many other places to visit in or Close to the Town Centre if you want to explore further, such as the town hall built as a private house in 1685, the Georgian White Hart Inn opposite the town hall, the Victorian Arcarde which is a covered shopping area or Museum of Dartmoor Life

If you want to venture further afield Okehampton castle is within walking distance of the town centre although now in ruins, the remaining walls and towers are still imposing and spectacular
