Heart of Wales by Rail via Shrewsbury - Day 5

Friday - the final day of the tour. Our itinerary today is to spend the morning in Llandeilo and then catch the 15.34 train back to Shrewsbury - 18.28 arrival. If you need to return earlier, there is a five hour gap between trains so take the 10.32 service which will reach Shrewsbury at 13.33. Alternatively, there is a 13.15 train to Swansea (arrives 14.20) where a connection will get you to Cardiff or London Paddington.

 

Morning

Dinefwr Castle, a mediaeval castle of Welsh princes, remains of Roman forts, and Newton House, a mid-seventeenth century mansion all set in glorious parkland - plus a National Nature Reserve. Not too far to walk and too good to miss! The Castle, Park and Newtown House are normally open from 10 am.
 

Lunch

Dinefwr has a tea room and you can have lunch in the Billiard Room restaurant at Newton House - or back into town.
 

Afternoon

Collect your luggage and head back to the railway station in time to catch the 15.34 Shrewsbury train. We call at Llandovery at 15.55, Llanwrtyd 16.20, Llandrindod 16.57, Knighton 17.36 and Craven Arms at 18.00; arrival at Shrewsbury will be at 18.28.

Llandeilo railway station is on the Heart of Wales Line that runs from Shrewsbury to Swansea.
