10 Awesome Things To Do In The South Wales Valleys… PART TWO

Well here we are…part two of the blog you have all been waiting for 😛 ! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and ate far too much and drank responsibility… naturally.

We had a brilliant time at the Taffi Campers HQ, with not a single sprout in sight (Helen heaves a huge sigh of relief). We had some exciting updates on our next campervan baby who is due to be parked at a campsite near you in May! Wahay!  And we have planned ourselves a little trip on one of Visit Wales’ NEW The Wales Way routes.  We will let you know a bit more about this next time.

Enough of my rambling on… here is part two, enjoy!

If you missed part one click HERE to read it.

(Also, it goes without saying that if anyone has any tips for us we are always on the look out. Drop us a comment below. Equally if there is anything you want us to write about, let us know)

6. Dare yourself with Taff Valley Quad Biking and Activity Centre
Taff Valley is the place to go if quad biking, archery, clay pigeon shooting or gorge walking is your thing. You are sure to have an epic day filled to the brim with exhilarating activities. Enough to keep any kid, or big kid, entertained for hours!

7. Educate yourself at Big Pit National Coal Museum
A visit to Big Pit is quite special as it’s a real coal mine and one of Britain’s leading mining museums. All tours are run by old miners who will tell you everything you could ever want to know about what used to be the heart of Welsh industry.

8. Check out the impressive Caerphilly Castle
Dominating an incredible 30 acre site, Caerphilly Castle is Wales’ largest (and Britain’s second largest castle behind Windsor.) It was built in the 13th Century and is surrounded by a moat. The perfect example of a classic Welsh Castle, ready for you to explore.

9. Sip on a dram at the Penderyn Whisky Distillery
Check out the Penderyn Whisky Distillery and sample some of their delicious award winning single malts set in the picturesque foothills of the magnificent Brecon Beacons in South Wales. The perfect way to start off you “Welsh Experience”.

10. Learn about our history at Cyfarthfa Castle
Get yourselves down to Visit Cyfarthfa Castle.  Built in 1824 and once home to the Ironmaster William Crawshay,  who (some might say ruthlessly) controlled the town and all the people living it in. The castle is now a museum and gallery where a fantastic collection of artefacts spanning 2000 years of Merthyr’s history can be seen.

We know you’ve been lured in now and we can’t wait to meet you all when you pop by for a visit. Be sure to take Wil or Mogs, our campers, on one of your adventures so they can show you the best routes to take.

That’s all from us, for now.

Lots of festive love and see you next year!

Team Taffi
