Day 3 - Elan Valley, the Vale of Rheidol Railway and Aberystwyth
We head into Elan Valley, an area known as the 'Welsh Lake
District' where several man-made lakes are connected by six dams.
The most impressive, Craig Goch, is built in the Birmingham Baroque
style, with elegantly curved walls and a series of narrow arches.
We enjoy a guided tour with a local ranger, discovering the
stunning architecture. We continue to Devil's Bridge, where we join
the steam-hauled Vale of Rheidol Railway for a scenic journey
through the Welsh valleys to Aberystwyth. We transfer to the
university for an insight into Welsh heritage, with an
'Introduction to Welsh Language' lesson. Aberystwyth University is
the perfect place to learn about the language; it's the school
where Prince Charles studied Welsh, and his time here featured in
Netflix's The Crown. You enjoy a little free time in Aberystwyth;
perhaps take a stroll down the traditional seafront.
