We will be in Bath for 4 days and wanted to spend one day in South Wales as a long day trip by train. Have made a first cut itinerary – is this do-able?
7:25 –Early train from Bath to Cardiff Central (breakfast on train)
8:46 - Walk 10 min to Cardiff Castle
9 – 10:45 - Cardiff Castle (incl 45 min of must-do tour of interiors that depart every 20 min from 10 am)
10:45-11.15 - Taxi (20min – availability? Cost?) / Bus(32 A from Central Station, 25 mins to St Fagans)
1115-1330 - St.Fagans (heard that parts of it are undergoing renovation? Hope it's still worth it?)
1330-1430 - Lunch (At Gwalia Tea Room, above Ironmongers)
1430-1520 – Journey to Tintern Abbey (preferred option -but how to go?), If not then Caerphilly Castle?
1530 – 1700 - Tintern Abbey or Caerphilly Castle
1700 – 1800 – Return to Cardiff (How?)
1830 – 1934 – Train to Bath (DO I need to go all the way to Cardiff to catch the train back or can I catch it somewhere mid way? If yes, can I still use the Day Return train tickets?)
We are 2 adults and 1 kid of 8.
