Wales - Pembrokeshire Coast
The Wayfarers

Wales - Pembrokeshire Coast

Poetry and motion are the key words for this new Welsh walk that blends literature and landscape in a novel format.

After days of varied but always breathtaking scenery on parts of the 186-mile Pembrokeshire coast path we dine with Gillian Clarke, the Welsh Poet Laureate whose award-winning works have been inspired by local land and seascapes.

The coast path offers great variety from rugged cliff tops to sheltered coves, spacious beaches and lazy estuaries, while the hand of Man is evident in a 5000-year-old New Stone Age cromlech and, in contrast, the national cathedral of Wales in St Davids.

Literary associations continue with a final-day visit to Dylan Thomas' boathouse on the Teifi Estuary.
