Where will you start your pilgrimage?

Working with churches, Blue Badge Guides and tourism providers we have created a brand new range of unique ‘experiences’. We have something for everyone regardless of age, interest, budget or reason for travelling.

You do not need to be bringing a faith group; families, students, independent travellers and special interest groups will all enjoy what we have to offer.

Once you have registered online you can search ‘experiences’ by theme or geography. You can add favourites and create wish lists, which can then be shared with clients.

Discover our experiences

There is something for everyone, from a family to a group, young or old, heritage hounds or outdoor adventurers. You will experience the best of Wales, on or off the beaten track.

They include exploring history, discovering architecture, indulging in extravagant afternoon teas and absorbing the atmosphere of our sacred heritage. Put yourself in the picture where your favourite movies and television were filmed, meet your literary heroes and stand on the spot where history happened. Set off on an adventure, discovering ancient church by bike or even sea kayak.
