This stunning journey takes us over two quite different and spectacular routes through the very heart of Wales. The ‘Midland Pullman’ travels through mile after mile of glorious rolling hills and rugged mountains with the beautiful Brecon Beacons towering above.

We pass the elegant Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells following which our train continues over the rarely used scenic and unexplored heart of Wales line to Cardiff where there will be a sightseeing break of around three hours.

Our train tackles the taxing climb into the mountains and over Sugar Loaf summit, then through the picturesque South Wales valleys towards Swansea and onward to the Welsh Capital of Cardiff where there will be time for sightseeing or a little retail therapy before we return over the beautiful Welsh Marches route, renowned for its breathtaking scenery we pass through historic Hereford, Leominster and Shrewsbury.
