STROLLS AND STORIES launches their new season of walks and stories!

Join us on 17-18 March for our premier event…

THE HEALING WATERS OF LLANDRINDOD WELLS – MID WALES

A WEEKEND VICTORIAN to MODERN DAY SPA EXPERIENCE!

See and hear how the Victorians flocked to LLandrindod to bathe and partake of its waters. Then enjoy yourself in your own up-to-date Spa at the 4-star Metropole Hotel.

This weekend experience includes two walking and storytelling days (Saturday and Sunday), one night’s bed and breakfast at the Metropole Hotel and Spa with its swimming pool and gym, a three-course dinner on Saturday night, and Sunday breakfast. Any drinks purchased with the three-course meal are the responsibility of attendees.



WEEKEND AGENDA:

SATURDAY: A pre-lunch storytelling walk and a post-lunch storytelling walk, each of about 2 miles. Both walks are graded easy.

10.30am to 4.00pm The Victorian Spa town of Llandrindod – healing Springs, amazing trees, Victorian architecture, and the railway that contributed to Llandrindods success. The lake, lovers leap and the mystery of the stone circle that was or wasn’t!

We’ll stop in town for lunch (lunch not provided as part of our weekend package or day-walker tickets).

Hear stories that give you an insight into the Spa experience that the Victorians loved, but was it the same for their servants? Are these springs really healing?

Listen to how Victorian strict morals resulted in torment and even death for two lovers.

Enjoy a swim and relax in the Metropole's Spa facilities. (Please note, if you wish to book a spa treatment at an additional cost to yourself, you should do so directly with the Hotel's Spa.)

7.30pm Enjoy a 3-course meal at the Metropole. This meal is included as part of our weekend package.

SUNDAY: An easy to moderate, 4-mile storytelling walk, in the countryside around Llandrindod. Beginning at 10.30am and concluding at about 3.30pm

Beacon Hill (355m), Shaky Bridge, the isolated and lost town of Cefnllys with its remaining church and site of the old Castle. Stunning views and ancient history.

See where lovers pledged their troth, and hear why the bridge isn’t shaky anymore! See where the medieval ruler Einon had one of his fortified dwellings, and experience the calm of Cefnllys church and its ancient history…. was St. Michael really here in days gone by?

A picnic lunch may be bought in town or at the hotel at an additional cost.
