Travel to South Wales for some rugby, touch rugby on the beach, surfing lessons and the nightlife of student-filled Swansea town centre
Friday: Arrival at the hotel in Mumbles
One of our representatives will meet your touring group at your club/school on Friday afternoon at a pre-arranged time and will transfer you by luxury coach to Mumbles, where you will spend 2 nights in a hotel of your choice on a bed & breakfast basis.
Mumbles, a lovely coastal resort on the Gower Peninsular, is the ideal destination for a rugby tour. The area is famed for its rugby, the beach is renowned as Wales’ premier surfing location and provides a free training and entertainment space, and you’ll be staying 15 minutes away from Swansea, which has been voted as having the best student nightlife in the UK. For younger age groups, there is a Mumble Mile pub-crawl for parents.
Saturday: Match vs. Local Rugby Club and Tour Dinner
After breakfast you will be able to do some light training on the beach before being transferred to one of the local clubs for rugby matches. Lunch will be provided at the club. Afterwards you will be able to watch a First XV game at the local club or return to the beach by the hotels for surfing lessons and a warm-down in the sea.
In the evening there will be a tour dinner provided at a pre-arranged restaurant in Mumbles. Afterwards depending on the age group, you will be able to go out into town. For parents, the Mumbles Mile is recommended for its wide selection of pubs. For students and older age groups the Mumbles Mile pub-crawl is great fun and we would recommend getting taxis into Swansea (only about £2 per person), where there is a wide selection of clubs and bars full of locals and students from its two universities every night of the week.
Sunday: Match vs. Local Rugby Club and Other Activities
After a hearty full-English breakfast you can go down to the beach for some light training before a match against one of the local rugby clubs in The Valleys. Lunch will be provided at the club. In the afternoon you will be taken to visit Cardiff and the Millennium Stadium before returning by coach home.
Alternatively, for older age groups, to reduce any physical strain on players, there will be no game today. The morning can be spent playing touch rugby on the beach, having a surfing lesson or just relaxing and recovering from the previous evening. In the afternoon you can either visit Cardiff or “The Big Pit”, a coal mining museum and mine.
