Rock Weekend: Led Zeppelin Trail

Over the Hills and Far Away …

A fantastic journey of discovery for all Led Zep fans, through the West Country, Wales and the English Midlands. This is a wonderful opportunity of seeing some pretty and historic parts of England and Wales while indulging our passion for the World’s Greatest Rock Band!

 

 

SUGGESTED ITINERARY FOR PRIVATE DEPARTURES

If you have 2 or 3 days, then you can have a nice adventure around West London, Reading, Windsor and South Wales OR The Midland of Plant & Bonham. To include both Wales and the Midland/Birmingham area, then we recommend at least 3 or even 4 days. If you want to include all of these place and also North Wales, Bron Yr Aur etc, then a week is strong recommended for comfort’s sake, but obviously you could spend longer to really soak in the Welsh countryside!
