The Gower Peninsula

Date: 

Friday, June 7, 2019 to Sunday, June 9, 2019

Description

  To purchase a ticket for this trip, please come along to one of our designated sign-up sessions in the Guild of Students. (See our newsletter) Please be aware the times indicated on Eventbrite are just a rough estimate.

 For our final trip of the year, the Wayfarer's are hitting up the Gower Peninsula in South Wales for a weekend of walking, beaches and camping (please note that this means we will be staying in tents). 

 The Gower Peninsula was the first place in the UK to be named an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it really does live up to its name. It is also the location of the oldest buried human remains found in Britain: The bones of the Red Lady (actually Lad) of Paviland were found in 1832 and are about 34,000 years old!

Please come along for what should be a stunning weekend and celebrate the end of term with us!

What to bring:

  • Sturdy, comfortable walking shoes (that you don't mind getting muddy)
  • Lightweight trousers (definitely not jeans!)
  • Jumper and/or other layers
  • Waterproof coat and trousers
  • Packed lunch and water for both days of walking
  • Cash for emergencies
  • A rucksack to carry it all in
  • Extra clothes for both days of walking
