Awarding-winning bus based Real Ale Trail Event to hit The Vale of Glamorgan on 21st April 2018!

It’s happening we are coming to The Vale this April 2018 and have found some very interesting pubs with over 20 outstanding Ales for you to experience on our one day buses based event.


Glamorgan in South Wales is full to the brim with some of the best pubs a real ale drinker could wish for, with its own breweries and a huge array of villages to drink in.

Sampling those pubs – and most importantly, that ale – presents your average real ale fan with one major problem: who’s going to do the driving?

Until now. The Real Ale Trail gives drinkers the opportunity to sample up to 7 fantastic pubs in one day without having to worry who’s going to ferry them between hostelries – and we are thrilled to confirm that it is coming to the Vale of Glamorgan after proving a huge hit in North Wales.

Hop on board!

Real Ale Trail buses pick up and drop off at each of the pubs on the trail every half an hour from 11am to 11pm, so dads looking for a fun day out with their mates after a busy week at work can enjoy a pint or two without worrying about driving home.

Great  Pubs and  Great  Real  Ale…

Each of the pubs has a unique atmosphere, a wide selection of ales and if you’re staying for the whole day – and why wouldn’t you? – finding something to eat won’t be a problem either.

Beers aside, the Trail gives drinkers the opportunity to sample some of the fantastic scenery, wonderful villages and crisp seaside the Vale has to offer.

You can start from any pub on the route at anytime. All you need to do is buy a ticket sold at the participating pubs or here online from the 1st March. (Please do not buy tickets from another vendors as they won’t be accepted on the Trail. )
