Leaning Tower April Fool but the Wales trip was genuine!

Hi All,

While we are definitely planning a summer meetup trip to our home country of Wales, the Leaning Tower of Wales email was an April Fool's Day joke .  There isn't an c18th leaning tower near Cardiff that is even better than the one in Pisa. Most of you got the joke - I think the fact that we said it had only being leaning for the past few years made you all suspicious. It was a photo-shopped image of the historic Cardiff City Hall.

However, we are planning a meetup to Cardiff, the capital city of Wales.  As I'm from near Cardiff, we should be able to ensure we cover all the best sites.

It will probably be an overnight stay sometime in July - it's only a two hour train journey from London. We know some very reasonably priced accommodation where we could make a block booking for our group if enough people are interested. 

We'll also be looking to arrange a guided tour given privately for our group and a night out at one of Cardiff's best Bars/Nighclubs. I know I'm biased as I'm from Wales, but it really is a beautiful country. It should be a great trip - and we'll even teach you some Welsh language phrases so you can impress the locals. We'll be trying to arrange this at a a very reasonable price - certainly in comparison to the commercial trips you find on the Internet.

We'll update you with further details ASAP.
