It's long been said that the beautiful Tredegar House nr Newport Wales, a National Trust property may or may not have hosted the most famous of Welsh pirate buccaneers, Captain Morgan, but what we do know is that they made Perilous Pete , The Scourge of the Severn  very welcome the last weekend of May as part of their Pirate weekend!  With threee days of pirate antics, trails, quizzes, stories, tours, pirate tests and a jolly good soaking, hundreds of new pirates signed up for Perilous Petes' next cruise! 

“ Perilous Pete was just fabulous, the effect on the children and adults was fantastic, they all bought ionto the character and they all so wanted to sign up as pirates “
