COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY

DAY 1 Travel to Shropshire, stopping in Warwick for lunch to be purchased. Arrive at the hotel with time to freshen up before our evening meal.

DAY 2 After breakfast visit Shrewsbury for the day. The town centre here is packed with timber-framed black & white buildings, steep narrow streets and cobbled alleyways. There are lots of interesting independent shops here, as well as all the eateries and restaurants. Return to the hotel later for our evening meal.

DAY 3 After breakfast visit the Ironbridge Gorge and the Museum of the Gorge. See detail of a 12-metre model and catch a film explaining how this area became the most industrious place in the world. Afterwards head to the open air Blists Hill Victorian Town, on the site of the former coal mine, re-creates life in the gorge in the 19th century. Experience what life was like when Britain ruled the world. Meet some (almost) real Victorians in their authentic shops and cottages, buy curious goods from a bygone era and watch tradespeople in action in their atmospheric workshops and factories. Ditch modern money in favour of some Pounds, Shillings and Pence. Check out the weird Victorian remedies at the Pharmacy. Discover why you wouldn’t want to be caught with green candles at home! We won’t go hungry at the village either as there are many options for lunch to be purchased. We return to the hotel later for our evening meal.

DAY 4 After breakfast spend time in Ludlow, described by John Betjeman as “the loveliest town in England” and by Country Life as “the most vibrant small town in the Country”. With over 500 listed buildings, mainly Georgian or half-timbered, Ludlow is a feast for the eyes. Afterwards head to Much Wenlock, a town in miniature, filled with black & white houses, friendly traditional pubs and a good range of individual shops. We arrive back at the hotel in time to relax before our evening meal.

DAY 5 After breakfast return to home area with suitable comfort stops, including a stop in Stratford upon Avon for lunch to be purchased.
