Day 1 After a taxi pick up from your home, we have a stop in Evesham before continuing to our hotel in Shropshire with time to freshen up before dinner.

Day 2 We travel to Ironbridge, an important centre of the industrial revolution and now a delightful town of tea rooms and antique shops. We also visit Blists Hill, a fascinating recreation of a Victorian town complete with staff in authentic costume.

Day 3 A short drive to Bridgnorth brings us to the Severn Valley Railway for a return steam train journey to Kidderminster. We break our journey in Highley with a visit to the Engine House Visitor Centre, where you might like to get some lunch. Reboard the train and visit Kidderminster, before returning to Bridgnorth, a town divided in two and linked by a remarkable cliff railway. Finally we return to our hotel by coach.

Day 4 Today we travel to Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, which brings together Saxon gold, Egyptian mummies and masterpieces by British and European painters. We have an included ‘Treasures of the Museum’ tour followed by a cup of tea in the Edwardian Tearoom. In the afternoon we visit Cadbury World, to experience a fascinating guided tour of Bourneville and time to discover the Cadbury story and enjoy a cream tea.

Day 5 Leaving our hotel after breakfast we travel south with a stop in Cheltenham, before continuing to home, meeting our taxis late afternoon.
