Day 1 We travel toward Shropshire, making suitable refreshment stops along the way, and arriving at our hotel late afternoon.

Day 2 A visit to Weston Park, where we have time to explore Weston House, home to a world class collection of fine and decorative arts, the Rose Patterson Art Gallery, the Formal Gardens that surround the House including the sunken Italian Gardens, the scented Rose Garden and Lady Anne’s Memorial Garden, all set in 1,000 acres of “Capability” Brown parkland. Lunch is available in the on-site restaurant. We return to our hotel mid-afternoon.

Day 3 This morning we visit Blists Hill, a fascinating re-creation of a Victorian town complete with staff in authentic costume. We also visit Ironbridge, a centre of the industrial revolution and now a delightful town of tearooms and antique shops.

Day 4 A short drive to Bridgnorth brings us to the Severn Valley Railway for a return heritage 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. We return to our hotel by coach.

Day 5 Leaving our hotel after breakfast we travel south via The Cotswolds, before continuing home.
