We return to Ludlow and the gorgeous Feathers Hotel. Explore the town’s medieval streets, ruined castle, and stroll among over 500 listed buildings. We also visit Hereford, Shrewsbury and travel back in time at Blists Hill.
Day 1 A taxi from your door takes you to your tour coach, which travels across country, making suitable refreshment stops, reaching our hotel in Ludlow in the afternoon.
Day 2 A full day to enjoy Ludlow. Alternatively, join your driver on a half day excursion to Hereford, where you might like to view the cathedral, which houses international treasures including the famous Mappa Mundi and the largest surviving medieval chained library.
Day 3 Our day in Shrewsbury includes a 45-minute cruise on board Sabrina as she sails around the picturesque River Severn Loop. After an included sandwich lunch, we have a guided tour of Shrewsbury Cathedral. Our day ends with free time in town before we return to our hotel.
Day 4 We visit Ironbridge, a delightful town of tearooms, antique shops and the iconic bridge. We also explore Blists Hill, a fascinating recreation of a Victorian town complete with staff in authentic costume.
Day 5 Leaving our hotel after breakfast, we make our way to Burford for time to shop, eat and sightsee, before continuing homewards, reaching the local area late afternoon.
Reopened after extensive refurbishment and a change of ownership, our historic hotel is situated in the picturesque market town of Ludlow. The Feathers Hotel offers the atmosphere of a 17th century coaching inn with the facilities of a modern hotel. Bedrooms have TV, telephone, WiFi, hairdryer and hospitality tray. The hotel has a lift, but as an historic building some steps are necessary within.
