Join us for a relaxing winter break to Herefordshire and escape the January blues with Warner’s wide range of activities and entertainment. We have included three half day excursions to Hereford, Ledbury and Ludlow.
Day 1 We pick you up from your door by taxi, then our coach will travel west and cross the magnificent Severn Bridge into Wales. We continue up the Wye Valley to our Warner hotel near Hereford.
Day 2 This morning is spent in the historic walled city of Hereford, where you can stroll through the streets, shop or visit the cathedral – home to the famous Mappa Mundi and the world’s largest chained library. The afternoon is free in Hereford or at Holme Lacy.
Day 3 Our morning excursion is to Ludlow, a thriving medieval market town, home to an 11th-century castle and plenty of pleasant tea shops. Our afternoon is free at Holme Lacy.
Day 4 A visit to Ledbury where you will have free time to explore one of the finest black and white towns in the country, with cobbled streets and picturesque half-timbered houses. The afternoon is free at Holme Lacy.
Day 5 Departing after breakfast, we travel back with a stop in Cheltenham for lunch and arrive in the local area late afternoon.
