Shropshire and the Welsh Borders
October 11 - October 14£239
Day 1 Travelling towards Telford we make our way to the old riverside market town of Evesham which is situated in the centre of the famous horticultural Vale of Evesham – the fruit and vegetable basket of England. From the tranquil banks of the river Avon to the undulating hills and peaceful wooded slopes of the Cotswolds, the Vale offers some of the prettiest countryside in the United Kingdom.
Day 2 We head off for our trip on the Severn Valley Railway for our journey on a full sized standard-gauge steam railway journey. The journey is full of interest. One highlight of the trip is the crossing of the River Severn by means of the Victorian Bridge 200 foot above the water and features in the film “The Thirty-Nine Steps” The scenery is varied and largely unspoilt, punctuated by the quaint ‘olde worlde’ charm of country stations. From here we make our way to Ironbridge Gorge for a short stop.
Day 3 We take a scenic drive through the Shropshire countryside to Llangollen with time to have look around this beautiful area before a boat trip over the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.
Day 4 After breakfast we make our way to the glorious town of Worcester, nestled in a golden valley with a selection of hidden gems. There is an undiscovered magic to this lovely town that will keep you guessing as to why you never explored it sooner. Arriving home late afternoon.
