Departing: April - October 2017
* Price shown: 13 October 2017 from - - UJS

Breathtaking unspoilt beauty

Discover some of Britain's finest countryside on this enchanting break. Take a tour through the lush hills, rolling farmland and half-timbered towns of beautiful and historic Shropshire, and discover lovely Ludlow and medieval Shrewsbury on what promises to be a really special weekend.

Tour Highlights And Inclusions

  • Time to explore Ludlow, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury
  • A visit to the Ironbridge Gorge
  • Coach travel throughout
  • Two nights' dinner, bed and English breakfast accommodation in a three-star standard hotel in the West Midlands area
  • The services of a friendly Tour Manager

Single rooms are available for a supplement


Day One

Leaving the local area, this morning we'll head to Bridgnorth, where a funicular railway connects the High Town and the Low Town. Explore, and take in the spectacular views from the High Town, which Charles I described as "the finest in my domain", before we continue to our hotel for dinner.

Day Two

Today we'll travel through the sleepy Shropshire scenery to Ironbridge. Despite its reputation as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and the soaring arches of its famous bridge, Ironbridge is a pretty market town surrounded by lovely woodlands that run along Ironbridge Gorge.

Our second stop is Ludlow. Discover the town's magnificent Tudor and Georgian architecture, cobbled streets and market; visit St Laurence's Church; and perhaps explore the castle before we return to to hotel for dinner.

Day Three

This morning we'll head to Shrewsbury. Take a trip along the river, stroll around beautiful Quarry Park - designed by the late Percy Thrower - or visit Shrewsbury Abbey, home of fictional medieval detective Brother Cadfael.

We'll leave Shrewsbury in the afternoon, arriving back in the local area by mid evening.

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible.

Good that we a reasonable pickup time 9.45. Destinations we had wanted to see, made better it being organised. Hotel clean and modern, food very good, room spacious. Down side our room was on ground floor near doors, could hear people coming in late at night. Also hotel close to main road and constant traffic could not have window open. I dread to think what it is like in summer as there did not seem to be any air-conditioning.

Huddersfield Single traveller
An enjoyable weekend, but there were two separate intenaries which was confusing. A decision was made by majority vote to visit Much Wenlock instead of Church Stretton which was ok.
The problem on Saturday was that when we were dropped off at Ironbridge for our last visit of the day. As time constraints and tiredness made it was impossible to walk over a mile to visit any of the museums in the area it would have been better to either drive past the bridge for a viewing or return to the hotel.

Alternatively just visit Blists Hill for a half day visit.

York Couple
We had a lovely trip to Shropshire. Plenty of time to look around the various towns that we visited. Well planned. None of the annoying unscheduled stops at mills/garden centres etc. that other coach tours often do. Everything about the hotel was very good - nice room, good food, pleasant staff. Only thing we didn't like was 6am start. as the first pick-up it means a very long time sitting on the coach before reaching our destination.
