Itinerary

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.

Further Information

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Walking in Shropshire

Very poor. We were supposed to see Ludlow , 2hrs Bridgenorth, 1 hr,Shrewsbury 2 hrs and Much Wenlock 1 hr and Ironbridge 1 hr. The times refers to the amount of time allocated at each place.
Not really enough time to showplace the area.

ED

Burton on Trent Couple
We were let down from the outset by the coach being an hour late. This was caused by the tour manager allowing two passengers on who were travelling to Beamish. We then ran into problems on the motorway, and the driver watching his tacho, which could have been avoided causing an early arrival at a hotel stuck in an airport miles from anywhere. We were given a silly amount of time to explore Ludlow and Bridgenorth and far too long in Shrewsbury while the Manager had her Sunday lunch. This tour needs to be carried out by a Newmarket official and not designed on a laptop. It could be quite enjoyable then

JOHN

Stockton on Tees Couple
Hotel too far from excursion destinations,spent far too long on motor ways.Dinners at hotel were cold and repetative,our room had a boarded up window. Because of the amount of time spent on coach 2 hrs was the absolute maximum time allowed at any of the destinations,arrived in Shrewsbury sunday morning at 10 15am most places were closed till 11.30am. It was the most unrelaxing break we have ever had.All that and not including breaking down on the motorway on our way home,climbing over barrier to get off the hard shoulder and if not for the help of a very concerned policeman we may have been there much longer.
