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.

Very good value. Was a bit concerned about the hotel when we arrived at a football ground but it was excellent. Staff were very courteous and helpful, friendly and attentive. A special thank you must go to Jordan who is the head receptionist. He was incredibly efficient and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. A real credit to the hotel.

The places visited were very interesting, but as the tour manager was new she was not able to give a lot in information re: the sights we were going to see.

Orpington Couple
Overall a very pleasant weekend. Neil the driver and Claire the tour manager were exceedingly friendly and helpful. The visit to Church Stretton was not long enough to see the town properly, but otherwise every trip was fine.

The feeder taxi from Orpington to Dartford via Lewisham and Bexleyheath took too long. Two hours travelling before boarding the coach. Obviously no consideration had been given in the planning for the volume of London traffic.

The return journey only took one hour.

Rochester Friends
The hotel was extremely good best I have ever stayed in in the last 10 years

The only problem with this tour was the length of time we had to spend in Ludlow.
Our time would have been better spent at Ironbridge stopping off at one of the museums
And then straight to Ludlow for just 2 hours.
