Your Itinerary

Day One

Leaving your pick-up point, early this morning we'll head to the historic market town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Discover its many Shakespearian associations - his Birthplace, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and his grave at Holy Trinity Church. Explore the shops or the weekend craft market, stroll along the river, and perhaps enjoy an early evening meal before we head to our hotel.

Day Two

After breakfast we'll travel to the 'black and white' market town of Ludlow for the highlight of our weekend - the Medieval Christmas Fayre.

Behind the castle walls you'll find a festive scene that will transport you back into the Middle Ages. Jesters, minstrels, pipers and story-tellers provide entertainment for all ages. Historical re-enactments, have-a-go archery and falconry displays add to the atmosphere, and the market stalls offer up Christmas gift ideas from medieval-themed crafts to jewellery and leather goods.

Sample festive fare, and explore the winding cobbled streets of the town itself, before we begin our journey home in the mid afternoon, arriving back at your original pick-up point by mid-to-late evening.
