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.)

Joining your holiday

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

KATRINA

Darlington. Couple
A thoroughly enjoyable trip which was well planned to visit each town and provide the maximum time to visit and enjoy the sites. Our coach driver and tour manager (Wendy) were excellent offering a first class service.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visits and just wish we had a few more days there as it is a beautiful part of England.
The hotel was attached to Telford Football Club and out on a limb but was very clean, well equipped and the food we were served was delicious.
The only negative point I would make is the fact that there was nothing to do on an evening. Once dinner was over, apart from having a walk around an industrial estate there was nothing close by.
