This morning we travel to Worcester for the 24th Victorian Christmas Fayre. The city's historic streets will be filled with stalls selling festive food, unusual Christmas decorations and carefully crafted gifts, each manned by a stallholder in Victorian costume.

Browse the stalls, then return to the coach for a drive through the rolling Cotswolds countryside to the pretty village of Broadway, before we head to your hotel for dinner.

After breakfast, we'll head to Stratford-upon-Avon. Explore this lovely medieval market town, most famous as the birthplace and home of William Shakespeare, and perhaps head to the canal to wander the food and craft stalls of the weekly 'Upmarket'.

In the mid afternoon we'll begin our journey home, arriving back at your pick-up point in the mid to late evening.

Stockport Couple
Late start, more time wasted going to Knutsford to change from the feeder coach. Then straight to hotel, 1st day wasted, not to mention the rubbish food on the first evening meal, thought I?did had my last school dinner years ago!! Improved slightly after that but it was still a very disappointing weekend.

The first day of the trip was completely wasted, spending hours travelling and waiting to arrive at a hotel which was near to nothing.
The hotel room was clean but had no heating and the temperatures were freezing.
The meal on the first evening was appalling - food ran out and vegetables had been placed on the buffet direct from the kitchen fridge stone cold.

The visit to Broadway lasted 15 minutes.
The trip to Stratford was fine on the second day of the trip.

The tour manager was ill prepared and only challenged the atrocious service at the Holiday Inn Express at Birmingham Airport when the trip members complained themselves to th hotel staff
