Day One

Day Two

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.
