Join us on this weekend break based in Shropshire, known as the birth place of the Industrial Revolution and located on the Welsh border. Full of Medieval towns such as Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Much Wenlock it is a destination that is steeped with history and unique landscapes.
Friday – This morning we collect you from your local pick-up point travelling to the Welsh Borderlands. We take a break in medieval Ludlow, one of England’s finest surviving medieval towns, set in a wooded bend on the River Teme, around a magnificent castle. Some of Britain’s best-preserved Tudor, Elizabethan and Georgian architecture is here with over 500 listed buildings. In the afternoon we continue north into Shropshire and our hotel, the Telford Whitehouse Hotel.
Saturday – After departing the hotel this morning we begin our day with a scenic drive through lovely scenery to Ironbridge and Much Wenlock before heading north to historic Shrewsbury. The town is full of timber framed black and white buildings amongst narrow alleyways surrounded by the River Severn. We will have the chance to take some lunch while in Shrewsbury as well as enjoying a river cruise on the River Severn.
Sunday –Our excursion today takes us to the Welshpool and Llanfair Railway. This line, formerly part of the old Great Western Railway, passes through delightful scenery on the way to Llanfair Caereinion. We will have a break here before we catch the return train, after our return journey we will board the coach and drive to the pleasant market town of Church Stretton before returning to the hotel.
Monday – After breakfast we will leave Telford and begin the journey back to Wiltshire, making suitable comfort spots en-route.
