Day 1 Morning departure for the journey to Shropshire arriving late afternoon at the hotel for a four night stay.
Day 2 Today’s excursion takes you to the impressive Ironbridge Gorge before continuing onto Blists Hill Victorian Town. This 52 acre open air museum is a bustling recreation of a Victorian town. Discover what life was like for a housewife, buy curious products in the chemist, grocers and drapers or enjoy a drink in the New Inn.
Day 3 Your visit today takes you to ‘where Shropshire meets Wales’, the vibrant market town of Oswestry where you can hear Welsh and English voices mingling side by side in the recently voted ‘coolest place to live in England’. On to Shrewsbury, packed with timber framed black and white buildings amongst narrow alleyways surrounded by the River Severn.
