Take time to wander down to the Quarry Park and discover the garden created by Percy Thrower. In the afternoon we have included a 45 minute cruise on the River Severn followed by a cream tea.

Day 3 Today travel to Bridgnorth, a fascinating Victorian town on two levels, connected by the UK’s oldest and steepest funicular railway. Continue on to Blists Hill Victorian town, one of the attractions around Ironbridge, birthplace of the industrial revolution.

Day 4 Enjoy the stunning beautiful scenery of the Shropshire Hills, stopping first in Church Stretton for a short while before continuing to the ancient town of Ludlow. The town boasts an impressive castle, delightful narrow lanes and interesting shops.
