Shakespeare Express

Overnight with dinner, bed and breakfast.

Explore the backwaters of Birmingham by canal boat and take the Shakespeare Express train journey to Stratford.

Did you know that Birmingham has more miles of canals than Venice! We travel to England's' second city and its very heart to enjoy a Canal Trip on Worcester and Birmingham Canal. The very next day enjoy a steam train journey from the iconic Snow Hill station to Stratford Upon Avon by our romantically hauled steam train.

• DAY ONE

Depart from your home area travelling to Birmingham and the Gaslight Basin for our afternoon canal cruise on the Worcester and Birmingham canal. There is also ample opportunity to browse the wealth of historical features of the area or maybe some shopping in The Mailbox. This is Peaky Blinder country! Afterwards settle into our comfortable hotel and enjoy our evening meal.

• DAY TWO

After breakfast we make our way to Snow Hill station where we will find our train gently purring before it gathers all its energy to steam us through the countryside to Stratford Upon Avon. Home to William Shakespeare we will have free time to amble around before our journey home.
