Day 1: We will make our way to Hereford and our hotel arriving in time to freshen up before dinner.
Day 2: This morning we make the short journey to the city of Hereford. The city has the relaxed atmosphere of a country market town and visitors delight in the harmony of a rich heritage along with modern facilities. The Cathedral houses the award winning Mappa Mundi centre where you will find the world famous map plus the two most extensive Chained Libraries in existence. Opposite the Cathedral is the Hereford Museum and Art Gallery, housed in a spectacular Victorian gothic building or you may wish to spend an hour or so in the Black and White House Museum in High Town to take a step back into 17th century Herefordshire, giving an insight into daily life in Jacobean times. With independent shopping outlets sitting alongside well- known high street names, there is shopping for all in the traffic-free city centre there is so much to see and do in this delightful city.
Day 3: After breakfast we board our coach and make our way to Ledbury, one of the finest black and white towns in the country. Big enough to be bustling and vibrant, but small enough to keep a strong sense of community, Ledbury is a market town with a unique feel. It is well known for its timber-framed buildings; a number of these buildings align the charming High Street. Pop into Ledbury Town Hall to view the 16th century painted room or walk up a cobbled street to the Butcher Row House Museum which offers a fascinating glimpse into local Victorian life.
After lunch we make the short journey to Tewkesbury, a medieval gem also famed for its timber framed buildings. Tewkesbury is an ancient settlement situated at the meeting of the rivers Avon and Severn, the surrounding rivers and flood plain have prevented the old town from expanding so that its long thin profile has hardly altered since the middle ages. Tewkesbury is a delight for those seeking ‘Olde England’!
Day 4: Today is a day to relax and unwind and enjoy all the activities at Holme Lacy.
Day 5: Sadly, today we must say goodbye and begin our journey home
