Itinerary

Day 1 - After joining your holiday coach, sit back and relax as your journey takes you to the Midlands. Enjoy a stop in the vibrant county town of Warwick, a treasure house of medieval architecture, with rich veins of history and charming streets, dominated by the soaring turrets of Warwick Castle (entrance not included). Then it’s onward to your hotel for the weekend, Novotel Coventry. Breakfast and dinner included.

Day 2 – Spend this morning in Coventry, once a major engineering centre and now the rejuvenated UK City of Culture 2021. A guided visit is included to the must-see Coventry Cathedral which opened in 1962, after the massive attack by the Luftwaffe on 14 November 1940 all but destroyed the original building. The new cathedral was built next to the ruins of the old one and its modern design caused much controversy at the time. You may like to visit the Coventry Transport Museum, a stupendous collection of hundreds of vehicles, from horseless carriages to jet-powered, land-speed-record breakers (entrance not included – approx. £14 per person in 2021). Return to the hotel this afternoon for an early dinner before heading to the Resorts World Arena at the NEC to experience the pomp and pageantry that is the Birmingham International Tattoo. All the traditional elements of the Tattoo will be present again - from the massed bands, parade of standards to the spectacular grand finale - plus much, much more.  

Day 3 – After a relaxed breakfast, board your coach for the journey back to interchange. Make a stop en-route at ever popular Stratford-Upon-Avon with unmistakably Tudor buildings, its many cosy tearooms, independent shops and of course, Shakespeare's modest grave in Holy Trinity Church. Arrive back in your hometowns this evening.
