5 Days Half Board by Coach
The lovely county of Shropshire must surely be one of England’s secret gems. Enjoying some of the country’s finest unspoilt scenery, these tranquil borderlands of meadows, wooded hillsides, lakes and half-timbered villages are a delight to explore. We’ve also added a visit to the Ironbridge Gorge Museum to top-off this wonderfully different short break.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Full day: We head to Ironbridge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and site of the world’s first iron bridge, built across the River Severn between 1711-81. We explore the valley, and of course have the opportunity to cross the bridge itself, before visiting the fascinating museum of Blists Hill Victorian Town.
Full day: This morning to Shrewsbury, one of England’s finest Tudor towns. After some time for sightseeing we head into the heart of Shropshire, surrounded by the Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge, to the border town of Ludlow, one of Britain’s loveliest medieval towns.
Half day: This morning to pretty Bridgnorth, in reality two towns – the low town beside the River Severn and the castled high town, connected by the steepest inland funicular railway in Britain. There will be time to explore this historical town or perhaps take an optional ride on the world famous Severn Valley Steam Railway (seasonal only).
