Itinerary

Description

If you are looking for a short break with a jam-packed, exciting itinerary, then this getaway is perfect for you! We head underground on a fantastic canal cruise to discover the incredible Limestone Mines in the Black Country, where thousands of tonnes of limestone were carved out in the 18th century to fuel the Industrial Revolution. We also enjoy a picturesque journey on the Severn Valley Railway, one of the most scenic heritage railways in the country, and visit the fascinating Red House Glass Cone Heritage and Craft Centre – a truly unique few days to remember!

Coach Itinerary

Saturday: From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to Dudley. Here we explore the spectacular Limestone Mines and enjoy a skipper-guided underground cruise along the world-famous Dudley Canal Tunnel, where limestone was once transported centuries ago. Two audio-visual shows bring the history of this hidden world to life. Afterwards, we discover the fascinating Red House Glass Cone Heritage & Craft Centre, home to glassmaking for over 400 years, and browse the beautiful glassware. Later we head to the hotel for dinner and our overnight stay.

Sunday: After breakfast we check out of the hotel and head to Kidderminster, where we embark on a scenic journey on the heritage Severn Valley Steam Railway to the charming town of Bridgnorth. Admire unspoilt panoramas as we meander through the idyllic countryside and enjoy crossing over the River Severn via the famous Victoria Bridge. We enjoy some time at leisure in Bridgnorth before rejoining the coach in the mid afternoon for the journey home.

Please note: the itinerary order is subject to changeand theSevern Valley Railway journey will either be from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth or vice versa.
