Itinerary

Description

Take a tour on the scenic side and explore the natural beauty of Shropshire, and the wonderful unspoilt landscape the county has to offer. We enjoy a trip on one of Britain’s best-loved heritage railways, followed by the Blists Hill Museum, an open-air interactive experience which promises to be a fascinating glimpse into Victorian living. We also include an additional trip to Ludlow Market, and a relaxing cruise along the River Severn with light refreshments. Simply delightful!

Itinerary

Severn Valley Railway & Blists Hill Museum (full day)

We start the day by taking a charming trip on the Severn Valley Railway for a heritage train journey from Kidderminster to the ancient riverside town of Bridgnorth. The train meanders its way along the picturesque Severn Valley, passing quaint towns and villages along the way.

Afterwards, we continue to Ironbridge where we travel back in time to the Victorian era with our visit to the Blists Hill Museum.  Enjoy the sights and smells of this reconstructed working-class town where all the staff dress in period costume and you’ll find a whole range of shops, factories, and buildings.

Ludlow Market Day (full day)

Today we make our way to Ludlow, famous for its market which has taken place for over 900 years. There’s plenty of time to explore the stalls and find yourself a hidden gem or an interesting hand-crafted gift – the perfect place to shop for presents, this lively market has it all.

 

Shrewsbury & River Cruise (full day)

We travel to Shrewsbury, a fine medieval market town packed with timber-framed black and white buildings, a maze of narrow alleys and cobbled streets. Here we board our boat for a scenic cruise along the River Severn as it loops around the town. We enjoy light refreshments while we take in the beautiful views and discover the town’s unique history from our captain’s commentary.
