Itinerary

Included Excursions

Severn Valley Railway & Blists Hill Victorian Town (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 sleepy towns and villages along the way.

Afterwards, we continue to Ironbridge where we travel back in time with our visit to the Blists Hill Victorian Town. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of this reconstructed working-class town complete with a whole range of shops, factories, and buildings, along with costumed characters.

Ludlow Market (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 – it’s the perfect place to shop for presents.

 

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 learn about the town’s unique history from our captain’s commentary.
