Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area, we travel to Worcester to visit the Christmas market. Known for its exquisite Royal Worcester porcelain and magnificent cathedral, this historic city transforms at Christmastime when shopholders and entertainers in period garb take us back in time to drink in the atmosphere of a classic Victorian Christmas market where all manner of traditional gift ideas and delicious food is on offer. Later we travel to our hotel for our overnight stay.

En route home, we visit Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of the Bard. Fans of Shakespeare can visit the house in which he was born or discover the town’s theatres including the Swan Theatre, home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as take the opportunity to wander the beautiful riverside gardens. We re-join the coach in the mid-afternoon for our journey home.

Carousel - Stratford Upon Avon



Enjoy the many attractions of the historic city of Worcester, set on the banks of the River Severn and surrounded by some of the most beautiful rural landscapes in England.

The city has a small town feel and many architectural gems thanks to its jumble of medieval, Tudor and Georgian buildings. Admire the half-timbered buildings on Friar Street including the National Trusts’ Greyfriars’ House and Garden and the 500-year old -Tudor House or the beautiful 18th-century Guildhall on the High Street.

Magnificent Worcester Cathedral risesmajestically above the river, overlooking the city. Built between 1084 and 1504, the cathedral represents every style of English architecture and boasts royal tombs, medieval cloisters, a Norman crypt and magnificent Victorian stained glass.

As well as being the birthplace of the composer Edward Elgar, the city is also famous for its exquisite Royal Worcester porcelain, with prestigious collections of tableware, homeware and gifts. The piquant Worcestershire sauce was first sold in the city in 1838 by John Wheeley Lea and William Henry Perrins (Lea & Perrins).

Worcester also has an unrivalled range of shops, from high street names to independent boutiques, plus a lovely selection of cafés and restaurants.

For history and art buffs, you can explore The Commandery to learn about the city’s important role in the English Civil War or see a contemporary exhibition at the City Art Gallery.
