SHREWSBURY & IRONBRIDGE

Step back in time and evoke happy memories of the past as we discover a number of nostalgic attractions whilst taking in the scenery and loveliness of Shropshire and its surrounding counties.

Delightfully situated at the foot of Wrekin Hill, the three star Buckatree Hall Hotel is a country house hotel with its own lake. All bedrooms are en suite and have satellite television along with telephone, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.

Itinerary

Sunday Departing in the morning we travel to Shropshire and settle in to the Buckatree Hall Hotel.

Monday Today we head for the impressive Ironbridge Gorge where the world’s first iron bridge forms the centre of this World Heritage Site. Here we visit Blists Hill, the recreated Victorian town with cottages, shops and workplaces that show us what life was like over a hundred years ago. 

Tuesday Our coach takes us to Shrewsbury, a pretty town packed with timber framed black and white buildings amongst narrow alleyways surrounded by the River Severn. We have a one hour guided coach tour and a 45 minute river cruise to see the sights of the town. There will then be time to enjoy lunch and explore the town for yourself.                                               

Wednesday The excellent Black Country Living Museum is where we head today. Electric tramcars and trolley buses transport us back in time as we discover the regional way of life in this canal side village. Costumed demonstrations, working craftsmen and museums bring to life the spirit that created the first industrial landscape anywhere in the world.

Thursday We begin our day in Lichfield, one of the smallest cities in England but boasting a rich history and a wealth of fantastic period architecture. Later we visit RAF Cosford. This amazing museum is home to 70 aircraft of international importance housed in three wartime hangars and there are a number of impressive exhibitions.

Friday After breakfast we say goodbye to The Buckatree Hall and head south. We have a leisurely lunch break before returning to Cornwall.
