Itinerary

Sunday Leaving Cornwall we travel to Worcestershire with a break in the spa city of Cheltenham for lunch. In the afternoon we arrive at our hotel to a warm welcome drink.

Monday Our day begins with a visit to Coalport China Museum. Located in magnificent listed factory buildings, we learn of its history and see the exquisite collections of Coalport and Caughley China. Later we make our way to the Aerospace Museum at RAF Cosford. This excellent exhibition has  aircraft dating back to wartime, years of memorabilia and a National Cold War exhibition.

Tuesday This morning we discover the delights of Worcester, take in the architecture, see the impressive Cathedral or stroll along the scenic River Severn. This afternoon we have a drive along the delightful Severn Valley to Bewdley where we visit the West Midlands Safari Park. Here we enjoy tea and cakes before a Safari Drive with a knowledgeable park guide.

Wednesday Today we take in Stokesay Castle, known to be the best fortified manor house in Britain. Later we make for the little village of Acton Scott and the Historic Working Farm, conceived to keep alive 19th century farming practices. The farm offers a great insight into life on a Victorian country estate. The farm has featured on TV’s ‘Victorian Farm’.

Thursday After breakfast we leave our hotel and take the scenic route along the Welsh Marches area via Hereford and Ross-on-Wye. There will be a leisurely lunch before we finish the journey home.
