BLISTS HILL CHRISTMAS & SEVERN VALLEY RAIL

Take a step back in time to a bygone Christmas and enjoy the magic of traditional celebrations and an array of nostalgic gifts in the Blists Hill Victorian Village at Ironbridge. As a contrast to this we take to the rails by steam with a ride along the picturesque Severn Valley Railway.

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 have satellite TV, telephone, hairdryer and hot drink facilities. The hotel has a lift.

Itinerary

Friday We travel from Cornwall to Shropshire via the Severn Bridge and the Welsh borderlands for a wealth of lovely scenery. A warm welcome and cup of tea awaits us on arrival.

Saturday Our coach will take us to Ironbridge Gorge and village where there will be time to see the famous bridge before making our way to Blists Hill. The Victorian town takes us back to an age of steam and we see life as it was more than a hundred years ago. At this special time of year the Christmas Market transforms this living museum into a festive street of cheer and entertainment.

Sunday After breakfast we travel to Bridgnorth and join the Severn Valley Railway. Relax in a heritage steam locomotive as we take a scenic journey along the attractive sixteen mile line to Kidderminster. After time to browse in the town we visit the Stourport Manor Hotel for an afternoon cream tea.

Monday We leave the Buckatree Hall Hotel and travel to Gloucester where you can have an early lunch, enjoy the Christmas markets or stroll along the quayside. After lunch we will make our way back to Cornwall, arriving home early in the evening.
