IRONBRIDGE & NATIONAL MEMORIAL

Along the upper reaches of the River Severn and the borders between England and Wales, the countryside of Shropshire shelters beautiful landscapes and unspoilt historic towns. Our early tour takes us through the beautiful region just as signs of spring are appearing.

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 tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.

Itinerary

Monday Departing from Cornwall we travel to Shropshire arriving at the Buckatree Hall Hotel to a warm welcome with tea and biscuits.

Tuesday Our first destination today is Lichfield and it is market day in one of the smallest, most historic cities in England. Later we move on to the National Memorial Arboretum, the year-round national site of remembrance for the UK. With over three hundred memorials and an abundance of wildlife, there is something for everyone at the Arboretum.

Wednesday Today we drive via the picturesque Wenlock Edge to historic Ludlow, with its endless array of listed buildings. Here we have time to obtain lunch, explore or visit the castle before we rejoin our coach and visit Bridgnorth. Once one of the busiest ports in Europe, the banks of the Severn in this town are now a peaceful haven.

Thursday We visit the impressive Ironbridge Gorge where the world’s first iron bridge forms the centre of this World Heritage Site. After a break in Ironbridge village we make our way to Blists Hill Victorian town, a bustling recreation of life in a Victorian town complete with tastes of the past; fish and chips in beef dripping or a bag of old fashioned sweets.

Friday After breakfast we leave Shropshire and begin our journey home breaking for a leisurely lunch.
