IRONBRIDGE & MEMORIAL ARBORETUM

Along the upper reaches of the River Severn, the attractive countryside of Shropshire shelters some of the impressive landscapes and unspoilt towns. We base our tour here to explore local history and take time to visit the vast and thought provoking National Memorial Arboretum.

Itinerary

Monday We travel to Shropshire arriving at our hotel later in the day to a welcome hot drink and biscuits.

Tuesday This morning we visit the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas. This impressive site has 150 acres, over 300 emotive memorials and an abundance of nature and wildlife. We include a guided audio tour by land train to get the best out of our visit. Later in the day we have time in the historic city of Lichfield. 

Wednesday Our first visit today is to a town steeped in legend where Wales meets England. The market town of Oswestry will be plying its fayre to people from both sides of ‘the Marches’. Later we visit Shrewsbury which is packed with timber framed black and white buildings. Here we enjoy a peaceful cruise on the River Severn.  

Thursday We visit the impressive Ironbridge Gorge where the world’s first iron bridge forms the centre of this World Heritage Site. After time in the village we make our way to Blists Hill Victorian town. This bustling recreation of a victorian town allows us to discover a life gone by. 

Friday After breakfast we leave Telford and travel back to Cornwall.
