Travel to historic Stratford-on-Avon, arriving in time to get lunch and do some sightseeing in Shakepeare’s town. During the afternoon we enjoy a boat trip on the River Avon, a river that flows gently through pleasant countryside to eventually join the Severn. Continue to our hotel with dinner, bed and breakfast for 2 nights.



Worcestershire’s countryside, tremendous views (like from Clee Hill), then the multitude of medieval and Georgian preserved buildings that make the Shropshire town of Ludlow so attractive and rewarding to explore. And it’s dominated by the Castle high above the valley of the River Teme.

Leaving the hotel after breakfast we head into the Cotswolds and the lovely little town of Broadway. Here we have time to explore and obtain lunch and this afternoon we make our way to Toddington where we join the GWR (Gloucestershire/ Warwickshire Railway) for a ride through the Cotswolds to Cheltenham Racecourse station and back. Re-join the coach for the journey home.
