Day 1 Saturday

Through the Midlands to visit Blists Hill and the Victorian Town (admission included), where we can explore the site and see what life was like at this time. It is part of the World Heritage Ironbridge Site. Leave late afternoon for the journey to the outskirts of Crewe. Dinner, bed & breakfast at Wychwood Park Hotel.

D

Day 2 Sunday

We visit Trentham Gardens, new-look gardens which have matured into some of the finest in Britain. Enjoy seeing the contemporary revival of the famous Italian Gardens, the Rivers of Grass and the adjacent Floral Labyrinth. In the centre is the mile long, Capability Brown designed, Trentham Lake. Take the circular lakeside walk all the way round as it takes you aside the River Trent, by the bird hide, through the cascading weir and along atmospheric trails. Then browse around the 77 timber lodges housing amazing shops, cafés and restaurants all filled to rafters with treats alongside Trentham Garden Centre. A long stop here before the homeward journey.

B

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

Experience a World Heritage Site, see some immaculate gardens and go shopping, all of which is arranged during two very interesting days. At Ironbridge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, you will encounter the atmosphere of a bygone era and see a way of life that has long disappeared. Next day the Trentham Estate, near Stoke-on-Trent, has gardens described as the ‘makeover of the decade’ and a shopping village comprised of timber lodges.
