DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service and travel to Ludlow, often called ‘The Perfect Historic Town’ as there are nearly 500 listed buildings, time for lunch and browsing before continuing to our hotel in Stourport late afternoon.  Tea/coffee & biscuits will be served on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Today we head north to visit the Coalport china Museum, housing the exquisite collections of Coalport and Caughley China. The museum is in the magnificent listed buildings that were home to the factory until 1926.  From here we make our way to visit the Aerospace Museum at RAF Cosford.  This excellent exhibition has 70 aircraft dating back to wartime, memorabilia over the years, and the national Cold War exhibition gives an insight into life behind the Iron Curtain.

Our excursion takes us north to Stokesay Castle which is a survivor of 700 years of border and civil wars, its buildings are complete and breath-taking and Stokesay is the best fortified manor house in the UK.  From here we make our way to the little village of Acton Scot, here we visit the historic working farm, conceived to keep alive 19th century farming practices.  The farm offers a great insight into life on a Victorian country estate and it was featured on TV’s ‘Victorian Farm’.  Leaving here we have a pleasant drive along Wenlock Edge to take a break in Much Wenlock before returning to our hotel.
