Day 1

Picked up from home by one of our Door to Door vehicles and then travel by Elite coach to the hotel. We will make a suitable lunchtime en- route and once you have settled in why not relax in the bar before dinner.

Day 2

We spend today at Shugborough Hall, a rare surviving complete estate, with all major buildings. We explore the Georgian mansion, experiencing life below stairs as well as the world of glamour and royalty in the apartments of Patrick Lichfield, 5th Earl and fashion photographer, before discovering the parkland and Park Farm.

Day 3

This morning we travel to the Shropshire Hills to visit the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm where we will be transported back in time to experience life on a farm at the turn of the last century. With Shire horses working the land and the resident wheelwright, there is plenty to see. In the afternoon we enjoy a return journey from Bridgnorth to Bewdley on the vintage steam-hauled Severn Valley Railway. Sit back and admire the scenery of the Worcestershire and Shropshire countryside as the railway hugs the Severn Valley.

Day 4

Today, we take a short trip to Telford and visit the Ironbridge Gorge Museums, featuring Blists Hill Victorian Town, a living museum that vividly re-enacts life in Ironbridge from the early 1700s to the Victorian era. We complete our day by viewing the Iron Bridge itself.

Day 5

After breakfast, we make our way home.
