Shropshire; Unspoilt, unrushed and tranquil is a perfect description of one of England’s quiet counties and is an ideal region for a holiday away from the stresses of modern life. We travel to Shrewsbury, one of the many traditional market towns in the area. The birthplace of Charles, Darwin and practically surrounded by The River Severn, Shrewsbury is a medieval delight of black and white buildings and we enjoy a relaxing cruise on the river. Prepare to venture back in time, as we board the Severn Valley steam-hauled passenger train from Kidderminster through the beautiful Shropshire countryside to the market town of Bridgnorth. We visit the RAF Museum at Cosford.
Home to over 70 aircraft of international importance and adjacent to an active airfield, this enthralling museum is not just for aviation enthusiasts and we include a guided tour to bring the exhibitions alive. We travel to the nearby Iron Bridge, opened in 1779 and a UNESCO world heritage site since 1986. This greatly celebrated bridge was the first major bridge in the world made of cast iron and we explore the fascinating Ironbridge museums. Whether you are interested in a reconstruction of a Victorian Village to a museum for fine china in the spectacular wooded Ironbridge Gorge, there is something for everyone. We travel to Ludlow in south Shropshire, one of the most attractive towns in England and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of our comfortable hotel.
We return to Scotland after a relaxing summer holiday.
