The elegant 4 star Telford Hotel and Golf resort with full leisure facilities is our base for this holiday and it overlooks Shropshire’s famous Ironbridge Gorge. We also have a packed itinerary taking in a famous museum, 3 great towns and a popular city.
Monda We make a lunchtime stop in Bridgnorth, a split town linked by a funicular railway with amazing views. Then on to our hotel.
Tuesday We spend the morning at Blists Hill Victorian Town, where we discover a recreation of a late nineteenth century town. There are authentic Victorian shops, cottages and goods, plus all the sights and smells that go with it. Later we visit Ironbridge itself with great views of the famous bridge.
Wednesday All day in Shrewsbury, founded by the Saxons and developed by the Tudors. As a result there is great history and shopping in this town that lies within a giant loop of the River Severn.
Thursday We enjoy a circular tour of the Shropshire Hills and Welsh Marches with a stop in the town of Ludlow. Ludlow is a thriving medieval market town and an architectural gem with a 11th century castle.
Friday Home with a stop in revitalized Birmingham. At this time of year the famous Frankfurt Christmas Market is in full swing.
