Join us this Christmas on a short break to Stratford-Upon-Avon, taking in all the sights of this medieval Shakespearean town on a walking tour with a Blue Badge Guide. This market town has an incredibly rich history and culture to be uncovered. We also visit Warwick Castle and the stunning grounds and gardens. Built by William the Conqueror in 1068, the Castle has evolved over time – from wooden fort, to fortress, and finally to a stately home. This tour is rounded off with a return trip on the Severn Valley Railway with a light lunch.

Today we travel by coach to Bridgnorth, where we board the Severn Valley railway and enjoy a return journey by steam. The 16-mile route follows the winding path of the River Severn, so sit back, relax and enjoy the excellent river views as the train travels across the 200 metre Victoria Bridge. We alight at Kidderminster station where we will enjoy an included light lunch and refreshment. We board the train for the return journey to Bridgnorth where our coach meets us and takes us back to the hotel for our evening meal.
After breakfast we say goodbye to our Shakespearean setting and depart at leisure.
Please note: We cannot guarantee that all rail journeys will be steam hauled. The running order of the itinerary will be confirmed in your final travel documents.
