Comfortable on your reserved coach seat, your driver will travel into Shropshire with comfort stops on the way. When you arrive at the hotel, there will be time to relax and take in the amazing views whilst your cases are whisked to your rooms.


After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, we meet the Sabrina for a trip down the River Severn. Enjoy beautiful views along the River Severn and photo opportunities on the outward journey before listening to an entertaining commentary from the knowledgeable captains on the return leg. While you are relaxing, tea and coffee and biscuits will be served. This afternoon there will be free time in Shrewsbury. If you're exploring on foot then don't miss the statue of Charles Darwin outside the Library. Darwin was born in the town and went to Shrewsbury School which was then housed in the library buildings and follow a Darwin Trail around town. Look out for the Quantum Leap Structure on the riverbank opposite Theatre Severn which was created to mark Darwin's 200th birthday.


Ludlow is our destination for today. Ludlow was a planned town, and just like the planned towns of the mid 1960's it was developed around a grid network of streets, adapted to fit the local topography. The grid nature of the medieval centre of Ludlow is still very obvious today. If you take a stroll down Broad Street or Mill Street you will see several far narrower side streets intersecting them. With eclectic shopping and wonderful cafes and restaurants Ludlow will ensnare you with its beauty.


After breakfast we take a scenic drive to Ironbridge. From the late 18th century until the 1950s, Blists Hill was an industrial site. At its peak in the 1850s it is thought more than 700 hundred men, women and children were working in the noisy and smoky environment of Blists Hill where iron chains clanked, steam-winding engines thudded, and horses laboured transporting materials and goods. The museum today reflects the times of those pioneers of industry.


We depart the hotel for our return journey to Lincolnshire, comfort stops on the way.
