A High Performing Tour of Worcester

Our fantastic new packaged tour of Worcestershire takes in the famous Morgan Motor Company, famous for its high performing sports cars, the impressively preserved Stokesay Castle, the magnificent ruins of Witley Court and a relaxing river cruise around Worcester, as well as the medieval market towns of Ledbury and Ludlow.
Day 1 Arrival

We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Ledbury & Morgan Motor Company
This morning, we spend time at leisure in the attractive market town of Ledbury, full of timber framed buildings. Look out for the 17th century black and white Market House and the much photographed cobbled medieval street where the Heritage Centre, Butchers Row Folk Museum and the Painted Room leading to the fine parish church can be found. From here, we make our way to the beautiful spa town of Malvern, home of the Morgan Motor Company for over 100 years. We enjoy a 2 hour guided tour of the factory, watching the skilled craftsmen at work as they hand make the famous Morgan sports cars.

Day 3 Ludlow & Stokesay Castle
We head for the thriving medieval market town of Ludlow this morning, an historic town surrounded by the beautiful countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh Marches. We have free time to explore and enjoy lunch before we travel to Stokesay Castle, the finest and best preserved fortified medieval manor house in England. We discover the Great Hall, unchanged for over 700 years, the carvings in the timbers of the 17th century gatehouse and take in the magnificent views of the Shropshire hills.

Day 4 Witley Court & Worcester River Cruise
We travel to Witley Court this morning where we enjoy a 1 hour guided tour of the estate house and gardens. Once one of the great country houses of Victorian England, attracting fashionable society when it was the setting for extravagant parties and royal entertainment, the house was devastated by fire in 1937. Today, the spectacular ruins provide evidence of the opulence and scale of the architecture and interiors whilst the beautifully restored parterres, garden and Perseus and Andromeda fountain provide a relaxing retreat. From here, we head to Worcester where we have free time for lunch before we set off on a 45 minute circular river cruise through one of England’s loveliest cities.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
