PACKAGED ITINERARY

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 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 4 Severn Valley Railway Journey & Ludlow
In the morning we head for Kidderminster to board a Severn Valley steam train to Bridgnorth. There will be plenty of opportunity to admire the beautiful Shropshire and Worcestershire countryside from our carriage. After our journey we drive to the thriving medieval market town of Ludlow, an historic town surrounded by the beautiful countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh Marches. We have free time to have lunch and explore.

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