5 Day Good Companions Holiday

We step back in time when we head to the Ironbridge Gorge, a long standing landmark and an iconic tribute to Britain’s industrial past. We also visit nearby Blists Hill Victorian Town, the open-air museum that recreates the sights, sounds and smells of a Victorian Shropshire town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. On another day, we experience the beating heart of Stratford-upon-Avon on a relaxing river cruise through the historic canal lock and into the River Avon with commentary from Shakespearian actors. Ancient Worcester is our final outing where the tower of the beautiful cathedral dominates the skyline.

Your Excursions

Stratford-upon-Avon
We experience the beating heart of Stratford-upon-Avon on a relaxing river cruise through the historic canal lock and into the River Avon with commentary from Shakespearian actors as we take in the half-timbered architecture in Shakespeare-land.

Ironbridge Gorge & Blists Hill Victorian Town & Telford
The World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge is where the Industrial Revolution began and home to the first ever cast iron bridge. At fascinating Blists Hill you can dress up in a Victorian costume, buy old favourites at the sweet shop and explore period cottages. From here, we move on to Telford where you might like to relax in Town Park where you’ll find nature trails, wildlife enclosures, café, visitor centre and gift shop.

Worcester
A day in ancient Worcester where the skyline is dominated by the tower of the beautiful cathedral that houses royal tombs, medieval cloisters and an ancient crypt. Perhaps visitthe fascinating thirteenth century Commandery or head to enchanting half-timbered Friar Street to browse the unique boutiques and explore the Tudor house
