Severn Valley Railway ride
Cream tea cruise on the River Avon
We visit the cathedral city of Worcester. The magnificent cathedral has a variety of architecture, from Norman to Gothic and the Porcelain Museum is well worth a visit.
In the afternoon, we travel to evesham to board a canal boat for a delightful two hour cruise through tranquil countryside on the River Avon with a delicious cream tea included.
Break for lunch in the attractive market town Leominster.
Later follow the Black and White Village Trail, travelling through some of the most attractive villages in England including Weobley, Pembridge and Eardisland.
We enjoy a steam train ride on the Severn Valley Railway, one of the country’s finest heritage lines which runs for 16 miles from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth.
In the afternoon, we visit Wightwick Manor and Gardens (National Trust, admission extra). This stunning house of the Aesthetic Movement was, by 1937, a relic of an out of fashion era (although then only 50 years old!). Yet, so complete was the design that it was worthy of preservation.
There is a remarkable collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Rossetti, Burne-Jones and their followers.
The Edwardian garden is a true gem.
Once the home of Prime Minister Sir Stanley Baldwin, this much extended country house is set in attractive grounds about 1½ miles from the centre of Stourport.
A number of bedrooms and suites are located in the original building, although the majority are in a more modern, purpose-built section.
No lift (there are several ground floor rooms, subject to availability).
