Rides on The Great Central Railway & Severn Valley Railway
Grand Union Canal Cruise
Our day begins with a drive south to historic Coventry where we visit the Museum of British Road Transport, with over 400 artefacts and thousands of items of memorabilia from the golden age of cars and cycles.
We have time for lunch here before we head off to Baddesley Clinton House.
This atmospheric moated house has been a sanctuary since the 15th century, with three priest holes and the peaceful gardens, with fish pools, romantic lake and walled garden are a delight.
This morning we make for the little village of Foxton. Here we board ‘Vagabond’, an elegant vintage motor launch, for a trip on the Grand union Canal, seeing the Foxton flight of 10 locks, and gently passing through peaceful countryside.
In the afternoon, we head for the northern outskirts of Leicester where we join the Great Central Railway for a nostalgic steam train ride for 18 miles to Loughborough crossing picturesque Swithland Reservoir on the way.
We ride to Kidderminster and join the Severn Valley Railway for a ride along the valley to Bridgnorth, passing through delightfully restored stations on the way.
From here we head for the Black Country Museum in time for lunch.
Here you can ride on a tram, enjoy traditional fish and chips, have a pint in the Bottle and Glass, and much more.
