The first 7 nights on this tour are spent near the historic market town of Church Stretton in the Shropshire Hills - recognized as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Located near the Welsh border, it is not just the stunning scenery which will captivate you here, but also the history, the local people and their proud heritage. There are World Heritage Sites, medieval market towns, and heritage railways, all set within the astonishingly idyllic countryside.
Our next 3 nights are in Dovedale, located in the Peak District. From the high, moorland plateaus in the north, to the steep dales and rolling green hills in the south, this region has just about any landscape you can imagine in Britain. The area is loved for its breath-taking views, bustling, historic towns, some of Britain’s prettiest villages and well-known attractions.
We finish with a night in Manchester, which these days is one of the most exciting places to visit in the UK, and where all visitors receive a warm welcome.
