Tour Itinerary
Day 1

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. Marvel at its classic timber framed buildings, and look out for the 17th century black and white Market House. Its quaint cobbled medieval streets lead to the Heritage Centre and some of Ledbury's many museums. From here, we make our way to the beautiful spa town of Malvern, home to the Morgan Motor Company for over 100 years. Enjoy a guided tour of the factory, and watch the skilled craftsmen at work as they hand-craft the famous Morgan sports cars.

Day 3

Ludlow & Stokesay Castle
Today we head to Ludlow, a historic market town surrounded by the beautiful countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh Marches. We have free time to explore and enjoy lunch before we travel to Stokesay Castle, the best preserved fortified medieval manor house in England. Discover the Great Hall, unchanged for over 700 years, and the carvings in the timbers of the 17th century gatehouse.

Day 4

Witley Court & Worcester River Cruise
We travel to Witley Court this morning for a guided tour of the house and gardens. Once one of the great
country houses of Victorian England, the house was devastated by fire in 1937. Today, the spectacular ruins provide evidence of the opulence and scale, whilst the beautifully restored parterres, garden and fountain are a relaxing retreat.
From here, we head to Worcester where we have free time for lunch, before we set off on a circular river cruise through one of England's prettiest cities.

Day 5

After breakfast, we make our way home.
