Coach Tours

Shrewsbury and the Severn Gorge

Travel through the rolling English countryside surrounding the River Severn and visit some of the delightful towns and historic sites that lie nearby. Your qualified guide will show you the ancient market town of Bridgnorth, perched overlooking the river. Our journey then takes us into the magnificent Severn Gorge, which in the 1700’s was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution but is now a picturesque World Heritage site. Further north, we pause at the astonishing remains of Wroxeter, once a substantial Roman City before visiting Shrewsbury. With over 660 listed buildings it has justifiably been called ‘England’s finest Tudor town’. Before we return home there will be free time to explore the town.

As Blue Badge Tour Guides we have the knowledge and the understanding to point out the many places of interest to be seen during the journey, and recount the fascinating stories that bring them to life.

Cotswolds day out

Take a day tour to experience the timelessness of this lovely region. Glorious churches and manor houses reflect the wealth of the former wool trade and the honey-coloured stone gives harmony to picturesque villages such as Chipping Camden, Burford or Broadway. Enjoy a leisurely stroll or drink, beside a crystal clear stream or browse in the region’s many antique shops.

Lower Slaughter

One day to visit two of the best

Voted “Number One Castle” in Britain, the fantastic mediaeval Warwick Castle offers a special experience for all the family. Feel a chill at the top of the Ghost Tower and cower in the depths of the Dungeons. If you are still feeling brave, visit the Torture Chamber then on to the “Kingmaker” to smell, hear and see the household of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, prepare for battle.

Inside the walls of Warwick Castle

On a more sedate note see the stunning state rooms and travel back to 1898 as the Castle prepares for a visit from the Prince of Wales.

Take time to walk the Castle’s 60 acres of grounds, largely landscaped by “Capability” Brown then cross the River Avon to visit Pageant Field to watch jousting and the firing of the awesome, world record holding 22 tonne Trebuchet.  These are just a few of the many things to do and sights to be seen in Warwick Castle’s extensive grounds.

The romantic ruins of Kenilworth Castle

From Warwick Castle it is just a short trip to Britain’s finest ruined castle, Kenilworth. The romantic Elizabethan Knot Garden has recently been completely replanted and is a fitting reminder of Kenilworth’s story of the Royal Love of the Virgin Queen. But Kenilworth Castle is not just “Hearts and Flowers”, although now a ruin, it was the site of the longest Castle siege in British history.
