Day One

We leave the local area by coach this morning and travel to Birmingham, where we should arrive by early afternoon. The rest of the day is free for you to enjoy at your leisure.

Birmingham's Frankfurt Christmas Market is one of the largest outside Germany and features traditional wooden chalet-style stalls offering ceramics, candles, glasswork, jewellery and Christmas decorations, as well as traditional German items such as wooden toys, nativity scenes and marionettes.

Enjoy an early dinner before we re-board the coach and continue to our overnight hotel for a good night's sleep.

Day Two

Following an English breakfast we will leave the hotel for a short visit to the Ironbridge Gorge, for the memorable sight of the famous 196-foot long bridge spanning the spectacular Severn Gorge. Afterwards, we head to Blists Hill - the award-winning recreated Victorian town where history really does come to life.

Experience festive celebrations from the 1800s as knowledgeable, costumed staff give you a fascinating insight into Victorian life. See the townsfolk prepare seasonal decorations and traditional presents. Browse the small seasonal market for unique crafts, gifts and local produce, as the sound of carol singers and brass bands fills the air.

Leaving in the early to mid afternoon, we should arrive back in the local area by mid to late evening depending on the traffic and distance to be travelled.
