Day One

We depart from your home and travel to Dudley for a cruise through the Dudley Canal Tunnel, be amazed by the impressive limestone caverns carved by man to gain access to the raw materials that changed our world forever.  A video presentation shown in Little Tess Cavern explains how the limestone was originally formed and you will learn how the fossilised remains of small creatures and plants – now clearly visible in Castle Mill’s coral reef, once lay on the sea bed. We will also discover the lifelike reconstructions in Hurst Cavern, depicting how miners worked in the tunnels during the 18th century before finally finished with an incredible music and light show in the Singing Cavern. We continue to our hotel, an early dinner for tonight only at 5.30 in the Caslon Suite.

 

Day Two

Today, thanks to an extraordinary guided visit, we will step back in time and discover a unique place, Black Country Living Museum, and open air museum set in 26 acres of former industrial land and we will learn about the creation of the world’s first industrial landscape.  Throughout the day you will be immersed into 200 years of history with some of the most hard-working, ingenious and influential people you could imagine.  Take a trip on the tram to explore the canal side village where you can meet and chat to costumed characters, a truly amazing day.

 

Day Three

Today is our ‘Sweet’ treat with a full day exploring Cadbury World and discovering chocolate’s history, learn about the origins and story of the Cadbury business, the world’s second largest confectionery manufacturer.  The Bournville Experience explains the background to the development of the site which includes, video presentations, multi-sensory cinema, interactive displays and activities and demonstrations.  Your visit will complete with an afternoon tea with scones & sandwiches and of course a tasting of its famous chocolate.

 

Day Four

This morning after a leisurely breakfast we begin our journey home with comfort stops enroute.
