We are delighted to offer an Easter tour featuring some of the many delights of Staffordshire & Shropshire, including stunning Shugborough, home of the Earls of Lichfield, a preserved railway and a very unusual garden.

 

 

DAY ONE - Good Friday

We depart from your own front door with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel to Staffordshire with comfort stops enroute, arriving at your hotel mid-afternoon, tea/coffee and biscuits served on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your rooms and time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO - Easter Saturday

Our first visit today takes us to the National Trust owned Biddulph Grange Garden, this is one of Britain’s most unusual gardens which features upside down trees, formal Italian Garden, Egyptian Court and a tranquil Chinese Garden, a delightful experience, well worth a visit.  From here we continue to the market town of Leek, Queen of the Staffordshire Moorlands – a must see is Getliffes Yard, a vibrant community of shops and cafes.  Original cobblestones create a relaxed, back-in-time atmosphere.  This afternoon we visit the Churnet Valley Railway at Cheddleton for a delightful 10-mile journey through Staffordshire’s hidden valley.

 

DAY THREE - Easter Sunday

Today we call at Amerton Farm & Craft Centre for a short break before continuing to the stunning Shugborough Estate, former home of the late Lord Patrick Lichfield, set on the banks of the Rover Sow, the magnificent 17th century mansion house offers much to see.

 

DAY FOUR - Easter Monday

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