After much success last year, we return to Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fayre, said to be the best medieval show in the land, is held in Ludlow’s magnificent castle and features over 100 stalls selling seasonal gifts with a medieval nature. There is music, minstrels, merriment and mirth, as well as Knights, Dragons, Giants, Juggler, Dancers, Storytellers and displays. We also include a visit to the popular Birmingham Festive Market - the largest authentic German Christmas Market outside Germany and Austria and offers a superb range of food and drink, as well as a selection of unusual gifts to help you find that elusive present.
The Mercure Telford Madeley Court Hotel is a 16th Century Manor House, steeped in history, offering both the facilities of a modern hotel and the ambience of a beautiful Manor House in countryside surroundings. The conservatory area with its stylish furnishings and lakeside view makes for the perfect place to relax upon return to the hotel. The hotel is close to some great attractions including Ironbridge Gorge, site of the world’s first iron bridge and home of the Industrial Revolution.
Friday Our door to door service takes you to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive directly to Birmingham where we soak up the atmosphere of the festive season at their exciting German market. Later we arrive at the Mercure Telford Madeley Court hotel for 2 night stay. Upon arrival we enjoy a welcome drink followed by time to relax before dinner.
Saturday This morning we head south for the scenic drive, through Much Wenlock and in the shadow of Wenlock Edge to reach Ludlow for the medieval Christmas Fayre, rightly claimed to be the best in the land with a host of stalls, events and entertainers all in the setting of the towering castle. We remain until late afternoon. The day is yours to explore the Medieval Fayre and the historic town before returning to the hotel for dinner.
Sunday Leaving the hotel after a leisurely breakfast we travel to historic Lichfield with its magnificent cathedral for time to explore and refreshments, then on through the Midlands to return to our home area late afternoon after our enjoyable weekend away.
