Shrewsbury is our destination today. We begin with a 45 minute river cruise which gently sails along the River Severn and a full commentary is provided throughout the trip. Afterwards you will have time to explore this beautiful medieval town, set within a loop of the River Severn. It is renowned to be one of England’s most splendid heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings, an ancient street layout of shuts and passageways, plus picturesque cobbled alleys and squares. Wyle Cop with its black and white timber buildings, boutiques, crafts and interiors shops is particularly attractive.

After breakfast we begin our journey home. We will take a scenic drive home through the beautiful Cotswolds, stopping at one or two of the lovely villages along the way. We aim to arrive back into Plymouth early evening.
