We depart and make our way to
Stafford and our hotel for the next 4 nights with
dinner, bed and breakfast


This morning we drive across rugged
and picturesque Cannock Chase on our journey to
Lichfield where you have free time to explore its
rich and varied history, Georgian museums
including the Samuel Johnson Birthplace and
Erasmus Darwin House, and its stunning
medieval cathedral.


Today we enjoy a visit to the
National Memorial Arboretum where you can
wander around the 150 acres of woodland,
dotted with over 300 memorials paying tribute
to those who have fallen. Here there are over
30,000 maturing trees and a wide variety of
flora and fauna growing into living tributes as a
mark of remembrance. Why not explore the
visitor centre and enjoy a coffee before we
continue to the market town of Tamworth, full of
quirky shops and historic gems.


We spend the day exploring the
famous Robin Hood city of Nottingham where
there is so much to see and do. Maybe visit the
impressive 17th century castle at the heart of
the city, or browse the museums and galleries,
walk the old streets and try to imagine life in
centuries past, or how about indulging in some
fabulous shopping.


After breakfast we depart and head for
