Visit to Shrewsbury

Admission into Blists Hill Victorian Christmas


Today we visit the market town of Shrewsbury, home to an array of designer shops, chic new malls and a range of modern independent retailers - perfect for picking up a stocking filler (or two!) After some free time, we continue to our hotel.


After breakfast join us for a truly traditional Victorian Christmas at Blists Hill Victorian Town. Step back in time to a seasonal welcome from the Choirs and Brass bands as you wander through the town's twinkling lights and sparkling snow to discover the delightfully quaint Victorian market. With lots of classic, family-fun entertainment available don't forget to pop by the traditional Christmas bakery to pick up a tasty treat and call at the Big Top, to enjoy the pantomime and Punch and Judy!
