We’ll have some free time to explore the town’s attractions and enjoy a leisurely lunch before we depart during the mid-afternoon and continue to our hotel in Telford.


Day Two

Today, we soak up the fabulously festive atmosphere at Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market. With twinkling lights, traditional wooden chalets selling unique Christmas gifts, street entertainers, fairground attractions and the aroma of hot mulled wine drifting in the air, it’s the perfect way to get into the festive spirit.
