The lovely county of Shropshire must surely be one of England’s secret gems. Shropshire is England’s 6th least populated county, giving the area a relaxed feel.  It has a truly remarkable variety of places to visit from its finest unspoilt scenery, wooded hillsides, lakes, and half-timbered villages are a delight to explore.  During the tour visit the World Heritage site of living Victoriana at Blists Hill, take a walk across the 1st Iron bridge in the world with the crowning glory being a venture into Wales to ‘Float in the sky’ on the magnificent Pontcysylite aqueduct and sit back, relax and admire the town on a River Severn cruise.
