Evesham Blossom Trail
Sun 29 April 2018
Spectacular countryside combined with fine displays of blossom make this a relaxing and enjoyable tour. For a short period each year the roadsides in the area lay heavy with trees in blossom. This spectacular site is a joy to behold. The lovely countryside adds to the spectacle and with visits to well known places of interest this is a fascinating yet relaxing tour. Guided days out add to the occasion.
We depart Cumbria heading South with comfort stops en route before we reach our lunch stop in Lichfield where you will have time to explore the lovely Market Town, We travel on to the National Arboretum where you will have time to look around before finishing our journey with the short transfer to our hotel at Stourport on Severn. Dinner is served in the hotel.
Following breakfast we have a full day tour as we head out on a guided tour of the Blossom trail around the Vale of Evesham. For a few short weeks between mid March and mid May the roadside are ablaze with blossom. Our journey takes in well known places such as Broadway and Pershore. We have comfort and lunch stops en route. We return to our hotel in time to freshen up for dinner.
