This morning we make our way into the City of Birmingham where we have the day free to explore. The centre of Birmingham, transformed each year into a magical Festive Market, the largest authentic German Christmas Market outside Germany and Austria. You will be tempted by a superb range of food and drink, as well as a selection of unusual gifts to help you find that elusive present. In the afternoon we make our way to the Arena Birmingham, where we take our seats for the fabulous Birmingham Tattoo, a spectacular production which has been thrilling audiences for over 20 years. Dinner tonight is not included.


Day 3

After a leisurely breakfast we leave and head for historic Stratford-upon-Avon with its many Shakespeare connections. We have time for a look around, maybe a brief stroll along the river, and obtain lunch before we leave in the afternoon and head for home.
