Day 4:

This morning we travel to Staffordshire and the historic city of Lichfield. The triple spires of the magnificent Cathedral dominate the city. Beyond the quiet Cathedral Close the city's prominence as a 18th century coaching hub is pleasantly obvious with an old-world charm of pre-industrial streets and many historical buildings. We have time to explore the city and obtain lunch before we continue back to the hotel for tea/coffee & mince pies. After dinner tonight there will be more evening entertainment at the hotel.

Day 5:
