|After breakfast today the coach will depart the hotel for a trip to Wightwick Manor, near Wolverhampton – about an hour’s drive from Birmingham. The legacy of a family's passion for Victorian art and design, Wightwick Manor is a Victorian manor house located on Wightwick Bank. Owned by the National Trust since 1937, the Manor and its grounds are open to the public. It is one of only a few surviving examples of a house built and furnished under the influence of the Aesthetic movement and Arts and Crafts movement. The house is a notable example of the influence of William Morris, with original Morris wallpapers and fabrics, De Morgan tiles, Kempe glass and Pre-Raphaelite works of art. Time permitting, we may make a stop in Wolverhampton City where you can have a little while to browse or perhaps visit Wolverhampton Arts Museum before we board the coach and return to the hotel.
|NB – if anyone prefers to stay in Birmingham, they are perfectly welcome to do so but will have to make their way to the City independently. (B&B)
|Sunday 4 August
|After breakfast we will depart the hotel in Birmingham. We will set off for Holyhead with a stop at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (or 'Llanfair PG' - the Welsh village with the longest place name in Britain!). Here you can visit James Pringle Weavers for a spot of last-minute shopping and some lunch before we continue to Holyhead for the afternoon ferry back to Dublin. On arrival back in Dublin you will be dropped off at your original pick-up point.
