treasure trove of fine furniture and textiles. Outdoors lies a fully restored 18th-century garden, with trained fruit trees, formal hedges and a nationally important collection of ivies.

Day 3 Tuesday

Drive to Stafford where we will spend some time exploring. Perhaps visit the Collegiate Church of Saint Mary, enjoy a drink by the riverside or maybe see Victoria Park with its aviary, glass house and
gardens. Continue to Stoke-on-Trent for the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery. Travel back in time and discover the history of The Potteries including the world’s greatest collection of Staffordshire ceramics.

Day 4 Wednesday

Visit Dudley first. Choose from the Castle, the Zoo and the Living Museum as there will not be enough time to visit all of them. Then a most interesting stop will be made at Wightwick Manor & Gardens. It is one of only a few surviving examples of a house built and furnished under the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement. The house has Victorian gardens and the outbuildings house stables, a handmade pottery shop, studio workshop and an antiquarian bookshop.
