After breakfast on Saturday morning, we will board our coach and head to the Ironbridge Gorge Museums. Our first stop is Museum of the Gorge – a great place to begin our visit. Here we will see a spectacular 12 metre long model of the Gorge as it was in 1789 and catch a short film that will tell us how this area became the most pioneering place in the world.

Later we will walk in historic footsteps across the Iconic Iron Bridge, before proceeding to the Coalport China Museum. Explore the distinctive buildings of this fascinating museum and browse the beautiful collections, including elaborate vases and hand-painted miniatures made for queens and tsars. Our last stop is Blists Hill Victorian Town, where we will travel back over 100 years to experience the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the Victorian age, enjoying lots of food and drink along the way.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

Dress Code
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart, with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.
