This is always a popular event as it rounds off the year so well. It gives us all time to talk to people we have met during the year in a relaxing environment. But it is always very popular. So early booking is essential! Especially this year, as it is something really special.
We have been very lucky to be able to book a Christmas lunch for us at Spring Grove House near Bewdley. After an intriguing drive we will come upon this elegant Georgian-styled house which has reopened following a remarkable transformation after a devastating fire destroyed it and all of its contents on Christmas Eve 2006. A warm welcome on arrival will set the tone for the rest of our visit! There will be an army of elegantly-attired staff to look after us before and during lunch. As always, there will be a choice of a three-course traditional Christmas lunch, a fish dish, or a vegetarian dish; which will be followed by tea/coffee and mince pie.
En route to Spring Grove House we will visit the small riverside town of Bewdley. The town, which is on the edge of the Wyre Forest, has its own unique charm and is a short drive from our lunch stop. Explore Bewdley’s many attractions including the much acclaimed Bewdley Museum which is set in the heart of this beautiful Georgian town. Here, you will find a range of indoor and outdoor options adjacent to the wonderful Jubilee Gardens and Community Orchard. (Weather permitting). Or simply relax with a coffee as you watch the world go by in one of the many lovely cafes overlooking the river.
The cost for coach, visit to Bewdley and three course lunch etc at Spring Grove House is £53.95. Please send a £15.00 non-refundable deposit per person when booking. The coach will leave Shrewsbury at approximately 9.30am and return about 5.30pm. Payment made out to Wisteria Tours.
