Local rustic rail riding down to Moreton-in-Marsh is followed by a visit to picture perfect Bourton-on-the-Water.

Day 3 - Sunday

Today we embark upon a circular tour that starts by rail to Gloucester. Our coach collects us from the station and takes us into Gloucester Docks for the excellent National Maritime Museum.

Later, we cross the Severn and head into the leafy lanes for steam in the depths of the Forest of Dean at the…Dean Forest Railway – lovely!

Our circuit Is completed by road via Ross-on Wye to Ledbury and rail back to Worcester - what a day out!
