Itinerary

Day One - We depart Pembrokeshire and start the journey North. We will be greeted with a Shortbread by the Gretna Hall Hotel.

Day Two - After a full (English or Scottish) breakfast, we will be joined by our tour guide for a full day tour of the Cumbrian Soloway Firth area.  With dramatic views across the water to Scotland, take in the fortified medieval sites and the local history of attractive Solway coastal towns and villages. Time at leisure in the seaside location of Silloth is followed by a scenic drive along the coast to the once important shipbuilding town of Maryport. Savour the distant views of the Cumbrian Lake District Fells and Scottish hills on the return journey to the hotel.

Day Three - Today we make our way to Devil's Porridge Museum. Commemorating HM Factory Gretna, the largest munitions factory in the world during the First World War. The museum also brings to life the Solway Military Coast during the Second World War and beyond. Meet your guide for an afternoon tour taking in the Scottish side of the Solway estuary. There will be a visit to Annan harbour, once a busy ship building site and an historic stepping off point for Scottish people emigrating to the USA and Canada in the 1800s.

Day Four - After breakfast we make the short journey to Carlisle. This 2000-year-old city with two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one World Heritage Site has something for everyone. Visit the medieval Castle, built in 1092 by William Rufus or step inside Carlisle's imposing Cathedral occupying a central position in the heart of the ‘historic quarter'. After visiting Carlisle, we make our way back to Gretna for some free time to explore the old blacksmith or take a stroll down to Gretna’s Outlet centre for some retail therapy before returning to the hotel for our evening meal.

Day Five - Sadly, it’s time to depart the delights of Gretna Hall Hotel and start our journey home.
