Coach Holidays to Himley – From our base in Himley, we are ideally placed to explore some of the finest attractions the Heart of England has to offer. The dreaming spires of Oxford, site of England’s oldest university which has produced many world famous academics, lies just over an hour’s drive away. Magnificent architecture, impressive yet intimate colleges, romantic rivers and hidden nooks and crannies make for an intriguing visit.
The town of Stratford upon Avon is also easily accessible; renowned as the birthplace of the world’s finest bard, the town has many interesting Shakesperian sites, including the ‘World of Shakespeare’ and Anne Hathaway’s cottage.
And no trip to this region would be complete without a visit to the beautiful Cotswolds, an expanse of gently sloping hills and honey-coloured limestone cottages which is the epitome of all that is quintessentially English!
We use the Himley Country Hotel, which was originally a nineteenth century schoolhouse and offers comfortable accommodation.
The village of Himley lies approximately four miles from the large town of Dudley and around five miles from Wolverhampton. Its most prominent feature is Himley Hall, a magnificent Grade II listed building and former home of the Lords of Dudley. Himley also has a golf club and two parks, one which is located in the grounds of Himley House.
