We make our way into Bristol city centre and Harbourside. This once run-down docks area is now transformed into a world class venue with many attractions, including the S.S.

Here we enjoy a cruise around the fascinating harbour and have time for lunch and the afternoon is free for you to explore the city and enjoy some retail therapy.

Day 4

This morning we join the West Somerset Railway at the holiday resort of Minehead. We journey by steam train along the former Great Western Railway branch line as far as Bishops Lydeard nestled at the foot of the Quantock Hills. The line hugs the coast for part of the journey and the little stations are a delight. Afterwards visit Bridgwater for refreshments to be obtained before returning to our hotel.
