The line commands wonderful views of the hamlets & villages along the way, with wonderful outlooks to the Malvern Hills and beyond.

In the afternoon we visit the lovely city of Gloucester.

Day 5

We say farewell to Cheltenham and return to home area stopping in Wallingford, a beautiful Oxfordshire Market town situated on the River Thames. Wallingford has a strong presence in murder mystery fiction. Agatha Christie (who is buried at nearby Cholsey) lived and worked in Wallingford, taking influence from local landmarks and residents in Winterbrook stories such as Miss Marple. More recently, Wallingford is the location of Causton in the TV series Midsomer Murders. Many of the series' extras herald from Wallingford.
