You can take lunch here. In the afternoon we will visit the Stump Cross Caverns - don't forget to bring your sturdy shoes!.

An ideal activity whatever the weather, Stump Cross Caverns is all under cover with designated walkways for you to follow.

Friday - Day 5

After breakfast we will load the coach and start our journey to the West Country. On the way we will make a visit to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Fifteen acres of glorious landscaped gardens with over 7000 plants, shrubs and trees - and a new Butterfly House. Close to Birmingham city centre, this hidden tranquil setting also has four glasshouses taking the visitor from the hot steamy heat of the Tropical rainforest with its rich vegetation, through to the Sub-Tropical House with its stunning palms and tree ferns. The visitor moves through to the Mediterranean House, with its citrus plants and bright conservatory-type blooms - and finally to the stark contrast of the Arid House with desert climate and stunning cacti.
