There are 10 museums to choose from and we went into Engenuity first which personally I would skip given the choice again, as you get better information and displays in some of the other museums. The Coalbrookedale Museum of Iron was excellent with many displays both inside and out showing the development of the iron industry. We also visited two restored Darby houses used by the families.
- The Coalport China Museum
- Jackfields Tile Museum
- Tar Tunnel
- Broseley Pipeworks
- Blists Hill Victorian Town
Cheltenham Spa Town
National Hunt Racing in the UK, and the Cheltenham Gold Cup are annual events.
We walked toward town and had a small but very tasty meal at the Thai Family Restaurant. It had been awarded a Trip Advisor Top Restaurant Award. There were several duck choices and we chose duck curry and a papaya salad.
Breakfast in the Apartments was really delicious. It was a real treat to have a choice of scrambled egg and salmon on rye toast......very yummy! Cereals, toast and coffee completed the meal.
Today was a trial day so the town was busy. We had a quick look around the town…. especially the Trevallian Area. Cheltenham is good for shoppers with some nicer antique, clothing and decor shops.There is the Holst Museum for those interested in music, and Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum. The Pittsville Pumproom sounded interesting but we ran out of time. It was time to head back to Oxford and on to the airport.
