I have had a request to set up a German Group for Beginners.
If you are interested in such a group please contact me at the email address below stating if you have any knowledge of the language and to what level.
If there is enough interest I will follow our procedure for forming the group.

Seats still available.
We will leave Trowbridge early, first pick up is 7am. Firstly we will visit Lichfield Cathedral for about 1.5hrs. Leaving time for coffee and a self guided tour of the cathedral or town. Secondly we will then proceed to the National Memorial Arboretum in time for lunch – which can be pre-booked. The Arboretum is a 150 acre site to over 350 thought provoking memorials covering both military and civilian associations. It features around 30,000 trees and is home to a variety of flora and fauna. It has lots to see and plenty to explore. The Land Train which has a pre-recorded, running commentary is included in the cost. The tour lasts approx. 50mins.

Cost for this trip: Coach & Land train plus Drivers tip £14.00

It is important that you are at your pick up point on time. Do not change it without prior agreement with the Trip Leader. I suggest you pack snacks and water as this will be a long day. We will make a comfort stop both ways.
