history lessons by train - the smart choice

Wrexham & Shropshire have teamed up with Glyndwr University to offer a really unique idea - history talks with a difference.

Travelling on-board the 07.23 Wrexham & Shropshire train from Wrexham to London Marylebone, Rod Playford presents a 2 hour session (conducted via headphones) on London's history covering;
  • Samuel Pepys' London,
  • Christopher Wren and the re-building of London after the Great Fire
  • How the Welsh Tudors shaped London
You then have the day to explore London complete with the knowledge you learned on the trip. The return train from Marylebone includes a free glass of wine and optional dinner.

The cost, including return travel from Wrexham to London, is £80.

It's a great little tie up and novel way to make your journey that little bit different. Just a shame the promo leaflet is a little lack-luster to say the least. With such an unusual event, you could have really gone to town with the idea.
