Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Soar Valley Tour (A Coach Trip in Leicestershire)

[An image showing Soar Valley Tour]"Soar Valley Tour" is a Coach Trip devised and led by Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours. It is one of the morning trips, leaving at 9.30am and returning about 2pm.

These trips are an enjoyable way of soaking up some Local History. The morning trips are especcially appreciated by those who do not wish to be out all day.

The coach will be leaving from St. Margarets Bus Station in Leicester City Centre.

The format for these morning trips is that one stays on the coach almost all the time, while Colin gives a commentary. However, about halfway around, usually about 11.30am, there is a stop, where coffee, cakes etc can be bought.

The River Soar flows through Leicestershire, South to North, and eventually joins the River Trent not far from Nottingham.

It flows through Leicester, and close to some delightful villages such as Barrow-upon-Soar, Mountsorrel, Quorn and Sileby, as well as the major town of Loughborough.

It also acts as a natural boundary between the volcanic crags of Charnwood Forest and the gentle uplands of the Leicestershire Wolds.
