Warwick journeys around Britain


Weekend Escapes with Warwick Davis, Friday, April 17, ITV, 8pm

What’s It All About? Following a busy year, the eponymous actor and presenter is back with a second run of his successful travel show.

Warwick Davis will be taking his family on more mini-breaks across Britain and driving their campervan to some of the nation’s most famous holiday spots.

In episode one he finds out whether the Midlands can give St Tropez a run for its money.

First stop is the Peak District, where Warwick is stranded 40ft up a pole during a stint with Derbyshire Mountain Rescue.

After that, the Davises surprise him with a trip to the Vacuum Cleaner Museum in Heanor, and eventually they visit the Black Country Living Museum in full Victorian garb.

Look Out For: A future trip to South Wales in which the family visit the UK’s smallest city, St David’s; hang out with a group of Viking re-enactors and menace the local population on a raid.

Warwick will also morph into Bear Grylls, teach the family how to survive wild in the woods, join in with the World Alternative Games and sing along with a male voice choir.
