We travel to our hotel via the beautiful Cotswolds. Leaving the motorway at Worcester we enjoy a beautiful drive through the Vale of Evesham and enjoy our lunch stop in the pretty town of Evesham. Our journey then continues through the Cotswolds, passing through Broadway and Stow on the Wold to Bourton on the Water where we enjoy a stop off before continuing to our hotel via Cirencester
A beautiful day out today as we head firstly to 'Castle Combe' known as being the prettiest village in England and you may recognise it from the many films in which it features. The village houses are all of typical Cotswold type, constructed in stone with thick walls and roofs made from split natural stone tiles. We then continue to the beautiful City of Bath to spend the remainder of the afternoon exploring the pretty streets and stunning buildings
After a leisurely breakfast we enjoy a scenic drive to Blenheim Palace, where entrance to the Palace, Park & Gardens is included. Blenheim was the gift of Queen Anne to the 1st Duke of Marlborough in 1704 and has been home to the Dukes of Marlborough ever since and Winston Churchill was born here. The rooms in the Palace are spectacular, as are the gardens, grounds and views. Spend you time exploring before leaving mid afternoon for our journey back to Poplar Services for approx. 6pm.
