Coach Itinerary

Tour The Heart Of England And Bosworth Hall

Rutland Water cruise, Stamford & Oakham (full day)
Providing one of the most important wildfowl sanctuaries in the UK, Rutland Water is a large, horseshoe-shaped reservoir set within three thousand acres of beautiful English countryside on the borders of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. Look out for unique wildlife as we enjoy a relaxing cruise.

We then continue on to the picturesque market town of Stamford, widely regarded as one of the finest stone towns in England, with a variety of 17th and 18th-century stone buildings, older timber-framed buildings and no fewer than five medieval parish churches. Stamford has formed the backdrop for television costume drama Middlemarch and the 2005 film adaptation of Pride & Prejudice.

Our day concludes in Oakham, the county town of Rutland. This pretty, traditional market town boasts many historic landmarks including a Norman castle, unusual stocks and town pump as well as the renowned Oakham School which dates back to 1584. There is also an abundance of cafés, bars and stylish shops to visit.

Cadbury World & Birmingham narrow boat canal cruise (full day)
We uncover a host of chocolate delights at Cadbury World. With 14 amazing zones dedicated to chocolate, we discover the history, the making and the magic behind one of Britain's best loved brands; from the origins of the cocoa bean to the story behind the creation of the factory and Bournville village by the Cadbury brothers.

Afterwards we head to Birmingham where we enjoy a narrow boat canal cruise and take in some of the city’s sights from a different perspective before some free time to explore. Perhaps enjoy a spot of shopping at the iconic Bullring, visit the city’s library with its quirky architecture or enjoy free entrance to some fascinating exhibits at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Stratford-upon-Avon (full day)
For our final excursion, we spend some time in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birthplace and a busy, attractive town of timbered buildings, theatres and riverside parks. Fans of Shakespeare can visit the house in which he was born, and there’s a chance to wander the riverside gardens or discover the town’s theatres including the Swan Theatre, home of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
