Description

Coach

Turkey & Tinsel Christmas Break at Bosworth Hall Hotel

Day 1
After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in. 

Day 2 – Stamford & Oakham
We visit 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, secret alleyways peppered with alehouses 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.

We continue to Oakham, the county town of Rutland. This pretty, traditional market town boasts many historic landmarks including a Norman castle, unusual stocks and town pump beneath the Butter Cross as well as the renowned Oakham School which dates back to 1584. There’s also an abundance of eateries and stylish shops to visit. Later we enjoy a traditional ‘Christmas’ dinner with all the trimmings back at the hotel.


Day 3 – Lincoln
Rising out of the flat Fenlands with one of England’s finest cathedrals as its crown, Lincoln is a compact city with a well-preserved medieval quarter and a tangle of quaint cobbled streets. We spend the day at leisure here with time to explore the pretty lanes and admire the beautiful buildings including Lincoln Castle, home to one of only four surviving copies of the Magna Carta.

Day 4 – Optional excursion to Stratford-upon-Avon (£10pp)
Our optional excursion takes us to Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birthplace and a busy, attractive Tudor town of timbered buildings, riverside parks and, of course, theatres. Fans of the Bard 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.

Day 5
After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
