Itinerary

Description

Join us as we discover some of the most beautiful highlights in the heart of England. Enjoy a cruise amidst scenic countryside, marvel at a mighty medieval fortress, wander through inspiring gardens, explore Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon and take a journey of remembrance at the peaceful National Memorial Arboretum.

Itinerary

Warwick Castle & Warwick (full day)
We head to the historic town of Warwick to visit Warwick Castle, one of the most well-preserved medieval castles in Britain, which has stood for the last 1,100 years. Behind the mighty walls lie grand interiors such as the Great Hall and lavish State Rooms while the atmospheric dungeon brings to life some of the darkest and bloodiest times in the castle’s history.

After our castle visit, we have free time to explore the town of Warwick with its enticing blend of old and new; from gift shops, antiques centres and art galleries to traditional tea rooms, cafés and pubs.

Barnsdale Gardens & Rutland Water cruise (full day)
We start the day with a visit to Barnsdale Gardens, created by the late BBC Gardeners’ World presenter, Geoff Hamilton in the 1980s. Referred to as ‘a theme park for gardeners’, the 38 individual garden ‘rooms’ offer an inspiring range ofhorticultural styles and planting schemes, all built on organic principles. These include a Japanese Garden, Wildlife Garden, Ornamental Kitchen Garden, Artisan’s Cottage Garden and much more! There’s also a gift shop and tea room to enjoy.

From here we travel the short distance to Rutland Water, one of the most important wildfowl sanctuaries in the UK. This large, horseshoe-shaped reservoir is set within 3,000 acres of beautiful countryside and we have the chance to enjoy the scenery and look out for the unique wildlife on a relaxing cruise aboard the Rutland Belle.


National Memorial Arboretum & Stratford-upon-Avon (full day)
The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance. This evolving, mature woodland landscape features 30,000 trees and a vast collection of memorials; a peaceful and beautiful place to remember lives lost. We explore the 150-acre site with a 50-minute journey by land train, which provides us with lovely views across the landscape and introduces us to some of the thought-provoking memorials. After our train ride, we have free time at leisure.

Next, 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.
