2018 sees the glorious cathedral city of Hereford play host to the Three Choirs Festival, a programme of choral and orchestral concerts, cathedral services, solo and chamber music recitals. It is the oldest non-competitive classical music festival in the world, having celebrated its 300th anniversary back in 2015. A hand-picked selection of concerts will offer an entertaining and stimulating addition to your weekend itinerary.

Self Drive Itinerary

Friday - Arrival & Evening Concert
Check-in at the hotel on this weekend break is from 3pm. After meeting our Tour Manager, we enjoy dinner together at the hotel.

Saturday - Scenic Drive to Leominster, Brockhampton Estate & Evening Concert
We board our coach for a scenic drive through the lovely Herefordshire countryside, time to sit back, relax and enjoy the passing views of the lush green landscape. We travel through the market town of Weobley before stopping for some free time in Leominster, situated in the heart of the Herefordshire Marches and famed for its medieval black and white buildings and antique shops.

The Brockhampton Estate consists of 1,700 acres of woodland and farmland set in the rolling Herefordshire hills. At the heart of the estate is Lower Brockhampton, a pretty timber-framed manor house dating back to the late 14th century, surrounded by a wide moat, orchards and gardens. Other highlights include the picturesque timber-framed gatehouse and the ruins of a Norman chapel.

This evening we enjoy our first concert in Hereford, time to sit back and savour some fine choral music.

Sunday - Croft Castle & Berrington Hall
We rejoin the coach and head to Croft Castle, home to the Croft family for almost a thousand years. The house’s exterior is an interesting blend of castle and country house, surrounded by historic woodland, farm and parkland, while the interior is a fine example of grand Georgian elegance.

From here we go to Berrington Hall, an exquisite 18th-century mansion with commanding views over ‘Capability’ Brown-designed parkland and beyond to the wilderness of the Brecon Beacons. The Hall is one of the few masterpieces of the architect Henry Holland to survive intact and highlights of the jewel-like interiors include Biaggio Rebecca ceilings and fine period furniture.

In the evening, we head back into Hereford for an inspiring choral concert, a fitting finale to our weekend.

Monday - Departure
After breakfast, we check out of the hotel for our journey home.

Please note: This tour includes tickets to selected Three Choirs Festival concerts. Additional tickets for concerts may be purchased at an additional cost on the day, subject to availability.
