Day 2After a hearty breakfast, we travel to Leamington Spa for a morning visit and then to Warwick for the afternoon.
Royal Leamington Spa is an elegant town in the heart of rural Warwickshire with its tree lined avenues, squares and beautiful gardens. It was once just a tiny village, but the mineral springs here brought it fame and fortune around 1800. Stroll down the wide boulevards, admire the stunning architecture and pretty parks, and immerse yourself in this Regency town.
Warwick is famous for its castle, but there are many other hidden delights to be found in this beautiful town. Warwick and its historic buildings have featured in the BBC TV’s drama series ‘Dangerfield’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Tom Jones’ and Granada Television’s ‘Moll Flanders’. You may wish to take afternoon tea in one of the town’s tearooms or visit one of the many museums.
Day 3After a full English Breakfast, we bid farewell to our hotel and head to the lovely town of Stratford-upon-Avon, forever associated with William Shakespeare. It is a thriving market town on the banks of the River Avon, filled with lovely half-timbered buildings and scenic riverside walks.
