Itinerary

  • DAY 1 Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Make your own way to the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon today, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.On arrival at your centrally located hotel, settle into your comfortable room and then make your way to the private lounge bar, where we've arranged a welcome drink. Gather once more with your fellow travellers over dinner this evening. You could stroll into town later if you wish. The medieval half-timbered buildings look even more delightful when lit up for the festive season.
  • DAY 2 New Year's Eve Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Today you'll head off on a tour of Stratford-upon-Avon in the company of a Local Guide. Your first stop is William Shakespeare's birthplace, a low-ceilinged, half-timbered house. Inside you can enter the parlour, hall, workshop and bedchambers, all of which are furnished as they would have been back in the 16th century. In this fantastic setting you'll also enjoy a warming glass of mulled wine. Next, take a walk along the promenade next to the River Avon to see the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church, where Shakespeare is buried. Your tour comes to an end at Anne Hathaway's Cottage. This thatched farmhouse, where the young Shakespeare courted his future bride, contains many original items of furniture. Back at the hotel there's time to get ready for tonight's New Year's Eve celebration, which starts with a complimentary Champagne reception. You'll then head to the restaurant for a delicious 4-course dinner, which is followed by dancing until the early hours and a glass of fizz at midnight.
  • DAY 3 New Year's Day Warwick Castle
  • ​Enjoy breakfast at leisure before heading out on an included trip to Warwick Castle, built in 1068 on the orders of William the Conqueror. You can journey back more than 1,000 years as you wander along the battlements and explore the interior of one of the most complete medieval fortresses in Britain. Entertainment is also put on in the grounds of the castle too, with the incredible birds of prey display one of its most popular highlights. Spend the evening at leisure back at your hotel, and perhaps take a stroll into town after dinner.
  • DAY 4 Stratford-upon-Avon
