Friday We depart and travel to the Cotswolds and the quintessentially English villages of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water. The Cotswolds are home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous towns and villages in England. We depart later this afternoon for the journey to Swindon and the Jurys Inn Swindon. This evening enjoy a three course evening meal.
Saturday Today we include a visit to Longleats iconic Wiltshire estate. We will include a drive through the amazing safari park, but the highlight of the day will be the spectacular festival of light. Europe’s largest ever display of Chinese lanterns will once again transform Longleat into a glowing winter wonderland with thousands of lanterns.
The scenic drive through the safari park will not include the monkey enclosure.
Sunday Following breakfast, we travel home via Oxford, the City of Dreaming Spires. Steeped in a rich and fascinating history, Oxford is famous for its prestigious university and is home to 38 colleges where
many notable scholars have emerged. Its charming scenery has been the inspiration for many including Lewis Carroll and JRR Tolkien. We depart later this afternoon to make our journey home.
