HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

National Memorial Arboretum   |   Calke Abbey   |   Bolsover Castle      

 

On this Easter tour we have included a varied and interesting selection of inclusions; you’ll take home plenty of fabulous memories of this beautiful part of England.

 

 

DAY ONE - Good Friday

We depart from your own front door, join your tour coach and travel to Derbyshire with comfort stops enroute.  Arrive at your hotel mid-afternoon when you can enjoy a chocolate cream tea, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO - Easter Saturday

Our excursion today takes us to the National Memorial Arboretum; this 150 acre site is home to over 330 thought provoking memorials covering both military and civilian associations, along with tributes to individuals.  Rich in design and symbolism and sympathetic to the gardens they inhabit the memorials and their stories are fascinating. 

 

This afternoon we visit Calke Abbey, the house where time stood still, vividly portraying a period in the 12th century when many country houses did not survive to tell their story.  Rather than restoring Calke to its former glory, they have undertaken necessary repairs to halt the decay of the house and its collections.  As you wander through the mansion you will discover abandoned rooms, peeling wallpaper and a vast collection of strange and unique objects presented exactly how they were found.

 

DAY THREE - Easter Sunday

Today we travel to Bolsover Castle with spectacular views over Derbyshire, the fairy-tale Stuart Mansion was designed to entertain and impress.  Wander the lavish rooms of the Little Castle, explore the romantic ruined terrace range, and delight in the views from the wall walk.  We travel back to the hotel for a 3-course carvery lunch and the rest of the afternoon is at leisure.  Light buffet dinner tonight.

 

DAY FOUR - Easter Monday

This morning after breakfast we depart our hotel and begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
