The honey-coloured picture postcard Cotswolds are one of the prettiest rural areas in England and our tour takes in visits to the famous Morgan Motor Company and the flamboyant Painswick Rococo Gardens but the highlight of the tour is our visit to HRH Prince of Wales private gardens Highgrove.

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our home pick-up and join your tour coach and travel south, with comfort stops enroute, arriving at your hotel late afternoon, tea/coffee on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room,  time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

We spend the morning at the magnificent Morgan Motor Company where we enjoy a guided tour of the factory, watching skilled craftsmen at work as they hand make the famous Morgan bespoke sports cars.  In the afternoon we visit the timber-framed village of Ledbury where we explore its Heritage Centre, Butchers Row Folk Museum and the Painted Room leading to the fine Parish Church.

 

DAY THREE

Today we explore the medieval town of Tewkesbury in its picturesque riverside setting, attractions include ‘Out of the Hat’, an exquisite example of a 17th century home and shop that now houses a Heritage Centre, Tewkesbury Museum and Abbey.  After lunch we travel to Gloucester where we spend free time exploring its medieval Cathedral or perhaps visit the Victorian docks and the award- winning Gloucester Waterways Museum overlooking the River Severn.

 

DAY FOUR

Today we enjoy a guided tour of the Royal Gardens at Highgrove (subject to confirmation and available dates – confirmation available February 2020), the private residence of HRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.  Led by an expert guide, you are provided with a unique insight into family life on the estate and tales of how HRH has crafted each organic garden from scratch.  In the afternoon we visit the sole surviving Rococo Garden of Painswick positioned in a hidden valley offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside featuring intriguing garden buildings.
