HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Polesden Lacey   |   Denbies Wine Estate   |   Brookland Museum   |    Painshill   |   Hampton Court   |    Thames River Cruise

 

 

DAY ONE - Arrival

We depart from your home, join your tour coach and travel to Surrey with comfort stops en route.  Arrive at your hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO – Polesden Lacey and Denbies Wine Estate

Our day starts with a visit to Polesden Lacey, the perfect Edwardian retreat where the Queen Mother spent her honeymoon.  With glorious views across the rolling Surrey Hills it was home to the famous Edwardian hostess, Mrs Greville, who entertained royalty and the celebrities of her time.  With a glittering Gold Saloon designed to impress Kings and Maharajahs and an extensive collection of art and ceramics ranging from world-famous Dutch old masters to sparkling Faberge objects, the house is a treat to explore.

 

In the afternoon we visit Denbies Wine Estate where we enjoy a classic wine tasting tour, starting with an introductory video in the indoor cinema before we pass through the working winery with our guide, finishing with a guided tasting of Denbies classic wine.

 

DAY THREE – Brooklands Museum

We visit Brooklands Museum today, the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation and the home of Concorde.  Opened in 1907, Brooklands is steeped in history and has spawned many great pioneers, drivers, aviators and engineers.  Highlights include the museum, which features the Aircraft Factory and charts the history of aircraft manufacture, with aircraft displays, sheds, structures, and monuments to explore; there is much to see here.

 

DAY FOUR – Hampton Court, Thames River Cruise and Painshill

This morning, we visit Hampton Court Palace, a jewel amongst English palaces. Highlights include the vast Tudor kitchens, the Great Hall and sumptuous state and private apartments. Surrounded by beautiful gardens featuring parterres and fountains, the palace is also home to the world’s oldest maze, planted over 300 years ago. From the palace, we embark on a short river cruise to Kingston upon Thames, from where we rejoin our coach for a visit to Painshill, England’s most elegant 18th century landscape garden. On arrival, we enjoy refreshments before a guided introductory tour taking in the stunning garden landscape then gain exclusive access into the sparkling Crystal Grotto.

 

DAY FIVE - Departure

After a leisurely breakfast we depart the hotel for our return journey home with refreshment stops en route.
