HIGHLIGHTS

 

Guided Tour of Shuttleworth   |  The Silverstone Experience   |   Stowe   |   Didcot Railway Centre    |   Oxford

 

A new tour of Northampton which features fantastic planes, trains and automobiles – featuring a guided tour of impressive Shuttleworth and its collection of vintage aircraft and veteran vehicles, a visit to the famous Didcot Railway Centre and a trip to the new Silverstone Experience which tells the fascinating stories and engineering innovation of the motor racing world.  We also feature the beautiful gardens at Stowe and an afternoon in Oxford, the city of dreaming spires so buckle up and join us on an exhilarating journey!

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home as we begin your holiday with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel to Stratford-upon-Avon for lunch before continuing to our hotel in Northampton.  Tea/coffee awaits you on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

We spend today at Shuttleworth where you will enjoy a guided tour of the impressive Shuttleworth Collection of aircraft and vehicles, the collection opened to the public in 1963 and contains vintage aircraft, veteran vehicles, classic motorcycles, veteran bicycles and agricultural exhibits.  Housed in six large hangars, Shuttleworth is home to a fascinating living, working collection of transport history.

Adjacent to the aerodrome that houses the collection is the Swiss Garden which recreates landscapes in a picturesque alpine style, peaceful and tranquil, the garden is a delight to explore, featuring 13 listed structures, a woodland sculpture trail and a resident peacock.

 

DAY THREE

This morning we make our way to the famous Silverstone Race Circuit and its new attraction – The Silverstone Experience.  Housed within the only remaining WW11 Willington Bomber hangar at the entrance to Silverstone, the exhibition features state of the art interactive displays telling the fascinating stories of human endeavour, great sporting rivalries and engineering innovation.  Our visit will end with the thrill of speeding around Silverstone alongside racing heroes in an immersive show ‘The Ultimate Lap of Silverstone’ with commentary by Murray Walker. 

 

In the afternoon we enjoy a relaxing visit to the beautiful gardens at Stowe, the scale and beauty of which have attracted visitors for over 300 years, picture-perfect views, winding paths, lakeside walks and temples create a timeless landscape reflecting the changing seasons.

 

DAY FOUR

Today we spend the morning at the famous Didcot Railway Centre, the living museum of the Great Western Railway, see the largest collection of locomotives from any one railway company and where in the world, learn how signalling has developed since the earliest days of railways in the new Signalling Centre.  See the turntable, visit the 1932 Engine Shed and enjoy a ride on one of the locomotives (locomotive running roster is subject to change).  We spend the afternoon in Oxford, with time at leisure to explore this famous city of dreaming spires and world famous attractions.

 

DAY FIVE

After a leisurely breakfast, we depart our hotel and begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
