DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel south to Essex with comfort stops enroute.  Arrive at our hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

After a leisurely breakfast we travel south to visit the Roman city of St Albans and at the city’s historic core you will find the stunning Cathedral which dates to 1077.  This afternoon we visit the Royal Air Force Museum, home to over 85 aircraft and a wide variety of exhibitions and interesting things to see and do.  Explore the hangers and marvel at the technology from over the past hundred years.

 

DAY THREE

Our excursion today takes us to the seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea, here you can enjoy traditional seaside fun in the shape of award winning beaches, the world famous Pier and its mile long railway, plus of course all the amusement arcades and the popular fountains on City Beach.  This afternoon we visit RHS Garden Hyde Hall to enjoy one of the finest gardens in the East of England, its location among rolling hills and fantastic panoramic views can often surprise visitors to this beautiful and unique area.

 

DAY FOUR

This morning we journey to Cambridge where we can spend the day in this beautiful university city, perhaps visit the Grand Arcade for a spot of shopping or just wander the streets and marvel at the beautiful buildings and architecture that surrounds you.  We leave Cambridge and journey to Wimpole Estate which boasts an impressive Mansion, Gardens and Home Farm, intimate rooms contrast with beautiful and unexpected Georgian interiors.  Perhaps stroll around the colourful parterre garden and wander through the Pleasure Grounds to the walled garden.  Home Farm contrasts the traditional farmyard with the noisy modern piggery and cattle sheds.
