THAMES VALLEY, WINDSOR & THE COTSWOLDS

Royal Berkshire and the Thames Valley are a treasure trove of glorious countryside and fine attractions, many of which are seated on the banks of Britain’s most famous river the Thames. A highlight of our tour is the beautiful Mapledurham House which is a welcome contrast to the bustling riverside towns.

The Best Western Reading Moat House Hotel resides in peaceful landscaped gardens on the banks of the River Lodden. After your day out you can enjoy a drink in the hotel’s own pub, the Poacher. All bedrooms have TV, telephone, hairdryer and hot drink facilities.

Itinerary

Thursday Departing in the morning we travel to the Best Western Reading Moat House Hotel.

Friday This morning we visit the regatta town of Henley-on-Thames. We then take a break here before continuing on our way through Marlow, with its famous suspension bridge, similar to the one linking Buda and Pest in Hungary. We then visit Royal Windsor and have time to explore the royal town.

Saturday Our destination today is the beautiful Cotswolds. We head for Burford for a short break before continuing on our way to Stow-on-the-Wold, a delightful town in the heart of the region. We have time to explore here and obtain lunch before a final gem, pretty Bourton-on-the-Water.

Sunday Your morning will be free to enjoy our surroundings, take a stroll along the scenic Thames path or the coach will take you into Reading. This afternoon we join the boat at Caversham Bridge for a Thames Cruise to Mapledurham. We include entry and guided tour of the beautiful Mapledurham House and 15th century working watermill. Marvel at the way the Thames forces the huge paddles to turn the wheel to grind the flour.

Monday After breakfast we begin our journey home to Cornwall and enjoy time for an early lunch in the attractive city of Bath.
