Downton & Kew at Easter Itinerary
Friday We leave in the morning and travel to Reading enjoying a break for lunch. We arrive at our hotel later in the afternoon to a welcome hot drink.
Saturday Our day begins at Highclere Castle, known to most of us as the impressive ‘Downton Abbey’. The ancestral seat of the Carnarvon family has hosted kings, queens, and prime ministers and thanks to its time on our screens, the Victorian-era house became a full-blown prime-time star. There will be time to tour the state rooms and enjoy the gardens and grounds. Later we visit the idyllic market town of Newbury.
Sunday A relaxed Easter Sunday as we stroll the beautiful Kew Gardens. Housing the world’s most diverse collection of living plants, this is London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also a world-leading scientific research centre. From glasshouses to different climate zones and trees and plants of all types from across the globe, a day here gives plenty of time to see this amazing collection at our own pace.
Monday After breakfast, we leave our hotel and head for the beautiful city of Salisbury, which has the largest Cathedral green in the UK. After time to enjoy this lovely location we begin our homeward journey.
