Day One

We travel to the enchanting Cotswolds and spend some time in picturesque Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ with beautiful bridges crossing the tranquil River Windrush. We then continue to the Hilton Reading and check-in.


Day Two

We spend the day in Windsor where there will be time at leisure to explore this delightful market town set in a glorious location on the Thames. You might like to visit the magnificent castle which was founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th century and is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. Windsor also offers great shopping, beautiful parks and gardens, riverside walks and boat cruises plus an excellent range of cafes and restaurants.

Day Three

Today we visit historic Winchester, the former capital of England with fine architecture and charming waterside trails to explore. Popular for its bustling shopping streets and thriving contemporary arts scene, Winchester is best-known for its eleventh century Cathedral and the Great Hall which for over 700 years has housed the mysterious King Arthur's Round Table. Winchester College is the oldest continuously running school in the country and has been used as a location to film a number of blockbusters such as Harry Potter and Les Misérables.
