  • Houses of Parliament & Afternoon Tea

    Discover a unique combination of 1000 years of the UK's history, modern day politics and stunning art and architecture within one iconic building.

    Our insightful and entertaining guided tour of the Houses of Parliament offers the opportunity to discover the fascinating blend of history and politics that lie within one of the most instantly recognisable buildings in the world. Also known as the Palace of Westminster, 1000 years ago it was the official residence of the English royal family. The oldest part of the building is Westminster Hall which was completed in 1097 and has held a central role in British history since then. The majority of the original palace was destroyed by fire in 1834 and the magnificent Gothic-Revival building which now stands, majestically, in its place was designed by Sir Charles Barry and completed in 1870. While the outside of the building is well known, the guided tours allow visitors to discover the many treasures within the building such as the spectacular fixtures and fittings designed by the eccentric A.W.N. Pugin, including the wonderful throne in the majestic Lords Chamber, and a rich collection of works of art. Led by a highly qualified and knowledgeable Blue Badge Guide, the 90 minute tour takes in the Lords and Commons Chambers plus other highlights such as Westminster Hall, the Queen's Robing Room, the Royal Gallery, Aye Lobby, Central Lobby, Members' Lobby and St Stephen's Hall. Jubilee Cafe, located next to Westminster Hall, offers a selection of light meals, and hot and cold drinks. The souvenir shop is located along the tour route.

    Airport style searches are in place at the Houses of Parliament. Sharp items e.g. knives (including Swiss army knives) scissors, cutlery and screwdrivers are not permitted on the parliamentary estate and will be confiscated. Please also restrict the size of bags brought to Parliament.

  • Southport Winter Special

    A winter getaway by coach from Kent to the fine resort of Southport in Lancashire, where we stay full board at the Best Western Royal Clifton, with a free bar every evening up to 9pm.

    On our outward journey we will aim to leave Maidstone at around 9am to allow us a pause for lunch near Warwick before we press on to our destination in the afternoon.

    The hotel will greet us with tea and coffee on arrival before we settle-in to enjoy facilities which include an indoor pool.  

    During our stay we enjoy full cooked breakfast and a three-course evening meal with three choices each course plus a vegetarian option.  Tea and coffee follows dinner, and on two of our nights the hotel will offer entertainment.

    Southport has long been regarded as Merseyside’s premier resort.  200 years ago it would have been unrecognisable from today as a sparsely populated settlement in the sand dunes that line this stretch of coast, but at the turn of the 19th century the area became popular with visitors drawn to the coast to escape the hardships of the industrial revolution, and so it followed that Southport emerged as a favourite Victorian resort.  Town attractions include the Grade II listed Southport Pier with its tramway, the second longest seaside pleasure pier in the UK;  and Lord Street, an elegant tree-lined shopping street, once home of Napoleon III of France.  Our hotel is perfectly situated on the Promenade and within easy walking distance of Lord Street, the Wayfarers Arcade, Marine Lake, Princes Park, and the pier.

    On Tuesday we give ourselves the morning free in Southport before a hot lunch at the hotel, then for the afternoon we hop on the coach for the short journey to Southport’s botanical gardens on the outskirts of town.

    Originally opened in 1874, these Victorian gardens are of all-year round interest, with a delightful maze of walks through the gardens and alongside the lake.  There’s also a Victorian fernery, aviary, gift shop and café, so plenty to see and explore.

    For Wednesday we enjoy a relaxed breakfast before setting off mid-morning for Liverpool where we make our first call at the magnificent Liverpool Cathedral.  Rated Trip Advisor’s No 1 place to visit in Liverpool, the cathedral is free to enter although they do encourage donations, and if you like you can pay a few pounds for the “Tower Experience”.  This includes an audio-guided introduction to the cathedral and a trip up to the top of the tower, via two lifts most of the way BUT there are then 108 steps and you don’t get the spectacular views unless you go all the way to the top!  We will give ourselves 90 minutes or so to savour the cathedral before we continue, to set down in the rejuvenated docks area which offers many attractions. 

     

    Rejuvenated Liverpool - Liverpool Pier Head, with the Royal Liver Building, Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building, and the Anglican cathedral in the background

    The restored dockland area itself makes for a very pleasant stroll, and points of interest include the scenic ferris wheel, the Beatles Story Exhibition, the Tate Liverpool and the Mersey Maritime Museum.  Continuing northwards along the waterfront it is no great walking distance to the Museum of Liverpool, the Open Eye photography gallery, and the Royal Liver Building. 

    We leave Thursday free to relax and enjoy Southport, where we should also flag the Southport Theatre and Atkinson Theatre, both of which are close to the hotel.  At the timing of writing this tour description the respective theatre programmes are not decided, but we will try to have that information available on board the coach so that you have the chance to book locally if there is a show you would like to see.

    On Friday it’s time to bid farewell to our hosts at the Best Western but to make the most of our travelling day we make a quite prompt start aiming to enjoy a couple of hours spanning lunchtime in the Oxfordshire market town of Banbury, where we include lunch in our package.  We expect to be back in Kent just ahead of the peak-hour build-up.

     

    Our Hotel

    The 3* Best Western Royal Clifton Hotel in Southport is a traditionally spacious and elegant Victorian building set on the town's promenade, with fine views out across the King's Gardens and marine lake and shoreline beyond.  Guest facilities include indoor pool, free wi-fi in public rooms, and a coffee shop.  All rooms are en suite and there is a lift serving all floors.  All rooms have TV with cable or satellite channels, radio, coffee-tea maker, hairdryer, trouser press and iron/ironing board.

    Our meal plan includes cooked breakfast, single course hot lunch, and 3-choice 3-course evening meal with tea or coffee to follow, and there is a free bar from 6-9pm covering a range of beers, wines and spirits plus soft drinks.

     

    Departure from Kent

    Anyone from further afield please feel welcome to join us on this or any other Buzzlines tour.  We are happy to arrange free parking for you here in Kent, or we will pick you up from Ashford International Station – only 37 minutes by HS1 from London St Pancras – and help you to find overnight hotel or B&B stops if needed.  Our pick-up options can include the Holiday Inn at Rochester Airport for anyone who would like to stay and park there ahead of departure.  And we will be happy to meet anyone able to join us at one of the service stations around the southern section of the M25 or along the M40.

  • Bruges

    This wonderful coach day trip takes you to one of Europe's most beautiful and best-preserved medieval cities, with something to see at every turn.

    Not many people realise that the historic Belgian town of Bruges, or Brugge in Flemish, is in fact within easy driving distance from Calais to make an ideal day trip destination. Bruges has been called "The Venice of the North" due to its canal-lined streets and stunning architecture. It is easy to explore on foot, by horse-drawn carriage or canal cruiser. Tempting Belgian chocolates, beautiful hand-made lace and world-famous beers make Bruges one of our most popular destinations.

    Bruges boasts a rich cultural heritage. The majestic past of Bruges lives on in the many works of art that can be seen in the many museums, often housed in historic buildings. The many places of interest, too, are silent witnesses to the city’s rich heritage. Bruges has a lot to offer from a culinary perspective too. Many restaurants, cafes and bars offer typical regional dishes of Bruges as well as exotic delicacies for different tastes and budgets. Trip Advisor may be able to help you choose a suitable venue.

    Normally a minimum of 4 hours in Bruges subject to travel time. So as to preserve its unique heritage for locals and visitors alike,coaches are not allowed into the inner city. We therefore park at the coach park which is a flat, leisurely 20 minute walk to the main city centre or closeby there is a bus stop where a frequent bus service runs to and from the city centre.

    Price includes return travel by coach and scheduled Eurotunnel crossing.

    PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE NO STOPS AT ANY WAREHOUSES, SUPERMARKETS OR OTHER OUTLETS SCHEDULED TO BE INCLUDED ON THIS TRIP.

  • Boulogne Sur Mer

    We head for our scheduled Eurotunnel crossing which takes around 35 minutes from Folkestone to Calais. Then on arrival in France, we take the short drive to Boulogne-Sur-Mer at the heart of the Côte d'Opale. Boulogne is an enjoyable town to visit with a charming French ambience and a vast architectural and historical heritage, which has earned it the title of City of Art and History.

    The old town is built on the site of a Roman camp, and kept its original size and road layout. The fortifications and the castle (now a museum) surrounding the old town, are some of the best preserved examples of medieval architecture in France. The belfry located just next to the town hall, has been on UNESCO's prestigious list of world heritage sites since 2005. Going up Rue de Lille, you come to the Basilica of Notre Dame, the most prominent building in the old town with its 83-metre dome. It was built in the 19th century by Abbot Benoît-Agathon Haffreingue and has a stunning altar, produced in the workshops of the Vatican, made from 147 different types of marble and ornamental stone. The impressive medieval crypt, the largest in Northern Europe, sits beneath the Basilica and contains medieval frescos and sculptures.

    To the lower side of the fortified old town you will  find the Rue Guyale, in ancient times the port’s trading centre. Rue Guyale leads towards the Valentine Hugo gardens, named after the French painter who was born in Boulogne’s Capecure neighbourhood in 1887.   Valentine was the great grand-daughter of Victor Hugo and her talents brought her widespread recognition.
