  • Downton Abbey - Highclere Castle

    Highclere Castle - The film shoot location for Downton Abbey.

    This fantastic coach day trip takes you to Highclere Castle, Newbury to view the stunning landscapes and the great Egyptian Exhibition. Highclere Castle has been home to the Carnarvon family since 1679. Built on an ancient site, the original house was recorded in the Domesday Book.

    The present day Castle was designed in 1842 by Sir Charles Barry, the architect also responsible for building the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.

    The Castle's history also includes a fascinating connection with ancient Egypt, as the 5th Earl, with Howard Carter, discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. The Castle now houses an exhibition that commemorates this historic event, including some rare antiquities from the 5th Earl's earlier Egyptian excavations.

    Highclere Castle is now of course renowned as the film location for the hugely successful Downton Abbey. Longstanding friend of the Carnarvon family, Julian Fellowes had Highclere Castle in mind as he wrote Downton Abbey. He often commented he wanted a house which spectacularly testified to the confidence and soaring optimism of the Edwardian period.

    Includes return travel by coach and entrance to the castle and Egyptian exhibition.

    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 offer typical regional dishes of Bruges as well as exotic delicacies for different tastes and budgets.

    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.

  • Ham House National Trust & Richmond

    Richmond possesses a timeless charm more akin to a village than a town. Henry VII named Richmond after his favourite Earldom, Richmond in Yorkshire, and the gateway of his magnificent Palace, favoured by Elizabeth I, still remains. This can be found on Richmond Green, once the scene of tournaments and pageants, surrounded by elegant period houses. Richmond Bridge, the oldest spanning the Thames, sits alongside a riverside development which evokes memories of the 18th and 19th centuries. Richmond shopping centre offers an enticing mix, bringing together top designer names with small specialist and antiques shops. The view from the top of Richmond Hill, across the Terrace Gardens, Petersham meadows and the River Thames has been a source of inspiration for artists and poets throughout the years. It has been protected by an Act of Parliament since 1902. The Gardens were formed in the 1880s and were then extended to the river about 40 years later. The Terrace Gardens have recently been restored and are now a tranquil and relaxing area to enjoy. From here Ham House is visible slightly up river.

    One of a series of grand houses and palaces alongside the River Thames, Ham House and Garden impressed in its day and continues to do so today. One of London’s best kept secrets, this atmospheric Stuart mansion nestles on the banks of leafy Richmond-upon-Thames. Rich in history and atmosphere, it is mainly the vision of Elizabeth Murray, Countess of Dysart, who was deeply embroiled in the politics of the English Civil war and subsequent restoration of the monarchy. Through the centuries Ham has survived war, fashion and neglect to retain a uniquely mysterious aura. Some visitors even claim that it is haunted by the ghosts of its past residents. Today Ham House and Garden stand as one of Europe’s greatest 17th-century houses.  Explore the atmospheric house and its historic collection of textiles, furniture and paintings. Much of the collection has remained in the house for 400 years so you really feel you are stepping back in time. For more on Ham House, please click here.

    Price includes time in Richmond, entrance to Ham House and return coach travel. A travel only price is available for National Trust members and can be selected during the online booking process or when making a telephone booking.
