A sightseeing tour with many things of interest, based in Malvern, with the beautiful Malvern Hills overlooking the town. We include visits to Worcester as well as wine tasting and garden tours.
The setting for the ivy clad 4 star Abbey Hotel in Great Malvern is ideal, at the foot of the Malvern Hills, adjoining the fine Benedictine Priory in the heart of the town. This hotel scores highly with our guests who are assured of a warm welcome and a relaxing atmosphere together with the highest levels of comfort. All the comfortable bedrooms are furnished to a high standard, all are en-suite and have tea and coffee making facilities. This hotel does have a lift.
Monday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach then on through the heart of England via pretty Banbury and the scenic Vale of Evesham, where we make a stop, arriving late afternoon at the Abbey Hotel, Great Malvern. There will be time to settle in before dinner.
Tuesday After a full English breakfast, we head to the pretty town of Ledbury, famous for its many half-timbered houses. We continue to Hereford where we include a tasting and a tour at Weston’s Cider Visitor Centre followed by free time in the town centre. Our last stop takes us into the Welsh Marches and Leominster. This is a delightful place with medieval houses that look top heavy as the upstairs overhangs the ground floor, and lots of lovely little alleyways full of antique shops and cafes. We return to our hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Wednesday Today we visit Broadfield Court Gardens, set amongst 1000 Acre farming estate in the heart of Herefordshire, there is a café, vineyard and gardens. We spend time to explore before doing some wine tasting followed by tea and cakes. This afternoon there will be some free time in Malvern before dinner this evening.
Thursday After breakfast we head out to Ralph Court Gardens. Here there are 12 gardens set in the grounds of a gothic rectory. From Italy to Africa the gardens transport you around the world and beyond into a fantasy world. You will be mesmerised with the features and be surprised around every corner of the 3 acre garden. This afternoon we travel to Worcester where you have time to explore before heading back to the hotel for our final evening meal.
Friday Homeward bound this morning travelling by way of Tewkesbury and Stratford-upon-Avon, where we make a stop for refreshments. Stratford, as well as being the home of William Shakespeare, is worthy of a visit in its own right with colourful gardens and pleasant riverside walks. Late afternoon we return to our home area and waiting taxis.
