This exciting new tour takes us to the beautiful region of Hampshire where we enjoy the character of the surrounding towns. We stay at a luxury 4 star hotel which makes for an ideal base, as well as a visit to Windsor for perhaps the highlight of our tour, a scenic water cruise.
The 4 star luxury hotel is ideally situated on the outskirts of Bassingstoke. Facilities include an extensive Health & Leisure Club with an inviting spa and two indoor swimming pools. The hotel has 90 en-suite bedrooms all featuring a TV, hairdryer, telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. There is a lift to all floors.
Thursday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive to the Hampshire Court Hotel. We arrive at the 4 star hotel mid afternoon with time to relax before dinner.
Friday This morning we enjoy a drive to the historic town of Winchester. Here we can visit the cities cathedral, explore the high street or perhaps visit one of the many museums. Later this afternoon we head into the South Downs National Park where we visit Petersfield, a quaint market town with a variety of local shops as well as a museum and art gallery.
Saturday Our day begins with a visit to Henley-on-Thames where we have time at leisure for exploration and lunch. This afternoon we visit the Georgian Mansion of Basildon Park, an estate saved from almost certain demolition. The building has now been lovingly revived with its own wooded parkland which offers glorious seasonal colour.
SundayWe travel to Royal Windsor where the morning is yours to visit the shops and obtain lunch. This afternoon we make our way to the promenade where we join a riverboat which gently takes us up steam to Boveney Lock, returning to the promenade with fantastic views of Windsor Castle, Eton College and Mill House. We return to the hotel for our final evening’s dinner.
Monday After breakfast we bid farewell to our hosts and head for home, arriving in our home areas late afternoon after a delightful holiday.
