Great Cathedral Cities of England
26th - 30th October
5 Day Breaks
Gloucester, Winchester and Bath. Three great Cathedral cities of England and we visit all three in one exciting holiday. Each offers something a little different to the other, be that Bath’s Ancient Roman heritage, the historic dockyards of Gloucester or some of the best architecture of Britain in Winchester.
Thursday We depart Lincolnshire in the morning taking comfort stops en-route to our hotel.
Friday Today’s excursion takes us to the unspoilt medieval city of Winchester, England’s Ancient capital. You will find something for everyone here with the country’s largest farmers market, streets steeped in history and new architecture all surrounded by majestic English countryside. Afterwards we jump aboard the Watercress Line from Alresford. This will be the perfect way to unwind and experience the nostalgic sights, sounds and smells of steam travel from a bygone age.
Saturday Today we head north through the glorious Cotswolds to our second Cathedral City, Gloucester. Here we find England’s most inland port which boasts over 2000 years of history and has seen unprecedented regeneration, most notably around its historic docks. Explore its streets at your leisure before we visit the National Waterway Museum for an intriguing and relaxing cruise along the Gloucester and Sharpness canal accompanied by running commentary.
Sunday Our final day’s excursion takes us to a city so beautiful and unique, it has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site, Bath. Creative, stylish and tranquil, Bath is England’s most complete Georgian City and offers great boutique shopping, and iconic visitor attractions which are guaranteed to delight. Explore its streets at your leisure and be sure to visit its famous Roman Baths for a taste of the city’s ancient spa culture.
Monday Sadly it is time to begin our journey home. We depart our hotel in the morning taking comfort stops en-route back to Lincolnshire.
