Friday We depart in the morning from your local area and enjoy a stop on route in Windsor if time allows, where you will have time at leisure. We'll rejoin the coach and continue on to your 4 star hotel for your 3–course dinner and overnight stay.
Saturday After a full English breakfast our coach will transfer you to Hampton Court Palace. There are hundreds of the UK's best nurseries in the floral marquees, plus concept gardens galore. You can even grow your own royal plants using seeds taken directly from Buckingham Palace Gardens. Your ticket is for the grounds only, but if you'd like to explore the Palace interior you can do that too, for a supplement of £20. By the time we set off for dinner and our second night's stay at the hotel you'll find all sorts of ideas have taken root and started to sprout.
Sunday Breakfast, and then our coach will transfer you to RHS Wisley for your morning visit. Wisley is undoubtedly one of the great gardens of the world. Explore seven acres of plant lover's paradise with varied beds, two ponds, wild grassy areas, a woodland garden and not forgetting a glasshouse the size of ten tennis courts and home to a variety of exotic plants. In the afternoon we'll transfer into central London for some free time to explore some of those famous monuments, museums and historic sites that in London are practically one street in any direction. We'll return you to the hotel in good time for dinner and your final nights' stay.
Monday Fortified by a full English breakfast, we travel to Oxford where you will have several hours' free time to explore and enjoy some lunch. This is the seat of the oldest university in the English–speaking world. Many of the 38 colleges are open to visitors and often charge no fee. Magdalen, with cloisters and a tower which dominates the High Street, is always open; Jesus is famous for its wisteria; Brasenose for its gardens; the Great Hall of Christ Church inspired Hogwarts Hall in the Harry Potter films; Queen's has a clutch of medieval cottages; Merton has a haunted library... We will re–join the coach after lunch for the final leg of the journey home.
