Windsor and Secrets of the Thames Valley

Windsor and the Secrets of The Thames Valley

13th July - 15th July (2 Nights)

 

Day 1

Cruise on the River Thames

After we leave Bristol we'll make our way to Windsor.

Once there you'll have time for lunch before we enjoy a relaxing

40-minute circular cruise on the River Thames in the afternoon.

 

Day 2

Waterperry Gardens and Nuffield Place

This morning we start our discovery of the secrets of the

Thames Valley with a visit to Waterperry Gardens,

made famous by Beatrix Havergal who established her

School of Horticulture for Ladies there from 1932 to 1971.

Today, Waterperry is best known for its eight acres of beautifully

landscaped ornamental gardens. But this isn’t just any garden

attraction. There’s a fascinating museum, gallery, tea shop,

plant centre and garden shop.

In the afternoon we visit Nuffield Place, an unpretentious 1930s Art Deco-style

house, and one of the National Trust’s most unusual properties.

It was the home of William Morris, Lord Nuffield, founder of the Morris Motor Car,

and one of the richest men in the world during the early 20th century.

Today, the house is a time capsule of early 20th-century taste and thrift.

Even with a fortune behind them, Lord and Lady Nuffield still enjoyed

the simpler things in life, and their home and personal possessions

are just as they left them.

This visit to Nuffield Place offers a true and

memorable experience of a lifestyle

that’s largely disappeared.

Day 3

Henley-on-Thames and return home

Today enjoy a morning visit to the famous riverside town of Henley-on-Thames.

This will include a visit to the award-winning River and Rowing Museum

where you can learn all about the history of Henley

and its river.

Also discover the story behind Kenneth Grahame’s classic 1908 children’s novel

‘The Wind in the Willows’. A permanent and well produced exhibition

features some remarkable 3D models of E. H. Shepard’s

famous illustrations, bringing to life the popular

and well-known adventures of Mr Toad,

Ratty and their friends.
