Monday: Departing from your local area we make our way to charming Cotswolds arriving with plenty of time to settle before dinner.

Tuesday: Cheltenham & Steam Train to Broadway
This morning we have some free time to explore Cheltenham at leisure. This
Regency town, made popular as a spa destination by George III, is brimming
with history. As we stroll along the promenade, it’s easy to see why it became a favourite amongst 18th century aristocrats after its health-giving spa waters
were discovered. Cheltenham is also famous for its festival and the Gold Cup,
so it is fitting that we head to Cheltenham Racecourse to board the Gloucester
Warwickshire steam train to the nearby town of Broadway, nesting in the
Cotswolds. Here, we have time to browse this interesting Cotswold town before returning to our hotel.

Wednesday: Gloucester & Painswick Rococo Garden
We spend this morning in Gloucester with time to explore at leisure. We can visit the medieval Cathedral (used in most of the Harry Potter films as Hogwarts), the award-winning Gloucester Waterways Museum overlooking the River Severn, and the recently restored historic Victorian Docks that now buzz with museums, shops, boats and restaurants. In the afternoon we make our way to the delightful Cotswold village of Painswick, famous for its churchyard with 99 yew trees and the famous yew clipping ceremony in September. While here, we visit the Rococo Garden, designed in the 1740s for the owner to use as his ‘playground’. Positioned in a hidden valley offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, it features intriguing garden buildings, magical follies and flowers and colours that transform by the seasons.

Thursday: Scenic Cotswolds                                                                                  Today we take an excursion by coach around the honey-coloured Cotwolds, visiting Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the ‘Little Venice’ of the Cotswolds due to its low bridges crossing the River Windrush and also famed for its model village. We then head to the pretty market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, perched on Stow Hill which at 800 metres above sea level, makes it the highest in the Cotswolds. Elegant shops, houses and a market square await, with gift, craft and antique shops galore. Our final stop before returning to our hotel, is in charming Chipping Campden, one of the loveliest of the towns, noted for its terraced high street, thatched cottages and array small and quirky shops.

Friday: After a leisurely breakfast we depart for home, comfort stops en route.
