Vintage Essex

Location: Essex

Date: Tuesday 17th March 2020

Price: £49 Per Person

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

BLUE BADGE GUIDED TOUR

In partnership with Lodge Coaches of High Easter, near Chelmsford, we bring you Vintage Essex, a very entertaining new day out for customers who like to see a lot without walking too far.

We combine the best in Blue Badge guiding in picture postcard Essex villages with an afternoon at the Lodge HQ in the Essex Rodings including a ploughman’s lunch and rides out in their vintage fleet of 1940s and 1950s coaches.

We begin in Thaxted, Queen of Essex for morning refreshments in an old coaching inn.  Betjeman said Thaxted was about as good as it gets. We’ll visit the old wool church where English composer Gustav Holst played the organ and the vicar flew the Red Flag from the tower.  Who’s for a few verses of Holst’s hymn Thaxted, better known as I Vow To Thee My Country?   From the church we weave past black and white striped Tudor houses and jolly colour-washed homes from the mediaeval to the Georgian period to the beautifully wonky old Guildhall.

From high in the coach we’ll take in the gently rolling landscapes of rural Essex and the chocolate box village of Finchingfield as we head south to the little known Essex Rodings. Eight villages full of old thatched cottages, timber-framed manor houses and farmhouses form the largest group in the country to share a common name.

A ploughman’s lunch is ready for us at the Lodge Garage in High Easter.   We are surrounded by the vintage vehicle collection and old coaching ephemera collection of the Lodge Family who are approaching their centenary in the coaching business.

It’s a lovely afternoon with time to enjoy the collection of old coaching and bus ephemera and rides out in immaculately restored 1940s and 1950s coaches that have starred in Rock & Chips and blockbuster series The Crown.

We finish the day with a cup of tea, which is also included in the tour fee.

We’ll be ready to head home at 4.45pm.

Coach departs Stevenage at 0900

Pick Up Points also available from Baldock, Letchworth & Hitchin

The Great Stink

Location: London

Date: Tuesday 24th March 2020

Price: £59 Per Person

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

BLUE BADGE GUIDED TOUR

Two thousand years ago the Romans enjoyed indoor plumbing but until a couple of hundred years ago Londoners were still emptying their chamber pots out of the window.

In 1858 the long hot summer turned into The Great Stink with the Thames little more than an open sewer. Something had to be done.

We begin in central London tracking London’s lost rivers, cruise the Thames to Greenwich and drive across the old Thames marshes to the extraordinary Cathedral of Sewage built to house the Crossness Engines.

We meet the Blue Badge Guide in the City for morning coffee (included) at a pub with possibly the best loos in London.   We tell the story of spending a penny from Roman times to the coming of the flush loo.    We trace London’s lost rivers, tell the story of The Great Stink and show you how Victorian engineer Sir Joseph’s Bazalgette achieved one of the most remarkable feats of civil engineering ever seen.   Bazalgette stopped London’s waste running into the Thames by building massive intercepting sewers beneath new Embankments created by pushing back the mighty Thames behind stone walls.

On Bazalgette’s Victoria Embankment, we board a Thames Pleasure Cruiser to Greenwich. You must bring packed lunches today to eat during the cruise.

From Greenwich the coach whisks us further east past Woolwich to the Thames Marshes and the Cathedral of Sewage.   Discover some of our most spectacular ornamental Victorian cast ironwork and possibly the world’s largest surviving beam engines.   There’s a museum and a social story here too – the workers lived on site in terraced cottages built right above the massive sewage storage tank. Mesh at the windows kept the flies at bay.   It must have stunk to high Heaven but my goodness they grew good tomatoes!

A most unusual day comes to a conclusion with tea and biscuits at Crossness included in the tour fee before heading home at 4.30pm.

Coach departs Stevenage at 0830

Pick Up Points also available from Baldock – Letchworth – Hitchin – Welwyn Garden City & Hatfield

Tutankhamun & The Roaring Twenties

Location: London

Date: Tuesday 31st March 2020

Price: £59 Per Person

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

BLUE BADGE GUIDED TOUR

The show is quite wonderful.

Of course there is gold and gilt but there is also astonishingly ethereal alabaster that seems to glow from within and impossibly perfect wooden chests.   Are these replicas visitors ask? No, they are the pristine objects that lay in the dark for 3500 years.   A tiny throne, a game box and a boy’s set of boomerangs remind us that this was the Boy King who came to the throne aged nine and died just ten years later.   And who knew that Tutankhamuns delicate linen gloves survived in such remarkable condition.

Such humble items from such an alien and distant culture are fascinating.   The Ancient Egyptians believed that if you spoke his name the King would be immortal.   Is this what the Gods had in mind?

The discovery of the boy king’s tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter in an expedition financed by Lord Carnarvon of Highclere Castle stirred up ‘Egyptomania’ in England.

The 3,300 year old Egyptian designs influenced the art and architecture of the Roaring Twenties.

Our companion tour in the company of an erudite and entertaining Blue Badge Tour Guide tells the story of Tutmania in the Roaring Twenties and sets the scene for your visit to the exhibition.

Date: Sunday 19th April 2020

Price: Adult £20 - Concessions £19 - Children £12

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

Rochester is a town with a rich history and a lot of Charles Dickens connections

Dickens spent much of his childhood and part of his adult life living here.

You could spend some time visiting The Six Poor Travellers House. This charity house provided room and board for six poor travellers from the Tudor period until World War II.   A visit inspired Dickens to write a short story called The Seven Poor Travellers, and today the house is a free museum with exhibits and a beautiful garden at the back.

Down the street is Eastgate House, a historic home with more Dickens connections. The Swiss chalet that served as his study at Gad’s Hill Place, his house near Rochester, sits in the garden. Eastgate House itself is a beauty to behold, and is an attractive highlight of the high street.

Why not visit Rochester Cathedral which was founded in 604 and is the second oldest cathedral in England.

Across the street is Rochester Castle, where the 12th-century keep dominates the skyline. It’s one of the tallest and best preserved in England and is steeped in history from Norman times through the Civil War and beyond.

Browse the quaint little shops in the High Steet many with Dickens Themes or enjoy a cup of tea in one of the little tearooms.  Take in the views across the River Medway.

Enjoy your Spring day in Rochester.

Price: £49 Per Person

The New Forest Matinee Explorer begins at midday at a 15th century thatched forest pub.   During the summer months ponies and donkeys gather in the shade of this lovely inn.    Enjoy a 2-course lunch with coffee together before we slip into the forest following in the footsteps of Kings and Queens, commoners and gypsies, smugglers and lovers.

Over the past millennium a wealth of myth and legend has wound itself around the forest trees like a clinging vine.

Your expert guide will chart a course to the heart of this enchanting world. You’ll see the Rufus Stone commemorating the controversial death of flame haired William II and see picture postcard villages including one that had to go to court to decide if it was in the forest or not.

We visit a picture postcard thatched village and a 13th century church guarded by an ancient yew where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, lies buried.

We’ll take you through Lyndhurst the “Capital” of the Forest and to the deer enclosure and ornamental drive at Bolderwood where huge trees including California Redwoods line our route.

For tea we stop in Beaulieu, “the Historic Heart of the New Forest”, dating back to the days of King John.   The name means beautiful and it is.   No other place in the forest can match Beaulieu for historic interest and here too you may see donkeys and ponies ambling along the pavements.   There are two or three places selling tea to round off an enjoyable day out.   We leave Beaulieu at 4.30pm to begin the drive home.

Day Trip to Maldon in Essex

Location: Maldon, Essex

Date: Saturday 2nd May 2020

Price: Adult £17 - Concessions £16 - Child £12

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

When you visit Maldon you will find this ancient Essex town, with its oldest part sitting high on a hill overlooking the Blackwater estuary, has a rich and varied history just waiting to be explored.

Maldon is one of the oldest recorded towns in Essex and a walk up the High Street to the crest of the town reveals many buildings whose brick facades conceal medieval timber frames.

At the junction of the High Street and Market Hill stands the tower of St Peters which is attached to the building erected in 1704 by Dr Thomas Plume to house his famous library and the Maldon’s grammar school. The school has long since moved and the ground floor now contains the Maeldune Centre which displays the Maldon Embroidery depicting life in the town from the Battle of Maldon to the present day.

Further along is Maldon’s Moot Hall, built in the 15th century for the d’Arcy family and most recently used as the council chambers, magistrates court and police station. Another few yards and you will reach the 13th century All Saints’ Church, famous for it’s trianglar tower and Washington Window.

Maldon’s Market Hil is lined with more timber framed buildings including the old workhouse and leads steeply down to Fullbridge at the crossing of the River Chelmer. This area was once a thriving port and Maldon’s wharves were kept busy unloading ships laden with timber and other materials. It is also the home of the old Maldon railway station building which has survived despite the railway being closed in 1964. At the end of Station Road you will find the Combined Military Services Museum containing a large collection of weapons and armoury and other displays.

The most popular image of Maldon is one that captures the scene at The Hythe with it’s collection of barges and other craft tied up at the quay and the old church of St Mary the Virgin dominating the skyline.

The Hythe was originally a separate hamlet serving Maldon as a port where, among other cargoes, East Coast barges would transport hay and straw up the Thames to feed London’s large number of horses. These barges ceased to carry cargo many years ago and the survivors are now lovingly preserved by their owners and used as pleasure craft carrying passengers on day trips and charters.

The massive Italianate mansion is now on lease from the National Trust as the five star hotel.   We’ll take you on a gentle trail through the gardens, which capture the grandeur of the time between the wars when it was the glittering hub of society.   We’ll choose the best of the gardens when you come: the famous parterre planted in spring and summer with 25,000 bulbs and bedding plants, the restored Rose Garden, the topiary and an outstanding sculpture collection.    Along the way there are great stories of the Cliveden Set and, fifty years later, of the Profumo Scandal.

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

NEW FOR 2020

Nestling under the big skies of the Fen countryside, in the shadow of its magnificent cathedral, Ely offers a wealth of attractions. As the second smallest city in England, it is compact enough to explore on foot, but large enough to fill a full day and more.

The first port of call for any visitor to Ely today will almost certainly be the Cathedral. This imposing structure towers across the fens for miles around. Dominating the skyline, it is one of England’s most beautiful and largest Cathedrals. Known locally as the ‘Ship of the Fens’ it is famous for its unique Octagon tower, which when lit can be seen for tens of miles.  The Cathedral is also home to the only national museum dedicated to Stained Glass. If it’s history you’re interested in then Ely Museum housed in the city’s old gaol, is an excellent place to start.

Ely’s most famous historical resident of Ely was of course Oliver Cromwell.  The Cromwell family lived in Ely for some 10 years and today you can visit their former house which has been recreated to demonstrate what 17th Century domestic life would have been like along with an exhibition on the civil war.  It also doubles as the Tourist Information Centre.

Ely has a beautiful waterside area, which is an attraction within itself, where you can explore the many cafes and restaurants or visit the art galleries.  Alternatively, simply take time out to relax and watch the river boats pass by.

We begin in Moreton-in-Marsh at the head of the Evonlode Valley. This thriving market town has a 1000 year history going back to Saxon times.

Then we’re off by coach to explore some very beautiful landscapes, taking in Stow-on-the-Wold, where the wind can indeed blow cold and Capability Brown’s dramatic Broadway Tower set on a beacon hill just off an ancient trading route. Broadway is the Jewel of the Cotswolds with an absolute chocolate box of a High Street lined with horse chestnut trees and a mixture of period houses and picturesque honey coloured stone cottages. There is a good choice of places to buy lunch and some great mooching to be had.

Nothing quite prepares you for Sezincote. Winding through mighty oaks lining a long drive we see a weathered-copper onion dome straight out of India atop a beautiful house in the honey coloured stone of the Cotswolds. It was built for Samuel Pepys’ grandson – a Nabob of the East India Company. A curving orangery unfurls above a Repton landscape where gurgling water tumbles into the Island Pool in the valley bottom. Sezincote wowed the Prince Regent thus inspiring the Brighton Pavilion and it is now attracting lots of visitors having wowed viewers of BBC Gardeners’ World. You’ll be taken on a tour of the house (beautiful Regency interiors, lovely and light and not overly long – heavenly!) and have time to explore the gardens.

Backstage at the Royal Opera House

Location: London

Price: £54 Per Person

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

Following your two course lunch with a soft drink in the Covent Garden area, it’s time to step inside this amazing venue which has been reopened due to popular demand and following a massive £50 million renovation.

The current building is the third theatre on the site following disastrous fires in 1808 and 1856. The first, the Theatre Royal, opened in 1732, before burning down in 1808. The second opened just eight months later (1809) and survived until March 1856 when another fire destroyed the theatre. A third theatre, designed by Edward Middleton Barry, opened in 1858. This was a fireproof building in a regular classical design, and alongside it Barry built the Floral Hall in 1858-9. The Floral Hall was a glass-and-iron structure intended to serve as a concert hall annexe and winter garden.

The theatre became the Royal Opera House in 1892.

Your Backstage Tour includes an introduction to the colourful history of the theatre, an insight into the 2018 redevelopment of the Royal Opera House and a look at aspects of current productions. As the Royal Opera House is a fully working theatre, each tour is a unique experience and may include opportunities to see The Royal Ballet in class, or the magnificent backstage technology in operation.

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

The five-day meeting begins each day with the Royal Procession –

The arrival of The Queen and the Royal party in horse-drawn landaus, which parade along the track in front of the race- goers.

The Royal Procession dates back to the 1820s and the reign of King George IV, at which time it was referred to as the Royal Parade or Royal Drive. The Royal Enclosure is at the heart of Royal Ascot. Entry to the enclosure is by sponsorship from an existing member who has attended in four previous years. Within this area, gentlemen are required to wear morning dress with a top hat and ladies must wear formal day wear. The origin of this tradition can be traced back to around the time of the running of Ascot’s most famous race, The Gold Cup, which was inaugurated in 1807 and remains to this day the most important long distance horse race on the flat anywhere in the world.

Enjoy a great day at the races.

The Hippodrome has been dubbed one of the seven wonders of the British seaside. The Historic Hippodrome is Britain’s only surviving total circus building, built in 1903 by the legendary circus showman George Gilbert. Throughout the century the intimate arena has played host to an incredible variety of entertainment, from amazing water spectacles and stage shows to cinema and cine variety and even wartime use as a military practice shooting range! – Apart from always presenting the very best in circus,

Lloyd George held political rallies here – Lillie Langtry sang, Little Tich clowned, Max Miller joked, Houdini escaped, the world’s finest clowns and circus personalities performed –

ALL experienced the Hippodrome’s unique atmosphere. It’s likely that even Charlie Chaplin performed here as a child actor before finding fame in America.

In recent years the Hippodrome has played host to The Berlin Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Julian Lloyd Webber and The Russian Philharmonic, Moscow State Circus, Chinese State Circus  and the Circus of Horrors.

Peter Jay restored the water spectacle for his first produced circus show in 1981, having bought the building in 1979, the water has been a major part of the unique shows ever since.

No animals are used in any performances.

Natural History Museum Tring

Location: Tring

Date: Wednesday 5th August 2020

Price: Adult £15 - Kids go for a Quid (One Child Per Adult) - Additional Children £12.

SCHOOL HOLIDAY SPECIAL

NEW FOR 2020

The Natural History Museum at Tring was the private museum of Lionel Walter, the 2nd Baron Rothschild and was built in 1889 to house one of the finest collections of stuffed mammals, birds, reptiles and insects in the United Kingdon.

Lionel Walter Rothschild was a rich, eccentric and determined character who dedicated his life to the study of animals. His private collection formed the foundation of the Museum at Tring.

At the age of seven, Walter – as he preferred to be called – declared to his parents that he was going to ‘make a museum‘, and began to establish himself as a collector.

By the age of 10, he had amassed a collection of specimens including beetles, butterflies, birds, fish and mammals. At 18 he moved to Cambridge to study natural sciences, and for his 21st birthday his father gave him money and land to build the museum Walter had first declared would be his some 14 years earlier.

In 1892, at 24 years old, Walter opened his museum to the public. It remains one of the largest private natural history collections ever assembled.

Following Walter’s death in 1937, the building and collection were gifted to the nation and became part of the Natural History Museum.

Today it retains its unique Victorian character, including its original floor-to-ceiling, glass-fronted hardwood and iron cases. The 4,000 specimens on public display are still arranged in taxonomic order, classified into related groups, just as they were in Walter’s lifetime.

Great place to take the kids for a day out in the School Holidays.

At one time the house was the home of Queen Victoria’s mother, the Duchess of Kent. After her death, her son-in-law, Prince Albert, commissioned the building of an elegant mausoleum to hold her remains.  Queen Victoria was particularly fond of Frogmore’s peaceful ambience and it became her favourite retreat.

Visitors can journey through 35 acres of interconnecting gardens and exotic woodland. Every garden has its own unique attraction, featuring a distinctive group of plants that introduce a fresh burst of vibrant colour throughout the seasons.

Jordans Mill

Location: Jordans Mill

Date: Wednesday 16th September 2020

Price: £10 Per Person

WEDNESDAY HALF DAY SENIOR CITIZENS SPECIAL

Our Half Day Special today will be visiting Jordans Mill.  This historic Victorian Flour Mill has been home to the Jordans Family for over 150 years.

Spend some time wandering around the unique Mill Gardens where crops, vegetables and fruits are grown in an ornemental setting or take a stroll through the Mill Meadow and woodland.

The Mill Gardens were designed by Chelsea Flower Show winners Ian Kitson and Julie Toll who took inspiration from ancient field layouts, hedge patterns and the flow of the River Ivel. Just as the Bedfordshire countryside is divided into fields by hedgerows, the different areas of the gardens are separated using yew hedging. A winding path, emulating the flow of the River Ivel, leads you through the Mill Gardens.

At Jordans Mill you can step back in time in the historic flour Mill,  and see first-hand how flour was once produced here.

Lovingly restored having stopped milling in 2000, the 19th Century Mill has been divided in two by a spectacular floor-to-ceiling glass screen, with the working part of the Mill on one side and a contemporary display area on the other.

There is an additional charge of £2.50 per person to visit the Mill.

Spend some time in the shop where you can browse and buy a large range of Jordans products and other locally sourced items.

Finally,why not enjoy a scone or a cake in The Riverside Cafe where you can relax indoors or on the large Riverside Terrace overlooking the River.

(Food and Drinks are not included in the Price of the Trip)

THE WONDER OF CHRISTMAS

It’s the most wonderful time of the year as the sparkling after dark trail returns to light up Kew Gardens.

Now in its eighth year, the 2020 winter trail takes a magical new route and includes a host of all-new installations.

Framed by glittering spiral trees, dynamic laser projections will illuminate the iconic Temperate House.

A dazzling arch leads to a cascade of glowing silvery shards at the Treetop Walkway. Walk amongst immersive vines as they surprise with changing ribbons of light, and wander beneath the branches where mysterious fairy-fire known as Will-o’the Wisp softly glows

The Holly Bushes will sing, the Tunnel of Light will twinkle with thousands of pea-lights, and the flickering Fire Garden takes its place amidst the festive experience.

Walk under larger-than-life arches of light and beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour.

Christmas at Kew wouldn’t be complete without the Palm House Pond finale as jumping jets of light dance across the water to much-loved Christmas classics.

Complete a walk under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate. Choose from an enticing selection of  street food along the trail.   From sourdough pizza to award-winning pies, there’s something to suit everyone.

Gather around the fire-pit with family and friends to toast marshmallows and end the evening browsing Kew’s gift shops. Why not pick up some treats for the journey home?

For the young and young at heart there’s a Victorian carousel, helter skelter and other family rides. Don’t forget to look out for Santa and his elves along the way.

We will spend the evening from 5pm -10pm at Kew.

Polar Express Train

Location: Somewhere in Norfok

Date: To Be Confirmed

Price: To Be Confirmed

THE WONDER OF CHRISTMAS

Date & Price to be advertised frem April 2020

Do you believe? We do at Landmark Coaches and that is why we are proud to be taking you on an exciting magical experience like no other. THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride is returning to the Mid-Norfolk Railway this December with the magic of the 2004 motion picture THE POLAR EXPRESS™ being theatrically re-created so you and your family can be immersed in the sights, sounds and intrigue of this classic children’s tale.

Prepare to be surrounded by the magic and wonder of the Christmas season!

As you and your family take in the festive decorations at THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride station, you can almost hear the faint sound of sleigh bells in the distance and the fun begins.

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ is waiting for you at the platform. Wait for the train Conductor to invite you and the other passengers to climb aboard, shouting “All aboooooard!”. Anticipation builds as you step onto the Train to be escorted to your seat by the Chefs from the film.

Before long, scenes from the film come to life as dancing Chefs and Waiters arrive to serve cookies and hot chocolate. The children are invited to engage these exciting characters who are eager to hear from the youngsters about what makes the Christmas season special to them.

While the hot chocolate lingers in your mouth and warms your tummy, you will listen as the story of The Polar Express is told in its entirety. Chefs show pages from the beautifully illustrated book for the whole carriage to follow. A smile grows on your face as you watch your child become absorbed in the wonderment of the story.

As your adventure continues, you notice other key elements of the story — both inside and outside your train — springing to life. Watch and listen as another scene unfolds on-board before your eyes.

Upon arrival at the North Pole, keep your eyes peeled for Santa’s sleigh, a bag of toys and a giant Christmas tree. Watch out for Santa waving and, when the train stops, listen out for the carriage door to slam as Santa gets on board. After the train departs the North Pole for the return voyage home, you soon notice that the adventure isn’t over. Santa appears in your midst to present each passenger with their very own “First Gift of Christmas”, a silver bell from his sleigh. Thinking back to the story, you might like to remind the children to check their pockets for holes!

Chefs on board lead the passengers in singing favourite Christmas Carols as the train heads back to Dereham Station. Here passengers depart the train and make their way to the great gift shop with a range of gifts from toys, to Exclusive Polar Express Merchandise.

Young and old guests are encouraged to wear pyjamas just as in the Film. Children love it and if you can persuade our older guests, Mums, Dads, Granny and Grandpa to also join in, the atmosphere in the train comes alive for a truly magical experience!

This is where your participation in the story of The Polar Express comes to an end. However, our hope for your family is that your Christmas season has been enriched and memories from your experience will endure for years to come.

“Well, ya comin’?”
