Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020

Price: £43 Per Person

THE WONDER OF CHRISTMAS

It’s the most wonderful time of the year as the tree-tops glisten and the Great Lake and waterfalls of Blenheim Palace shimmer and sparkle.

There’s something for everyone as the one mile glittering path winds its way through the world-famous Parkland in a magical after dark experience.

The Blenheim winter trail is brighter than ever before with over a million pea-lights, lasers and projections. Wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour and dripping with silvery shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles.

From the delicate and twinkling to the grand and spectacular, follow the lakeside path past the Gingerbread House and under hundreds of larger-than-life glowing flowers suspended in the branches.

Sparkling hedgerows and tunnels lead you to a brand new Field of Light and on towards a garden filled with jewel-like, colour-changing globes.

There are hidden surprises too – Watch out for Bubble Path before you pause at the flickering scented flames of the Fire Garden for a moment of tranquil reflection. As you walk through a Canopy of Light festooned with over 100,000 pea-lights, the mesmerising voices of Singing Trees can be heard in the distance.

Don’t forget to look out for Father Christmas and his elves along the way before you pause at the Water Terrace Finale to enjoy the jumping water jets, projections and criss-crossing beams of light as they dance in time to much-loved Christmas classics.

Why not complete your stroll under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Gather to toast your own marshmallows at one of the fire pits, ride the vintage Carousel and enjoy other traditional fare before browsing the well stocked gift shop (Blenheim Palace will not be open on this date).

Price: Adults £17 - Children £12

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

REF – 100008/21

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.

The market has been at the heart of Ely community life for over 800 years.

The friendly weekly market is a fabulous shopping destination and an important community hub.    There’s everything you’d expect from a traditional market, plus a few surprises.   Each week you’ll find locally grown fruit and vegetables, flowers, household goods, artisan bread, cakes and more.

Spend a Relaxing Day at the Seaside

Aldeburgh is a pretty coastal town on the river Alde and enjoys breathtaking views both seawards and following the river Alde inland towards Orford. Its name comes from ‘Alde Burgh’ meaning “old fort” and the town’s history is closely linked to the changes time and Mother Nature have wrought to the coastal map.

Aldeburgh was once an important Tudor port and its shipbuilders were responsible for Francis Drake’s ‘Golden Hind’.   But over time the River Alde silted up taking its toll on the town’s fortunes, and coastal erosion swept away the heart of its old town.   Some historic buildings have survived the centuries, such as 400-year old Moot Hall, the Norman Church and a Martello tower.

Today Aldeburgh is famous for many things – good food, great fish & chips, Aldeburgh Music, Maggi Hamblings’ Scallop on the beach, as well as a vibrant art and music scene.   There are several Art Galleries in the town including one from Caroline Wiseman based in the iconic South Lookout.

Vintage Essex

Location: Essex

Date: Tuesday 18th May 2021

Price: £59 Per Person

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 people 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 Headquarters in the Essex Rodings, which includes a ploughman’s lunch and rides out in their vintage fleet of 1940s and 1950s coaches.

We begin in Thaxted, Queen of Essex at 10.30am 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.   The Rodings name comes from the Anglo-Saxon Hrodingas who sailed up the River Thames 1500 years ago, turned right at Barking Creek and kept going until they found this remote and fertile landscape.

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 Only Fools spin off Rock & Chips and the 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.

Trooping the Colour on the Queens Birthday

Location: Central London

Date: Saturday 5th June 2021

Price: Adult £19 - Children £12

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

REF – 100051/21

The custom of Trooping the Colour dates back to the time of Charles II in the 17th. Century when the Colours of a regiment were used as a rallying point in battle and were therefore trooped in front of the soldiers every day to make sure that every man could recognise those of his own regiment. In London, the Foot Guards used to do this as part of their daily Guard Mounting on Horse Guards and the ceremonial of the modern Trooping the Colour parade is along similar lines. The first traceable mention of The Sovereign’s Birthday being ‘kept’ by the Grenadier Guards is in 1748 and again, after George III became King in 1760, it was ordered that parades should mark the King’s Birthday. From the accession of George IV they became, with a few exceptions and notably the two World Wars, an annual event.

This impressive display of pageantry is now held on the occasion of the Queen’s Official Birthday. It takes place in June each year to celebrate the official Birthday of the Sovereign and is carried out by her personal troops, the Household Division, on Horse Guards Parade, with the Queen herself attending and taking the salute.

Since 1987, The Queen has attended in a carriage rather than riding, which she did before that on 36 occasions, riding side-saddle and wearing the uniform of the regiment whose Colour was being trooped. The regiments take their turn for this honour in rotation as operational commitments permit.

Over 1000 officers and men are on parade, together with two hundred horses; over two hundred musicians from six bands and corps of drums march and play as one. Some 113 words of command are given by the Officer in Command of the Parade.

The parade route extends from Buckingham Palace along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and back again.

BLUE BADGE GUIDED TOUR

This is a very entertaining and gentle walking tour on London’s Bankside with a top notch Blue Badge Tour Guide using the latest crystal clear VOX headsets which we have combined with a visit to The View at The Shard.

We join our top notch Blue Badge Tour Guide for a rather special day out.

We meet our guide at 10.30am to buy morning refreshments in the famous Borough Farmers Market.   Southwark’s Bankside was the Soho of Elizabethan London.   Memories of a racy past echo in the cobbled riverside lanes.   A delicate rose window survives from the Palace where the Bishops lived cheek by jowl with the brothels and bear pits.   In a raucous neighbourhood, the sheer scale of the depravity would make a modern sybarite blush but there were rules and the really bad could end up in the infamous Clink.

We’ve added the simple to use, crystal clear, Vox Wireless Tour Guide system headsets to this new day trip.   This isn’t a taped commentary – it’s still a top notch Blue Badge Guide talking to you live.   You wear the lightweight, receiver on a lanyard and you’ll be given a set of disposable in-ear headphones similar to what you’d get on a plane.   For people who use hearing aids there are special over-the-ear head phones. The sound is crystal clear so you’ll never miss a word.

The afternoon is dedicated to The View From The Shard.   Experience breath taking views of London 800ft above the city.   Take in the 360 degree panoramic views of up to 40 miles. You’ll still have your Vox sets so you can enjoy snippets of commentary from one of the best tour guides in London wherever you are up at the top – you don’t have to huddle in a group to hear.

Southwold is a charming North Suffolk Seaside Resort.

Southwold lies in the centre of an area of great natural beauty – a paradise for the walker, the naturalist and the birdwatcher. Situated on a hill that gently rises from the Blyth Valley, the town is virtually an island, being surrounded by the River Blyth to the south and Buss Creek to the north.  There is just one road in and out of Soutnwold

The quiet, understated elegance of its Georgian houses, its 100 foot Lighthouse towering above the Sole Bay Inn,  its pier (the first to be built in Britain since the 1950s) and cliff top promenade above the sandy beach, and of course its brightly coloured beach huts, all work together to create this atmosphere of a bygone age.

This is not a place for amusement arcades or Kiss me Quick Hats.

Every day you can see the Adnams Brewery Dray Horses plodding around the streets making deiveries and a visit to the Adnams shop will ensure that you can take something special home.

Spend some time visiting St Emunds Church which was completed in 1640.  Once inside, and immediately in front of you, is the wooden figure of Southwold Jack, who dates from the 15th Century and who for many years has struck his bell at the start of each service as well as welcoming brides on their wedding day.  When you next look at the Adnams Logo (a medieval foot soldier, holding a sword and ready to strike his bell), you will see Southwold Jack.

This is a relaxing day out for the whole family.

Broadstairs and Deal are survivors of a bygone age.

The Secret Gardens of Sandwich are one of Monty Don’s top ten gardens. we aim to arrive on the cliffs above Broadstairs for morning coffee and a muffin at 10.30/45am.

Broadstairs was a favourite summer resort of Charles Dickens.   Douglas Fairbanks Junior and Mary Pickford honeymooned here and Edward Heath sang in the church choir.   The town still maintains its air of gentility.   Enjoy some fresh seafood and visit a classic Broadstairs Italian ice cream parlour or bring a packed lunch and a small towel for a picnic and a paddle.

In the afternoon we drive via Ramsgate (which could do with a little loving) to the mediaeval town of Sandwich (which is much loved).   Compact, flat and divided into a series of “rooms” the Secret Gardens of Sandwich are ideal for an hour’s browse.   Lutyens and Jekyll broke free from the highly formal Victorian garden and created the English County Garden style.    Brick paths and herbaceous borders are planted with lilies, lupins and lavenders.  We continue just a little further along the coast to Deal for tea.

For many Deal is the prettiest seaside town in Kent; its attractive mix of unspoilt seafront, delightful conservation area and small fishing fleet certainly make it one of the gems of the Old Kent Coast.

Our day finishes here at 4.45pm.

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 Orchestra, 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.

Royal Leamington Spa and the National Guide Dog Breeding & Training Centre Tour

Price: Adult £24 - Children £16

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

REF – 100035/21

New for 2021

We will spent our morning at Royal Leamington Spa.  

The town of Leamington Spa, originally known as Leamington Priors was a tiny village until about 1800.   The value of the mineral springs was known in the middle ages, but it was not until 1784 that the small village began rediscovering its saline springs and started building baths around some of them.

Wide Boulevards, stunning architechure and award winning parks provide a sophisticated backdrop to this Regency Town.   Often described as “The best bits of London, all in a ten minute walk”.    Leamington Town Centre combines a treasure trove of independent specialist boutiques, alongside high street brands

You will have time to purchase lunch in Leamington Spa before we head off to the National Guide Dog Breeding and Training Centre.

Our two hour tour will commence in the early afternoon and last approximately 2 hours.

Come and see the puppies who become life-changing guide dogs throughout the UK! All of the pups start their journey at the National Breeding Centre (NBC), located just outside Leamington Spa. At the centre they have the room to breed up to 1500 puppies a year and since they opened their doors in 2011, they have now bred almost 11,000 puppies – that’s a lot of life changers!

Scheduled tours of the NBC are suitable for all ages and abilities (please note that the public tour doesn’t involve going into the kennel block or handling any puppies). You get a chance to see the puppies as they socialise and grow, gaining experience of everyday sights and sounds which help them develop the skills needed to become guide dogs. You also learn more about the incredible work they will go on to do as future guide dogs.

Taking photographs is a wonderful way of remembering your visit, however, as the National Breeding Centre is a working site we ask that you gain permission from any staff members before including them in your photography.

There’s also a chance of meeting some of the dogs, as they sometimes accompany the centre guides on the tour!

During your tour you’ll see the centre going through its daily activities.   You’ll discover how the centre uses the latest technology and innovations in their breeding as you walk along the specially built walkways which give you a great view of all that’s going on without disturbing either the dogs or staff.

Experience the Sensory Tunnel and get a brief insight into living with sight loss and how people living with a visual impairment get about.

Then to round off the tour you’ll have the chance to buy gifts and pet products from the shop

Tea or coffee is available to purchase from the guide after the tour although their is no cafe on site.

We include a donation to the Centre in our Ticket Price.

Dress up in the period to really feel like you have been transported back in time. This is one of those events you really shouldn’t miss!

It’s because they feed on the chalk reef just offshore, the longest in the world.

Price: Adult £22 - Children £12

SEASIDE SPECIAL DAY EXCURSION

REF – 100070/21

 

The Town of Whitstable grew from the main road to Canterbury, now known as the high street, and the alley ways developed as local residents needed greater access to the sea. The multitude of alleys also served as convenient escape routes for smugglers, as Whitstable was, like most Kentish coastal towns, awash with the illegal trade in tobacco and spirits, as well as people during the Napoleonic wars.

 With their distinctive names and character, the Whitstable alley ways run throughout the town, and are intertwined with Whitstable’s growth and history as a coastal town.  There are many alleys to explore for example Squeeze Gut Alley – Once known as Granny Bell’s Alley, due to the fact that a grandmother of sixteen children lived there, the reason for its present title quickly becomes clear as you try to pass through it!    The walls on each side loom high and dark as the alley bottle-knecks at the Island Wall end.    According to history, the alley way may also have got its name from a game local boys once played with a potentially very unamused overweight policeman who was unable to pursue them through this confined space.

 Whitstable Harbour was built in 1832 by the Canterbury and Whitstable railway company in order to serve the “Crab and Winkle” line, the world’s first passenger railway service. The Crab and Winkle line also carried coal, and linked Canterbury and London via a steam ship from Whitstable harbour.

The harbour fish markets are popular with locals and visitors alike, and a restaurant is also situated in the harbour, ready to serve up the day’s catch. In the summer months, visitors flock to the stalls which spring up to delight their customers with all manner of fresh sea food, including the famous Whitstable oysters.

Constable Country is where the famous landscape artist John Constable painted many of his paintings, including The Haywain and Boat Building on the River Stour.

Constable Country is part of The Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Our Coach trip will take you to Dedham, which is at the very heart of Constable Country.  This is where John Constable went to school and Dedham has a quaint High Street with cute tea shops and a charming church.

We move on to East Bergholt where Constable was born and where the church of St Mary The Virgin has the famous Bell Cage in it’s churchyard.  John Constables parents – and Willy Lott are buried here.

We end our day at Flatford Mill, which is owned by The National Trust and was once owned by John Constable’s father and brother.  This is where you may decide to visit Willy Lott’s house, which has changed little since John Constable painted the iconic Haywain.

There is a small museum in Bridge Cottage and you have the opportunity to visit The National Trust Shop and relax with a cup of tea in the tearoom.

Ghosts, Gallows and Gangsters

Location: London

Date: Friday 29th October 2021

Price: £55 Per Person

BLUE BADGE GUIDED TOUR

REF – 100063/21

London is the most haunted city in the world.   Once called the “City of Gallows” visitors had to pass a hanged man at every gate.   For Halloween, we seek out ghosts, gangsters & the mystery of Jack the Ripper.

Expect goosebumps and giggles.

We meet our Blue Badge Guide on Whitehall at 10.30am for morning coffee (included).

We slip into St James’s Park to begin a morning on foot telling the story of crimes and punishments, ghosts and spies.   In Parliament Square we discover the best way to preserve a head on a spike and learn the dreadful fate of the man who tried to rob the Abbey treasury.

We break to buy lunch in Parliament Square.

In the afternoon we travel by coach through the Old Square Mile via Sweeney Todd’s Fleet Street to the East End of the Kray Twins.   In Victorian times life was cheap here and murder not uncommon.

But one murderer has left an indelible mark on our national conscience – neither caught nor identified but known the world over as Jack the Ripper.

The Ripper murders coincided with the rise of the “penny dreadful” and magazines like Tit-Bits, designed to offer snippets of news to the newly literate poor.   Nothing is new – bad news sold newspapers!

We’ll stop to buy tea in Spitalfields or you could opt for a pint of ale or a large gin at the Ten Bells where the Ripper victims drank.

You’ll be ready to head home at 4.15pm.
