Sights in London
Following a 9am pickup at your centrally located London hotel, take a seat in your traditional black cab and spin onward to Bowood House — a beautiful 18th-century manor nestled in the Wiltshire countryside.
On arrival, explore the house (own expense), and admire the Georgian architecture and plush furnishings you find. Discover historical artefacts and heirlooms including Queen Victoria’s wedding chair and Napoleon's death mask, and learn of the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne — the ancestral owners.
Delve into the gardens, widely considered among the finest in England, and stroll across the sweeping lawns to the peaceful lake at the bottom. Discover hedgerows and flowerbeds laid out by Capability Brown — a famous British landscape gardener — and capture the pretty views on camera.
Continue on to the second stately home of your tour, either Blenheim Palace, Buscot Park and Gardens, Greys Court, Hidcote Manor Garden, Kelscott Manor, or Sulgrave Manor. As before, explore the house and gardens at your leisure (own expense) and gain insight into their place in British history.
When your second visit comes to an end, relax on route to Covent Garden or your London hotel to conclude your tour.
Take a trip through the beautiful English countryside and visit the gorgeous Hatfield House estate, home of the legendary Queen Elizabeth I, just a short drive north of London in Hertfordshire County.
After being collected from your accommodation in London or at a convenient meeting point in the city, you will take a short but scenic drive to Hatfield House. Stroll through its formal period gardens, featured in many famous films through the years, take a walk through the vast acres of woods and landscaped gardens, or visit one of the several exhibitions at the estate.
If you'd like a whole day out, consider adding the nearby Knebworth House to see a totally different style of country house.
Start the day off at your hotel or at a convenient meeting point at a north London train or tube station, and travel by private car through the beautiful English countryside to the stately home of Hughenden Manor.
Hughenden Manor was home to Queen Victoria's favorite Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, who was a very forward-thinking politician at a time the British Empire was at its peak, and the only Jewish British Prime Minister in history. Set in the rolling wooded Chiltern Hills, an official area of outstanding beauty but only 30 miles from central London. Hughenden Manor is a surprisingly personal home, filled with formal gardens, acres of woodland, as well as an ancient church.
As you explore the estate, enjoy some light refreshments along the way, and when the day is done, get dropped off at a convenient location in London.
Begin the day at your hotel in London or at a convenient meeting point (such as a north London train or tube station) and enjoy a scenic ride through the beautiful English countryside to the stately home of Woburn Abbey, where the family of the Duke of Bedford have lived for centuries.
Situated on a massive estate filled with immaculate gardens and populated by thousands of deer, Woburn Abbey is a sight to behold. The house itself is sumptuously decorated and just when you think you have seen it all, the wonders of the family treasure vault await you. Enjoy some complimentary beverages while you explore the grounds, and then relax as you are driven back to your residence in London.
