Sunday 16th October 2022 Arrive at the medieval market town of Stratford Upon Avon at your leisure. When you have settled in and unpacked you will have the remainder of the afternoon to enjoy a dip in the indoor heated swimming pool or there's always the gym to work up a sweat before heading to the sauna. Or join your hosts Jen & Caron in the bar for a chat and drink. We will then meet all our guests for a pre-dinner complimentary drink in the bar before we head to the hotel restaurant for our welcome group dinner(dinner and welcome drink included in your price)
Monday 17th October 2022 After a leisurely breakfast, we will take a late morning stroll to Anne Hathaway's Cottage, the family home of Anne Hathaway, William Shakespeare’s wife-to-be. If you prefer to catch the local bus that's no problem as buses run frequently. It is at the Cottage that Anne was born and raised and where the young Shakespeare would have visited her during the early part of their relationship. The cottage was built more than 500 years ago with much of the original cottage surviving. After leaving the Cottage we will have lunch in town before heading to Shakespeare's childhood home in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon. You will hear tales of Shakespeare’s family life and see many objects from the Trust’s world class collections as you discover how the extraordinary playwright continues to shape our lives today. We will then make the short walk back to the hotel where you can relax and unwind before we go out for our group evening meal in a local restaurant.
Tuesday 18th October 2022 After a relaxing breakfast you will have a relaxing day! This is our group spa day where you will have the opportunity to have your 2 chosen spa treatments as well as enjoy the indoor pool and sauna. This is a lovely way to spend group time while rejuvenating and unwinding. During the afternoon we will be served afternoon tea of scones, cakes and a selection of sandwiches (all included in your spa day). We will have our group dinner in another local restaurant.
Wednesday 19th October 2022 After a relaxing breakfast we will be met by our Blue Badge Guide who will take us on a private walking tour of Stratford Upon Avon. Following on from our walk you'll have time for a leisurely lunch before we embark on our final excursion - an exclusive spirit tasting of handcrafted Gins and Rums from the local Shakespeare distillery. After your tasting hour we will go back to the hotel and get ready for our final group meal at a local restaurant.
Thursday 20th October 2022 After a relaxing breakfast it's time to say our farewells. You can always stay on and take some more time to explore Stratford Upon Avon, go shopping or visit some of the quaint nearby towns and villages and historic places right on your doorstep.
