The Bard and the Bulldog

The Bard and the Bulldog

An eye-catching title for a closer look at some old friends.  The Bard focuses on the Elizabethan life and times of William Shakespeare while The Bulldog introduces Sir Winston Churchill at Blenheim Palace.  Into the mix, I’ve blended some nooks and crannies in the Cotswolds, an area I know well through having lived there for over 5 years.  Subject to your dates, this programme can be set up as a pre or post cruise extension.  Highlights include:

  • Waterperry Garden, formerly a School of Horticulture for Ladies
  • Blenheim Palace, Sir Winston Churchill’s birthplace and Capability Brown’s showpiece garden
  • The classic early English landscape at Rousham House
  • An on and off the beaten path trip through the Cotswolds
  • A visit to Shakespeare’s Birthplace
  • A close look at Elizabethan England as seen through the costumed interpreters at the Shakespeare Houses
  • A performance at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre
  • Jaw dropping living history at spectacular Warwick Castle.
