Once clear of London Heathrow, instead of joining the mobile car park heading into London and rooms that aren’t ready until after 1pm, persuade your clients to park their jetlag in the English countryside for 3 nights. Then, bright eyed and bushy tailed, make for the big city.
This short travel less, see more remedy is filled with visits to the treasure-filled stately homes of Waddesdon Manor and Blenheim Palace and a guided walking tour of Oxford that’s tailored to meet your clent’s specific interests. It’s based at the Five Arrows Hotel, an elegant boutique property at the gates of Waddesdon Manor and doubles up nicely as a pre tour to London or as a memorable extension before or after a cruise sailing in or out of Southampton, Dover or Harwich. Tour highlights include:
- A stroll around Savill Gardens near Windsor while other weary travellers are in the London-bound tail back on the M4 or a visit to Windsor Castle, timed to coincide with the Changing of the Guard.
- A full day at the magnificent Waddesdon Manor built by Barn Ferdinand de Rothschild to display his priceless collection of art treasures.
- A ‘Beat The Crowds’ visit to the stunning Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Wiinston Churchill and where you’ll discover ‘Capability’ Brown’s great showpiece garden.
- a walking tour of Oxford themed to meet your client’s interests in Harry and Alice, Inspector Morse, C S Lewis or some of the less well known University Colleges.
