COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY

DAY 1 We travel to the hotel in Leicester stopping in Bedford, renowned as having one of the finest riverside settings in the country, for lunch to be purchased. We continue to the hotel and have time to relax before our evening meal.

DAY 2 After breakfast we travel to the historic market town of Melton Mowbray, famous for its pork pie and specialty cheeses. We visit Ye Olde Pie Shoppe where we watch a DVD demonstration on how to make a pork pie and we have the chance to visit The Melton Cheeseboard shop to taste and buy the area’s most famous cheeses, before strolling around the town. In the afternoon we enjoy a guided tour at Belvoir Brewery followed by a tasting of three ales and a buffet of homemade and local produce, including pork pie, stilton and homemade chutney and pickles.

DAY 3 After breakfast we head for the beautiful Barnsdale Gardens, created by Britain’s best loved gardener, the late Geoff Hamilton, star of Gardener’s World, before travelling to the pretty, traditional English market town of Oakham - look out for the unusual stocks - the five-hole stocks are somewhat of a mystery! We end the day with a relaxing tea cruise on Rutland Water with tea, coffee and scones with jam & cream.

DAY 4 After breakfast we check out of the hotel then visit the King Richard III Visitor Centre, which charts the story of the king’s life and death, revealing one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told. The centre is a stone’s throw away from Leicester Cathedral and the tomb of King Richard. We have free time in Leicester for lunch to be purchased before our return journey home.
