We commence with a visit to Knebworth House, one of England's most beloved stately homes and former home of the Victorian novelist Edward Bulwer Lytton - author of the words 'The pen is mightier than the sword'. Your guide will escort you around the House, with free time to explore the magnificent gardens. We continue to our hotel in time for dinner and our 4-night stay.


Discover the heritage and rural beauty of the region as we enjoy a leisurely 2 hour River Cruise through the meadows and woodlands of the Lee Valley Regional Park. During our cruise we will be treated to a lovely cream tea.


Today we visit Hatfield House, a 400 year old Jacobean country house most famous for being the childhood place of Queen Elizabeth I. Hatfield Estate has been owned by the Cecil's, one of England's foremost political families for 400 years with the House set in lovely and massive sculpted gardens and parkland.


We travel to Wimpole Hall Estate (NT). The Estate comprises an imposing mansion with interior chapel, walled garden, unusual church, and home farm as well as extensive grounds. Listed in Domesday book 1086 and rebuilt 1650 the Hall was latterly lived in from 1938 by Captain George & Mrs Elsie Bambridge (daughter of Rudyard Kipling) who created dramatic interiors containing fine furniture, porcelain, pictures, and prints.


On our homeward journey we visit Bletchley Park - Once Britain's
Best-Kept Secret, today Bletchley Park is a unique heritage attraction. Visitors can explore, experience and enjoy the once top-secret world of iconic WW2 Codebreaking Huts and Blocks set within an atmospheric Victorian estate.
