Today we head north to the Potteries. Our first visit is to the Wedgwood Visitor Centre and Museum at Barlaston. Here you can immerse yourself in the heritage of Britain's greatest luxury ceramics company. From here we have a short ride to Trentham Estate. This superb renovated estate features a lake as its centrepiece, surrounded by show gardens, perennials, woodland walks, tree trails, cafes and shops. We continue to our hotel arriving in time for dinner and our overnight stay.


This morning we drive to the former Spa town of Buxton, with its wealth of shops and lovely public gardens. We stay awhile here before moving on for a lunchtime stop in pretty Bakewell, home of the famous 'tart' or pudding, to give it its proper name, before returning home late afternoon.


Great 2 & 3 DAY BREAKS FROM ONLY £112


Our superb selection of twoday departures includes 13 NEW destination to tempt you to try the Johnsons Experience.


Our Great Breaks are the result of many requests from our Day Excursion customers – who don’t necessarily want to holiday by coach but would really enjoy a midweek or weekend away. So, here we are a short but varied selection of short breaks!

Treat yourself, celebrate a special occasion with friends or simply get away from it all for a couple of days, we have a ‘Great Break’ that is just right for you!
