Drive to Wiltshire and our included visit to Bowood. The formal terraces and gardens at the front of the house provide abundant colour throughout the season, and a beautiful place to enjoy the landscape beyond. The stately home has a rich history to explore including the family library and chapel, the room where Joseph Priestley discovered oxygen in 1774 and where amazing artefacts and antiques from the family history are on display. Short drive to Swindon for dinner, bed & breakfast


Day 2 Sunday

Just outside Burford we have an included visit to the Cotswold Wildlife Park. In an attractive setting, it is imaginatively laid out and it is possible to get close to about 260 species of animal. We will leave for the homeward journey in the afternoon, after allowing time for lunch (the catering facilities are good).

Near Calne in Wiltshire, Bowood is a stunning Georgian stately home set in hundreds of acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscape and gardens. It has been home to the Lansdowne family for over 260 years and carries a rich and fascinating history. The ‘pleasure grounds’ surrounding the House provide a wonderful experience for families, garden enthusiasts, historians, schools or holidaymakers. We also visit Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens which exhibits over 260 different species of animal and is the largest privately owned zoological collection in the UK.
