Day One

From your home pick-up you travel to Derby, arriving at our hotel with time to relax before dinner this· evening.

 

Day Two

After breakfast we travel to Chatsworth House, home to the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire, we have included admission to the house and 105 acres garden which features historic and modern waterworks and sculptures, Victorian rock garden and maze. This afternoon we visit Denby Pottery Village where you have time to explore at leisure before returning to your hotel for dinner.

 

Day Three

This morning we visit the National Memorial Arboretum, a 150 acre site which is home to over 330 thought provoking memorials covering both military and civilian associations along with tributes to individuals. Rich in design and symbolism and sympathetic to the lush gardens they inhabit, the memorials and their stories are fascinating. This afternoon we visit Calke Abbey, the house where time stood still, vividly portraying a period in the 20th century when many country houses did not survive to tell their story. Rather than restoring Calke to its former glory, they have undertaken necessary repairs to halt the decay of the house and its collections. As you wander through the mansion, you will discover abandoned rooms, peeling wallpaper and a vast collection of strange and unique objects presented exactly how they were found.

 

Day Four

Today we travel to Bolsover Castle, with spectacular views over Derbyshire, this fairy-tale Stuart Mansion was designed to entertain and impress. Wander the lavish rooms of the Little Castle, explore the romantic ruined terrace range and delight in the views from the wall walk. Afternoon is free for you to explore the local area.

 

Day Five

This morning we enjoy our final breakfast before we begin our journey home with comfort stops enroute.
