Highgrove & High Class Motors

The honey-coloured picture-postcard Cotswolds are our
destination in our classy packaged tour to one of the prettiest
rural areas in England. Based at the excellent Cheltenham Chase
Hotel, we visit the famous Morgan Motor Company, timberframed
Ledbury, medieval Tewkesbury and glorious Gloucester,
as well as the flamboyant Painswick Rococo Gardens and the
stunning Royal Gardens at Highgrove.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Morgan Motor Company & Ledbury
We spend this morning at the magnificent Morgan Motor Company where we
enjoy a 2 hour guided tour of the factory, watching skilled craftsmen at work as
they hand make the famous Morgan bespoke sports cars. In the afternoon, we visit
the timber-framed village of Ledbury where we explore its Heritage Centre, Butchers
Row Folk Museum and the Painted Room leading to the fine parish church.

Day 3 Tewkesbury & Gloucester
Today we explore the medieval town of Tewkesbury in its picturesque riverside
setting. Attractions include ‘Out of the Hat’, an exquisite example of a 17th
century home and shop that now houses a Heritage Centre, Church Street, lined
with half-timbered houses, Tewkesbury Museum and Tewkesbury Abbey. After
lunch, we travel to Gloucester where we spend free time exploring its medieval
Cathedral (used in most of the Harry Potter films as ‘Hogwarts’) or visiting
the Victorian docks and the award winning Gloucester Waterways Museum
overlooking the River Severn.

Day 4 Highgrove Gardens & Painswick Rococo Garden
Today, we enjoy a guided tour of the Royal Gardens at Highgrove (subject

Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. Led by an expert guide, we are provided with
a unique insight into family life on the estate and tales of how HRH has crafted
