Serenity & Speed in Surrey

Our super new packaged tour of Surrey includes visits to the Edwardian retreat of Polesden Lacey, the fascinating Brooklands Museum, Denbies Wine Estate and the beautiful gardens of Painshill as well as a Thames River cruise – all not to be missed!
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Polesden Lacey (NT) & Denbies Wine Estate
Our day starts with a visit to Polesden Lacey, the perfect Edwardian retreat where the Queen Mother spent her honeymoon. With glorious views across the rolling Surrey hills, it was home to the famous Edwardian hostess, Mrs Greville, who entertained royalty and the celebrities of her time. With a glittering Gold Saloon designed to impress kings and maharajahs and an extensive collection of art and ceramics ranging from world-famous Dutch old masters to sparkling Fabergé objects, the house is a treat to explore. In the afternoon, we visit Denbies Wine Estate, where we enjoy a 50 minute classic wine tasting tour, starting with an introductory video in the indoor cinema before we pass through the working winery with our guide, finishing with a guided tasting of Denbies classic wine.

Day 3 Brooklands Museum
We visit Brooklands Museum today, the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, and the home of Concorde. Opened in 1907, Brooklands is steeped in history and has spawned many great pioneers, drivers, aviators and engineers. Highlights include the museum, which features the Aircraft Factory and charts the history of aircraft manufacture. With aircraft displays, sheds, structures and monuments to explore, there is much to see here.

Day 4 Painshill & Thames River Cruise
This morning, we visit Painshill, England's most elegant 18th century landscape garden. On arrival, we enjoy refreshments before a guided introductory tour taking in the stunning garden landscape from the best viewpoints, and we gain exclusive access to the sparkling Crystal Grotto. In the afternoon, we travel to Hampton Court to embark on a short river cruise to Kingston upon Thames, from where we rejoin our coach and return to our hotel.

After breakfast, we make our way home.
