We enjoy a guided tour of its stunning interiors before we have free time to explore the beautiful grounds and have lunch in the Brewhouse tearoom.

This morning, we visit the historic city of Winchester. Here we can explore the medieval cathedral and all the city has to offer. In the afternoon, we make the short journey to Jane Austen’s House Museum. We get a sense for how she lived and can see many personal items, ranging from books and letters to pieces of furniture, clothing and paintings.

Today, we travel to Salisbury for free time surrounded by history. An absolute must is the cathedral with its ornate 13th century spire and, most impressively, an original copy of Magna Carta.
