If ever there was a city with a story to tell, it’s Bristol.
Enveloped in the hills of South West England, it has its own unmistakable identity, carved out by passionate locals and spirited fans.
The city straddles the River Avon and its former port is now a vibrant cultural hub.
DAY 1: After completing our local pick-up route we head towards Filton, with suitable lunch and refreshment stops en-route. Aiming to arrive at our hotel in suitable time to freshen up before dinner.
DAY 2: Today we head to The Newt in Somerset for a guided tour of the world-class gardens. Explore the Cottage Garden for a glimpse of Gertrude Jekyll’s famous landscaping style, and see the flowers that scented 19th century gardens in the Victorian area. The Cascade is a contemporary twist on traditional water features, and the Colour Gardens feature hellebores, astrantias and anemones, inspired by garden designer Penelope Hobhouse.
On our return to Bristol, we stop off at Shepton Mallet, a delightful market town. Here you’ll find quaint shops and cafes – a chance to purchase some refreshments and souvenirs.
DAY 3: A guided tour of SS Great Britain is on today’s itinerary. Regarded as the ship that changed the world and is now one of the UK’s best visitor attractions. Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, she was the world’s first iron-hulled, propeller driver ship to successfully cross the Atlantic, and the forerunner of modern passenger liners.
There’s free time after the tour, a chance to explore Bristol Marina and purchase some refreshments.
DAY 4: On the penultimate day, we take a once-in-a-lifetime magical ride on a handsome steam train, travelling through along an eight and a half mile trail through a medieval forest to Parkend on The Dean Forest Railway. A lip-smacking cream tea is served during the journey.
The day will include a stop at Chepstow, which combines the best of ancient and modern – ideal for a spot of sightseeing.
DAY 5: After breakfast, we make our way homeward with suitable lunch and refreshment stops en-route. Aiming to arrive back in Kent late afternoon.
