Saturday

This morning we visit the medieval market town of Tewkesbury with its picturesque riverside setting where you can stroll along Church Street, lined with half-timbered houses and famous alleyways. You may wish to visit the museum or beautiful 12th century Norman built Abbey. Built to house Benedictine monks in 1121, the Abbey’s long nave and large Romanesque tower are certainly distinguishing features. This afternoon we return to Gloucester where you may choose to visit the Cathedral (where some of the Harry Potter movies were filmed) or you may prefer the "The House of the Tailor of Gloucester", a charming museum and quaint shop based on Beatrix Potter’s famous stories.

Sunday

Today we will enjoy a scenic drive through the Cotswolds, a unique area of 790 square miles - the country’s largest officially designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty". The area is well known for its gentle hillsides(Wolds), outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being so "typically English" where time has stood still for over 300 years. We will stop in some of the lovely villages along the way before heading home.
