We depart Plymouth at 8.30am and make our way to Sanders Garden World for a coffee stop. From here we head to Bristol for our afternoon visit to Brunel’s SS Great Britain. The SS Great Britain is 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. We will then continue onto our hotel to check in and relax before our first evening meal.

Today we will visit Berkeley Castle one of the most remarkable buildings in Britain steeped in over 860 years of British history. A hidden gem which dominates the Vale of Berkeley in the Cotswolds, this historic Castle dates back to 1117 and is still the home of the Berkeley family. Over 24 generations of Berkeley have transformed this former Norman fortress into a lovely home featuring landscaped gardens and a butterfly house. We will return to our hotel in plenty of time for our evening meal.

Wednesday

After breakfast we will head for Spetchley Park Gardens. As with Berkeley Castle, this lovely historic garden is still owned by the Berkeley family, and has been their home for over 400 years. Successive generations have lovingly collected and planted rare plants from around the world, creating one of the largest private collections of plant varieties outside the major botanical gardens. We will leave here mid - late afternoon, aiming to be back into Plymouth early evening.
