Board our coach at your pick-up point this morning, and head to your hotel. You'll arrive in the late afternoon, and then be free to unpack, relax and enjoy your evening.
After breakfast, we'll head to Blenheim Palace for a full day at Countryfile Live.
See the show's star presenters on the Countryfile Live stage, follow your food from farm to table with Farming in Action, meet some of the rare British breeds from Adam's Farm, and see prize livestock and traditional farming and craft demonstrations in the Central Ring.
Elsewhere you'll be able to enjoy country life on the Village Green where you'll find entertainment, an ice cream parlour and the UK's largest pub garden! With over 500 exhibitors offer everything from food and crafts to gardening and country pursuits, Countryfile Live promises to be a day in the country like no other.
Stratford-upon-Avon beckons this morning. Visit the Bard's birthplace, stroll along the river, take a tour of the theatre, and perhaps stop for lunch.
In the afternoon we'll return to the coach and head home, arriving back at your pick-up by early to mid evening.
Please note that Countryfile Live will take place on open parkland. Some temporary trackway is laid, but we advise suitable clothing and footwear, especially in the event of inclement weather.
Coach seating arrangements
Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)
Joining your holiday
Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.
The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
