Hampshire is the perfect blend of city, coast and country. Blessed with the natural beauty of two National Parks, thriving culture, with history and heritage at its heart. Staying just outside Winchester, England’s ancient capital is a city steeped in history, offering rich pickings for those looking to uncover Britain’s past. We visit The Vyne in Basingstoke, a former Tudor powerhouse turned 17th century family home, set in gardens, woodlands and wetlands.
Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.
