Staying at the 4* Bull Hotel
2 DAYS | 6th July 2019
Experience the world’s largest annual flower show in the setting of an historic palace; this year’s RHS Hampton Court Flower Show transforms 25 acres of parkland into a blaze of colour. Garden lovers can marvel at the beautiful flowers and the innovative conceptual gardens showcasing the next big name! Watch demonstrations by celebrity gardeners, pick up new ideas and learn how to implement them via a variety of talks and demonstrations. During the weekend we also visit Blenheim Palace, a masterpiece of Baroque architecture, with gilded state rooms, priceless collections, stunning parkland and magnificent gardens.
Our base for the weekend is the 4* Bull Hotel situated in the charming town of Gerrards Cross. The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment programme and now offers a modern bar, pleasant lounge area and super restaurant. All bedrooms are en-suite with modern facilities including TV, courtesy tea tray, and telephone. The hotel also has a lift.
We depart Macclesfield in the morning calling for coffee en-route to Blenheim Palace. Home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is a masterpiece of Baroque architecture that boasts over 300 years of history to discover. This World Heritage Site is set within more than 2000 acres of Parkland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown, and the Palace itself houses one of the finest collections of antique furniture. We have time to visit the Palace, gardens and parkland before heading south and onto our hotel. Dinner and evening at leisure.
After breakfast we depart for Hampton Court Palace, where we spend the full day at the flower show. If you would prefer to visit the Palace instead we are happy to deduct the cost of the flower show allowing you to pay direct at the Palace (Please state at the time of booking). We head for home late afternoon making a comfort stop en-route. We aim to arrive in Macclesfield late evening.
