Staying at The Double Tree by Hilton Milton Keynes
2 DAYS | 22nd June 2019
An exciting new addition for this year, why not join us on our visit to the Woburn Abbey Garden Show. Set in Woburn Abbey’s beautifully landscaped gardens, the show offers unparalleled access to award-winning exhibitors and nurseries that have been handpicked by Woburn. The displays are complemented by an array of live entertainment, artisan foods, shopping, demonstrations, informative talks and gardening advice, tips and tours. Our weekend break also takes us to the fabulous Waddesdon Manor, a French Renaissance-style château built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in 1874 to entertain the fashionable world and to house his collection of fine art. The Victorian style gardens boast flamboyant colours on the parterre, ornate fountains and statuary and a rococo style Aviary.
Our base for the tour is The Double Tree by Hilton Milton Keynes featuring stylish accommodation with up to date facilities, including a well equipped gym, terrace bar and restaurant.
We depart Macclesfield calling for coffee en-route to Waddesdon Manor. Arriving just before lunch, we will spend the remainder of the day at Waddesdon giving you time to visit the house and garden. The garden should be a riot of colour at this time of year with the rose garden full of flower and scent. There are several places to have lunch including a café and restaurant, and also a shop for you to browse. (NT members free, non-members £18.00 please state at the time of booking if you are a member.) Late afternoon we take the short journey to our hotel. Dinner and evening at leisure.
After a relaxing breakfast we head to Woburn Abbey for their annual Garden Show. You can visit the private gardens of the Duke and Duchess of Bedford, take a free garden tour, spend time in the luxury gift and artisan food hall, sit and listen to the Bedford Town Band or maybe enjoy lunch in the Sculpture Gallery or in either of the tea rooms. Whether you are an enthusiastic horticulturist or just looking for inspiration Woburn Garden Show has it all. Mid-afternoon we board the coach and head for home. We make a comfort stop en-route and aim to arrive in the Macclesfield area in the early evening.
