You can pick from one of the following holidays:
The Golden Hills of Suffolk – 1st October 2012 – Price £555
Mrs Pretty had unearthed one of the biggest archaeological finds of the 20th Century, a discovery that was to give future historians a wealth of detail from an age slipping into myth and legend. In the recovered Viking longship, near existing Anglo-Saxon burial grounds, the mightiest treasure haul of a century was uncovered. The ceremonial helmets recall Valhalla, and the story of King Raedwald of East Angles resonates with songs of Beowulf. Golden symbols, insignia and swords tell tales with silent tongues and vanquished gods are summoned from mists of distant past.
Llandudno – The Queen of Resorts – 8th October 2012 – Price £445
The Queen of Resorts’ treasury bristles with gems, hoarding traditional holiday pleasures inside a ‘beautiful haven of peace’, as the town’s motto rightfully declares. The jester, Mr Punch retains residence, holding court on the elegant Edwardian promenade whilst donkeys ferry precious cargo of visitors along the beach, past a pier described as ‘Maharaja’s Palace, floating on a lake’ where denizens of leisure are entertained by the fun of the fair.
Captivating Cornwall – 14th October 2012 – Price £499
There’ll be time at liberty in Bodmin to enjoy a cream tea if your conscience allows, or to learn more about this fascinating area that was once the most important religious centre in Cornwall, drawing pilgrims from throughout the land to visit the shrine of St Petroc, the ‘Captain of Cornish Saints’. In Falmouth there are bigger fish to fry on the quayside where trawlers supply local restaurants with the catch of the day, and whilst at leisure, you might care to visit the National Maritime Museum where extensive displays and exhibitions capture Cornwall’s seafaring history. It would be criminal to miss our scenic tour of picturesque St. Mawes and St. Just in Roseland, or for that matter a chance to explore Truro and its gothic-revival Cathedral.
Cotswolds and Pudding Club Pleasures – 21st October 2012 – Price £525
Romantic townships and picturesque landscapes in the Cotswolds attract visitors from around the globe who wish to catch an authentic glimpse of Olde England and see how it compares to our great literary exports. From Alexander Pope to T.S. Eliot, this Area of Outstanding Beauty has inspired poets, playwrights and authors to evoke the spirit of England through countryside, culture and characters that remain imbedded in the popular imagination. The Sixteenth Century birthplace of William Shakespeare in Stratford upon Avon is a point of pilgrimage for those who wish to learn more about our national bard, whilst Stow-on-the-Wold’s history stretches back much further, with Stone and Bronze Age burial mounds a common site amongst houses made from Cotswold stone. Market day at Moreton-in-Marsh has been a trading centre for over 700 years and Bourton-on-the-Water’s beautiful bridges and river capture the timeless charm of country living. Visits to Tudor Snowshill Manor and Gardens and the village of Broadway complete this memorable tour of the Heart of England.
Barnstaple Beauty and the Bees – 21st October – Price £425
Delicious scenery, sparkling crystal, and succulent sights of Exmoor are the buzz words as we return to this SwanTour client favourite hotspot where there’s finger-licking fun in store for everyone. At the Royal Fortescue in Barnstaple, it’s tempting to call out ‘Honey, I’m home.’ As eyes glaze over with sweet satisfaction, the mind may wander to delicacies at the delicatessen waiting in the Pannier Market where Butchers Row holds a whole lot more than a string of sausages. Barnstaple’s market day offers a bunfest of variety, with stalls that tempt like a cookie jar, which, if you’re lucky, you might find made at the wonderful glassworks of Dartington Crystal where experts transform a molten, sticky substance into world-famous glass.
