Lacock Village & Abbey – Wednesday 3rd May 2017
Step back in time at Lacock, which remains largely unspoiled by the trappings of the 21st century. Explore the lime washed half-timbered and stones houses which have featured in the 2007 BBC production of Cranford and the 1995 BBC production of Pride and Prejudice, plus Lacock Abbey in the heart of the pretty village. A leisurely and interesting day out is guaranteed.

Mottisfont – Thursday 15th June 2017
Located near Romsey, ancient trees, babbling brooks and rolling lawns frame this lovely old house, an 18th century home with a medieval priory at its heart. Artists came here to relax and create their works, some still visible in the historic rooms. The gardens are a feast for all senses all year round, and it’s during this time of year that their world-famous collection of old fashioned roses flower.

Sissinghurst Gardens and Cream Tea – Tuesday 11th July 2017
This internationally renowned garden was developed by Vita Sackville-West and Sir Harold Nicolson around the surviving parts of an Elizabethan mansion. It comprises small enclosed compartments, with colour throughout the season resulting in a romantic atmosphere. The layers of colour, intimacy of different garden ‘rooms’ and rich herbaceous borders are the epitome of an English garden and provide an ever-changing picture through the seasons. A Cream Tea consisting of Fresh Scones, clotted cream and Strawberry jam, tea (supplied by Taylors of Harrogate) or coffee will be served in the Granary Restaurant.

Seaside and Coastal Day Trips

Seaside and Coastal Day Trips

A day out to the coast may be all you need for a short escape, and our day trips coming up soon have something for everyone. Take your pick from venturing further afield to Guernsey or exploring the iconic coastlines along the Jurassic Coast, to simply enjoying the sandy beaches of Dorset…

Guernsey – Wednesday 19th April 2017
Why not first treat yourself to some fantastic Duty Free shopping on board Condor’s ferry, before arriving at St Peter Port in Guernsey, one of the most unique Channel Islands. You might think you’re a world away from a city in the UK with stunning bays, cobbled streets and quaint shops making it feel more like you’re abroad. Approximately 3½ hours free time will be given to admire the sheer beauty of one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns.

Weymouth – Sunday 23rd April 2017
A seaside atmosphere abounds this favourite coastal destination. Take in the views of the spectacular Jurassic Coastline and walk along the esplanade, where its Georgian buildings make for a beautiful backdrop against the golden beaches.

Swanage and River Cruise – Thursday 4th May 2017
Departing from Poole for a return journey, this day trip will take you past the start of the Jurassic Heritage Coast, sailing past Old Harry Rocks and on past Ballard Down into Swanage Pier. Offering glorious views of the beach from Europe’s largest harbour, free time is also included at Swanage, a quaint seaside town with Victorian charm and a Blue Flag beach.

Eastbourne – Tuesday 13th June 2017
Unwind at this timeless English seaside town. Sheltered by the South Downs, it enjoys a milder climate, basking in sunnier weather than other mainland and exudes seaside charm. Victorian hotels, the charming Victorian pier and picturesque promenade run alongside the famous shingle beaches. Maybe visit the elegant gardens, or delve into its rich history at some of its museums.

The Royal Mint Visitor Centre

The Royal Mint Visitor Centre

With the new 12-sided £1 coin now in circulation, why not go behind-the-scenes to see another side to the coins in your pocket? Gain unprecedented access on our day trip to the Royal Mint Visitor Centre.

The purpose-built attraction in Wales opened to visitors just last year, to illustrate the inner workings of the Royal Mint for the first time in its 1,000-year history. Offering the finest craftsmanship and cutting-edge techniques, they make coins and medals for over 60 countries – and it was here that they worked to strike the new ground-breaking £1 coin, the most secure in the world.

Thousands of glistening coins will be hot off the press as the guided factory experience will take you behind the journey of producing every coin. From the craftsmanship that goes into each miniature work of art, to the precision of striking over 700 coins per minute, this is a unique opportunity to learn something new about one of our oldest institutions, Britain’s oldest manufacturer.

Stewarts Tours have a day trip to Monmouth and the Royal Mint Visitor Centre on Wednesday 26th April 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.

We are listening…

We are listening…

We have received some feedback from our Day Tours Trippers and have added Calcot to our collections.

Understanding people do not wish to spend their day trips sitting on a coach collecting the other passengers, we selected four collection points. Bracknell Station, Wokingham; Broad Street, Woodley; Reading Road and the Vastern Road at Reading Station. 
Each collection point chosen due to locality, accessibility and the ease of our customers to get too; whilst also being a direct route either up or down the country for your day trip.

After consideration and feedback from our customers, we are delighted to add Calcot, Bath Road to our collection points. The Mayfield Avenue bus stops are where we shall pick up from and drop down; keeping things simple and easy.

It does not add too much time to the collection run and provides you, our Day Trippers with another option for collection.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0118 322 4655 or email us your feedback to sales@stewartstours.co.uk - our brochure can be found HERE.
