Bank Holiday Weekend Day Trip

Bank Holiday Weekend Day Trip

Need a day out during the May Bank Holiday weekend? See the charms of Arundel in West Sussex or choose our trip with admission included to the magnificent Arundel Castle.

The picturesque market town captures the essence of heritage, urban chic and country pursuits, all within a stone’s throw of London. Discover the heritage of the town’s one thousand year history as you browse its town centre, which offers plenty for every kind of shopper with a plethora of antique shops, boutiques and art galleries.

Dominating its skyline is Arundel Castle. Set in 40 acres of sweeping grounds and commanding views across the South Downs, the castle has a significant history. Since 1067 it has been the seat of the Duke of Norfolk, and today houses a grand and rare collection of furniture, paintings, tapestries and more in the carefully preserved rooms, from the Armoury and Barons’ Hall to the beautiful Regency library.

For the Bank Holiday Weekend, the Castle goes back in time to 1475 and will be filled with the sounds of battle and conflict to show the importance of artillery in taking a castle, and as a battle field weapon, skirmishes between the two sides and crafts, costumes and armour of the period.

Stewarts Tours have a day trip to Arundel, or Castle Siege 2017 at Arundel Castle on Saturday 27th May 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.


New for 2017! ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’ at Kensington Palace

There’s never been a better time to visit Kensington Palace, with 2017 honouring the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales marked by celebration of some of her most beautiful outfits. Our day trip is an unmissable opportunity to get a closer look at the ‘people’s princess’s’ chic outfits and discover the evolution of her image and style. 

You’ll explore the historic royal abode which was a place of unique significance in her life; the place she called home from 1981 and today the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, and view the celebrated outfits from throughout her life which will be on display.

Highlights of the visit include the glamorous evening gowns worn on engagements in the 1980s and the chic suits that made up her ‘working wardrobe’ in the 1990s, the pale pink Emanuel blouse worn for her engagement portrait by Lord Snowdon in 1981 and Victor Edelstein’s iconic ink blue velvet gown, famously worn at the White House.

Other attractions at Kensington Palace include the Queen’s State Apartments where you can explore these cosy, private rooms that were once used by Queen Mary II for relaxation, and The King’s State Apartments, a sumptuous set of rooms each grander than the last, and the Palace Gardens are an intimate, tranquil and secluded oasis where the highlight is the Sunken Garden.

Stewarts Tours have a day trip to ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’ at Kensington Palace on Wednesday 24th May 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.
