Great Houses and Gardens of England

Sep 01-10, 2021

10 days | England | Womens Travel Network

Once upon a time, the stately homes of England were the exclusive privilege of royalty and landed gentry. Now, many of these spectacular homes can be visited, each with a fascinating mix of history, architecture and glamour.

Join Laureen Morris to visit a selection of these stately homes in and around London, Salisbury and Oxford. Hampton Court is England’s grandest Tudor Palace, intended to rival France’s Versailles. Wilton House provides an intriguing insight into the rarefied world of the British aristocracy with centuries of staggering embellishments. Blenheim Palace is the birthplace of Winston Churchill and the masterpiece of England’s greatest gardener, Capability Brown.

We’ll also visit some smaller, but no less fascinating, manor homes including Mompesson House, the location of the 1955 film Sense and Sensibility, and the gorgeous Tudor pile Kelmscott Manor, the summer home of the founder of the Arts and Crafts movement. We’ll be awestruck by the spectacular grandeur of Salisbury Cathedral and enjoy some of the loveliest countryside in the UK as we travel through the Cotswolds.
