Next AVAILABLE Trip - Boughton House
Our next trip is to Boughton House and Gardens on Tuesday 17th September 2019 Cost £35 per person payable by cash or cheque (made payable to ROT U3A Social).
Located in the heart of England this remarkable house is a blend of the intimate and the grand, drawing its inspiration from the Palace of Versailles. Its village-like Tudor courtyards contrast with its palatial 18th century additions, earning it the title ‘The English Versailles’ which inspired filmmakers at Universal to use Boughton House in the latest film adaption of Les Miserables.
The ticket price includes return travel by coach, a 2 hour guided ‘Kings Tour’ of the house and a Hot Buffet Lunch in the converted 18th century stable block.
The Kings Tour is designed for the enthusiast covering 20 rooms and also ascends the grand entrance staircase to include the High Pavilion and State Apartments created for the visit of William III.
Highlights include: Painting Masterpieces, English and French furniture, tapestries, porcelain, silver, armoury and beautiful ceiling paintings.
