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.

Brewery Centre and National Memorial Arboretum

This trip is now SOLD OUT.

On 12th June we will be going on a visit To the National Brewery Centre at Burton on Trent where we take the “Full Flagon” guided tour with a visit to their museum. The tour culminates in a beer tasting session (soft drinks are available as an alternative) followed by a two-course lunch (included in the ticket cost).

We then whisk you off to the National Memorial Arboretum to take a leisurely ride on their Land Train. This will provide you with lovely views across the landscape & some of the 300 plus memorials. After the tour there will be time to visit the shop & café before boarding the coach home.
