Explore 500 years of British history and discover the stories and heirlooms from the Lytton family’s contributions to literature, politics and foreign service. Afterwards, enjoy a delicious cream tea followed by some free time to wander through the 28-acres of formal gardens, which date back to the 17th century! We will continue to our overnight hotel.

Day 2

After a leisurely breakfast we make our way to Thriplow for the annual Daffodil & Country Fair event. Step back in time and wander through the beautiful traffic free lanes and connecting footpaths as you visit residents ‘open gardens’ with daffodil displays, craft stalls, tearooms, marching bands, vintage cars, live music and perhaps even a bit of Morris dancing! After some free time, we continue our journey home.
