Day 4

After breakfast return to home area with suitable comfort stops, including free time in Stamford for lunch to be purchased. Stamford is widely regarded as one of the finest stone towns in England. The pretty facades of the town are favourites with film and television producers - Stamford was used as Meryton in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film and has also appeared in Middlemarch, The Da Vinci Code and the Golden Bowl. It is no wonder that visitors come from far and wide to experience Stamford's charm, character and outstanding shopping and restaurants.
