Day 3

We enjoy a leisurely breakfast before we leave and head south for Burton-on-Trent and enjoy a 'Full Flagon Tour' with knowledgeable guide. The tour takes us around the historic museum as we celebrate the history, art and fun of brewing through an interactive experience culminating in a tasting session in the elegant Brewery Tap bar where you can sample some of the award-winning ales brewed on site. A not to be missed attraction.

Day 4

Our first visit today is to Calke Abbey, in Derbyshire. In the care of the National Trust, Calke has been left in a state of disrepair and negligence with little restoration and tells the story of the dramatic decline of a grand country-house estate. Outside there are beautiful yet faded walled gardens, orangery and kitchen gardens to explore. From here we finish the day with a look at nearby Melbourne Hall Garden - The City of Melbourne in Australia takes its name from here.

Day 5

After breakfast we leave and head for home.
