Day 2

After breakfast, we make our way to Turk's Pier at Hampton Court Palace, just a few metres from the Palace itself, meaning we get a good view of the stunning, Grade I listed royal palace - the most famous residence of Henry VIII. From here, we board our river boat for a relaxing 35 minute cruise down the scenic stretch of the glorious River Thames to Kingston. We disembark next to Kingston Bridge, in the heart of this lovely town. A popular shopping destination, we have some free time to enjoy Kingston's shops, which range from familiar high street stores to quirky independents and a bustling marketplace for good measure. Before we hit the shops, we can enjoy lunch in one of the many pubs dotted along the riverside to make the most of our scenic surroundings. All shopped out, we rejoin our coach later this afternoon and head to Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, in the heart of the beautiful Surrey Hills. We begin our evening visit with an exclusive 50 minute vineyard train tour, taking in some of the most beautiful viewing points as we trundle around this idyllic vineyard while sipping on a glass of specially selected Denbies award-winning Sparkling Cuvee. A recorded informative commentary enhances this memorable experience, while cameras are a must-remember so we can capture breathtaking panoramic Denbies Estate and North Downs vistas! After, we take our seats in the elegant Gallery Restaurant, located on the third floor of the winery with stunning views over the 265 acre vineyard, Box Hill and the North Downs. We soak in our gorgeous surrounds as we tuck into a lovely three-course meal at sunset. The Gallery team create seasonal menus with ingredients sourced from local suppliers in the south-east, so we're in for a tasty experience!

Day 3

After breakfast, we begin our journey home with the option of making a pitstop at the historic market town of Windsor en route. The gem here is the fabulous Windsor Castle, built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror and the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. We can use our free time to explore the royal residence, where the Queen chooses to spend most of her private weekends or make way into the town - immediately below the castle walls - to browse the shops and eateries.
