The scope of the trip is wide ranging with visits to Sherborne Castle, Kingston Lacy, where we have an exclusive guided tour, and several important museums in the area together with an opportunity to explore Poundbury.

The price includes coach travel from Leamington Spa, breakfast and dinner at the hotel as outlined, together with the services of a Blue Badge tour guide from Brookland Travel. It also includes a donation to FLAG to enable us to continue our support of Leamington Art Gallery and Museum.
