Cities in the Heart of England

Cities in the Heart of England

A new tour including visits to Nottingham, Leicester, Derby and Lichfield.

Holiday Highlights:







We depart from your home area in
the morning travelling to Derbyshire and arriving
late afternoon at Hallmark Mickleover Court


We start the day with a drive south to
the City of Lichfield where there is much to see
and do particularly within the stunning Lichfield
Cathedral set in a remarkable and serene close.
This afternoon we ride through pleasant
countryside to the City of Derby with its famous
links to the railway where we have time to
explore before we return later to the hotel.


In 2012 the City of Leicester
gained world-wide fame when the remains of
King Richard III were discovered in the heart of
the city beneath a council car park. Although
now best known as Richard’s last resting place,
Leicester has a very interesting past and this
can be discovered in the many museums and
historic churches. On a modern note the city has
a bustling centre with all the big High Street
stores to tempt you.


For our final city visit we head for
Nottingham. The county town has a huge
market square and surrounding streets have
stately buildings from the city’s heyday. One of
Nottingham’s heroes was Robin Hood, and his
story can be followed at the Tales of Robin Hood
exhibition. Shopaholics are catered for in two
retail centres, Broadmarsh and Victoria.


After breakfast we leave for home.
