Day 2

Pie & Pint in Melton Mowbray
This morning we travel to the historic market town of Melton Mowbray, famous for its pork pie and speciality cheeses. We visit Ye Olde Pie Shoppe where we watch a DVD demonstration on how to make a pork pie and we have the chance to visit The Melton Cheeseboard shop to taste and buy the area's most famous cheeses, before strolling around
the town and the Saturday market. In the afternoon we enjoy a guided tour at Belvoir Brewery followed by a tasting of three ales and a buffet of homemade and local produce, including pork pie, stilton and homemade chutney and pickles.

Day 3

Barnsdale Gardens, Oakham & Rutland Water
Today we visit beautiful Barnsdale Gardens, created by Britain's best loved gardener, the late Geoff Hamilton, star of Gardener's World, before travelling to the pretty, traditional English market town of Oakham - look out for the unusual stocks - the five hole stocks are somewhat of a mystery! We end the day with a relaxing afternoon tea cruise on Rutland Water with tea, coffee and scones with jam & cream

Day 4

King Richard III Visitor Centre & Departure
Before making our way home, we visit the King Richard III Visitor Centre which charts the story of the king's life and death, revealing one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told. The centre is a stone's throw away from Leicester Cathedral and the tomb of King Richard

Day 5

Once breakfast is over, we check out of the hotel and we head home where one of our Door to Door vehicles will return you home.
