Visit Buckinghamshire & The Chilterns and tourism businesses from across Buckinghamshire, have joined forces once again to make it easier for those organising group travel to learn about the fantastic range of day trips in the county. The collaboration sees a series of trips created offering exceptional value and a great day out, with something for everyone.
More than 15 day trips have been created and include visits to Waddesdon Manor, Hughenden Manor and Stowe National Trust properties and their gardens. There is also a river trip with lunch followed by an afternoon visit and cream tea at Bekonscot Model Village, the world’s oldest and original model village. For TV and literary fans there are trips to see literary greats, Roald Dahl and John Milton, and tours that take in the Midsomer Murders locations, including a steam train ride at Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway – the setting for many scenes in the TV series.
Visitors can come and discover the historical heritage of Buckinghamshire with a visit to Bletchley Park, the home of the codebreakers, and learn about life in the Chilterns and the transition from market towns to ‘Metroland’ at Chiltern Open Air Museum and Amersham Museum.
Lucy Dowson, of Visit Buckinghamshire & The Chilterns, said: “Buckinghamshire is the perfect year-round destination for memorable day trips, stretching from the banks of the River Thames through the glorious rolling Chiltern Hills, and on into the verdant Vale of Aylesbury. Its close proximity to London, coupled with excellent road links, means that you can easily access exciting new destinations, discover fabulous attractions and enjoy welcoming hospitality.”
New visits this year also include Aylesbury Waterside Theatre where a backstage tour can be booked on request and the beautiful Stonor Park. Visitors can also learn about Buck’s sporting heritage at two new attractions, the Paralympic Heritage Centre, and the Silverstone Experience.
Included this year for the first time are food and drink pit-stops. A day out could include a stop at Malt The Brewery, or a visit to Griffiths Brothers gin distillery. Alternatively book a lunch or dinner at Midsomer location, Danesfield House Hotel, or enjoy an afternoon tea at The Grange where every penny of profit supports their charity, helping deaf people leave loneliness behind.
This collaboration for the second year running, aims to give the group travel organiser a flavour of what the region has to offer, however, if you are looking for something bespoke, Visit Buckinghamshire & The Chilterns will happily assist.
