English Heritage 7 day tour
Some of the most beautiful historic buildings in England are owned and maintained by English Heritage.
With an Overseas Visitor’s Pass from English Heritage you can visit as many of these attractions as you like. You just buy the pass at the beginning and start saving money! Sometimes in as little as two visits you will have saved money compared to paying for entry each time.
A 9 day pass currently costs £43 for two adults and a 16 day pass costs £52. Individual and family passes are also available. You can purchase your pass from Spaceships when you make your booking or when you come to collect your vehicle.
You will be spoilt for choice with over 100 English Heritage attractions to choose from. This itinerary takes in some of the highlights.
Head south from London to the 1066 Battle of Hastings Abbey and Battlefield, home of the most important battle ever fought on English soil. Move further along the coast in the afternoon and visit Dover Castle. Occupying what is surely one of the most impressive positions of any castle in England, Dover Castle remains remarkably in tact. The castle has an eventful history, hosting many monarchs and playing a part in WWII.
Take in some of the beautiful south coast scenery on your way to Portsmouth for the ferry to the Isle of Wight. If you have time visit the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth (free to walk around).
Spend most of the day today at the stunning Osbourne House. “It’s hard to imagine a prettier spot” were the words of Queen Victoria when talking about this place.
This was a family home and shows a more intimate view of one of Britain’s most important monarchs. If you can drag yourself away from Osbourne House then spend the afternoon at Carisbrooke Castle. This was where King Charles I was imprisoned after losing the English Civil War.
Take a ferry to the mainland, this time crossing from Yarmouth to Lymington. Head north to Sailsbury to see the cathedral and then up to Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also nearby is the interesting Woodhenge.
North again today through Oxford to Wrest Park to see one of England’s most beautiful (and least well known) gardens. If you have time get to Cambridge by evening and take in the awe inspiring Kings College Chapel.
Spend the morning in Cambridge and then head just down the road to Audley End House, one of England’s grandest stately homes.
Drive back to North London today and visit Kenwood House in Hampstead Heath. Take a walk up to Parliament Hill for some fantastic views of London.
Return your Spaceship.
You can do this trip with an English Heritage 9-day Overseas Visitor’s Pass for £43. The equivalent cost for individual entry to each attraction is £147!
