Peak District Tour 2023

The destination for our Spring Tour 2023 will be the Peak District. Located mostly in Derbyshire, the Peak District includes the UK’s first national park, famous for its scenic hills, moorlands and dales. En route, we will spend a day touring in the Cotswolds and on the return journey there will be an overnight stay near Coventry.
Saturday 22 April
After meeting for breakfast near Chichester, the tour will start with a suggested scenic route to a traditional country hotel on the Oxfordshire edge of the Cotswolds, where we will stay for 2 nights. The route will allow us to arrive in plenty of time to meet for a drink in the bar before dinner.
Sunday 23 April
A full day to explore the Cotswolds AONB.
A suggested scenic route including places of interest and a recommended lunch stop will be provided, or you can make your own plans for the day.
We will then return to the hotel for dinner.

The tour will continue with a suggested route to our main destination in the Peak District, where we have exclusive use of a small hotel located in the picturesque Hope Valley for 4 nights
