Tutbury Castle, Bletchley Park & Woburn Abbey

Tutbury Castle, Bletchley Park & Woburn Abbey

4 Days Holiday to Wonderful Tutbury Castle, Woburn Abbey, Bletchley Park, The Shuttleworth Collection, Easton Walled Gardens. No Single Supplement

 

Wonderful Tutbury Castle is a largely ruined medieval castle, owned by HM The Queen. Seat of Earls and Dukes of Lancaster, Tutbury was also one of the great centres of power in medieval England. It was visited by many English Kings, and home to the great John of Gaunt, 2nd Duke of Lancaster. www.tutburycastle.com

 

Margaret Thatcher Charismatic curator, Lesley Smith is well known for her highly entertaining costumed portrayals of a variety of historical characters. Admired by many and loathed by others, Margaret Thatcher is one of the most striking political figures in living memory. Lesley portrays this extraordinary woman to many of whom remember the Thatcher years. Using the words of Margaret Thatcher herself, we will hear her describe her journey to Number 10 Downing Street. From roots in a grocer’s shop in Grantham, she succeeded in doing what would have been unthinkable even twenty years earlier, becoming Britain’s first female prime minister. Her firm handling, both of the Conservative party and of government policy meant she could also be a contentious figure, going down in history as ‘The Iron Lady’.
