Description

Acorn TV is pleased to be partnering in 2018 with Transcendent Travel to present “The Best of Acorn TV: A 7-Day Tour of England” for you, our loyal Acorn TV fans & subscribers. You’ll have a chance to visit the beautiful and historical production locations for our most popular series—Doc Martin, Midsomer Murders, Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Agatha Raisin and more!

THE BEST OF ACORN TV WAS MORE THAN JUST A TOUR, IT WAS A SNEAK PEAK INTO AGATHA CHRISTIE’S DRESSING ROOM, CHATTING WITH TV PERSONALITIES, HOISTING A BEER AT THE BLACK SWAN AND EATING SCONES WITH A WELL KNOWN AUTHOR, OR TWO. ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE AND RESPONSIVE, ANDREW [LANNERD] KNOWS THE LANDSCAPE AND SHARED HIS PASSION, WHILE HANDLING ALL THE DETAILS. ACORN TV PROVIDED TREMENDOUS SUPPORT, LINING UP TALENT THE REST OF THE WORLD ONLY SEES ON THEIR TV. SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO WITH A CONGENIAL GROUP THAT HELD SIMILAR INTERESTS. MY HUSBAND AND I SAY “JOLLY GOOD” AND THANK YOU!

In partnership with Transcendent: Experience Based Travel, Acorn TV will be hosting as we travel between Windsor, Bath, Cornwall, Sidmouth, Bristol, Oxfordshire and Dorchester while making stops at Windsor Castle, Highclere Castle or Bampton (Downton Abbey), Port Isaac (Doc Martin), the Ashton Court Estate (Agatha Raisin) and the Greenway Estate (Agatha Christie’s home).

The Acorn TV and Transcendent team will be with you every step of the way to help make connections between our tour stops and the great British programs you’ve become fans of on Acorn TV. We’ll have a couple of special “behind-the-scenes” moments planned, including a visit with a cast member(s) of some of your favorite Acorn programs. We’ll also have a special surprise guest meet us at Agatha Christie’s summer home, The Greenway Estate.

In addition, guests will be staying at some sumptuous hotels, exploring lavish homes and gardens and enjoying fine dining along the way.

In our book, traveling is about creating a blend of unique experiences, paired with delicious meals and superior accommodations. In this tour you can be assured of all three – alongside our personal touches and attention to detail which will ensure your enjoyment of the experience.

We do hope you’ll join us for one of these remarkable England tours in July & September 2018!
