Description

In partnership with Transcendent: Experience Based Travel, WFYI will be hosting you for 7 magnificent days as we travel between London and Cornwall making stops to see gorgeous interiors at Highclere Castle, Hampton Court Palace, and The Greenway Estate, as well as memorable exteriors in the villages of Bampton and Port Isaac. The WFYI 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 come to love on Public Television.

In between “scouting locations” with us you’ll have time for exploring shopping and dining on your own. But, we are really looking forward to spending a fantastic time together making that change from looking at someone else’s pictures and videos to making your own.

SINCERELY,

STEPHANIE COLLINS | WFYI

 


ANDREW IS AMAZING. VERY SMOOTH TRIP, HE HANDLED A POTENTIALLY EMBARRASSING SITUATION FOR ME WITH LITTLE FANFARE. OUR ACCOMMODATIONS WERE FABULOUS, THE MEALS WERE WONDERFUL. I NEVER FELT RUSHED. WOULD RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY! CAN’T WAIT TO GO AGAIN.
— Susan Markle

As a lover of PBS and the excellence of British programming, it is a great pleasure to present To The Manor Born, a seven-day tour designed to include many of the sights you know so well from public television and other iconic British programs seen on WNED | WBFO. From the glories of Highclere Castle (as seen in Downton Abbey), the beloved Devon estate of Agatha Christie, to the seaside village in Cornwall used in Doc Martin – this exclsive tour will be a memorable journey for each person involved.

Apart from the enjoyment of the many sights relating to British programming, we will be staying at some wonderful hotels, including Boringdon Hall in Devon.
In my book, traveling is about creating a blend of unique and memorable experiences, paired with delicious meals and superior accommodations. In this tour you can be assured of the combination of all three – alongside our personal touches, which will ensure your enjoyment of the entire experience.
I do hope you’ll join us for this memorable tour, where we will explore together – the very best of England!
