2NT PST- Cruise ENGLISH MANOR RETREAT

Revel in the pastoral tranquillity of a unique hotel - a refined retreat with more than a few surprises. Set in 240 acres of picturesque parkland on the borders of Windsor Great Park, Coworth Park blends the warmth and comfort of a traditional country house hotel with an eccentric spirit that is undeniably English and irrefutably modern.


Please check with your travel professional for details regarding visa requirements for England. It is the responsibility of the guest to obtain all appropriate visas before your cruise.


DAY 1 - ARRIVE COWORTH PARK

Following disembarkation, the local Silversea representative directs you to your waiting transportation for the transfer to the heart of Berkshire.


Coworth Park House is a handsome Georgian building dating back to 1776. It is perhaps best known as the home of the 17th Earl of Lord Derby who bought it in 1899 and lived there for almost 50 years until his death in 1948. An association with equestrianism began even before he bought the estate; the Prince and Princess of Wales, the future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra stayed there in 1879 and 1883 to enjoy the racing at nearby Ascot.


The rest of the afternoon and evening are at your leisure to enjoy this historic home that has welcomed royalty and other notables for centuries. Lunch and dinner are on your own account. If you'd like to dine in the hotel's fine dining restaurant during your stay, these arrangements should be made well in advance.


Overnight at Coworth Park


DAY 2 - COWORTH PARK

A hearty English breakfast awaits you in the morning. Today is completely at your leisure to be as active or relaxed as you wish.


Outdoor enthusiasts can find plenty to do - there are rambling trails that cover the 240-acre grounds, the on-site equestrian centre gives lesson in riding, Guards Polo Academy at Coworth Park gives polo lessons, and tennis, fishing, shooting, and croquet can all be arranged. Golfers might be interested in teeing up at The Wentworth Club, and the historic royal hunting ground of Windsor Great Park is within walking distance. At Runnymede, the Royal Air Force Memorial is serene, beautiful and poignant, with impressive views of the Thames. The UK's most famous racecourse, Ascot, is a mere 10-minute drive away.


Both lunch and dinner today are on your own account. The UK's foodiest village, Bray, is about 25-minutes away and offers everything from Michelin-starred fine dining to gourmet gastropub fare.
