A NIGHT AWAY IN FEBRUARY
Sunday 10th/Monday 11th February 2019
We make our way to Bournemouth with coffee stop enroute.
A choice of some retail therapy or optional visit (£6.50) to
Russell Cotes Art Gallery & Museum.
In 1901 Merton Russell-Cotes gave his wife Annie a dream house on a cliff-top, overlooking the sea.
It was an extraordinary, extravagant birthday present – lavish, splendid, and with a touch of fantasy. They filled this exotic seaside villa with beautiful objects from their travels across the world, and lined the walls with a remarkable collection of British art, creating a unique atmosphere in a most dramatic setting.
A home, an art gallery, and a museum. Then they sealed it in time, and gave it to the future.
Our hotel in Bournemouth is the Best Western Hotel Royale
There is a small indoor pool but you have to go outside to access.
After a leisurely breakfast we make our way to Kingston Lacey
(National Trust) where the ground floor rooms will be open and hopefully the snowdrops out.
After we will visit the sub-tropical gardens at Abbotsbury where the micro-climate should have some early flowering plants.
