These trips are a popular feature of our programme. In 2018, seven one-day tours will be offered, not necessarily visiting a National Trust property. Travel is normally by an 'executive' standard coach operated by Chandlers of Westbury or Reac Coach co.. The tours are also publicised in the February Newsletter, which contains details of the tour, the pick-up points and a booking form for each trip. These tours are open to all current National Trust members but priority is initially given to members of NWWNTA.
In the past, we have visited Covent Garden and a tour of the BBC, the Royal Hospital Chelsea, Chavenage House and Newark Park(NT), Kingston Lacy(NT) and Didcot Steam Centre and Greys Court(NT) to name but a few. There are usually four or five pick up points chosen from Chippenham, Devizes, Melksham, Holt, Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge and Westbury.
The tours for the 2018 season are:-
Day Tour 1 Sunday 08 April 2018 Greenwich
Day Tour 2 Thursday 17 May 2018 RHS Wisley
Day Tour 3 Wednesday 13 June 2018 Bristol: New Room, Blue Glass and Arnos Vale Cemetery
