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, 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 two or three pick-up points chosen from Chippenham, Devizes, Melksham, Holt, The Milk Churn and Westbury.
The tours for the 2019 season are:-
Day Tour 1 Tuesday 9 April Hereford & Gloucester Farm Shop
Day Tour 2 Thursday 1 May The Donkey Sanctuary, A La Ronde (NT), Exmouth
