Sunday, May 1, 2:00 pm – British Landscapes Tour and Southern Charm Tour Information Session

The Shirley-Eustis House and Collette Vacations present an information session on Sunday, May 1, 2011 to announce two very special tours – a British Landscapes Tour and a Southern Charm Tour!

The Shirley-Eustis House is now offering two very special trip opportunities with Collette Vacations. Imagine a ten-day trip to England, Scotland and Wales on the British Landscapes Tour. You will explore London’s Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and the Changing of the Guard. Then you will be whisked away to Scotland to visit Edinburgh Castle, home of the Scottish crown jewels. Finally, you will step into Shakespeare’s world when you arrive at Stratford-Upon-Avon and marvel at the mysteries of Stonehenge and reflect on the wonders of the Roman Baths. This tour takes place October 27 through November 5, 2011.

The other tour offered will be a seven-day tour to Charleston, Savannah, Jekyll Island, St. Augustine, and Jacksonville. Experience true Southern hospitality and charm in Georgia and South Carolina. Your tour will begin in beautiful antebellum Charleston, where magnificent formal gardens grace much of the historic district. You will stop at the battery overlooking Fort Sumter where, on April 12, 1861, the first shots of the Civil War were fired. Of course, there will tours of Southern plantations along the way. A visit to Savannah would not be complete without a visit to Paula Deen’s Candy Kitchen! You will also visit the winter retreat of Jekyll Island – where gilded age families relaxed in their beautiful cottages that are still standing for you to admire. The tour will wrap up with a trip to Jacksonville and St. Augustine, Florida where you will learn about the United States’ oldest city, built in 1565. This tour takes place from April 22 through April 28, 2012.

Please join Patti Violette of Shirley-Eustis House on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Shirley-Eustis House Mansion, 33 Shirley Street, Roxbury. Pam Strand from Collette Vacations will be on hand to talk about these two delightful adventures. As always, refreshments will be served. Don’t miss these exciting opportunities!
