Worcester Cathedral sits in the centre of the city of Worcester over-looking the river Severn. It was founded in 680 but nothing remains of the original building and the oldest part now standing is the crypt which dates to the 10th century. Most of the current building is from the 12th and 13th Centuries.
The cathedral has the tomb of King John who died in 1216 as well as a memorial to Prince Arthur, the elder brother of Henry VIII and first husband of Henry's wife Katherine of Aragon. It is believed that the cathedral was spared the worst of Henry's destruction during the Reformation because of the significance of his brother's memorial.
The cathedral is open all year round and charges no admission fee - although of course donations are encouraged. Tours are available for a small fee. Opening hours are from 7.30 am to 6 pm daily.
Cotswold Motoring Museum
The Cotswold Motoring Museum is managed by the CSMA (Civil Service Motoring Association) a not-for-profit members association. The museum is in the centre of Bourton on the Water, right next to the river that runs through the town. The museum hosts cars, motorcycles, caravans and other vehicles as well as motoring paraphernalia from the history of motorised transport such as picnic sets and portable gramaphones.
There is a gallery filled with cars and other vehicles including 'Brum' the museum's mascot car. There's a blacksmiths workshop to remind visitors about transport in the days before the motorcar and displays of bicycles through the ages. Jack Lake's Garage is a reconstruction of an early village garage and also a 'Guest' car showroom which displays regularly changing exhibitions of motoring icons.
The museum is closed in Winter - from a few days before Christmas through to the February half-term holidays. Admission is £3.60 for adults and £2.50 for children, with reduced cost family tickest also available. Opening hours are from 10am to 6 pm seven days per week.
Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe
The town of Melton Mowbray is famous for pork pies - voted the UK's third most popular regional dish (after Yorkshire Puddings and Cornish Pasties). In 2006 the local butchers fought a successful campaign to prevent the term 'Melton Mowbray Pork Pie' being used by any pie manufacturers outside the Melton Mowbray area - after all, if Champagne can be protected, why not pork pies?
The oldest pie producer in the town is Dickinson and Morris - at their shop pies have been made for over 150 years. Visitors to the town can buy pies and other food in the shop and pork pies start at £1.10 for the small size. The shop also offers pies by post.
Pickford's House is Derby's museum of Georgian Life and Costume. Some rooms in the house are decorated and set out as they might have been in Joseph Pickford's time in the Georgian period and one of the cellars is equipped as an air-raid shelter of the 1940s. There are displays of toys, costumes and textiles on the upper floors. The costume and accessories collection dates from the eighteenth to the twentieth century.
There is parking at the rear of the house. There is disabled access to the ground floor and basement, but not yet to the upper floors. Also there are no toilets on the ground and basement floors. Baby changing facilities are available.
Entry is free of charge. Opening times are:
Monday: 11am - 5pm
Tuesday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm
Sundays & Bank Holidays: 1pm - 4pm
The museum closes over the Christmas hoiliday period.
Rockingham Castle was built 900 years ago for Richard the Conqueror and sits on the top of a ridge of hills giving views of the valley beyond, across five different counties.
Despite its address being listed as Market Harborough (a very attractive market town) it's actually closest to the industrial town of Corby and visitors would do better to follow road signs to Corby rather than Market Harborough
The Watson family who own the castle have lived there for 450 years and only one other family owned the castle before them.
The grounds and castle are open in the summer months - roughly from Easter to the end of September. Between Easter and the end of May they are only open on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays (of which there are two in May). From June to September they are open on Tuesdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays.
Opening hours are 12 noon to 5 pm.
If you can form a group of 20 or more visitors, they will open on additional days by prior appointment - there are links on the website to arrange such visits.
On open days the entry price is £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for Old Aged Pensioners and £4.50 for children up to 16 years of age. Dogs are welcomed in the gardens but not in the castle.
Special events such as Christmas Fayres and Craft Shows are held periodically - check the website for details. The castle is also available for weddings and other private functions.
