History and Heritage Package


While still a relatively new city, Milton Keynes has a rich heritage, and this package will enable you to explore these historic sites. On arrival by train at Bletchley station, you will be given an induction in an electric car which you’ll have for your entire stay. After driving your electric vehicle to The Cowper and Newton Museum, you can enjoy a tour of the museum.  Here, you can experience the fascinating Georgian domestic life of poet William Cowper and his neighbour, John Newton. The birthplace of Amazing Grace and The Olney Hymns, the Museum transports visitors back in time with its numerous personal artefacts.

From the Museum, you’ll will drive your own leased Electric Vehicle, to De Vere Horwood Hotel, in the Little Horwood on the west side of Milton Keynes. With its distinctive russet bricks, imported from the Netherlands, the mansion house at De Vere Horwood Estate was built in 1911 as a country residence for the Denny family, and has been welcoming guests ever since. A highlight of your stay will be a tour of the Pytheas Gardens:  the estate was the birthplace of famous gardener, Percy Thrower, and your tour will include an insight into his family’s life. Following dinner, bed and breakfast, a tour of Milton Keynes’ top heritage attraction, Bletchley Park, which was once the top-secret home of the World War Two Codebreakers, will conclude the trip on Sunday.
