Due to the nature of the tour, lots of the attractions and accommodation we visit require you to navigate steps and stairways.
- This tour is packed with inclusions and visits to Castles, Abbey’s and Stately homes. Their very design often means you are on your feet more than usual and there are often steps and stairways to negotiate.
- In Leeds Castle your wonderful rooms are on the first and second floors and, being a grand castle, there is no lift.
