Tourers’ Dinner: The Barn at Soho Farmhouse

Commencing the experience with appropriate style, Tour Privé will begin with a Tourers’ drinks reception and dinner at world-famous private members’ club and hotel, Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire.

Set amongst a 100-acre site near the village of Great Tew, Soho Farmhouse offers seasonal produce with a modern twist on classic British food. A guaranteed treat for all.

1st Leg: Woodstock to Chippenham

Tourers will be greeted at the Macdonald Bear in Woodstock with a light breakfast before heading up to Blenheim Palace for a quick briefing and navigational talk in the Great Court.

At 09:30, the Tour sets off through the Blenheim Palace North Gates. Tourers will proceed on a stunning route through Blenheim Palace grounds before hitting the open road.

Luncheon: The Orangery at Grittleton House

Upon arrival, Tourers will Parade through the historic market town of Chippenham and up the stunning driveway of the 19th Century Manor, Grittleton House. Here, you will be greeted and guided to the Orangery to enjoy a feast of delicious treats whilst staring out to the beautifully manicured gardens.

Once rested and refuelled, Tourers will depart for the afternoon’s drive, through the countryside and back to the final destination of Tour Privé, Blenheim Palace.

Final Leg: Chippenham to Blenheim Palace

Arriving via a private entrance, Ditchley Gate, Tourers will proceed up towards the ‘Column of Victory’ and over the Vanbrugh Bridge, with the cavalcade finally arriving in the Great Court. Here, cars will park one by one and drivers will be greeted by a well-earnt glass of Champagne.

Once all cars have returned, Tourers will be guided through the East Courtyard and onto the South Lawn for a sumptuous Afternoon Tea in the Chubb Pavilion – the perfect opportunity to unwind and swap stories of the afternoon’s adventure.
