Bridge, Shakespeare, and the Heritage Railway 

Join us on this unique bridge and heritage rail holiday where we’ll stay at the characteristic Charlecote Pheasant Hotel in a rural hamlet just four miles from Stratford Upon Avon. Directly opposite your hotel is the National Trust Charlecote Manor and Park where deer roam besides the River Avon, and you are surrounded by beautiful countryside and delightful walks. We include a guided excursion to Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Shakespeare’s Birthplace plus, a trip on a heritage steam train from Broadway. 

Our Bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break, and, in addition to playing Bridge, we try to include interesting Bridge seminars, hosted by your Bridge Director. 

Your duplicate Bridge will be available every evening between 7.45pm and 11.15pm and we endeavour to vary these evening sessions, balancing between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week Bridge break. 

Bridge will also be offered some afternoons between 2.30pm and 4.45pm. These sessions are normally given over to open pairs/teams. 

During your Bridge holiday nothing is obligatory, and you can play in as many, or as few, Bridge sessions as you wish. We don’t forget you are on holiday and our Bridge programmes also allow time to relax and the opportunity for you to explore the surrounding area.
