We start the day at Warwick where there is old and the new, from gift shops, antique centres and traditional tea rooms to fashion shops, art galleries and fine restaurants. Market Place is the heart of the town, hosting a variety of cafes, pubs and shops and a thriving market every Saturday. Swan Street is always a hive of activity and the town’s busiest shopping street, Smith Street is the oldest shopping street in Warwick and boasts a unique mix of independent shops and restaurants. Museums include Lord Leycester's Hospital, St John's House, Hill Close Gardens and The Court House.

After lunch we proceed to Baddesley Clinton (National Trust) located just north of  Warwick. Baddesley Clinton ia a remarkable survival of a medieval moated manor house and was home of the Ferrers family for 500 years. At one time an artists' retreat, at another a haven for the persecuted, the house nevertheless passed from father to son for 12 generations before finally being sold in 1940. The Gatehouse entrance makes Baddesley one of the most visually pleasing architectural ensembles in England, with its combination of bridge, moat and crenelated gatehouse and with its stonework and windows of several different periods.
Once you’ve passed through the gatehouse you’ll enter the courtyard, with its yews, lawns and brick paths. It was created in 1889 by Edward Heneage Derring and has changed little since. The main charge of the Ferrers arms (seven mascles, or lozenges) is laid out on the lawn and is planted in its gold and red heraldic colours. The Great Hall was constructed in the 1570s and is dominated by a magnificent stone chimneypiece, which was originally elsewhere in the house. From here you can visit all the other rooms such as the drawing room, the chapel, library, Henry Ferrers’ bedroom and more.
