  • The Tour dElgance will start from Woodcote Park, the country home of the Royal Automobile Club, which was established in 1913 for the Clubs members to enjoy sporting and leisure

    pursuits. In 1915 the Club added a golf course, designed by the renowned William Herbert Fowler, and nearly one hundred years later it now has two excellent 18 hole courses.

    There are also fantastic restaurants, a swimming pool, racquet courts and 22 bedrooms all set in 360 acres of the beautiful Surrey countryside. We are tremendously grateful to the

    Royal Automobile Club for allowing The Tour dElgance at Salon Priv to begin at such an illustrious, and historic, motoring venue.

  • The Old Swan & Minster Mill captures the charm of bygone years. Add to this the personal style characterised by the de Savary family, the 600 year old inn and adjoining mill have been

    given a fresh and sometimes quirky feel with a good measure of modern convenience thrown in. The setting couldnt be more romantic if it tried. At the very heart of the village

    of Old Minster near Minster Lovell and alongside the beautiful and famous River Windrush, our hotel is set in 65 acres of magical gardens, wild-flower meadows and woodland. The inn

    is close to Oxford and 90 minutes from London and Birmingham, the perfect spot to escape the city and explore the Cotswolds.

  • Blenheim Palace Britains greatest palace

    As you enter Blenheim Palace through the Woodstock gate, the beauty of the Palace, the lake and bridge will never fail to impress. This view, according to Lord Randolph

    Churchill, is the finest view in England. Designated as a World Heritage Site, Blenheim Palace offers a unique and truly inspiring venue to host any prestigious fine dining experience.

    One of Englands largest houses, it was built between 1705 and 1722 and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It was designed by the famous architect Sir John

    Vanbrugh in the rare English Baroque style and is surrounded by over 2,000 acres of Capability Brown landscaped Parkland and stunning Formal Gardens which represent a perfect

    example of the English landscape garden movement and style. Famed as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is regarded as Britains Greatest Palace.
