2018 Late Autumn Coach Trip 

Raymond Blanc's 'Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons'

This second trip to Le Manoir takes place on Wednesday 21st November 2018, and offers guests the chance to see the famous hotel just before the start of the Christmas celebrations. 


As you might expect at the start of winter, there is far less to see in the gardens, so we won't be taking a guided tour around as we do in the summer (there will however be free time for you to see the gardens and take photos - subject to the weather!)


The day begins at Curborough, where you leave your car to join the coach for an 0845 departure. We will take a short comfort stop at services close to the venue, and should arrive at Le Manoir by around 11-11.15am.

The trip takes 2 parts - firstly on arrival the group will split into two, and half of the group will be taken to the Raymond Blanc Cookery School to see a live cooking demonstration hosted by chefs from the hotel's experienced team.


While this happens, the other half of our party will take their seats to see a flower arranging demonstration hosted by the local florist who works closely with the Hotel creating some truly stunning arrangements.


The groups then swap so both parties will see both activities.


We then regroup for a Champagne reception with Canapes

Lunch is served in 'La Belle Epoque' room (pictured right), which we have exclusive use of for the day. This room will hold 5 tables of 10 people, and each guest will have a personalised name card and souvenir menu to take home with them.
