Madrid Cultural Tour
11th - 15th March 2018

In conjunction with Chris Pollard’s weekend Course ‘The Story of Madrid’, Christopher Pollard Tours is delighted to offer a four-night study tour: ‘Madrid Adventure’.
For many years we have collaborated with Dillington House to offer clients a 7-day combined Weekend Course and Study Tour to a place of particular interest in Spain. This combination works exceptionally well as clients are able to explore in detail the history and culture of a region or a city first in the classroom and then in the flesh as it were. In 2018 we are featuring Madrid, firstly at Dillington then – travelling from Bristol – in the city itself.
There is a fundamental difference between Pollard Tours and the Dillington Tour; the number in the group is significantly greater – however, it is an attractively priced alternative style of tour. For bookings and further information regarding the Weekend Course, please contact Dillington. The tour is managed by us as a separate entity and should be booked
in the normal way.
The group will depart from Dillington after lunch on Sunday 11th March and drive to Bristol Airport, arriving early evening. We then have four full days in Madrid before taking our return flight on the evening of 15th March.
Accommodation will be in a central 3-star hotel. Our programme will include visits to the three great galleries (the Prado, the Thyssen Collection and the Reina Sofia Museum of Modern Art) the wonderful Lazaro Galdiano (the Spanish Wallace Collection) and the Sorolla House Museum.
We shall explore the extensive Hapsburg District and have a tour of the Opera House. We visit the city’s 21st-century architecture and have dinner in one of Madrid’s new-style Haute Cuisine restaurants.
The tour will be accompanied by Chris Pollard and Wayne Bennett.
