£45

LEONARDO DA VINCI EXHIBITION AT THE QUEEN’S GALLERY & THE ROYAL MEWS 27 September £51 Adult | £49 OAP | £35 Child

After free time in Winchester, we visit Bombay Sapphire Distillery.

We’ll go behind the scenes of the unique distillation process and enjoy a drink 'on the house'.

It’s 500 years since the death of one of the world’s greatest artists and scientists. The Royal Collection holds the finest surviving group of Leonardo’s drawings, but as paper is damaged by light, the drawings cannot be on permanent display. After viewing the exhibition there’s free time to explore the Royal Mews.
