Saga Holidays are offering two exceptional value for money, themed short breaks departing June and July 2017.

The three night weekend breaks, offer either all things horticultural with two days at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show or the chance to observe England’s only wild ospreys and other less-glimpsed bird species during a Cambridgeshire stay.

The breaks include three nights half-board accommodation in hotel, and departing in June and July offer guests late availability and with it the chance to take advantage of fantastic prices.

Birdwatching -
Rutland Osprey Encounter from the Park Inn Peterborough – 3 nights from £249pp

Bird lovers can tick one experience off the bucket list, with the chance to catch sight of the incredibly rare and beautiful wild ospreys, in the protected environment of Rutland Water Nature Reserve. 

After extinction in the British Isles in 1916, the Ospreys reappeared in Scotland nearly 40 years later and some of their chicks were resettled in the reserve. Happily, a pair returned from migration and, in 2001, produced the first chick in England for 150 years! Now several pairs have made the Reserve their home.

The break includes a trip to the important reserve with a presentation about the Rutland Osprey Project. Guests also have a guided osprey-spotting cruise aboard the Rutland Belle, visiting areas of the reservoir where you’re most likely to see these magnificent birds and their nesting sites plus there’s an included nature walk around the reserve with expert guide.

GARDENS - Chester and the Tatton Park Flower Show – 3 nights from £289pp

With Summer garden inspiration at its best, guests can spend two full days immersed in the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. 

With 2017 there are some great new highlights at the show including pimped-up sheds showcasing innovative ways to create your own garden hideaway, the Future Spaces zone will imagine the gardens and public areas of tomorrow, a butterfly dome and the recreated city street showing how much more we could be doing with our bus stops!

On this exclusive Chester short break there’s included transfers to and from the show each day and with an included two-day pass guests have plenty of time to make the most of the daily talks and demos, floral displays, artisan foods, numerous stalls and live entertainment.
