Farncombe Estate Weekend Packages
A few days ago I discovered a hotel package that caters to history buffs today's find is for the audiophile. ‘Cylinders to CDs’ is a weekend course at Farncome Estate in England. The weekend package on May 19-21 covers the history of recorded sound from Thomas Edison to the present and into the future. The course includes the history of broadcasting and recording. The weekend includes a trip to Keith Harding’s World of Mechanical Music Museum in Northleach, Gloucestershire. The course is just one of an impressive list of weekend packages that Farncombe Estate offers that include everything from flower arranging and bobbin lace making to whisky and wine tasting and art appreciation . The accommodations aren't overly lavish but the Cotswold countryside is scenic. The weekend and a single room costs £200.
