A package costs from £165 per person including one night’s accommodation at the four star Dolphin House Apartment with continental breakfast, the private tour and workshop with Judith starting at 8.15am, plus tea and scones at her school. Guests stay on the Sunday night ready to be up early for the tour on the Monday morning. Price based on stay on 21 September with tour on 22 September and two share.
