About this trip

In  November/December 2020,  join fellow poultry enthusiasts for an educational,  cultural, and fun international poultry adventure hosted by McMurray Hatchery.  


Glean new insights and ideas from our creative neighbors across the pond who are incorporating poultry, gardens, and sustainability into their backyards and small homesteads; attend the National Poultry Show of Great Britain; visit unique urban and rural poultry farms; and experience some of England’s cultural, scenic and historic treasures. In addition, McMurray  Hatchery staff will be traveling with the group to offer their own insights and experiences and will act as a resource throughout the tour.  


The tour begins in England’s capital city of London — a cosmopolitan city full of history and grandeur. While in London visit Hen Corner and Mudchute City Farm to discover London-style urban backyard farming and urban flocks.   


Tour activities include a  guided  tour of  London with photo stops at Buckingham  Palace,  the Houses of Parliament, and Trafalgar Square; entrance to the world-renowned Tower of London; and free time for sightseeing on your own.        


The tour then heads north to the Midlands with a  stop en route in Stratford-Upon-Avon,  the birthplace of William Shakespeare, on the way to Telford — home of the British National Poultry Show.


At the National Poultry Show attend educational sessions,  peruse vendor booths, view the 7,000+  chicken, duck, goose, turkey and egg exhibits and socialize with your UK compatriots. 


The final leg of your tour takes you to Oxfordshire.  The City of Oxford is the county’s crowning glory and the dignified home of one of the world’s oldest and most famous universities — Oxford University, and also the home of PBS's Inspector Morse.

   

While in Oxfordshire get a taste for the rural English countryside in the Cotswold Hills and their beloved limestone villages — where you will tour a variety of smallholdings (homesteads), family farms and hatcheries, many of which are entirely free-range.   


The final day of your tour takes you to perhaps the world’s most famous prehistoric monument -Stonehenge. This unique stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period about 2500 BC and is a must-see for any traveler to England.
