For those who enjoy history and love nature, Woodville Palace offers the best of both worlds.Once you have checked in at the hotel , after unwinding you can enjoy tea at the garden restraunt ensconced between bamboo groves , or you can either walk along the photo galleries of the palace that tell many a tale or take a walk in the private forest at the palace and invigorate yourselves in pine scented splendour.
Another option is to relax with a good book in the hammocks or retire into your colonial cocoon.In the evenings a drink at the Hollywood bar is ideal which has original signed photos of the 1930's Hollywood stars..Before you know it, it's time for dinner and you can get an early night's rest for the day's treks.
After breakfast one drives to a local village to experience the lifestyle and living of the people residing in the area. We spend one complete day seeing the activities of the local villagers working in the fields, looking after the Orchards, vegetables, cereals and seeing the simplicity yet tranquil beauty of their daily exercises is an experience in itself .We have lunch at a traditional house and you are a part of this village life for one day.

After breakfast everyone gets together to attend a class to learn pahari cuisine followed by lunch. After breakfast we walk from Woodville onwards and the day is set for a Nature walk near Shimla. This walk will give you into an insight as to why Shimla was the British capital. This is not a regular walk for tourists as is the case with most tourist packages. This is a very carefully thought out itinerary which we have thoroughly researched and customized for our guests at Woodville. You can also discover special handicrafts markets and pick up quaint souveniers once you are done with our walk into the bylanes of Shimla's glorious heritage.
