Description

Join us on a small group, 12-hour tour from London to a Cotswolds Village, Bath and Stonehenge. Travel in luxury aboard one of our top of the range minicoaches, accompanied by one of our expert, friendly and passionate guides for the day and experience the best that England has to offer. We'll visit the 13th century village of Castle Combe in the Cotswolds, the spa city and UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, and of course the world famous, mysterious pre-historic site of Stonehenge. Maximum of 16 guests per tour for a small group experience.

Meet in the morning near the London Eye or Victoria (2 pick up options) and depart from London on a scenic drive through quintessential English countryside, with a quick comfort stop on the way out of London. 

We will take the back roads, and travel through glorious English countryside to the Cotswolds village of Castle Combe, voted by many as the "prettiest village in England", which dates back to the 13th Century and was once a weaving town. Now it's more famous for its olde worlde charm, and has been the setting for many a Hollywood movie (Stardust and War Horse to name a couple). Only accessibly by local country roads, we won't be bumping into any big buses along the way and you'll be free to step back in time and roam among the characterful cottages, and take pictures worthy of any postcard! 

From here, we head to Bath, England's only UNESCO World Heritage City, resplendent in gorgeous Georgian architecture, and with a history stretching back over 3000 years, Bath is a must see destination on any visit to England. We will spend a couple of hours here to soak in the atmosphere and explore many of the city's highlights. On our arrival, we will take a short driving tour to see some of Bath's most beautiful bits, such as The Royal Crescent and the Circus before dropping you off near Bath Abbey and the "Roman Baths" to explore at your leisure and have lunch (at own expense). Perhaps you will find a café to savor a delicious Cornish Pasty or Sally Lunn bun, or try some of the legendary local cider?

You might explore Bath Abbey, a stunning example of Perpendicular Gothic architecture, or visit the beautifully preserved Roman Baths, or take a stroll across Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon, one of only 4 bridges in the world with shops across its full span.

Your guide will offer a complimentary walking tour of the city, focusing mainly on the Roman Baths (although not entering all together). Listen to your guide for the time of the walking tour, and you can decide on the day whether you would like to join or not.

Next stop, the world famous, mysterious and prehistoric stone circle that is Stonehenge. Your driver/guide will provide commentary en route, providing some background history and discuss some of the theories surrounding it. When you arrive, you will have the chance to see the stones, take a walk around them with plenty of time for some fantastic photo opportunities, before visiting the new visitor center, gift shop and cafe. Our visit comes at the end of the day, when the site is generally quieter, and most of the big buses have gone home, giving you a better experience of this awe-inspiring place.

Then, we will make our way back to London, full of some fantastic memories and experiences from a full-day's adventure. Your guide will plan the route back into London based on where everyone is staying and do their best to make your onward journey home as easy as possible.
