Description

Make this Christmas one to remember by booking this full-day sightseeing tour from London. On Christmas Day, see the royal town of Windsor, Stonehenge and the Georgian town of Bath without any of their usual crowds. Enjoy a 2-course Christmas lunch at a charming hotel in Windsor, and stop to explore the delightful village of Lacock — the set for several films, including two of the Harry Potter movies.

On Christmas Day, leave London’s uncharacteristically peaceful streets behind and head west by luxury coach to the royal town of Windsor. With little traffic on the roads, you’ll arrive in this delightful town in no time at all, ready to set off on a walking tour.

Walk around the perimeter of much-loved Windsor Castle, and hear tales from your guide about the colorful history of England’s oldest working castle. As you stroll along the town’s cobbled streets, watch out for the house lived in by William Shakespeare — Britain’s legendary Renaissance playwright.

After passing Windsor Guildhall, head to the Long Walk in Windsor Great Park for unforgettable views over to the castle. Then cross the bridge to Eton and see the prestigious college that Princes William and Harry attended.

The day’s much anticipated highlight comes next as you stop for a traditional 2-course Christmas lunch in a nearby hotel. Feast on juicy roast turkey with all the trimmings and Christmas pudding with its deliciously rich and spicy aroma.

Hop back on your coach for a relaxing drive south to Salisbury Plain. Stonehenge itself is closed on Christmas Day, but the neighboring Salisbury Plain is perfectly placed to see the impressive stone circle and take photos without the usual crowds. Step back in time as you learn about the myths and legends surrounding Stonehenge from your guide.

After lunch, continue to the village of Lacock, which dates back to the Saxon era, and take a walk around town to work off your lunch. The picturesque village is dotted with gorgeous half-timbered houses, and has featured in several hit movies, including Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The final stop of your day is the spa town of Bath, known for its Georgian architecture. After a drive around to admire its renowned golden-colored buildings, take a short walking tour, passing the Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge.

Arrive back in central London in the early evening.
