Overview

Let’s explore the gorgeous region of West of England. However, just a few hours away from London, the region is world away from the big city, full of historic, cultural and natural wonders.

After leaving London, drive towards rural Wiltshire where the chalk uplands of Ancient Wessex holds the enigmatic Stonehenge. Stand close to the stone circle and ponder the purpose of this collection of stones. The guide will share some of the theories and known facts about Stonehenge and its history dating back to 5000 years. It has been calculated that it took three phases of constructions, thirty million hours of labour and the transportation of masses of colossal rocks across mountains and rivers to complete the Stonehenge. Before continuing your journey westwards towards Bath, you will also visit the new visitor centre and exhibition.

People are visiting Bath for centuries to see the warm springs bubbling up at a temperature of 46.5 degree Celsius. Home to author Jane Austen and two of her famous novels – Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, Bath was re-invented in the 18th century.

Finally, take the country roads crisscrossed by dry stonewalls and bustling market towns with magnificent perpendicular churches at The Cotswolds. Head to the medieval village of Lacock with thatched cottages. It has been used as the backdrop for many TV and film productions such as Harry Potter, Cranford, Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey.

Your last stop in this tour will be Avebury, a charming village of cottages nestled in the middle of a huge stone circle. Enjoy a guided walk and some free time at the largest stone circle.
