Itinerary

  • Day 1: Wessex, Stonehenge, Jurassic Coast with Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, and Exeter

    Our trail through history goes back to almost the origin of the country, heading through Wessex. An ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdom, the heart of English myths and legends, as well as holding an illustrious space in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, the culture of this place dates back to the Middle Bronze Age. We travel through this gorgeous part of the country and head straight to the iconic and incredibly inspiring Stonehenge. A UNESCO World Heritage and an Ancient Scheduled Monument, this Neolithic site shines with an unmistakable spiritual majesty and stands as a testament to our ancestral legacy.

    From the evidence of one life we move onto another one as we continue on to visit the Jurassic Coast, filled with astonishing geological formations and dotted with hundreds of dinosaur fossils. For the movie buffs, this World Heritage Site is literally as good as The Lost World, only that this is not a theme park but an actual ecosystem lost in time coupled with stunning views of the English Channel coastline. Our journey also includes visits to and sampling seafood at the splendid Lulworth Cove. Durdle Door, a natural limestone arch on the same coast, is up next - a place whose beauty is bound to be etched in your memory.

    Our final stop for the day is the historic cathedral city of Exeter whose origins date back to Roman times. Home to the spectacular Exeter Cathedral, an inimitable specimen of Gothic architecture, it is also the perfect spot to traverse through Norman and Tudor histories as well as stroll along a mesmerising quayside. Besides exploring this lovely city, we will also be staying here for the next two days while we travel around for the next two days.

  • Day 2: Dartmoor, Clapper Bridge, Tavistock and Exeter

    The English countryside is synonymous with moorish landscapes and the second day of our tour treats you to its wild brilliance. We dive straight into the remote wilderness of Dartmoor, dotted with wild ponies grazing in the shadows of enormous granite outcrops. The moors’ isolated beauty is hard to match and the region is filled with an insane biodiversity, making for a surreal experience. After a tryst with the unique charms of the moors, we move on to cross the ancient Clapper Bridge at Postbridge which dates back to the 13th century and was used by miners from the medieval era.

    Our day also takes us to the market town of Tavistock, the birthplace of the legendary explorer Sir Francis Drake. We will get back to Exeter, after this, to explore the city’s array of antiquities - from the archaic city walls to Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery and more.

  • Day 3: Glastonbury and Bath

    The third and final day of our tour takes us to two epochal places - Glastonbury and Bath. Glastonbury, of course, is synonymous with the globally acclaimed Glastonbury Music Festival but trip takes us to one of the cruxes of Celtic Mythology - the Glastonbury Tor. A beautiful beautifull hill offering breathtaking views and capped with the exquisite St. Michael’s Tower which almost stands like gateway to a different dimension, the Tor has a long standing association with the legends of Avalon and King Arthur.

    Post a visit to this mythical place, we will go on to savour some Roman exuberance in the city of Bath. A bucket-list worthy city renowned for the famous Roman Baths, the city is doused in a fabulous blend of Georgian and Roman architectures. Arriving at the city during lunch, we will refresh ourselves at the fantastic array of restaurants, tea rooms and pubs before losing ourselves to touring through the city’s fascinating heritage, the iconic public bathing complex as well as the spellbinding Bath Abbey.
