Your first stop will be the magnificent Windsor Castle, which is perched high above the River Thames just outside of London. From William the Conqueror to the current Queen of England and successive monarchs in-between, Windsor Castle has been home to royals for centuries. Explore the grandeur of St. Georges Chapel and the splendid State Apartments, the traditional shops and historic pubs.
Continue your journey through the English countryside to the next destination of your tour, Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world. This amazing and still somewhat inexplicable site is believed to have been built between 3000 and 2000 BC. The prehistoric stone circle and its surroundings is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and has recently been restored back to its original unaltered landscape.
Next, head to the beautiful village of Lacock, an area that dates back to the 13th century, and is now owned by the National Trust. Visit the charming hamlet and its restaurants, pubs, shops and cobblestone crannies, the village is so well preserved that it feels like you are stepping back in time! These places have been featured in many popular films including Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter. Enjoy the authentic home-cooked meal of fish and chips.
Your final stop is the gorgeous Georgian town of Bath, developed mainly in the 18th century. For six years it was home to author Jane Austen and two of her famous novels – Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, are set here. Your guide will share some interesting information as you visit Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge on the river Avon.
