Your Itinerary

DAY 1 – Arrival in Bath and Roman Baths

This morning, make your way to the Regency city of Bath using your complimentary rail tickets. The direct journey from London takes just 1.5 hours approx. Upon arrival in Bath, after check in at your hotel, the afternoon is free to explore the city at your leisure. Experience Bath’s magnificent Georgian architecture at the Circus, Pulteney Bridge and the Royal Crescent which you may recognise from the Netflix hit “Bridgerton”. Using your included tickets, visit the magnificent Roman Baths which date back over 2000 years. By evening, meet with your tour leader and the rest of the group to dine together at a local restaurant.

Roman Baths

DAY 2 – Avebury stone circle and Lacock Abbey

Today we enjoy a trip to take in the Southern Cotswolds. First stop will be the honey-coloured village of Castle Combe, often regarded as one of the prettiest villages in England. Then we’ll make our way to Avebury to see the intriguing standing stones – lesser known than Stonehenge but equally enchanting, here you get to walk amongst the stones themselves. Final stop will be historic Lacock – seemingly frozen in time, this charming village and its abbey have been used in both TV and film productions such as “Pride and Prejudice”, “Downton Abbey” and “Harry Potter”. Then it’s back to Bath where the evening is yours to dine independently.

DAY 3 – The villages of the Cotswolds

Boarding the mini-coach, we leave Bath behind and dedicate the day to exploring the heart of the Cotswolds. As we journey north we’ll cross patchwork fields, rolling hills and a wealth of quintessential Cotswold villages with eccentric names such as Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold. Each village is unique but characterised by sandstone buildings, thatch cottages, market squares and historic churches; we’ll pause in various spots of particular beauty or interest to soak up the atmosphere. By afternoon we’ll make our way to our base for the next two nights in the heart of a Cotswold market town.

Overnight: Noel Arms Inn (or similar), Chipping Campden, Cotswolds

DAY 4 – Shakespeare’s Stratford and Cotswold Farm Visit

Our journey this morning takes us to the bustling medieval town of Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare. We’ll learn about the life and times of the great bard at Shakespeare’s Birthplace before taking time to stroll along the river banks of this pretty market town. By afternoon we’ll immerse ourselves in rural life with a visit to a working Cotswold farm; here we’ll get to meet the farmer, see some of the animals and even see his sheepdogs at work; a truly unique experience. Later we return to our base in the heart of the Cotswolds where we’ll dine together.

DAY 5 – Blenheim Palace and historic Oxford

After a leisurely breakfast, we’ll head East and visit the elegant country estate at Blenheim Palace. The former childhood home of Sir Winston Churchill, we’ll gain an insight in to his life and achievements as English premier. Our final stop will be in the beautiful university city of Oxford; we’ll enjoy a brief orientation of this medieval town before free time to explore – perhaps take a “punt” on the river, climb Fairfax Tower for spectacular views of the Oxford skyline and “dreaming spires” or wander the historic college quads of one of the world’s most famous educational institutions. After a perfect end to our Cotswolds tour, we’ll return to London where our journey ends.
