Day 1 LONDON/AVEBURY/LACOCK/BATH
Leaving the great city of London behind us today we head west. We arrive at the
pretty village of Avebury. Here we will be able to wander amidst the largest
stone circle in the world
and a World Heritage Site. Nearby is also the
site of the Cherhill White Horse
, which was cut out of the chalk
hillside in 1780. Not far from here, set in rural Wiltshire, is Lacock
, famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and its
more recent role as a television and film location. The Abbey, located at the
heart of the village within its own woodland grounds, is a quirky country house
of various architectural styles. We spend some time in the afternoon in Bath,
suffused with relics of its Roman past and of course its famous Bath. From here
we continue to Cirencester, set in the heart of the Cotswolds
, which is
so quintessentially English. Cirencester was the second largest town in Britain
during Roman times!
We will discover some more of the Cotswold scenery and villages. You will see
some outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods,
sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being so
typically English where time has stood still for over 300 years.
Our visits will include Bourton on the Water, also known as the Venice
of the Cotswolds'.
It is a picturesque village with many of the traditional
features unique to this area. Next stop will be Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest
town in the Cotswolds and packed with charming traditional houses. The quaint
village of Woodstock can not be missed to conclude your tour of the area, with
a photo stop at Blenheim Palace
. In the afternoon we visit
, renowned for over 900 year as a centre of academic excellence.
Discover at your own pace the college courtyards, unspoilt narrow alleys and
the historic town square. Harry Potte
r fans might want to see
ChristChurch, where many scenes from the films have been shot. The grandeur of
the Great Hall has formed the basis of Hogwarts Hall! Later that day we return
back to London at approx.7pm. .
