England is a wondrous dichotomy. In one sense, it is a country determined to keep its traditions and revere its own millennial history. In another, it is a nation on the cutting edge of art, fashion and all things culturally significant.

From soaring medieval cathedrals to the latest postmodern structures, from prehistoric Stonehenge to Regency Bath, from one-pub Cotswold villages to London's buzzing eateries, your time in Southern England will have you experiencing both sides of this captivating land. In the evenings you’ll relax in well-appointed accommodations that offer all the comforts of home.

Tour dynamic London and visit its most famous attractions such as Big Ben, The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. Set out for the gloriously pretty English countryside and stroll the cobbled streets. You may have a spiritual experience touring mysterious Stonehenge, and a literary experience touring The Waggon and Horses Inn frequented by Charles Dickens. This trip will have you so immersed in all things English, you may start craving bangers and mash and afternoon tea! ... Show More »

Enjoy a private walking tour of Bath - visit the Royal Crescent, the Circus and the Georgian streets of Bath. Stroll along the river, visit the Abbey and learn the history of the Roman Baths.  The Royal Crescent is a residential road of 30 houses, laid out in a crescent and was built starting 1767 and completed 1774.  With its half Colosseum shape, it has been compared to the beautiful Versailles just outside of Paris.  The Circus is an example of Georgian architecture in the city of Bath, completed in 1768. The name comes from the Latin 'circus', which means a ring, oval or circle. Divided into three segments of equal length, the Circus is a circular space surrounded by large townhouses. Each of the curved segments faces one of the three entrances, ensuring that whichever way a visitor enters there is a classical facade straight ahead.

Accommodation: Abbey Hotel (3*)

Situated in a classic Georgian building dating back to 1742, the 3-star Abbey Hotel, enjoys the perfect city center location, with Bath’s historic attractions and famous shopping streets only a short stroll away.

Day 5: Bath

Meet your mini coach at the Best Western Abbey Hotel at 8:30am, 1 minute walk from Bath Abbey. We drive through the beautiful countryside to Stonehenge. This monument has aroused awe and curiosity since the Norman Conquest We stop at the Stonehenge for one hour so you can explore this ancient monument. We travel further along to the Avebury Stone Circles which is a lesser known megalithic monument, and nearly 1000 years older. This monument is a bit more untouched by other tourists, and you are free to take in the magical charm of these stones as you wish. We continue on through Silbury Hill (the largest manmade object in prehistoric Europe); the Cherhill White Horse (nearly 300 years old and among the landscape in this area outside of Bath); Waggon and Horses (traditional thatched inn, frequently visited by Charles Dickens); and finishing up at the Lacock National Trust Village. This wonderful village consists of properties which date from the 13th and 18th centuries. It was once a prosperous woolen town, but now seems like a village trapped in time. We usually make a stop here as there is a wonderful country pub offering good home cooked food and real ale! Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice have filmed scenes here. We return back to Central Bath by 4:30PM.
