Famous for it’s Roman history and Georgian architecture, Bath has an atmosphere that is unsurpassed. Enjoy a guided tour around this World Heritage city, once home to Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Gainsborough, Lord Nelson and Beau Nash.
See the impressive architecture surrounding Royal Crescent and The Circus, Pultney Bridge and the weir, Bath Abbey and the Assembly Rooms. Hear the history of the city and find out about the characters that have shaped it into the city we see today.
There will be plenty of time to visit the Roman Baths and Museum, the Pump Rooms and even Sally Lunn’s Tea Shop. You can explore the quaint shops and weave you way through the narrow streets. You could even enjoy a picnic beside the rushing waters of the River Avon.
We then drive through the leafy lanes of the south Cotswolds to visit the idyllic village of Castle Combe, voted “the Prettiest Village in England”. You can explore this unspoilt village and see the cottages that make it so famous. There will be time to savour the atmosphere of a bygone age and maybe enjoy either a pint of traditional ale or a cream tea in an old English Inn.
This tour also visits the medieval village of Lacock. The village is owned by the National Trust and has hardly changed in 200 years. There is a magnificent Abbey, half-timbered cottages and greystone houses. The village is often used as a setting for the film industry. In recent years Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”, Moll Flanders and even Harry Potter have been filmed here!
