Itinerary

Day 1London - Cirencester

Your tour heads west to the village of Avebury. Here you have the chance to wander amongst the majesty of the largest stone circle in the world.

A short journey from here is a hillside where you find the Cherhill White Horse, a huge white horse cut into the chalk by the ‘Mad Doctor’ in the 18th century.

Further along the road lies Lacock, a preserved medieval village famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings, and role as a period film and television location.

You then head to Bath to enjoy its rich cultural history and magnificent architecture. You can also take the opportunity to visit the Roman Baths complex and Abbey cathedral.

Heading into the Cotswolds, you travel to the Cirencester*, a market town whose wealth was founded in the medieval wool trade. It was the second largest town in Roman Britain.

*Please note that on some rare occasions, this tour may stay in other locations such as Bath or Cheltenham

Day 2Cirencester - London

You first visit the picturesque village of Bibury, a town that presents you with 16th-century cottages and a tranquil river where trout swim and swans and ducks paddle and feed. It’s quintessential rural England.

Your next stop is Broadway Tower. This unique, Saxon tower sitting atop the crest of a hill has acted as a beacon, an artist’s retreat, and an army bunker.

You proceed to Stow-on-the-Wold, a hill top market town, packed with history, antique shops and tea rooms.

After enjoying the pastoral sights, it’s on to the home of Britain’s best minds: Oxford. This city is renowned for 900 years of academic excellence through its world-famous university.

Keen Harry Potter fans will want to visit the Great Hall of Christ Church College, the inspiration for the Hogwarts dining hall and where some scenes were filmed. (B)

As the evening draws in, you return to London.
