What to Expect

British Heritage Tours: our priority is you – it’s time to relax in the safe hands of your local experts.

Tour departure guaranteed with a minimum of 8 guest. 

Hotel: Guest will stay in a central 4 star hotel. Breakfast included daily. Lunch and dinner additional – time is allotted, try the local cuisine!  

Coach: Maximum 40 guest per 50 seater coach – coach size adjusted to number of participants – there will be empty seats for your comfort. Coaches do not offer WiFi on-board – in certain parts of the country, there is little to no coverage and consistency of service as well as doing what we say, is important to us. However, all the included hotels have WiFi available. We carefully plan our itineraries to ensure guests are not travelling on the coach for any more than 3 hours in any one section. Some days will feature more driving than others. 

Tour Directors/Guides: We specifically choose our Tour Directors/Guides for their warmth, knowledge, story-telling and overall love of our country. Their primary concern is to ensure you have an outstanding tour while travelling with us, and to ensure your well-being and safety throughout.

Luggage: Space in the luggage compartments of the coaches is limited, and the maximum authorized luggage is one suitcase of up to 30 kg per person. Foldable wheelchairs (under 10kg) can be stored under the coach. A member of your party must be able to lift the wheelchair in and out of the vehicle without the assistance of the driver, guide or one of our team members. Please advise us if you are bringing a foldable wheelchair. 

Walking: Our itineraries are a well-balanced mix of walking and enjoying sites from the comfort of your coach or other form of transport (for example some of our tours include a stream train ride, lake cruise or river cruise). The amount of walking can vary, so it is important to bring adequate footwear to ensure your well-being and safety. In some locations the ground can be uneven with cobbled stones, spiral steps or other such terrain.

Itinerary

Day 1London - Stonehenge - Salisbury - Bath

Join your Tour Director at Marble Arch and begin your voyage of discovery into historic England. Leaving Our first stop is Stonehenge – a must see symbol of Britain and one of the true wonders of the world. Our tour allows you time to not only visit the Monument but enjoy the world class visitor centre – and its many historic artefacts that give a clue to their ancient past. Take some time to visit the gift shop with its numerous unique items or grab a coffee in the on-site café.

Close by is the medieval city of Salisbury, home to its stunning Cathedral, adorned with its incredible spire. At 123m high it is the tallest in the entire country. On arrival into Salisbury you will be wowed by the sheer size and spectacle of the Cathedral and enjoy a walking tour of the exterior with your Guide before enjoying free time for lunch.

In the late afternoon we visit the stunning setting of Bath and home for the next two nights on your tour. One of the most picturesque parts of the country, Bath has numerous highlights from Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon, the Holburne Museum (a ‘Bridgerton’ filming location) and gorgeous Sydney Gardens.

Check into your 4* hotel located right in the heart of the City and enjoy your evening at leisure – the city’s numerous restaurants have an option for all appetites.

Accommodation: Hampton by Hilton Bath City or similar

Day 2Bath - Full Day

After a delicious breakfast, take a leisurely stroll with your Guide to visit the Roman Baths – before the crowds. Walk in the footsteps of the Romans and explore one of the finest spas of the ancient world. Located below street level you will descend to the site of the Sacred Spring. Naturally hot water of up to 46 degrees Celsius rises here every day, as it has for over 2,000 years. Don’t miss the gilt bronze head of the Goddess Minerva – one of the most important finds of Roman Britain.

Following your departure from the Roman Baths, and free time for lunch, you can choose to join an optional walking tour of Bath with your guide or enjoy Bath independently. Your evening is yours to enjoy at leisure in this wonderful city. (B)

Day 3Bath - Lacock - Windsor - London

The final day of your tour begins with a visit to Lacock village – a location that has inspired many film productions. Enjoy a walking tour with your Guide of some of its highlights including a 14th century Tithe Barn, and an 18th century village lock-up, once used to detain local drunks and people awaiting trial!

Guests can enjoy a full afternoon in Royal Windsor, beginning with free time for lunch. Visit one of the many cafes and restaurants in the quaint cobbled streets, serving everything from cream teas to hot lunches.

We reconvene for the final jewel in the crown – a visit to majestic Windsor Castle. The Castle is the oldest and largest occupied in the world and has been home to 40 Monarchs. Marvel at the Gold, see an original Van Dyck painting, discover life in miniature with Queen Mary’s Dolls House… and much more. Ever wanted to attend a Royal wedding? Within the Castle grounds is St. George’s Chapel, a 500 year old medieval marvel and the setting of numerous Royal weddings. It is also the final resting place for many Kings and Queens, including Henry VIII, Charles I and Queen Elizabeth II.

Your tour concludes on our arrival into London (Marble Arch). We bid you a fond farewell and hope you will return to us on your next trip to the UK. (B)
