Our day begins in the charming medieval town of Windsor. Your professional guide will walk you through the picturesque cobbled streets up to the magnificent Castle which is perched high on a large chalk buff, high above the River Thames. From William the Conqueror all the way through to our current Queen, successive monarchs have lived here and left their mark on what is now the largest continuously occupied castle in the world. Feel free to enjoy the views of the Castle from the outside, and soak up the atmosphere of Windsor life at your leisure. Alternatively we can organise a fast track ticket into the Castle, so you can see for yourself the splendor of St. Georges chapel and the sumptuous state apartments. Windsor itself is a pretty town full of traditional shops and historic pubs. Shakespeare is said to have written his play The Merry Wives of Windsor in one of them! After our visit to Windsor, we drive through Runnymede, where King John signed the Magna Carta.
The most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and now a world heritage site, Stonehenge stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to be mention public debate ever since. What was this vast collection of stones intended for? Was it observatory of the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery? Who were the people who carried and carved these 40 ton rocks? Come and unlock the secrets for yourself and marvel at this remarkable and mysterious feat of ancient engineering and design. At Stonehenge, you have free time to enjoy the spectacular views of Stonehenge and the surrounding Salisbury plains. Alternatively your guide can help you buy a fast track tickets to walk right to the front of the queue and straight into the Stonehenge site itself - not to be missed!
Bath, another world heritage site, is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents, terraces and architecture. Following our guided tour of the city, there will be plenty of time to visit Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge overlooking the river Avon cascading over the weir. And you can shop, explore and take afternoon tea in the Pump Rooms while listening to the string quartet.
There is plenty do in Bath and you can enjoy some free time if you wish. Alternatively why not enjoy a unique visit of the Roman Baths with our very own Roman legionary exclusive to Premium tours. The tour can be purchased from your guide and is a truly magical end to a wonderful day.
