DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We travel to the beautiful Roman city of Bath, home to some of the richest ancient history in Britain and some of the most stunning architecture in Europe. Perhaps stroll along the cobbled high street filled with independent shops and quaint tearooms or explore the original Roman style baths – the only place in the UK where you can bathe in natural hot spa water. After some free time, we continue to our hotel.
Day 2 – This morning we visit the quintessential National Trust village of Lacock. Dating back to the 13th century, this fascinating village was once the centre of the Medieval wool trade. Still beautifully preserved today and cared for by the National Trust, the village is home to many of its original properties dating back from the 13th and 18th centuries. These include ‘The Sign of the Angel’ inn, a 15th century weaver’s house, a 14th century tithe barn complete with dirt floor, a medieval church and the 18th century packhorse bridge. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure back at the hotel.
Day 3 – Following a leisurely morning, this afternoon we take you to Bowood House and Gardens. Set in 100-acres of Capability Brown Grade I parkland, Bowood House is the magnificent family home of the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne. After some time to explore perhaps enjoy a drink in The Treehouse café.
Day 4 – After breakfast we travel to the market town of Marlborough for free time. Head to the High Street, said to be one of the widest in the UK, and lined on both sides with characterful old buildings housing an array of high-quality shops. Here, you will also find The Merchant’s House – one of the finest 17th century middle-class homes in England! This afternoon, we take you to the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge, one of the new wonders of the world and best-known prehistoric monument in Europe.
Day 5 – After an enjoyable stay we return home with comfort stops en route.
