WINDSOR, BATH AND STONEHENGE
THE ANCIENT MONUMENT OF STONEHENGE - 5,000 years ago these 40-ton rocks were dragged to the lonely windy plain of Salisbury Hill, and their secrets continue to tantalise and intrigue scholars and visitors to this day. Some say that Stonehenge was a religious temple, others that it was an astronomical clock, or a Bronze Age burial ground. Learn more about this iconic monument steeped in mystery and legend, and let your imagination be captivated by its silent, ancient mysteries.
BATH - Standing on the slopes of the River Avon, the honey-coloured Georgian terraces have enchanted visitors and residents alike for centuries. During your panoramic tour of Bath you’ll appreciate why this is – its beautifully proportioned crescents and lovingly cultivated flower beds are a testament to the vision of its 18th century planners, and it’s no surprise that this was the first city in England to be designated a World Heritage Site. Bath owes its existence to the hot spring water that, according to legend, cured the ancient British King Bladud of leprosy. There’ll also be time to explore the ‘lantern of the West’ – Bath Abbey – where the first British King was crowned in 973AD, and see the much photographed Pulteney Bridge, modeled on the Florentine Ponte Vecchio.
BATH ABBEY - Where the first British King was crowned in 973 AD, and see the much photographed Pulteney Bridge, modelled on the Florentine Ponte Vecchio. During the tour we’ll visit the Roman Baths that made the city famous, the best preserved Roman Spa from the ancient world, but then tantalizingly hidden from view until just over 100 years ago.
