Overview

Discover the beauty of a vanished world at the standing stones of Avebury, and explore the elegant city of Bath on this history packed journey

When you travel through West England, you feel bewildered. In Avebury, you wonder why Neolithic inhabitants built the largest stone circle in Europe. At Lacock, you question how the stunning abbey has managed to be a nunnery, a brewery, a bakery, and a home. And in Bath, you ponder over what Britain would have been like if the Romans had never visited. So on this tour, we give you time to investigate the secrets and understand the beauty of these famously historic locations.

Your guide lets you wander through the streets of Bath, where Georgian architecture effortlessly blends with ancient Roman artefacts. You travel to Lacock, where the rickety old lanes have been used as a filming location for Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, and Pride and Prejudice. And you venture to Avebury, where the stone monuments have beguiled visitors, historians, and archaeologists for centuries.
So uncover the mystery and history of West England on our tour to Avebury, Lacock, and Bath.

Detailed Itinerary

Our tour takes us west out of London and into the county of Wiltshire to our first stop in the ancient Roman Spa town of Bath. This city has been inhabited for almost 2,000 years and here you’ll have time to explore the city, Abbey and Roman Baths and immerse yourself in the atmosphere and glorious Georgian architecture of this majestic city.
Following lunch we travel deeper into rural Wiltshire to Lacock village, famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and its more recent role as a television and film location. The Abbey, located at the heart of the village within its own woodland grounds, is a quirky country house of various architectural styles.
Our final stop of the day is at the pretty village of Avebury. Here we will be able to wander amidst the largest stone circle in the world – part of a World Heritage Site, a magical place whose stones have stood for over 4,500 years, before returning to London in the early evening.
