The Tour:
After the morning pick-up we head off to Windsor Castle for a guided walking tour of the old market town taking in the charming cobbled streets and medieval buildings, including the house that William Shakespeare lived in when he wrote the Merry Wives of Windsor. You will also see the warrant for Charles I’s execution signed by Oliver Cromwell, and Sir Christopher Wren’s intriguing Guildhall, before heading to the Long Walk that boasts the most impressive views of Windsor Castle. Your professional guide will pause here explaining to you the dramatic history of the oldest working Castle.
Journeying South-West we pass through Runnymede where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215, before we head to the picturesque Salisbury plains. There will be plenty of time for a photo-stop at Stonehenge, the most famous prehistoric monument in the world. Step back in time 5,000 years while your guide explains the remarkable sequence of events that have surrounded these ancient monoliths.
Christmas lunch is an absolute treat. We visit a charming pub to enjoy Roasted Turkey with all the trimmings followed by delicious Christmas pudding.
Described as the ‘City in the countryside’, the charming market town of Salisbury retains much of its historical past. Your guided walk will take you past timbered buildings and historic houses, many of which retain original features going back to the 13th & 14th Century. There’s something of interest lurking around every street corner, before we take in the stunning Cathedral, home to the finest copy of the Magna Carta and Britain’s tallest church spire. Make sure you look out for the oldest mechanical clock in the UK, dating back to 1386.
Finally we head to the spa town of Bath for a walking and panoramic driving tour of the old Roman and Georgian town, visiting the Royal Crescent, the Circus, and Pultney Bridge , with its fine views of the River Avon cascading down over the weir.
Please note that the Roman Baths, Windsor Castle and Stonehenge will be closed but the tour still provides a comprehensive overview of each attraction and includes a delicious Christmas lunch in a historic English pub. We may visit the above attractions in a different order on the day.
