Your Tour Details
Day 1. Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Wiltshire Villages.
Visit Windsor Castle, a working palace. Home to the Queen and the largest and oldest continuously inhabited castle in the world.
Enjoy a private guided tour of the mysterious site of Stonehenge. This ancient temple was built around 5,000 years ago, making it older than the pyramids of Egypt.
Stop off at a real ‘local’s’ pub in a classic English village.
The great advantage of having your own driver-guide is to take scenic routes that are ‘off the beaten track’ and explore England’s country lanes, hamlets and lesser known Wiltshire villages.
Day 2. Stourhead, Old Wardour Castle and the Roman Baths.
Stourhead House is regarded as being one of Europe’s greatest landscaped gardens, featuring grottos, lakes and temples on a grand scale.
Old Wardour Castle is isolated, forgotten and great fun to get lost in! Your guide will explain the fascinating history of this very unusual place.
Tour the ancient Roman Baths. Built over 2,000 years ago, the Romans harnessed the hot local springs and were able to engineer a magnificent complex of plunge pools, steam rooms and saunas. End your visit to Bath with a visit to the impressive abbey.
Day 3. Cotswold and Stratford-upon-Avon.
Take a journey through England’s timeless countryside. Visit the village of Burford and Chipping Campden which are lined with antique shops and tearooms. Stop at the villages of Upper and Lower Slaughter and visit the old mill to pick up a souvenir.
Arrive at the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of the famous poet and playwright, William Shakespeare. Visit Anne Hathaway’s cottage, the marital home of Shakespeare. Stop by Holy Trinity Church which is where the famous writer was baptised and buried.
Day 4. Peak District and Chatsworth House.
The Peak District was the first National Park to be established in Britain and one of the most visited in the world. From upland peaks, covered in peat to rolling lowland hills, the scenery is a patchwork landscape of moors, woods and pastoral valleys.
Chatsworth House is one of Britain’s greatest treasure houses, renowned for the quality of its paintings and sculptures. The gardens features a maze, 200 metre cascade and the Emperor Fountain, one of the tallest gravity-fed fountains in the world.
Overnight: Lake District.
Day 5. The Lakes and Beatrix Potter.
There is more to the Lakes District than its world famous natural environment. There are many towns and villages to explore, whether nestled in valleys or on the side of a lake. Coniston, Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere each have their own story to tell.
Beatrix Potter’s Gallery at Hawkshead contains original artwork of her most famous drawings and watercolours. Also on display are some of Beatrix’s personal possessions. Visit Hill Top Farm, the home of Beatrix, purchased after the success of the Tales of Peter Rabbit.
Overnight: Lake District.
Day 6. Yorkshire Dales, Fountains Abbey and York Minster.
Enjoy the outstanding scenery of deep valleys, rich hay meadows and grassy hills as well as working farms. Known as ‘James Herriot Country’, the park covers 680 square miles and is home to castles and ancient monasteries.
Nestled in a wooded valley stands the awe-inspiring ruins of Fountains Abbey, built in the 12th century by an austere order of Cistercian monks. The Abbey now forms part of an extraordinary 18th century water garden featuring moon-shaped pools, temples and cascades.
In the afternoon, tour York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe and includes a unique collection of medieval stained glass.
Day 7. Lincoln and Cambridge.
Lincoln Cathedral is a Gothic triple-towered building that stands out magnificently above the surrounding countryside. The famous stone carved ‘Lincoln Imp’ sits above the Angel Choir.
The university city of Cambridge is full of different architectural styles; Kings College Chapel was founded by King Henry VI and is one of the most impressive Gothic buildings in England. Archaeological evidence links the city to the Roman and Bronze Age.
