Discover rural England
Considered to be one of England's most magnificent gardens, Stourhead is one of the most remarkable landscaped gardens in Europe. The garden is a living work of art, perfect to see at any time of the year. See the dark and mysterious volcanic rock Grotto and come face to face with the river god. The advantage of having a professional driver-guide is to be able to take scenic routes that are off-the-beaten-track, travel at your pace, and be flexible on the day.
Drive through hamlets and maybe stop for a rest at a local pub in a proper English village or enjoy a picnic at Old Wardour Castle.
Next, you will discover a secret castle, lost in time. The romantic ruin of the 14th Old Wardour Castle is enchanting and exploring its passages, spiralling staircases and chambers is one for the curious minded and great fun for children. Time permitting take the old Roman road east and stop briefly at Avebury Stone Circle, the cathedral of all of England's great ancient monuments.
