day 01 sat London-Avebury-Lacock-Bath-Cirencester

Own arrangement to the departure point, and at 09.15 leaving the great city of London behind us today we head west. We arrive at the pretty village of Avebury. Here we will be able to wander amidst the largest stone circle in the world and a World Heritage Site. Nearby is also the site of the Cherhill White Horse, which was cut out of the chalk hillside in 1780. Not far from here, set in rural Wiltshire, is 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. We spend some time in the afternoon in Bath, suffused with relics of its Roman past and of course it’s famous Bath. From here we continue to Cirencester, set in the heart of the Cotswolds, which is so quintessentially English. Cirencester was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times!

day 02 sun Cirencester-Bourton on the Water-Oxford-London

Today we will discover more of the outstanding Cotswold scenery and villages. You can immerse yourself in the landscapes of river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages and historic market towns, famous for being ‘typically English’. Quite simply, an area where time has stood still for more than 300 years. Our visits will include Bibury a picturesque village with many of the traditional features unique to this area. Next stop will be Bourton on the Water, known as “Venice of the Cotswolds”. We continue onto Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest town in the Cotswolds and packed with charming traditional houses. Later in the afternoon we visit the historic city of Oxford, “the city of dreaming spires”, renowned for over 900 year as a centre of academic excellence. Discover at your own pace the college courtyards, unspoilt narrow alleys and the historic town square. Harry Potter fans might want to see Christ Church, where many scenes from the films have been shot. The grandeur of the Great Hall has formed the basis of Hogwarts Hall! Later that day we return to London arriving at approx. 19.00.

Inclusions: twin share in a 3* hotel, breakfast daily, accommodation with private facilities, mini-coach transportation with maximum capacity of 16 seats, professional Irish driver-guide, local taxes and service charges.
