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.
Bath - This essential English city is as gorgeous as it is historically fascinating.
Roman Baths - Soak up the fascinating facts and beautiful artefacts at one of Britain’s most famous Roman sites.
Bath’s Georgian Architecture - They say the Georgian period produced Britain's best architecture. Look around Bath and decide for yourself.
Lacock Abbey - Some of Harry Potter was filmed in the beautiful cloisters of this ancient abbey.
Avebury Neolithic Standing Stones - No one knows why the druids created this landmark. But we do know it's bigger and older than Stonehenge.
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.

You head west out of London through the county of Wiltshire to our first stop of the day, the ancient Roman Spa town of Bath.
This city has been inhabited for around 2000 years. There’s Roman baths, Georgian architecture, and a gorgeous abbey to see. It’s a fascinating town to explore, so we give you plenty of time to wander around at your own pace.
After lunch we travel deeper into rural Wiltshire to Lacock village, famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings, and role as a television and film location. The Abbey in the heart of the village has its own woodland grounds, and is a quirky country house of fascinating architectural styles.
Our final stop of the day is at the pretty village of Avebury. Here you can wander amidst the largest prehistoric stone circle in the world. You return to London in the early evening.
A wonderful experience with great folks.
Thank you Nick for a great day (and the History Lesson!). Even though it rained most of the day and we were only a small group, a lovely day was had.
