Itinerario

Giorno 1

vi porta ad occidente ai cerchi di pietre di Avebury e allo storico villaggio di Lacock nel cuore dello Wiltshire rurale, conservato dal National Trust e praticamente rimasto intatto dal XIII secolo. Nel pomeriggio siete liberi di esplorare Bath, la sua cattedrale e le sue terme romane, prima di allogiare nella capitale del Costwolds, Cirencester per la notte.

Giorno 2

Esploreremo i paesaggi mozzafiato e le bellissime cittadine del Costwolds. Tra queste spiccano Bilbury, Stow-on-the-Wold e Bampton, dove è stata girata la serie TV Downton Abbey. Nel pomeriggio sarete liberi di esplorare l’antica città universitaria di Oxford per poi fare ritorno a Londra.

Itinerary (English)

Day 1

  • Gaze in wonder at the largest stone circle in the world, a powerful testament to prehistoric man’s determination and organisation
  • Explore the village of Lacock and its pretty streets and famous locations, such as its celebrated oddity of an Abbey
  • Soak in the warm tones of the honey-coloured bricks in Bath, a city made famous by the purity of its water and excellent bathhouses in Roman times

Leaving the great city of London, the tour heads west to arrive at the pretty village of Avebury. Wander amongst the majesty of the largest stone circle in the world, a part of a World Heritage Site. A little way from here is the hillside where the Cherhill White Horse lays, a figure of a huge white horse cut into the chalk by the “Mad Doctor” in the 18th century.

Further along the road in rural Wiltshire lies Lacock, a village famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and significant role as a film and television location. The centerpiece is the Abbey in the middle of the village, a unique country house with a renowned mixture of architectural styles.

You then head to Bath, a city of relics and incredible design that is home to a Roman founded spring and bathhouses. Turning to the very heart of the Cotswolds, you proceed to the quintessentially English town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman-occupied Britain.

Day 2

  • Wander between the narrow alleys and neatly arranged 16th century cottages of Bibury
  • Discover what Downton Abbey life might be like in the modern day, as you visit one of its most frequently used village locations
  • Explore one of Harry Potter’s most prominent settings as you wander Oxford, home to some of the most iconic educational institutions in the world

Discovering the quiet wonder of the Cotswold scenery is the main purpose of your day today. Visiting the picturesque village of Bibury is first on your agenda, with its phenomenally maintained 16th century cottages.

You proceed to Stow-on-the-Wold, a market town perched on an 800ft hill and packed with traditional houses. En route to Oxford, we visit Bampton, the village featured prominently in the TV series Downton Abbey.

After enjoying the sights of celebrity, it’s on to the home of the cerebral: Oxford. Renowned for its more than 900 years as a centre of academic excellence and its world famous university, it is also a place of great beauty and fabulous structures. Keen Harry Potter fans will be able to spot many locations when they visit Christ Church, with the grandeur of the Great Hall especially familiar to those who may have always wanted to visit Hogwarts. As the evening draws in, you return to London.

KAYCEE CHENG Posted on 30/08/2016

I really enjoyed the tour! Our tour guide Sarah was super friendly and sweet. She provide us a lot of information about the places where we visited. The view of Cotswolds was amazing! I will definitely join more tours of Rabbies again.

Amazing time!

Mouktika Posted on 09/07/2016

I had an amazing time on this trip thanks to our guides Sarah and John! The sights were great and paced well, I wish it could have been longer.

Wonderful trip

Jasmine F Posted on 19/10/2015

My friend and I enjoyed the tour with Jamie thoroughly. He took good care of all of us and was essential in providing a personal touch to the tour by taking time to speak to each of us and making sure we were comfortable. His funny commentaries gave a touch of humour to the informative talk about the different regions as well.

Fun Times

Great first trip with Rabbies, I was excited to continue to use them when I arrived in Scotland. Glen did a great job despite a few minor hiccups that were out of his control. I had a great time while exploring this area with my best friend.

Amazing experience!

Shrubabati Posted on 10/12/2013

We had booked this tour on 30th Nov 2013. We were pleasantly surprised to find only another couple joining us on the trip. It was like a personalised tour with our very knowledgeable and cordial tour guide, Pete. We loved his anecdotes and the history he shared along the way. The weather was perfect for a day trip and we couldn't ask for more! This was our second tour with Rabbie's - the first one being from Edinburgh to the Scotland Highlands. Both were wonderful and we are hoping we can visit North and South Wales from London sometime soon!

Fantastic tour with the MOST charming and handsome guide -- Kevin٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶ !!!

Shan Posted on 09/09/2013

This is the third Rabbie's tour for me, and it's the second time that Kevin was my guide! How lucky I am! The tour itself is well scheduled, which makes you less tired while visiting many places at the same time. What you cannot miss in such a fabulous tour is a good guide , and that's why you should let Kevin be the one for you! Obviously, after the second tour, we are already good friends right now. He is a charming gentleman and we all love him so much! If you had any trouble with your trip or even your own life, just ask, he would always be there for you~Trust me, you are gonna miss him when you finish your tour~ If you are reading my review, do pick Rabbie's be your choice and do let Kevin be your guide because that is the way you could get an extremely fantastic tour of a lifetime! Love you, Rabbie's! Love you, Kevin!

The tour of all tours!

Beckyrobz Posted on 22/02/2013

How surprised was I when I turned up for my Rabbies tour (recommended to me by my duaghter) to find out I was the only person booked to go. My driver Ambrose told me that it was Rabbies policy to still run the tour even if there was only one participant so off we went!! I had the whole bus, could ask tons of questions, sit up the front and Ambrose and I hit it off immediately. To land in another country on your own is often daunting but not with Ambrose who immediately made me feel at home and was so courteous and knowledgeable. We had a great time touring about and the scenery was breathtaking. The whole time I had my own personal commentary about whatever I needed to know. My B & B experience was also excellent and so much better than I expected. I would definitely book another Rabbies tour and would look for one with Ambrose as he was brilliant!

Great trip had by all!

Lynda Harwood Posted on 12/10/2012

I did the Cotswolds, Bath & Oxford two day tour on 10 October 2012 and just wanted to say what a wonderful tour guide Kevin was - and a safe driver! He catered to every need, very knowledgeable and a great communicator. He is a an asset to Rabbies company. It made for a wonderful trip. Will recommend to all my friends back in Australia.

Thank-you Ambrose for a wonderful tour. I appreciated your knowledge of all the areas we visited. I had enough time in each town to really look around. Oxford was magnificent!

Potrete soggiornare una notte in Cirencester. (** In alcune date rari, alloggio può essere in altri luoghi, come la vasca o Cheltenham).


Come funziona?

Nel tour non è incluso l’alloggio. Questo significa che puoi chiederci di prenotarti un alloggio di buona qualità nelle strutture locali, oppure puoi trovare un alloggio tu stesso.


Voglio che Rabbie’s prenoti il mio alloggio. Cosa succede ora?

Il tuo alloggio sarà riservato e ti accompagneremo fino alla porta. Il pagamento per l’alloggio dovrà essere versato direttamente alla struttura ospitante, quindi assicurati di avere con te contanti, perché non tutti i bed and breakfast accettano carte di credito.
