The tour starts in the village of Avebury with the possibility to explore the wonders of the largest stone circle in the world. Travelling onwards we will find the monumental Cherhill White Horse carved out of the chalky hillside by a ‘Mad Doctor’ in the 18th century. Our next stop is the medieval village of Lacock and a chance to explore the historic buildings and charming narrow streets. A popular location for both film and TV productions, Lacock has played host to the cast from Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall and many more. The afternoon takes us to the Georgian city of Bath with an opportunity to visit the 11th century Abbey with its Norman architecture or perhaps discover the history of the remarkably well preserved Roman Baths. Later we travel to the medieval market town of Cirencester, where we will spend the evening.
After breakfast, we will be exploring the Cotswolds, starting in the medieval village of Bibury on the banks of the River Coln. Take a gentle stroll through this quintessentially rural English setting. Onwards and upwards we go to the top of the hill and the market town of Stow-on-the-Wold to discover its charming array of antique shops and traditional tea rooms. A quick visit to Bampton follows, with a chance to see where Downton Abbey was filmed in this very English location. Afterwards we journey to the university city of Oxford, a city renowned as a historic seat of learning for over 800 years. There will be some time for you to explore the stunning university colleges. Perhaps take a peek at the Great Hall of Christ Church College, a must for film buffs. Finally our journey takes us back to London.
