Tour Schedule

Windsor Town and Windsor Castle

Our first stop is Windsor Castle and we have priority entrance to be first in the castle that day to enjoy a relaxed visit without the crowds. Built in the 1100’s the castle is the longest Monarch occupied in Europe, starting with William the Conqueror right through to our current Queen Elizabeth. Found to the South of London in stunning Berkshire, the castle sits on top of a hill with rolling views down to the river Thames.

See the magnificent St. Georges chapel, to this day a favoured royal chapel where recently Prince Harry married and the Queen is a regular attendee for mass on a Sunday. Take in the splendour of the State Apartments, regularly used to this day to host visiting royalty, presidents and for state occasions.

There is also time to see the quaint town with its beautiful Tudor and Stuart Architecture of shops, ancient Inns and Guildhall.

Traditional Lunch at 13th Century, George Inn Cotswolds

Next we head to charming Lacock, a classic village in the Cotswolds that you may find familiar, as unchanged for hundreds of years it is often used for filming of period dramas.

Enjoy a scrumptious, traditional British home cooked lunch in the historic 13th century, George Inn, also featured in a number of period drams and films.

City of Bath

Steeped in history and set on the beautiful river Avon, Bath is world-wide renowned and an iconic World-Heritage Site. It has stunning Georgian architecture and sprawling crescents.

Enjoy a guided panoramic tour of the city before a stop to explore Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge on the river where there are traditional shops to explore and chance to take a traditional afternoon tea overlooking the river.

Stonehenge

The most world-wide recognised monument iconic Stonehenge is next, found on Salisbury Plain in the heart of beautiful rural Wiltshire countryside. The history of the site dates back many thousands of years and the monument as we find it today is between 4,000 and 5,000 years old. Considering its age, it boasts quite amazing and accurate alignments with the sun and moon and is a favoured place of Pagan Worship, in particular at time of the Winter and Summer Solstices. How the builders moved the vast Saracen Stones from the Marlborough Hills about 25 miles away and the smaller Blue Stone from the Preseli Mountains in West Wales, is to this day a marvel.

FAQ’s

Will the tour pick-up from my hotel?

Not unless you are staying at a hotel that is a designated pick-up (you will see options for these before you pay).  This is because of Government actions to help prevent pollution, no tour operators have been allowed to make individual hotel pick-ups since 1st April 2017.

Are there toilets on the coaches?

Some coaches have toilets, some do not, but on all tours there are regular comfort stops of no longer than 2 hours apart, plus all places visited have toilets on site.

Will we have time for a full lunch stop whilst on tour?

Unless you book a tour that includes a specific lunch stop then no.  Most tours are targeted at seeing as much as possible in one day and do not have time for a full stop.  There are options to buy food and snacks at all sites visited, but these can be expensive and most people prefer to bring food and drink with them.  Supermarkets, e.g. Tesco Express offer excellent and great value, pre-prepared food that is ideal for this.  Here is a store finder link.

Will the tour return to for example London at the time stated or can it be late?

Most tours return at the expected time, but this is always subject to traffic and it is possible there could be a delay and so it is always wise to allow plenty of spare time if you are planning on booking theatre shows, trains or flights etc. after your tour.

What clothes should I wear?

It is always wise to check the weather forecast before setting out.  It is good to plan in case of rain, with perhaps a shower coat and umbrella.  There will likely be quite a bit of walking on tours and comfy shoes are a must and if any of the tour is on grass e.g. Stonehenge Inner Circle tours then waterproof shoes are sensible.  It is often colder out of London than in London particularly if windy and a jumper or fleece in summer are wise and a warm coat in winter.

If visiting London how much time will it take to see all the main sites, will we have time for more than one out of London tour if we only have a week? How long in advance should I book tours?

It is a common mistake that people think it may take six days to see London and only allow a day for out of London tours.  However there is so much to see out of London that four days to go out of London will be an amazing experience to see maybe all these locations, Dover, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Windsor, Winchester, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Stratford, Oxford and Warwick.

There are excellent day tours of London that see all of the main attractions in one day and then perhaps allow a further two days to see the Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour and other London attractions not included on the main tours and do not forget to book your show/theatre tickets well in advance too.

These are all very popular tours, most sell out well in advance and it is wise to book your tours, theatre and attractions several months in advance and you will find good planning in advance will optimise your holiday.

Is it better value to tour sites of London and out of London sites on our own, perhaps hiring a car?

No, fixed tours of both London and out of London are much better value than visiting sites individually and you will find going individually entrance costs alone will add up to more than the fixed tours, even before you factor in travel costs.

Do tours pick-up from any of the London airports?

Sorry no tours depart or return from any UK airports.  There are however excellent rapid express trains for example the Heathrow Express.

Can you help me find a discounted best value hotel? Plus theatre/shows and other attractions?

Yes we certainly can and here are some useful links.
