  • ▪ Check into your 4 star hotel and enjoy your evening at leisure on your first day. The Thistle Marble Arch is located in the heart of the capital and within walking distance of the famous stores of Oxford Street & Regent Street. Around the corner you will find the Wallace Collection, a fascinating exhibition and a great place for a coffee.
  • ▪ 5:30pm: An optional opportunity to meet your British Heritage Tours representative at their desk inside the hotel to help answer any questions you may have about your tour.

  • ▪ Take the opportunity to rest and relax after your journey the day before with a completely free day in London! After a leisurely breakfast your day is your own to enjoy as you wish. Here are some recommendations on great ways to spend your time:

  • ▪ Leaving London behind us we head into historic England. Our first stop is Stonehenge - a must see symbol of Britain and one of the true wonders of the world. Our tour allows you time to not only visit the Monument but enjoy the world class visitor centre - and its many historic artefacts that give a clue to their ancient past.
  • Take some time to visit the gift shop with its numerous unique items or grab a coffee in the on-site café.▪ Close by is the medieval city of Salisbury, home to its stunning Cathedral, adorned with its incredible spire. On arrival into Salisbury you will be wowed by the sheer size and spectacle of the Cathedral. Enjoy a walking tour of the exterior with your Guide before free time for lunch.▪ In the late afternoon we visit the stunning setting of Bath and home for the next two nights on your tour. One of the most picturesque parts of the country, Bath has numerous highlights from Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon, the Holburne Museum (a ‘Bridgerton’ filming location) and gorgeous Sydney Gardens. ▪ Check into your 4* hotel located right in the heart of the City and enjoy your evening at leisure – the city’s numerous restaurants have an option for all appetites.

  • ▪ After a delicious breakfast, take a leisurely stroll with your Guide to visit the Roman Baths – during the quietest time of day, before the crowds. Walk in the footsteps of the Romans and explore one of the finest spas of the ancient world. Located below street level you will descend to the site of the Sacred Spring. Naturally hot water of up to 46 degrees Celsius rises here every day, as it has for over 2,000 years. Don’t miss the gilt bronze head of the Goddess Minerva – one of the most important finds of Roman Britain.▪ Following your departure from the Roman Baths, and free time for lunch, you can choose to join an optional walking tour of Bath with your guide or enjoy Bath independently. Your evening is yours to enjoy at leisure in this wonderful city.

  • ▪ The final day of your tour begins with a visit to Lacock village – a location that has inspired many film productions. Enjoy a walking tour with your Guide of some of its highlights including a 14th century Tithe Barn, and an 18th century village lock-up, once used to detain local drunks and people awaiting trial!▪ Guests can enjoy a full afternoon in Royal Windsor, on this relaxed tour, beginning with free time for lunch. Visit one of the many cafes and restaurants in the quaint cobbled streets – with everything from cream teas to hot lunches there is something for every appetite. ▪ We reconvene for the final jewel in the crown – a visit to majestic Windsor Castle. The Castle is the oldest and largest occupied in the world and has been home to 40 Monarchs. Marvel at the Gold, see an original Van Dyck painting, discover life in miniature with Queen Mary’s Dolls House… and much more. Ever wanted to attend a Royal wedding? Within the Castle grounds is St. George’s Chapel, a 500 year old medieval marvel and the setting of numerous Royal weddings. It is also the final resting place for many Kings and Queens, including Henry VIII, Charles I and Queen Elizabeth II.▪ Your day concludes on arrival back to your hotel with an evening ahead of you at leisure.

  • ▪ Your tour concludes after a delicious breakfast and check-out (11am) at The Thistle Marble Arch hotel. We bid you a fond farewell and hope you will return to us on your next trip to the UK. *On days where there is no Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace we will visit Horse Guards Parade.While there is no evening dining on site at your hotel in Bath, you will be in close proximity to a wide selection of restaurants.
