» The Magical Mystery Tour - Full Day Tour from Bath

'Capture the Spirit of our Celtic Culture'

Visit the awe - inspiring prehistoric monument of Stonehenge, the most outstanding monument in the British Isles and a World Heritage Site. Hear about the many myths, legends and mysteries of this ancient monument, over 5000 years old, and take time to reflect upon its powerful presence. See the Celtic burial mounds where this ancient civilisation buried their leaders.

Afterwards, we venture into King Arthur's Avalon and explore the mystery, chivalry and romance of King Arthur. Enjoy a leisurely walk up Glastonbury Tor and enjoy breathtaking views from this fabled Isle of Avalon, rich in myth and legend. Imagine how, in distant times where history fades into legend, the Tor was an isolated island surrounded by sea..........

Visit the tranquil Chalice Well Gardens - a timeless and sacred place full of legend, symbolism and atmosphere....... a place whose history has no beginning. Drink from the magical red and white springs.

Explore Glastonbury Abbey, the final resting place of King Arthur and his queen, Guinevere and once a major centre of culture and learning. An earlier legend tells of how Joseph of Arimathea brought the Holy Grail to Glastonbury and built a simple church on the site of this great abbey - possibly the first Christian church in England, "the holiest earth in England".

There's also time to savour the special atmosphere of Glastonbury village with its medieval buildings and unusual shops.

We also visit the City of Wells in Somerset with its historic centre, the magnificent cathedral, and the unique moated Bishop's Palace. Stay a while in one of the many delightful hotels or guesthouses and get your tastebuds tingling at our good independent restaurants

Glastonbury Tou

Wells Cathedral
Mysterious Stonehenge

Wells is a medieval city nestling on the southern side of the Mendip Hills with the mystic Somerset Levels stretching away to the south and west. The history of Wells goes right back to Roman times when we know that there was a settlement, probably because of the springs that bubble up here. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop's Palace.

Wells is the smallest city in England with about 12,000 inhabitants. It can call itself a city because of the famous 13th century Cathedral. It remains remarkably unspoilt and has many other historic buildings including the moated Bishop's Palace, Vicars' Close, St Cuthbert's Church and a good local museum. The Wells Market Place, with lively markets twice a week, the narrow streets and an eclectic mix of building styles all reflect

We also drive through the Warminster Triangle, a mysterious zone renowned for crop circles (click here for more info on crop circles) and UFO sightings. Hear about the many theories explaining these strange phenomena and take a closer look at any crop circle formations en route (seasonal).
