Day 1: Depart London and travel out through the old kingdom of Wessex to the most famous Neolithic standing stone circle of Stonehenge.
Having explored this mystical place, your tour will continue to the dramatic south Dorset Coast enjoying panoramic views over white sandy beaches and the natural rock arch of Durdle Door. An afternoon here to explore some of the coast before arriving at the historic city of Exeter, which was the most south westerly fortified settlement of the ancient roman empire. You are based here for 2 nights.
Day 2: Your morning is spent exploring the magnificent wilderness of Dartmoor, the ancient "Clapper Bridge" at Postbridge and the historic market town of Tavistock, home to Francis Drake.
Return to Exeter in the early afternoon to explore this Roman town, with its underground passages, ancient walls, Royal Albert Memorial museum and its famous 12th century Norman Cathedral. Your second night is spent here.
Day 3: We are heading to Glastonbury this morning where we will visit Glastonbury Tor. The Tor has been associated with the name Avalon and identified with King Arthur. Climb the Tor for a spectacular view across three counties. In the afternoon we continue to Bath for lunch.
Then there will be time for sightseeing in the town suffused with relics of its Roman past and of course its famous bath. Bath Abbey is also recommended for a visit.
Returning back to London early evening.
