Day 4: Bath
Today we explore this splendid Georgian city to learn more about Roman life at the restored Roman
Baths and see the towering 15th century Abbey, the imposing Georgian Royal Crescent and fascinating Pulteney Bridge. We will also visit No.1 Royal Crescent, a magnificent town-house that creates a wonderfully vivid picture of life in 18th century Bath. This afternoon is yours to spend at leisure. Those wishing to relax may choose to spend a few hours at the Thermae Bath Spa, Britain’s original and only natural thermal spa, whilst others may choose to explore the myriad of small independent shops, stylish boutiques and familiar high street stores. Tonight we will enjoy a farewell dinner together. (B, D) Overnight: Francis Hotel (or similar)
Day 5: Bath – Longleat – Avebury – London
From Bath we drive to Longleat, an English stately home, currently the seat of the Marquess of Bath. After a behind the scenes tour of the house, which will incorporate some of Lord Bath’s personal murals, we continue to the village of Avebury to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Standing
Stones, which rival Stonehenge as the largest and most complex prehistoric site in Britain. Whilst Stonehenge attracts tourists fromall around the world and security prevents you from getting anywhere near the stones, at Avebury visitors can walk freely amongst the stones in relative peace and quiet, away from the tourist crowds. Later today we take a leisurely drive back to London where the tour ends. (B)
