Tour Itinerary

Stonehenge

Magnificent Stonehenge

Magnificent Stonehenge

We drive through the beautiful Wiltshire countryside to arrive at Stonehenge as soon as it opens . This ensures the crowds are minimal so you can enjoy your time here. This amazing monument was first mentioned as one of the wonders of Britain only seventy years after the Norman Conquest. It has aroused awe and curiosity ever since. This is your chance to experience it for yourself. During the drive to Stonehenge there is plenty of information for you to browse through as well as an audio presentation. This allows you to make the most of your time here. If English is not your first language, there are audio presentations at the monument in all major languages . There is also an extensive information centre with wonderful displays and a café for refreshments (for details visit our page of useful web addresses).

Avebury

This is a lesser known megalithic monument which is 16 times larger in area than Stonehenge and nearly 1000 years older! The lack of media attention at this site has helped to maintain its magical charm. There are no restrictions to prevent you from wandering freely amongst the stones. This is the ultimate location to try your hand at dowsing and discover for yourself the energy of the stones! The pretty village has grown up in the centre of the stone circles with many thatched cottages and a thatched 17th century pub!

Silbury Hill - Photo Stop

Silbury Hill

Silbury Hill

This is the largest man made object in prehistoric Europe. It was built 4800 years ago and took longer to build than Stonehenge. Its purpose is still one of the great unsolved mysteries although theory and speculation abound!.

Cherhill White Horse – Photo Stop

White horses are a feature of the Wiltshire landscape. Carved out of the chalk hills they appear dramatic against the rich green landscape. Cherhill White Horse is nearly 300 years old. It is one of thirteen original white horses in Wiltshire. (photo credit: www.visitwiltshire.co.uk).

Lacock National Trust Village – Lunch Stop

Lacock

Lacock

This picturesque village consists of properties dating from the 13th and 18th centuries. It was once a prosperous woollen town, but now it seems like a village trapped in time. There has been no major building here in the last 200 years so you really feel as if you're stepping back into a long forgotten era. We usually make this our lunch stop. There’s a pretty café, a bakery and a selection of wonderful country pubs including one that has had a licence since 1362!
If you're interested in film locations Lacock has been used many times. It became the town of Meriton in the BBC production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The Abbey and some of the houses were also used in the filming of the first two Harry Potter movies. The Abbey is not open during winter months. For more details of this National Trust property visit our "other useful sites" web page.

Castle Combe Village

Castle Combe Village

Castle Combe Village

In the southern part of the Cotswolds lies Castle Combe. This idyllic village nestles in a small wooded valley with its meandering stream and weavers’ cottages. The castle has long gone but its stone was used to build the Manor House, now a sumptuous hotel. As well as being the set for the original Dr Dolittle film and Stardust, Stephen Spielberg was there in 2010 filming Warhorse.
