Example Bath,Windsor & Stonehenge Tour
This is a long, long day. You will need to be leaving your hotel around 08:00 or very shortly after to fit everything in, especially in the winter months
First stop is Windsor, just 20 miles west of Central London. Subject o traffic conditions we will be on the approaches to Windsor about 08:45.
Windsor Castle opens at 09:45, and its a good idea to be one of the first in, especially during the peak months.
Unlike the scheduled coach tours, you will have an hour in Windsor before the castle opens, there are several options.
We travel through Runnymede where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215 by King John. For those very interested there is time to walk over to the monument erected by the American bar association.
The most popular option is a quick visit to Eton, England's famous school where boys are still dressed in traditional black tail coats.
At 09:00 the Queen's Farm Shop opens, on the other side of the castle grounds from the town, few visitors come here. Those that do seem well pleased they did. Perhaps stock up on organic produce from the Queen's farms for snacking later.
Those with small children can feed the Swans by the River Thames.
At 09:45 Windsor Castle opens, home of the Royal Family for 900 years. Visit the magnificent State Apartments, still used for State occasions and Royal receptions.
Take some time to explore the castle grounds and the fourteenth-century St. George's Chapel, one of the most beautiful examples of medieval church architecture in England and a burial place of kings and queens, including Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour.
Most days a Changing of the Guard happens at 11:00.
You receive an audio device with admission to Windsor Castle. Most people take around 90-120 minutes to complete their tour.
We allow a generous time in Windsor, (2.5 hours) much more than the coach tours. After visiting the Castle there is an interesting Old Town to browse, the Guildhall where Prince Charles was married and a wide selection of places to grab a bite to eat.
We leave Windsor at 12:15, for the 75 minute journey to Stonehenge. Along the way the driver/guide will provide a full insight into the Neolithics who built Stonehenge and the many other Neolithic monuments around Stonehenge.
Like at Windsor Castle an audio guide comes with admission to the Stonehenge monument.
Most people take an hour at Stonehenge.
We leave Stonehenge by 14:30, for the one hour journey to Bath. On arriving at Bath we provide a 15 minute orientation tour on the bus, covering the many great attractions to visit in detail later.
|Roman Baths At Bath|
Bath itself is very compact, nearly everything you want to see is within 10 minutes walk of each other. We will drop you off by the Roman Baths, right in the centre at the official coach drop off point.
Bath's attractions are crudely split between the Roman Baths from 2,000 years ago and the Georgian period in the 18th century where much of what you see now was built.
The Roman Baths normally take around an hour for visitors. An audio guide is part of the admission fee. The Pump Room, part of the Roman Baths complex is 'the' place to take afternoon tea.
In the 18th century Bath had a 'season' where if you were anybody this is where you came to network. This is the time of Jane Austin, several of her novels were set in Bath and there is a museum and tea room.
The Georgian architecture built to facilitate this 'polite' society is still very much the attraction now. This is the world of Jane Austen who lived here for a time. There is a Jane Austen museum you can visit and many of the streets in her books you can still follow today
The shopping area is worthwhile. In the very centre are medieval style alleyways and an old indoor market.
Leaving Bath by 17:30, after having spent 2 hours in Bath you should be back at your London hotel about 20:30.
