The Roman City of Bath, Castle Combe Village and Windsor Castle

This tour visits Bath, the Cotswolds village of Castle Combe and Windsor Castle. All entrance fees are included.

We visit the beautiful Cotswolds village of Castle Combe, nestled within a wooded valley; this has been voted the prettiest village in England on numerous occasions. Thatched cottages, a lovely village church, 13th century market cross, a rippling stream and haunted bridge complete the perfect look of this picture postcard village. It was also used in the filming of Dr Doolittle.

A short drive then takes us to Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian architecture, beautiful crescents, terraces and squares. Our panoramic tour will give you a comprehensive introduction to the highlights of this World Heritage city and its long history dating back to Celtic times. Visit the Roman Baths and Museum - feel the heat of millions of gallons of naturally hot water that bubble up here every day, see the temple of Minerva goddess of the thermal spring and visit the bath house where people bathed nearly 2000 years ago. There is also time for your own exploration, shopping, lunch and gargoyle spotting !

As we head back towards London we finish the day with a visit to Windsor castle. Home to the |Royal Family for over 900 years from William the Conqueror to Queen Elizabeth II, the castle provides a fascinating insight into the history and life of the royals. See the lavishly decorated State Apartments still used today for State occasions and royal receptions, St Georges Chapel, the burial place of monarchs through the ages and Queen Mary’s Dolls House.

We also drive through Runnymede where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215 and see the John F Kennedy Memorial.
