Day 1 LONDON/AVEBURY/LACOCK/BATH
Start your England travel blog today as we depart the great city of London behind us today we head west. We arrive at the pretty village of Avebury. Here we will be able to wander amidst the largest stone circle in the world and a World Heritage Site. Nearby is also the site of the Cherhill White Horse, which was cut out of the chalk hillside in 1780. Not far from here, set in rural Wiltshire, is Lacock village, famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and its more recent role as a television and film location. The Abbey, located at the heart of the village within its own woodland grounds, is a quirky country house of various architectural styles. We spend some time in the afternoon in Bath, suffused with relics of its Roman past and of course its famous Bath. From here we continue to Cirencester, set in the heart of the Cotswolds, which is so quintessentially English. Cirencester was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times!
We will discover some more of the Cotswold scenery and villages. You will see some outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being so ‘typically English’ where time has stood still for over 300 years. Our visits will include Bibury and Bampton (Downton Abbey Village). Next stop will be Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest town in the Cotswolds and packed with charming traditional houses as many England travel agents will tell you. The quaint village of Woodstock can not be missed to conclude your tour of the area, with a photo stop at Blenheim Palace. In the afternoon we visit Oxford, renowned for over 900 year as a centre of academic excellence. Discover at your own pace the college courtyards, unspoilt narrow alleys and the historic town square. Harry Potter fans might want to see ChristChurch, where many scenes from the films have been shot. The grandeur of the Great Hall has formed the basis of Hogwarts Hall! Later that day we return back to London at approx.7pm.
