English Countryside Monuments & Marvels

This tour combines three of the most famous British Highlights: Windsor Castle, the longest occupied palace in Europe, Bath, the home of Jane Austen and the archeological marvel of Stonehenge. Other tours may try to jam more into their Stonehenge, Windsor and Bath experience with extra hop-off-hop-on sites and point-and-look drive-bys, but this tour is designed for truly invested travelers who want just the right amount of time and intimacy in each location. This is the City Wonders difference. This is Stonehenge, Windsor and the Bath like no other tour can deliver. Spend a delightful day away from the hustle and busste of London exploring the magnificent Castle of Windsor, discovering the Georgian town of Bath, and the spectacular prehistoric site of Stonehenge, all in this relaxing trip from London. Meet your group at a central London location and settle comfortably into your seat as the scenic English countryside drifts by, accompanied by your guide’s entertaining introduction to Windsor and its proud royal history. On arrival at Windsor, meander through cobbled lanes bordered by black and white Tudor edifices and peek through traditional blown-glass windows as your guide offers fascinating insight into life alongside the British Royal Family. Having seen the town where the young princes lived, it’s now time to visit the home of their grandmother – Windsor Castle. A treasure trove of royal history, the splendour of this palace will reveal itself to you as you are expertly steered through its rooms by your audio guide. Explore the ornate State Apartments where visiting dignitaries are hosted among artworks by Rembrandt and Rubens. Admire the intricate Gothic architecture of St. George’s Chapel, final resting place of monarchs including King Henry VIII. At the turn of every palatial corridor, another royal jewel lays waiting to be unearthed by you. Your next stop is the splendid city of Bath. Founded by the Romans on the site of a thermal spring, it became a fashionable spa town in ancient times and still is today. Developed mainly in the 18th century, it is an elegant city with beautiful Georgian buildings dotting the landscape. For six years it was home to Jane Austen and two of her famous novels are set there – Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. After a short panoramic coach ride, your guide will lead you on a walking tour, pointing out the major highlights and most beautiful parts of the city. Then enjoy free time to have lunch and explore the town on your own. Continue your journey through the English countryside to your final stop of the day – Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world. This amazing and still somewhat incomprehensible site is believed to have been built anywhere between 3000 and 2000 B.C. The prehistoric stone circle and its surroundings is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and has recently been restored back to its original unaltered landscape. The new visitor center welcomes you a short distance from the monument, and a small shuttle bus takes visitors to the site where you can marvel at the huge monoliths, and ponder about the stories of how they may have been built and what they were used for. Your guide will explain the research and theories behind this amazing site to help you understand one of England’s greatest archaeological mysteries. Visiting Stonehenge is truly an experience not to be forgotten, not to be rushed, and a spectacular way to finish your day in the English countryside, returning to London with enough time to enjoy an evening in the bustling capital.
