Salisbury, Stonehenge & Bath (with free time)

Explore more than 5,000 years of history at Stonehenge as you discover the answers to the questions that everyone is asking about this ancient Neolithic site. Plus, enjoy free time exploring the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, famous for its Roman baths, Jane Austen and stunning architecture. Salisbury Cathedral Our tour begins at this beautiful 13th-century Cathedral, one of the country's most iconic medieval buildings. Built between 1220 and 1258 AD, its massive spire, the largest in the UK at 404ft, towers over the market town below it. Today, visitors can see one of only four surviving copies of the original Magna Carta, as well as the oldest working mechanical clock in Europe built in 1386. Partake in a spot of afternoon tea inside the Refectory tea room positioned directly outside the Cathedral. Peer through the glass roof at Britain's tallest spire as you enjoy your delicious cream tea and confectionery treats. In doing so, it is almost impossible to avoid contemplating the level of skill it must have taken the medieval craftsmen who built it nearly 900 years ago. Stonehenge Our next stop is the pre-historic site at Stonehenge, the world's most famous Neolithic monument. We will spend time here exploring this ancient site and discovering answers to questions that have courted controversy and stirred opinion for hundreds of years. How were the mighty stones erected? Who built it, and why? What is its purpose? These are all questions you will learn the answer to along the way using the exclusive interactive audio guide provided to you. Inside the world-class visitor centre, discover the tools and everyday objects of Neolithic life, plus come face-to-face with a 5,500-year-old man and ancient human remains. Georgian Bath Our final stop is the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, where threads of ancient history meet the modern world. Here, you have ample time to spend exploring a city that has plenty to offer visitors. A simple walk through the city centre reveals just a selection of the stunning architecture that has helped Bath to become a UNESCO World Heritage site. The impressive Circus and Royal Crescent are reminiscent of Regency-era Britain and could be taken straight from the pages of a Jane Austin novel. This should come as little surprise, as Britain's most famous author lived here for five years during the early 19th century. It is believed that Bath inspired two of her six novels; Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. Unwind in one of the city's many parks or beautifully landscaped gardens, or perhaps enjoy a traditional afternoon tea next to the Pulteney Bridge overlooking the River Avon. With so much to see and do, Bath is the perfect place to relax at the end of your trip.
