The morning begins with a private tour of Hampton Court before it opens to the public. An expert State Apartment Warden will give a unique insight to the waking palace taking the group through the tranquil gardens and into the courtyards and cloisters of the magnificent Tudor palace once the favourite residence of Henry VIII. The tour of Hampton Court Palace will include some courtyards and cloisters not accessible to the public during the day as well as the fascinating Tudor Kitchens where Henry’s banquets were prepared.
The most famous prehistoric monument in the world. Stonehenge stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years. Who were the people who carried and carved these 40 ton rocks? Come and unlock the secrets for yourself. Then you will have time to enjoy a picnic style lunch at the new Visitors Centre restaurant.
Finally head for the Georgian city of Bath. Bath is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents, terraces and architecture. Following our scenic drive into the heart of the city and a short walking tour with your guide, there is free time to explore. Perhaps visit the Roman Baths that were built nearly 2,000 years ago, visit Bath Abbey or simply treat yourself to an afternoon tea in one of the many quaint tea houses.
