What You Can Expect

Christmas Eve in Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath

Christmas Eve in Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath

On Christmas Eve morning, depart central London by comfortable coach and journey west to the Royal Borough of Windsor. As you travel, listen as your guide shares information about the region. Hear about the history of Windsor Castle, the world’s oldest occupied castle, and how it is still used by Queen Elizabeth II as an official weekend residence.

On arrival in Windsor, pay a visit to the 1,000-year-old castle. Stroll around the lavish State Apartments and admire St George’s Chapel, the burial place of 10 monarchs, including Henry VIII.

Back aboard your coach, travel on to Stonehenge, the UNESCO-listed prehistoric stone circle on Salisbury Plain. Built some 4,500 years ago, many scholars believe this colossal monument was constructed as a temple aligned to the sun.

The Stonehenge site is closed on Christmas Eve, so stop to admire the vast structure from the road, from where you can enjoy excellent views. Ponder how the stones were transported here and why; take photos; and hear some of the ancient legends that still surround this mysterious masterpiece.

Next, continue by coach to the beautiful spa city of Bath, famous for its cream-stoned Georgian houses and terraces, and Roman Baths, one of the best preserved Roman remains in the world.

Start with a panoramic tour of the key sights. Admire Bath Abbey, the Pulteney Bridge, the Royal Crescent and other landmarks; and then enter the Roman Baths to explore independently. Built on Britain’s only natural hot springs, this incredible complex was built  by the Romans some 2,000 years ago as a place to enjoy the reputedly healing waters. Stroll around the central Great Pool, and explore the archaeological museum and ruins of the terraces and changing rooms.

Lastly, return by coach to central London, where your tour concludes.

Chaos when we arrived for lunch @ about 2+ pm, there were no tables to sit, servers were not helpful. Our tour guide did the best he can to make us feel better, he helped the servers by offering us wine then finding open tables for all of us. He did a marvelous historic announcements, kudos to him.
