What You Can Expect
Your first destination is Wiltshire, a rural county of small villages and scenic landscapes, perfect for a relaxing day in the country. Visit the three stone circles of Avebury, the lesser-known sister of Stonehenge. Stop by the Marlborough White Horse, which is a hill figure, cut in the ground in 1804 by school pupils and the Abbey house, which was once home to the Talbot family. Then head to the village of Lacock, the setting for many TV and film productions, including Pride and Prejudice and the Harry Potter films.
Your guide will then take you to the city of Bath, famous for its Georgian architecture, where you will see the city’s renowned Roman Baths. You'll have enough free time there to explore the town and grab lunch. (at owns expense) Take a deep breath of the hot steam and feel a bit like the Romans felt 2000 years ago.
Your first day ends in Cirencester, a small market town in the heart of the Cotswolds, where you’ll stay the night in your choice of either a 3-star bed and breakfast or 3-star hotel. Your guide will recommend you some local restaurants, where you can enjoy your dinner (at own expense).
After breakfast (included), explore more of the Cotswolds. Visit Bourton-on-the-Water, the so-called ‘Venice of Cotswolds’; Stow-on-the Wold, a small market town; and Woodstock, home to the magnificent Blenheim Palace, which you’ll admire from the outside. (only exterior visit)
Last but not least, make your way to Oxford and discover the charming college courtyards and winding alleys. Harry Potter fans may recognize a few places used in the films!
Head back to London with a new appreciation for the English countryside.
Everything was perfect!
I was the only passenger and they did the tour all the same. Peter was my guide, he is really prepared for his job, we chatted all the journey about history, literature and many other topics. He recommended me what to see in each place and I learnt a lot with his comments.
The towns and villages we visited were stunningly beautiful. I can't say one was better than other, because every place has its own charm.
I would really recommend Rabbies to anyone who wants to enjoy a tour from London. This particular 2 days journey to Bath, the Costwolds and Oxford is worth doing it!
To start with the bus was perfect and just the right number of people (16). Our tour guide was the best we have ever had!!!! She was very was well informed on the areas we traveled to and gave us lots of interesting information. She was like traveling with a friend and was very considerate of our needs. The destinations were interesting and varied. The small hotel we stayed at was perfect, quaint and wonderful food in their restaurant. This tour made us love the English countryside!!! I would take another Rabbies tour anytime!!!
