What To Expect
Depart central London in the morning by air-conditioned coach ,and journey southwest to Stonehenge as your guide shares fascinating facts about this prehistoric monument and the mysteries it holds. The Stonehenge site is closed to visitors on Christmas Day, but you can still enjoy splendid views of the giant stone circle from adjacent Salisbury Plain. Stop here to take pictures free from the usual crowds, and listen as your guide reveals more about the monument. Discover some of the theories for how the stones were transported here and why the circle was built. Continue to the nearby historical spa town of Bath. From your coach, admire the elegant Georgian buildings, built from honey-hued local stone, and enjoy a walking tour of the streets, seeing the glorious Royal Crescent and 18th-century Pulteney Bridge. Then, travel on to the Cotswolds, where rolling hills and stone villages make up one of England’s prettiest regions.

Settle inside the cozy inn, and feast on a traditional Christmas Day meal of scrumptious roast turkey and rich Christmas pudding for dessert. Accompany your meal with your choice from the pub’s real ales and fine wines (own expense), and finish with a refreshing cup of tea or coffee. Afterward, make your way back to London. Stop in Stratford-upon-Avon, famous for being the 16th-century birthplace of William Shakespeare, England’s greatest playwright.
