Do something different on Christmas Day and spend some time exploring England's ancient sites. Starting from the royal residence of Windsor Castle before exploring the mysterious circle of Stonehenge - now a UNESCO heritage site. After a traditional Christmas lunch, end your day by exploring the beautiful Georgian city of Bath.

Highlights

  • Professional, friendly and informative guide
  • Seasonal offer
  • Lunch included

Start your Christmas Day at the Royal Borough of Windor for a guided tour of this majestic city. Here you can see Windsor Castle – built above the River Thames, which has been home to the Royal Family for 900 years.



Continue to Stonehenge. Filled with mystery, the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is a feat of engineering strength and an important prehistoric site. But beyond its archaeological importance and its possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. At first, legend said it was a connection to Merlin and King Arthur, but over the past hundred years midsummer has drawn pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids.

Enjoy a traditional 3-course meal with all the trimmings in a beautiful Wiltshire town, close to the site of Stonehenge.

After lunch you will travel to the beautiful Georgian city of Bath to admire some of the finest architectural landmarks in Europe including Bath Abbey, The Crescents, The Circus, Assembly Rooms and the famous Pulteney Bridge. Discover the Roman baths, built around thermal springs, which have been supplying water for over 2.000 years. In Roman times a large temple was built next to the holy spring – the waters are believed to have healing properties and attracted visitors from across the Roman Empire.



Please note:
All sites are closed on Christmas Day, you will see them from the outside only.
