Overview

A county steeped in history, there’s much to uncover on this fascinating Somerset tour. From the ancient streets of Bath and Roman settlements, to the meticulously preserved prehistoric stones of Avebury in nearby Wiltshire and Gothic Cathedral of Wells. Not forgetting a boat trip along the River Avon, a trip to the famed musical village of Glastonbury and the home of Cheddar cheese.

This fantastic tour begins in our base of Bath, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in England. Home to the iconic Royal crescent, Roman Baths and striking botanical gardens, it’s a city that perfectly blends Roman and Georgian influences. Bath’s heyday was in the 18th century when it became a fashionable destination, so it’s no surprise author Jane Austen went on to call it her home.
There’s so much history to embrace, as we visit the likes of Glastonbury Abbey and Wells Cathedral, the earliest English Cathedral to be built in the Gothic style. Then of course there’s the 6000-year-old Avebury stone circle and Lacock village, a place seemingly frozen in time. We also enjoy a taste of the local area, with a visit to a family-owned artisan cheesemaker in Cheddar Gorge, as well as a traditional afternoon tea in charming Lacock.
