Arriving by train from London, our exploration of the Southwest will begin from Salisbury station. Here we will meet our guide and driver. On our way out of town, we will gaze at the Salisbury Cathedral, home of the Magna Carta and an exquisite example of Early English architecture. Impressive even from the car, we will discuss its role in local history as we proceed to Stonehenge, just in time for its opening to the public, in order to beat the crowds and enjoy the view of the stones in tranquility. In the company of our history expert guide, we will engage in the ongoing discussion regarding the origin and significance of the stones, while learning to distinguish historical facts from well-established traditions as we walk in the archaeological park and take in the ethereal magic of the site. 

From here, we'll stop in a local country pub for lunch (at your own expense). We may taste some of the local ales and indulge in traditional dishes such as game pies or a simple ploughman's lunch. After lunch, we'll proceed to the second part of our exploration. 

Once in Bath, we'll stroll through the Georgian streets while learning about the city's Roman origins and its later connections to the dandies and fashionables of London. Our guide will explain the role of the Roman Baths and how they are still today a fundamental fixture of the town. We will visit the site with timed entry tickets to see this impressive ancient site in depth. At the end of our time in Bath, our guide will escort us to the local train station for our return train to London. 

As our day together comes to a close, we will have uncovered what makes Southwest England such a rich destination to visit: lesser-known charms, incredible landscapes, beautiful architecture, and the memorable UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Stonehenge. At the end of the day, we'll return to London on one of the many direct trains that run between the two locations.

This tour was exceptional! Julia went above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable experience. Our train got into Salisbury and she made sure we were able to spend some time there and appreciate the cathedral and some other sites which was a nice bonus. Her explanation of Stonehenge was very thorough but left much to the imagination, as it should be. Bath was amazing and it was really fun to explore the ancient Roman baths as well as to see the quaint town itself. Even the train ride from London into Salisbury was pleasant. A great experience all around!
Georgina was great. Her knowledge is extensive and she related very well to our 2 young girls. We had a great day. Thank you Georgina!
Julia is fantastic—very knowledgeable and she really added to the trip. We would use get again
