Ultimate taste of Bath
Welcome to Bath, a city so beautiful and special that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Independent, creative, unique and stylish, Bath has it all – from England’s most complete Georgian architecture, iconic visitor attractions, great boutique shopping to fabulous festivals and a remarkable range of restaurants, bars and cafés. Come and taste it for yourself!
Welcome to the Royal Crescent hotel
Your chauffeur will meet you at Heathrow Airport or pick you up from your hotel in London and take you to The Royal Crescent hotel in Bath. The hotel offers the sophisticated tranquillity of a luxurious retreat in the city centre, combining the most elegant 18th century architecture with modern attention to detail, outstanding service and a haven of secluded gardens. The afternoon is at your leisure to experience the hotel – enjoy quintessential British afternoon tea (choose from six different selections, including savoury and vegetarian), explore its one acre of stunning gardens or escape to peace and tranquillity of the Spa & Bath House.
Start your day with a personal walking tour with a knowledgeable guide and explore this beautiful city. The Roman Baths, the remains of one of the finest spas of the ancient world, are a must-see attraction. See the ruins of the temple of Minerva, visit the bath house where people bathed and walk where the Romans walked nearly 2,000 years ago. Another must-visit attraction is Sally Lunn’s Historic Eating House, one of Bath’s oldest houses and birthplace of the original Bath Bun. Finish your day with a memorable hot air balloon flight and enjoy spectacular views over the historic city of Bath.
Exploring the surroundings
Today you will have a professional driver at your disposal. Garden lovers will be delighted with Capability Brown’s landscaping of Stourhead with its Paladin Bridge. Why not combine it with a visit to Stonehenge, one of the most mystical sites? Castle Combe has to be one of the most picturesque villages in England; it is the location for the original filming of Dr Doolitle and more recently Steven Spielberg’s War Horse. Lacock village is not far from there and is well worth a visit. Lacock Abbey was used for the internal view of Hogwarts for the Harry Potter films. Another option is the Cotswolds villages endowed with thatched cottages.
Private transfer to Heathrow Airport or back to London.
