Thursday

Departing Henley, we visit magnificent Blenheim Palace all dressed for Christmas. On our tour we will experience the grandeur of this home and glimpse some of the history of this magnificent estate. Home to the 12th Duke of Marlborough and his family and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We continue in the afternoon to our hotel for our 3-night stay.

Friday

After breakfast we journey south over the Salisbury Plain and head to Stonehenge - the best known pre-historic monument in Europe. Explore the ancient landscape on foot and step inside the Neolithic Houses to discover the tools and objects of everyday Neolithic life. Visit the world-class exhibition and visitor centre with 250 ancient objects and come face to face with a 5,500-year-old man. In the afternoon we make our way to Stourhead - a truly picturesque scene and a fantastic example of an exquisite English landscape garden. It's definitely the 'most wonderful time of the year' to wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour and dripping with shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles.

Saturday

Today, enjoy a Guided Tour of Bath, discovering the city's distinctive Georgian architecture and its rich history dating back to Roman times. After our tour there is free time- Discover the Roman Baths, the Jane Austen Museum, The Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey or visit one of the many quirky shops & cafes that Bath has to offer.

Sunday

On our return we visit Burford - known as the southern gateway to The Cotswolds. Here you will have time to explore the town including the main street that slopes gently to the River Windrush lined with shops on either side that has not changed much since the 1500s & the Burford Parish Church of St John the Baptist. We continue to Bourton-on-the-Water, a beautiful village known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' due to its stunning waterside views. A gorgeous village with plenty of idyllic photo opportunities and charming restaurants & cafes for lunch or a cream tea before returning home during the late afternoon.
