First we head straight for Stonehenge the most popular prehistoric monument in the world. Come and marvel at the huge 40 ton Sarsens and the volcanic blue stones that were brought from Preseli mountains over 280 miles away. Discover the mysteries that surround the slaughter stone and see the numerous earth barrows where the beaker people lie buried before heading through the Salisbury plains towards Bath.
BATH AND THE COTSWOLDS
Bath, a world heritage site, is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents, terraces and architecture. There will be plenty of time to shop and explore before we enjoy a drive through the Cotswolds. As we head north to Stratford we drive through the heart of the Cotswolds, taking in breath-taking views of open countryside criss-crossed by dry stone walls and bustling market towns with magnificent perpendicular churches.
The birthplace of William Shakespeare, the greatest writer in the English language and home to the theatres of the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford is a charming market town set in the heart of rural England. A delightful river winds its way through the town, past the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, where Shakespeare lies buried. There are some wonderful half-wooden buildings that date back to Shakespeare's time, including Shakespeare’s Birthplace that we will stop to take photos of.
PRIVATE TOUR OF SHAKESPEARE’S SCHOOLROOM AND GUILDHALL INCLUDING CHAMPAGNE AND STRAWBERRY SCONES
Described as ‘one of the most atmospheric, magical and important buildings in the whole of Britain,’ Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall opened its doors to the public for the first time in 2016 to mark the 400th anniversary of the writers death. Step back in time to the 1570’s when William Shakespeare was a pupil learning to read and write, and see the room where leading theatre companies came to perform – a strong influence on the young playwright. You will be invited to enjoy a unique tour of the school, exclusive to Premium Tours, including the chance to take part in a Tudor lesson, write with a quill and ink, and witness the rare medieval wall paintings and much more. The tour ends with a glass of Champagne and a delicious strawberry scone.
