Tour Itinerary
Day 1

We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2

Lacock & Bowood House
After breakfast we head to Lacock to visit this unique National Trust village. Beautifully preserved, it has hardly changed since the 13th century when it was a thriving town trading in wool. In addition to exploring the town itself, we also visit Lacock Abbey, a former abbey which later became the home of the Fox Talbot family, pioneers of modern day photography. In the afternoon we make the short journey to Bowood House and Gardens, home of the Marquis of Lansdowne. Here, we enjoy a 60 minute guided tour of the grand house set within 100 acres of beautifully landscaped parkland.

Day 3

Castle Combe
After breakfast (and time permitting) we can spend the morning in Castle Combe, frequently referred to as the prettiest village in England, before beginning our journey home.
