The most famous prehistoric monument in the world and a World Heritage site dated back to nearly 5,000 years ago. This monument has remained a mystery since its construction thousands of years ago.To this day we are not sure how Stonehenge was built or what it was used for. It could be a temple of the Druids of Celtic religion, a cemetery from the Bronze Age, an observatory of the moon or even an astronomical clock.
We will spend two hours at Stonehenge which will be enough time for you to view this prehistoric monument, have refreshments and also visit the souvenir shop.
After visiting Stonehenge we will be driving through the countryside from the landscape of Salisbury Plains to the City of Bath, a historic city from the Roman and Georgian periods. Here you will be able to see the Roman Baths with their natural hot springs, the Pump House, Abbey and beautiful Pulteney Bridge. Today Bath is a thriving city, and a haven for shoppers, with shops ranging from Antique shops to designer shops. We will be spending one hour and 45 minutes at Bath, which will allow you enough time to see the Roman Baths, pump house and Abbey and take photographs.
After visiting Bath we will travel to Windsor driving through the narrow streets of Bath and through the hills with scenic views of the English farmlands and canal below, then we will meet the highway. This is the longest drive of the trip and will take around one hour and 45 minutes.
Windsor Castle is situated above the River Thames on a hill and has a royal history that dates back over 900 years. Monarchs have continuously made Windsor Castle their home right back to William the Conqueror up to the present day with Queen Elizabeth II.
