Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Castle Combe, Castle Combe, Cotswolds, England

The day begins in Castle Combe, which is surely one of the most photographed villages in all of England. Little has changed here since the 15th century - no street lights or TV aerials. This mediaeval gem is famous for its picturesque cottages and babbling brook. Nestled in a wooded Cotswold valley, Castle Combe has been a favourite Hollywood filming location over the years for movies including War Horse, Stardust and Doctor Dolittle.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Bowood House & Gardens, Bowood House Old Rd, Derry Hill, Chippenham SN11 0LZ England

The tour continues further into the heart of Wiltshire and onto Bowood House & Gardens. This delightful 18th century Georgian country house is famous for its sumptuous Robert Adam interiors and iconic landscaped gardens designed by Lancelot “Capability” Brown. This is your chance to share in the English dream - Bowood is one of England's premier stately homes and has been privately owned by the Lansdowne family since 1754. Enjoy a delicious lunch in either the Stables Restaurant or the Treehouse Cafe.

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: Lacock Abbey & Village, Laycock, Keighley England

Thereafter, your journey continues to the quintessential English village of Lacock, which dates back to the 13th century and where cars are the only sign of modern-day life. Little wonder that it has also been used as a filming location for Downton Abbey, Harry Potter and several BBC productions including Pride and Prejudice. The ancient Abbey boasts a fascinating history and a small museum that celebrates the invention of the photographic negative by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839.
