Sample Itinerary :
Friday Day 1 – This morning we travel south to Somerset making a stop in the historic city of *Winchester. Forget the Da Vinci Code (scenes filmed in Winchester Cathedral), the city’s historical mystery is: Who was King Arthur? Tantalising hints are contained in the amazing Round Table, fixed to the wall in the Great Hall which is all that is left of Winchester Castle. Winchester Cathedral (entrance not included) also holds many wonders. There will be free time here during which you can purchase lunch and explore England's ancient capital. From legend and lore to awe-inspiring architecture, Winchester is a treasure trove of English heritage packed with historic buildings, monuments and museums. Departing here this afternoon we continue on to Cricket St Thomas Hotel where having checked in and freshened up, your evening meal is included followed by entertainment. *The stop today will be determined by your departure point.

Saturday Day 2. Today is a leisurely day in the city of Wells, where Saturday is market day. There is so much to see and do here, including the great Gothic Cathedral and the Cathedral Green which is the centrepiece for a complex of buildings and streets which are equally old and fascinating. There is also themoated and walled Bishops’ Palace (entrance payable locally) where there are 14 acres of gardens.  Vicars Close has a fine selection of architecture and the Market Place is linked to the Green by the curiously named Penniless Porch. We return to the hotel where dinner is included followed by this evening’s entertainment - ‘Top Tribute’ featuring The Karpenters and live band, plus a tribute to the music of Abba.

Sunday 3 – Today is a free day to enjoy the on-site Warner facilities and activities.

Monday Day 4–Checking out of the hotel this morning we retrace our steps homewards making a stop in the City of Bath where you will have some free time to explore this unique city with its hot springs, Roman Baths, splendid Abbey and where its Georgian stone crescents have attracted visitors for centuries. Don’t miss the Royal Crescent and the Circus, Queen Square, Abbey Churchyard, Abbey Green or the Cross Bath tucked away down Bath Street. You may choose to visit the famous Roman Baths which were built around Britain's only hot springs. This great temple and bathing complex still flows with natural hot water. The extensive remains and a Roman museum of international significance lie beneath the Pump Room and Abbey Church Yard in the centre of Bath. (Entrances today are not included). Departing here, we continue our journey returning you to your original departure point(s) later today.
