Historical Tours of the UK

The UK has a long and varied history and if you are interested in finding out a little bit more then you should consider taking an historical tour of the country. Whether you intend to take an eco-friendly coach tour or take the self-drive option, there is a tour that will suit you.

Why not consider a tour of the south of England? If you visit the area around Salisbury, one of the oldest cities in England, you also get to visit the prehistoric site of Stonehenge, as well as the stone circle at Avebury. Salisbury Cathedral dates back to the 13th century and it is considered to be a Gothic masterpiece. You could also include a trip to the historic city of Winchester. This is the city where William the Conqueror was crowned king in 1066 and the cathedral is home to an artifact that legend states is King Arthur’s round table.

The city of Bath has long been associated with the Romans and it is still a popular destination today, thanks to the impressive Georgian terraces such as Royal Crescent and ancient attractions such as the Roman Bath House. Bath Abbey dates back to medieval times. You also get the opportunity to relax in the thermal spa waters yourself before enjoying an evening in one of the many fine quality eateries.

Oxford is a city that has long attracted visitors thanks to the ‘dreaming spires’. The skyline of this city features the Radcliffe Camera as well as the impressive college buildings. There are narrow streets and alleys that have changed little over the years and you can always spend a little time wandering around the colleges themselves. Christ Church College is considered to be the grandest and dates back to 1525, while Magdalen College has a deer park.
