Coach Itinerary

Day 1

After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.

Day 2 – Bristol

We make our way to Bristol, a vibrant city with an iconic suspension bridge that straddles the River Avon. Once a prosperous maritime port, Bristol Harbourside now offers a modern combination of world-class attractions, shops, bars and restaurants while the city’s shopping quarter has a mix of big name brands and independent boutiques. Don’t miss the chance to explore the Old City with its rabbit warren of historic buildings, cobbled streets and secret alleyways.

Day 3 – Bath

We head to beautiful Bath today. The city has remained faithful to its Regency roots, with an abundance of elegant terraces, circuses and squares in a picturesque valley setting. The magnificent Royal Crescent is a must-see and the central square is home not only to Bath Abbey, but also the ancient Roman Baths. There’s also an excellent selection of shops; especially along the Pulteney Bridge, one of only four bridges in the world to feature shops across its full span on both sides. 


 Day 4 – Cheddar Gorge & Cheddar Village

Our half-day excursion takes us on a scenic drive through the magnificent limestone Cheddar Gorge. Classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Britain's largest gorge has dramatic cliffs rising up 450ft and stunning stalactite caverns. We arrive in Cheddar village, known as the origin of Cheddar cheese, which has been produced here since the 12th century. The village offers many tea rooms, gift shops and, of course, the Cheddar Cheese factory.

Day 5

After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
