Cirencester with walking tour and free time.
Often referred to as the Capital of the Cotswolds, Cirencester was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times and in later years it was a very prosperous medieval wool town. Cirencester's market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England). The large south porch with its impressive fan vaulting was built about 1490. Cirencester's market town status was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. The town has its own farmers' market whilst crafts and antiques markets are also regular attractions. Join us on a one hour walking tour to see the city’s highlights.
Built for pleasure and relaxation, beautiful Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa, which houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in. The compact, visitor-friendly centre is overflowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain. Immerse yourself in Bath’s remarkable collection of museums and galleries, and enjoy year-round festivals, theatre, music and sport whilst Bath’s stunning honey-coloured Georgian architecture is straight from a Jane Austen novel.
