After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast we make our way to Bath, one of our most historic and beautiful cities for more shopping and cultural exploration. Rejoin the coach late afternoon for your journey back home, arriving in South Wales during the early evening.
One of our most famous historic cities, take time to discover the history and heritage of Oxford, home to 1,500 listed buildings from every major period of British architectural history from the 11th century onwards. The centre looks like an enchanted fairytale city – making Oxford is a firm favourite of filmmakers from all over the world, from Harry Potter to Inspector Morse along with having inspired countless famous writers over the centuries. Oxford is flat and compact, with many of its major attractions, such as the University of Oxford and its 38 colleges; Bodleian Library, the museums, and Oxford Castle Unlocked right in the centre – perfect to explore on foot. Just a little out of the centre, you can find large green spaces like Christ Church Meadows, University Parks, the riverbanks and Port Meadow.ion, located high up on the Roman Fosse Way and offering fabulous views from its position as the highest of the Cotswolds towns.
Christmas markets are set in the heart of this incredible city and are buzzing with atmosphere. Listen out for the Christmas carols and let the aroma of mulled wine drift through your senses!
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.
One of the UKs best and most beautiful Christmas markets, Bath fully delivers on the festive feel. Get out about and enjoy this wonderful time of the year...
