Your next stop will be Windsor Castle, a royal residence that embodies almost a thousand years of historical architecture. The original castle was built after the Norman invasion in the tenth century as a strategic part of the River Thames. The castle has been modified over the years and in recent history has been used for state vists. The Castle was the main residence of Queen Elizabeth II in the closing decade of her reign. So it's cucumber sandwiches in the vehicle and off to the main attraction—the megalithic circle at Stonehenge.

You start your tour with a stop off at Eton—home town of the renowned school with the same name. Famous Etonians include Prince William, Boris Johnson, George Orwell and Hugh Laurie.
Before the main event we'll take you to see Woodhenge where you'll see pillars marking the positions of Neolithic wooden posts which have long since rotted away. It's an important World Heritage Site and consists of six concentric ovals of standing posts, surrounded by a bank and ditch.
Stonehenge began as a burial area over 4500 years ago and has changed many times during this period, with stones being added and the site being reformed several times. Part of the changes made to the site were the addition of the bluestones. These stones which were mined in Wales and were dragged to Stonehenge using the limited technologies of the era. This would have taken a large number of people and tremendous organisation.
On site is the fabulous Stonehenge Visitor Centre where you can further explore the mysteries of the ancient stones. Here you'll enjoy world-class exhibitions and multi-media displays. Outside there are reconstructed Neolithic houses—where if you're lucky—you might see ancient crafting demonstrations and bread-making using prehistoric techniques.
Then we take you through the beautiful English countryside to the Roman city of Bath. Here you can wonder at the splendor of the Georgian Royal Crescent consisting of 30 pristine town houses built between 1767 and 1775. Then step back in time a further 1,700 years or so with a visit to the Roman Baths—a well preserved thermae built around the site of a temple when the town was known as Aquae Sulis. Find out more about the baths in the on-site museum. Then after a fun and fact-filled day, it's back to base.
