You’ll explore the bathhouse and accompanying exhibits with your guide. You will then visit the Bath Abbey, a beautiful building which has stood since the early 1600s. From the abbey you’ll walk to the Royal Crescent, one of England’s finest examples of Georgian architecture.

  • Today see some more of London's famous historical attractions. Your expert private guide will greet you at your hotel then accompany you on a brief boat ride on the River Thames which bisects the city, giving you a grand perspective of the city's unique skyline. Arriving at Westminster Abbey, embark on a guided tour of its many memorials and artifacts. In the afternoon visit the Tower of London, the city's most famous castle, to explore the grounds and see the famed Crown Jewels.

Along the way, stop at Scone Palace, one of Scotland's most historic stately homes and was once where the kings of Scotland, including Macbeth and Robert the Bruce, were crowned.
