  • Bath: 25-Minute City Boat Trip to Pulteney Bridge

    2. Bath: 25-Minute City Boat Trip to Pulteney Bridge

    Come aboard a short cruise down the River Avon, passing all the best sights and taking some time to relax along the way. On sunny days, the cockpit roof will be open to the sun, and on cooler days, the coal fire will keep the saloon toasty warm. As you glide through the water in an authentic and lovingly-restored 1960's cruiser, your skipper will point out key attractions. Pass the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under the North Parade Bridge. Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at the 19th-century St. John's Church. Marvel at views of Pulteney Bridge, the rushing dam, and the architecture of the city center, including 17th-century Bath Abbey. There, the cruiser will pause to allow time to take in the view. From Pulteney Bridge, you'll then turn and head back downriver. Pass under the Halfpenny Bridge and see the spot wh...

    Short but enjoyable trip up the river to the weir and back. Not expensive and a pleasant way to pass half an hour.

  • From London: Full-Day Tour of the Cotswolds

    3. From London: Full-Day Tour of the Cotswolds

    Travel from London and spend a relaxing day exploring the quintessentially British countryside of the Cotswolds, an area known for its beautiful green landscape, charming villages and honey-colored stone cottages. This small-group tour spends the day exploring some of the highlights of the Cotswolds, as well as some of the quieter, less visited areas of countryside.

Take ample time to stroll along the river, wander over the small bridges and admire the stone cottages. The next stop is Stow-on-the-Wold, a jumble of ancient inns and antique shops located around the market square. Stow has been a center of trade in the Cotswolds for centuries and is k...

  • St Paul's Cathedral Entry Ticket

    4. St Paul's Cathedral Entry Ticket

    Explore St. Paul’s Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece and England's place of national celebration. Today St Paul’s is both a busy working Anglican Cathedral and one of London’s leading sightseeing attractions.

Alternatively, join one of various short introductory talks offered throughout the day for a snippet of additional insight. These guided tours and talks are available on a first come first served basis. Plea...

    I booked St Paul’s for my 6 year old grandson who had studied the Great Fire of London at school and from the moment we stepped into the cathedral, we were both mesmerised. We were greeted with an audio guide which was really easy to use and everything was very covid secure. Although the Whispering Gallery was closed, we decided to climb the 500+ steps to the Golden Gallery which overlooked the entirety of London. He loved it - I loved it and both our legs were shaking from the climb! Probably not a good idea to climb if you are claustrophobic as the stairs can be extremely narrow in places - similarly if you are worried about heights…it’s certainly a way up! Loved every second - and would love to return one day to see the Whispering Gallery.

  • York: City Highlights Walking Tour

    7. York: City Highlights Walking Tour

    Contained within a ring of medieval stone walls, York concentrates 2000 years of history into a remarkably small area. This ninety-minute tour begins at Bootham Bar, the city’s northern entrance, from which every period of York’s development is visible, from Roman times to the present day. You’ll then enter the tranquil, green oasis of the Museum Gardens - a Victorian botanic garden which contains an 18th Century observatory, the remains of a Roman fortress and the spectacular ruins of St Mary’s Abbey. From here it is a short walk to the Minster - the largest medieval gothic cathedral in the country - which has dominated the city’s skyline for over 900 years. The Minster lies at the heart of a warren of ancient streets whose layout is Viking in origin. You’ll hear tales of Viking invasion while delving deep into the maze of secret passages known as ‘Snickelways’; passing an unhappy mer...

  • Bristol: Blackbeard to Banksy Guided Walking Tour

    9. Bristol: Blackbeard to Banksy Guided Walking Tour

    Uncover Bristol's historic downtown area on a two-hour tour with an expert guide. Begin your tour outside Bristol Cathedral on College Green, an imposing medieval church built in the 12th century. As you walk through the downtown core, hear about the origins of the city, where it first started, and its medieval center. You'll then continue on to the Norman castle site, situated strategically between the River Avon and River Frome. See evidence of blitz damage, perpetrated by the Nazis against Bristol during the Second World War.  Throughout, you'll learn about Banksy, Brunel, Blackbeard, and many other of Bristol's famous residents (whose names may or may not start with a B). Hear bizarre echoes and finally finish on Bristol's historic harborside after seeing the smallest, largest, and most beautiful pieces of street art in the city.

    The tour was a really great way to get to know the city better. I went on it with friend because we were starting Uni in Bristol 2 months later and this tour really showed me what a vibrant and beautiful city Bristol was. The tour guide was amazing! He knew everything about the places we visited and made sure to keep us entertained as well along the way. I would fully recommend this tour if you want to learn more about this city or just if you want to see all the beautiful street art and architecture Bristol has to offer.
