These ancient sights are not to be missed!
2000 year old Roman Baths and a 4000 year old mysterious monument - two historic landmarks that are not to be missed!
After an early pickup from the cruise ship pier or your hotel, we will depart to the stoic and mysterious Stonehenge. This prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England consists of a ring of standing stones. These stones weigh around 25 tons each, and are about 13 feet high and 7 feet wide. The stones are in the middle of several hundred burial mounds, and were believed to have been constructed between 3000 and 2000 BC. How Stonehenge was constructed is still a mystery - the type of stone used to build the monument is found 20 miles away.
Once we are done pondering the mystery of Stonehenge, we will head to the City of Bath in southwest England. This city was founded in the 1st century AD by the Romans, who used the natural hot springs as a thermal spa. During the middle ages, it became an important center for the wool industry. Then under the reigns of George I, II and II it developed into an elegant spa city, which was highly regarded in its art and literature.
We will take a scenic drive through the city and along the way we will see the magnificent Royal Crescent, a beautiful example of the unique Georgian architecture that flourished in Bath. We will also see The Circus, Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey during this driving tour. Once we reach the middle of the city, we will stop at the Roman Baths, which are over 2000 years old.
