Bath is a magnificent world heritage site in the middle of beautiful countryside, 100 miles west of London.   It has stunning Georgian architecture, including the Royal Crescent and the Circus.  Visit the Roman Baths where the hot water springs still bubble just as they did when the spa was built by the Romans two thousand years ago.  Other highlights include Bath Abbey, the Pump Room and the Pulteney Bridge.  Bath is a delightful town to wander about and to explore its shops and restaurants. visitbath.co.uk


This is the birthplace of William Shakespeare, one of the world’s greatest playwrights and poets.  We visit the house where he was born and spent his early years, the houses of his daughter and other members of his family, and his burial place.  You can visit the brand new Royal Shakespeare Theatre opened by the Queen in 2011, standing beside the River Avon. www.stratford-upon-avon.co.uk


This is a city 40 miles north west of London, world famous for its University, the ancient colleges and the dreaming spires.  We can visit some of the colleges and their magnificent gardens whose former students include Bill Clinton, Christopher Wren, J R R Tolkein, C S Lewis and Lewis Carroll.  Other highlights include a walking tour past the Sheldonian Theatre, the Radcliffe Camera and the Bodleian Library. www.oxfordcity.co.uk


This formation of very large stones on Salisbury Plain dates back five thousand years.  The stones are laid out in circles and horseshoe settings.  It is a magical and spiritual place, with many different theories as to how and why it was built.  Stonehenge was designated a world heritage site in 1986 and should not be missed. www.english-heritage.org.uk


A visit to Lacock is like stepping back 200 years into the world of Jane Austen and Cranford.  Lacock is a village about 100 miles west of London, located in the Cotswolds, not far from Bath.  You will wander round this unspoilt village seeing the timber frames houses, the ancient tithe barn and village lock up, the Abbey and the Wool Church, and, of course, stopping off for refreshments at the village pub. www.nationaltrust.org.uk


Experience the history and heritage of the city of Canterbury, a world heritage site in Kent just 60 miles south east of London.  Visit the stunning Canterbury Cathedral, the oldest in England, and the place of pilgrimage for Geoffrey Chaucer and his fellow pilgrims.  Explore the winding streets and lanes of quirky shops and the ancient ruins of St Augustus Abbey and St Martin’s Church. www.canterbury-cathedral.org


Visit this medieval city with its charming historic streets and alleyways.  Known as the city in the countryside, Salisbury is about 85 miles from London, near the edge of the Salisbury Plain.  The city is full of character and has a fine gothic style cathedral with the tallest spire in the country.  For a full day out, combine Salisbury with a trip to Stonehenge. www.salisburycathedral.org.uk
