Depart from Cardiff
Our private tours leave either from our standard departure point at Windsor Place in central Cardiff, or from your hotel in Cardiff and the surrounding areas. Alternative departure points may be available – please enquire for details.
City of Bath
Leaving Cardiff, we drive eastwards and cross the famous Severn Bridge, taking in the ever-changing scenery as we make our journey to the beautiful Georgian city of Bath. In recognition of its beauty and history, Bath is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to some of the finest architecture in Europe. Visit the famous Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey, where the first King of England was crowned in 973 AD. Other iconic attractions include the 2000 year old Roman Baths, which still flows with thermal waters from the original source and the Jane Austen Centre, celebrating Bath’s most famous literary resident. With an abundance of shopping areas, offering independent retail outlets as well as high street brands, elegant Georgian squares and the delightful scenery along the banks of the River Avon, Bath is a unique city.
Lacock Village & Abbey
Our next destination is the village of Lacock, famous for its abbey, picturesque streets, historic buildings and more recently as a film location for productions such as Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey and Harry Potter. It was at Lacock Abbey that William Henry Fox Talbot took the very first photographic negative in 1835 and where the Fox Talbot Museum tells his story as well as hosting a variety of photographic exhibitions. You can even stand on the very spot where history was made, next to the famous latticed window that features in the first ever negative.
Return to Cardiff
We return to your earlier departure point, leaving you free to enjoy the evening as you wish.
