What else is on at City Of Bath Guides?

Travel using some of the back roads out of Bath and arrive in Stonehenge, the prehistoric and grand monument on Salisbury Plain.

After reaching the stones, you'll be given time to wonder and stroll around. Perfect photo opportunity! If you want to hear more about the fascinating landmark that is Stonehenge commentary is also provided.

Whilst you're there, be sure to check out the stone age village and the exhibitions that make up the beauty of the area.

Back to travelling! After Stonehenge you'll be on your way through Pewsey, crossing The Kennet & Avon Canal. Going through this route, you'll see many splendid thatched cottages dotted around as you head towards the Market Town of Malborough.

Known for its famous public school and wonderfully wide main street, you'll stop here for a bit and have the opportunity to take it all in.

Continuing along the old coaching route for London to Bath and passing by the historic Silbury Hill, you'll arrive at Avebury Stone Circles. This landmark is over 1000 years older than the well-known Stonehenge.

Feel free to walk around and touch the ancient monument as you experience the beauty of your surroundings. Once again, commentary and theories will be provided to fulfil your curious mind.

Finally, it is homeward bound as you go past Calne Chippenham and Corsham to arrive back in Bath. Make sure to make use of all the photo opportunities to capture those memories.
