DAY 1

London – Stonehenge – Bath – Cardiff
Experience first-hand what’s “great” about Great Britain on this mesmerising sojourn past the peaks of Wales and the rolling hills and lush farmlands of England to “bonnie” Scotland. We kick-start our adventure in the cosmopolitan capital of London, heading west to Stonehenge’s stone monoliths, whose centuries-old myths have yet to be fully revealed. The elegant Georgian architecture of Bath takes centre stage during our visit to this famous spa town. Here, we’ll see the Abbey and visit the Roman Baths, before crossing the Severn Estuary to Cardiff. Delve into the proud culture and heritage of the Welsh as you embark on an orientation of the city to see the Principality Stadium and Cardiff Castle, in the heart of the city. Tonight, we celebrate the beginning of an epic adventure through Britain at a Welcome Reception.
