The Cotswold's is an area of England about the size of greater Tokyo. Popular with both the English themselves and visitors from all over the world,the Cotswold's are well-known for gentle hillsides (‘wolds’), sleepy villages and for being so ‘typically English’.

There are famous cities and, well-known beautiful towns like Cheltenham and hundreds of delightful villages such as Burford, Castle Combe and Warwick Castle. Above all, the local honey-coloured limestone, used for everything from the stone floors in the houses to the tiles on the roof, has ensured that the area has a magical uniformity of architecture.

You will see ‘Drystone walls’ everywhere in the fields. Many were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, a matter of considerable skill as there is no cement to hold the walls together. They represent an important historical landscape and a major conservation feature – and are of course still used by farmers to enclose sheep and cattle.

Not all villages are well known, and today many still hold their secrets. Amongst the treasures to be found are perhaps a hidden village off the beaten track, perhaps Painswick, Biddestone, Winchcombe or Woodstock, or an unspoilt historic church, such as at Northleach often called the “Cathedral of the Cotswolds” – open the church door and you will discover a hidden world of history.

Today, the larger market towns and villages of the Cotswolds are famous for their shops, such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Cirencester, Chipping Norton and Tetbury.

  STONEHENGE
No place has generated so much speculation and wild theories as the standing stones of Stonehenge. After driving for miles through the rolling hills and plains of the English countryside the sight of this unusual structure makes people gasp. A walk around it only provokes more strange feelings. There's a sense that this is something very important. It taunts us with its mystery. For over 5000 years it has stood silent vigil over the earth. It has been excavated, x-rayed, measured, and surveyed. Yet despite all that has been learned about its age and construction, its purpose still remains one of the great mysteries of the world.

We can take you from London straight to Stonehenge in one of our luxury fleet vehicles. At certain times it is possible to arrange private visits via English Heritage to get beyond the public enclosure and see Stonehenge up close. Please contact us for details as the dates are very limited.

You can also visit nearby Avebury and walk among the stones. This ancient stone circle is often forgotten in the light of Stonehenge but its sheer size echoes the magnificence of the larger monument. This area crosses on ley lines and is of particular significance to the order of Druids. This can be combined with a tour of ' The Vale of the White Horse' which is steeped in history and local lengends. Among the most famous is the White Horse Hill said to be the scene of St George's slaying of the dragon.


KENT, THE GARDEN OF EDEN
It was in Kent that Julius Caesar landed in 55 BC and uttered the immortal line: "I came, I saw, I conquered".

William The Conqueror and Napoleon passed this way too. And it was in these skies that the critical Battle of Britain was waged. Kent's most outstanding military sites are linked to fortified towns in France and Belgium through the new Historic Fortifications Network - visit their website for more information. The same Kent shores also witnessed the arrival of St Augustine in 597 AD to reclaim England for Christianity. Canterbury, the seat of Christianity, now draws up to 1.5 million visitors to its Cathedral every year.

The famous and the infamous have all left their impression on this fascinating area. Leave no stone unturned as there's a story and a famous name around every corner.

We know all of these places and more... Villages and Hamlets that offer the visitor a chance to witness the rural splendor, experience the rustic tranquility and enjoy the charm that is beautiful Britain.
