Day 1 - Arrive at Longleat Club Campsite
Settle into the campsite and meet your tour hosts and fellow members.
Day 2 - Longleat Estate
Your first destination is close to the campsite as you visit the Longleat estate. The estate is home to the Marquess and Marchioness of Bath who live in Longleat House but is also home to an array of wildlife and is the UK’s number one safari park. Enjoy a tour of the historic house and maybe venture into the safari park if it takes your fancy.
Built in the 16th-century during the reign of Elizabeth I, Longleat House is considered one of the best examples of buildings from the era. A guided tour of the house will unveil the history and charm of the Thynne families home, as you explore its stately rooms, paintings and tapestries. You’ll also have the opportunity to wander through the houses’ formal gardens, which date back to the beginning of the 19th-century.
Your entrance ticket also gives you access to the safari park, so you could take your own vehicle through the park to see the amazing species ranging from big cats to elephants and giraffe’s or you have the option to use the estates ‘Safari Bus’, which is available on a first come, first served basis, if you’d prefer to let someone else drive, leaving you free to enjoy the animals.
Day 3 - Free day to enjoy at your leisure
Day 4 - Bath
A full day in Bath awaits you today. The city has a long history thanks to its thermal springs that first drew people to the area and gave the city its name. The Romans cemented the city’s reputation when they built the famous Roman Baths in the centre of the city, enabling them to relax and unwind in the warm waters. Entry to the baths for a self guided tour is included, enabling you to admire the architecture of the baths. Dating back almost 2,000 years it is a testament to the skills of the Romans that we can still walk around the building today.
Once you’re finished in the Roman Baths the rest of the city awaits you, with sights to see including some of the city’s more recent architecture like The Circus, a circular set of townhouses, and the famous Royal Crescent. Closer to the city centre you’ll find historic Pulteney bridge or you might like to enjoy a stroll along the River Avon. Or if you fancy trying out the thermal waters for yourself, you might want to bring your swimming costume and head to the modern Thermae Bath Spa (not included).
