BOOK THE TOUR:
LACOCK & CASTLE COMBE TOUR OVERVIEW
Explore two famous and beautiful villages near Bath on this private afternoon tour.
The picturesque villages of Lacock and Castle Combe have changed little over the centuries. Their charming appearance has made them popular filming locations e.g. Harry Potter, Downtown Abbey, Dr Doolittle and War Horse have all been filmed in the villages.
Walking around the villages I will show you traditional village features and places used in films and will tell you stories about the villages. Castle Combe is located within the Cotswolds and was once voted the prettiest village in England. I will explain about the Cotswolds and some of its unusual stories including why a sheep appears on its logo!
At the end of the tour I will treat you to the famous English Cream Tea. You haven't experienced England until you have tried one of these!

INSIDER TIP: An English Cream Tea is a pot of tea accompanied by scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. They can be very filling so please bear this in mind for your dinner plans that evening! For guests familiar with cream teas - do not worry - I will not judge you if you put your jam on the scone first!
