Wonderful trip, Carol our guide gave just the right amount of information-we really enjoyed it! If I did it again, I would have eliminated the Lacock village portion. The Pub lunch was fun, but we didn’t really have time to see much of the little town. I would therefore preferred more time in Bath, it was magical and so beautiful all decorated for Christmas.

It was my first experience and things worked so great . Would definitely book my next experience from this .

Saw the changing of the guard. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour round the castle. Had a wonderful time.

All you would expect from from this fabulous castle and a lot more..!

wonderful experience - so lovely to see the inside of the castle.
