Departure from Bath

45 minutes in the picturesque National Trust village of Lacock, with guided walk. Once a prosperous woollen town, Lacock now it seems like a village trapped in time. There has been no major building here in the last 200 years so you really feel as if you're stepping back into English history. It is a favourite film location for Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey.

45 minutes in Castle Combe, once a weaving town at the heart of the Cotswolds wool trade and described as the prettiest village in England – it has featured in films such as War Horse and was the fictional Puddleby-on-the Marsh in Dr. Dolittle, the 1960’s film with Rex Harrison. The village is built around the 14th-century Market Cross with the old water pump beside it.
