Our 'Medieval Marvels & Movie Locations' experience is rather magical.  It offers visitors to Bath the chance to connect with the local area, experience England's heritage and beauty, away from the crowds, as well as step into some of the most recognizable locations that have been immortalized in film and television including Harry Potter, Downton Abbey  and Pride & Prejudice


We collect guests from their Bath accommodation for a journey into authentic, hidden England to experience the England most visitors imagine, but few encounter.  In a small group of eight guests or fewer, get off the beaten track to be immersed in incredible landscapes, awe-inspiring history,  captivating characters and stories and buildings that have stood the test of time.  Explore tiny hamlets and hidden roads, passing inquisitive sheep, rolling fields and crossing gentle hills and valleys whilst learning about the people, the landscape and its history.   Uncover stunning locations off the tourist routes.  Visit an ancient church, admire tiny English cottages and grand homes and feed the ducks that still occupy the pond that once watered the local working horses in times gone by.  Explore a private 600-year moated manor house on a small guided tour, then wander through it's achingly romantic, quintessentially English, replete with Roses, medieval well and Tudor-framed buildings.  Discover the powerful men and women who shaped these places, of nuns and fraudsters and the ordinary people who made this area their home and shaped the landscape and culture we experience today.  Enjoy a fabulous lunch at a quintessential country pub before finishing the afternoon with tea (and cake?).

 

We don't reveal every detail about our tours as the surprises are part of the magic but this is a tour that includes iconic movie locations...

Discover Lacock, an ancient village and grand house that has been used in numerous productions. Stand in the very spot where Professor Snape first meets Harry in his classroom.  Stand right where Harry beheld the Mirror of Erised.  Retrace the steps of Dumbledore and Harry as they walk through the darkened streets of Bubbleigh Babberton.  For lovers of period dramas, discover the location where Elizabeth first spies Mr Darcy (Colin Firth) as he stares down Wickham.  Recapture the moment when Lady Edith's child is kidnapped in Downton Abbey.or wander down the High Street of the village depicted in Cranford.      Explore Castle Combe,  the Cotswolds village often voted the 'prettiest village in England', and featured in War Horse, Stardust and the 1967 Dr. Doolittle).  Stand in an ancient medieval great hall and explore the house's romantic country garden and ancient chapel.  Stand beside the 500-year-old four-poster bed as your guide shares the story of the house's past with you.   Learn of its use as a film location in Wolf Hall, Poldark, the Other Boleyn Girl and much more.  Enjoy morning coffee, visit an ancient Church and feed the ducks in a medieval English village. 

 

We want our guests to spend their time with immersed in the experience, therefore everything is included in the price... Morning coffee or tea in a unique, atmospheric location. A guided tour of several unique and special locations, told by a master storyteller and guide. A fabulous pre-booked lunch (with a beverage of your choice included), a visit to several charming, English Cotswolds villages, and a tour around two grand houses, including entrance to the gardens of both before finishing with tea in the afternoon before the short hop back to your accommodation in Bath.

We take our guests on unique and in-depth journeys into the 'England' that us locals know and love, but that visitors rarely see.  We don't share the exact itinerary of our tours because the surprises (and the delight they create) are part of the experience. 

We will say that we largely avoid the well-known places most tourists have heard of, to focus on the small, intimate and magical places we know that really tell a story and give guests a real sense of what makes our region special.  This is just one of the many things that make us different!
