STONEHENGE AND BATH

At 5,000 years old, Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument that still baffles scientists and historians who ponder over the reasons for its construction. See for yourself the huge size of the stones and imagine how difficult it was to build in the days before machinery, especially bearing in mind that many of the stones were dragged thousands of miles across the country. Students will also visit the stunningly beautiful town of Bath, with its gorgeous Roman and Georgian architecture.

WALES WEEKEND

Wales has more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world. Every hill, church or standing stone has a story all of its own. Cardiff, the capital city is the location of many Dr. Who scenes, and the Welsh countryside is home to picturesque abbeys and castles painted by many artists through the centuries.
