After breakfast on Saturday morning, we will board our coach and head to Cheddar Village for a full day guided tour. Cheddar is a parish in Somerset known as the origin of Cheddar Cheese, which has been produced here since the 12th century and to this day is still stored in the Cheddar Caves to mature. Afterwards we will have some free time to explore Cheddar on our own and visit the famous Cheddar Gorge & Caves.

Later we will proceed to the city of Wells, where we visit its magnificent cathedral and the grounds of Bishop Palace. Afterwards, there will be some free time for us to explore.

After breakfast we head to Bath where we will have all day to explore this beautiful city at your leisure. Bath is built for pleasure and relaxation, and has been a well-being destination since Roman times. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa, which houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain.

Here, we can visit a remarkable collection of museums and galleries, and sample many places to eat and drink in its visitor-friendly centre. England’s most famous novel writer Jane Austen created two of her most celebrated novels – Northanger Abbey and Persuasion - in Bath.

Useful Information

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

Dress Code
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.
