  • Her burial place and Choral Evensong in Winchester Cathedral
  • Salisbury Cathedral and awe-inspiring Stonehenge
  • The first weekend of the Jane Austen Festival
  • The Regency Costumed Promenade (costume hire available)
  • Time to enjoy Bath’s many attractions and it’s superb shopping
  • An optional self-indulgent couple of hours at the Thermae Bath Spa
  • A final 2 nights in London
