Accompanied by a local guide, experience the very best of the West Country and seductive southwest England

Begin amid the historic architecture of Bath, where Roman memories mingle with sweeping Georgian crescents. You will also tap into even older times at Stonehenge, before discovering some of the wonders of the often overlooked county of Somerset on a day-long private tour.

Some of the UK’s most evocative locations await on this small-group guided rail tour. Arrive in the classic city of Bath, home to millennia of enthralling history and some of the country’s most elegant architecture. Experience Stonehenge on a private tour and magnificent Salisbury Cathedral, then stay in a stunning castle hotel in the middle of dramatic Dartmoor. Visit the historic ocean city of Plymouth on your way to captivating St Ives, from where you’ll explore some of Cornwall’s most bewitching landmarks, including Land’s End, Mousehole and Minack Theatre.

With a maximum of 15 passengers per group, you can be sure of highly personal service from your knowledgeable, local tour leader on this carefully-designed McKinlay Kidd small-group rail tour. Early booking is strongly advised as places are strictly limited.
