On Christmas Day, depart an uncharacteristically tranquil London by air-conditioned coach and journey west to the historical town of Windsor. With the roads free of normal traffic, absorb the unspoiled views of England’s countryside and complete the journey to Windsor in much less time than usual.

On arrival, take a walking tour, including a fascinating stroll around the perimeter of Windsor Castle, the 1,000-year-old fortress still used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Delve into the cobbled streets and pass the house lived in by William Shakespeare when he wrote his play, The Merry Wives of Windsor. Pass Windsor Guildhall, and make your way to the Long Walk in Windsor Great Park to enjoy sweeping views over the castle’s towers.

Next, cross the bridge to view Eton College, the elite school founded in 1440 that was attended by Princes William and Harry. 

Then, after your walk, sit down to a traditional, 2-course English Christmas lunch at a nearby hotel. Savor delicious roast turkey with all the trimmings followed by rich Christmas pudding. If you wish, raise a glass of wine or other alcoholic drink (own expense) to celebrate the occasion.

Back aboard your coach, drive to Stonehenge, the world-famous prehistoric monument set on Salisbury Plain. The site is closed every Christmas Day, so stop to absorb stunning views of the UNESCO-listed stone circle from the plain itself. Hear the mysteries of this 4,500-year-old edifice from your guide, and ponder how the stones were transported here as you snap photos.

Next, continue to Lacock, a 13th-century village that’s one of the prettiest in England. Stretch your legs around the half-timbered cottages, and learn how this quaint place starred in famous movies such as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Lastly, head to the Georgian spa city of Bath, one of England’s architectural showstoppers. Enjoy a coach and short walking tour around the honey-colored buildings, including the Royal Crescent, and then finish your tour in central London in the early evening.
Itinerary

Pass By:  
Stonehenge
The most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and now a world heritage site, Stonehenge stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to be mention public debate ever since.
Pass By:  
Windsor Castle
are waiting for you in Windsor Castle is perched high above the River Thames just outside of London.Over 900 years of royal history from William the Conqueror all the way through to our current Queen, successive monarchs have lived here and left their mark on what is now the largest continuously occupied castle in the world.
Pass By:  
Lacock Abbey
Lacock village is a firm favourite for film and TV producers, most notably for its picturesque streets and historic cottages, untouched by modern alterations. In the past Lacock Abbey has stood in as Hogwarts for two of the Harry Potter films and more recently was used in the filming of Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald in 2017. There's lots to discover in Lacock village; quaint traditional stone cottages, the old workhouse, the medieval tithe barn, the old lock-up and the village church make a visit to Lacock feel like a step back in time.

The tour and tour guide were excellent. They also managed to fulfill my special request related to the food. But I was hoping to stop at stonehenge, unfortunately it was closed during X'mas day. Since no information when we booked the tour, so it was a bit dissapointment.
