Combine a weekend in the Cotswolds with a visit to the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, Europe’s largest annual meeting of hot air balloons, attracting over 150 Hot Air Balloons from across the globe. The Fiesta truly is a sight that can only be seen in Bristol. Held over four days in August at Ashton Court Estate where in addition to the fantastic sight of hundred's hot air balloons filling the skies, there are a large number of great trade stands, fairground rides and entertainment.
The Cotswolds - The Cotswolds covers a huge area, almost 800 square miles, and runs through five counties (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire). Here you can explore quintessentially English villages of honey-coloured stone, take in lively market towns, visit some of the country’s greatest palaces, castles and country houses, marvel at the natural world in acclaimed reserves and at some of the most famous arboretas in Britain or take a walk through breath-taking landscapes and historic trails.
Cheddar Gorge - Explore Britain's biggest gorge from the dramatic cliffs rising 450ft to the stunning stalactite caverns. This world-famous site is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, reveals many fascinating stories of our prehistoric ancestors, and is an international centre for caving and rock climbing. Enjoy an open-top double-decker for a dramatic tour of the Gorge. You'll see some of the most spectacular views ever and hear plenty of fun and interesting facts from your guide.
Bath - Nourished by natural hot springs, Bath offers a unique experience with stunning architecture, great shopping and iconic attractions. The Romans took advantage of the area’s natural hot springs by building the majestic Roman Baths, now a UNESCO heritage site. You can experience the mineral-rich waters for yourself at Bath Thermae Spa - don’t miss the spectacular views of the city from the rooftop pool. The city’s elegant Georgian architecture is best appreciated on foot. Take a free walking tour to take in the Royal Crescent (one of Britain's most beautiful streets), the spectacular Bath Abbey and the historic Theatre Royal.
