For six memorable days (November 10-16) we’ll thrill to the sound of outstanding concerts featuring superb classical music performed by some of the greatest international talents. The extra-ordinary locations will be as exciting as the music: the evocative Assembly Rooms, where we can’t help imagining Jane Austen’s heroines waltzing to the very melodies to which we listen, majestic Bath Abbey, the site of coronations of centuries past, and the elegant Guildhall, a superb example of the Adam–inspired design of the 1700’s.

We’ll enjoy the best of both traditional and inventive contemporary cuisine, from a quintessential fireside tea in the countryside, to creative French, to garden-fresh creations of a Michelin-noted chef. An early-Georgian townhouse in Bath is our accommodation for the tour, offering a combination of period atmosphere and 21st century comfort and service. Add to this specially arranged tours of the historic city, a Unesco World Heritage Site, day trips to blissful Cotswold hamlets, cathedral-crowned towns, and lost-in-time villages for a matchless experience in this idyllic region of England.

Day 1: Arrival.
From 1 to 3 in the afternoon, we'll await you in the lobby of The Kennard Hotel, a boutique townhouse hotel in historic Bath. Rooms will be ready by approximately 2 pm, so those who arrive before that time can relax in the inviting sitting rooms of the hotel. Check in and make yourself comfortable before an introductory stroll through the gracious city of Bath. Private Reception in the Pump Room, followed by an Evening concert at Bath Abbey, and Festival Supper in the Pump Room Includes: (D).

Day 2: Bath and Wells.
Guided walking tour of Bath, followed by Sunday lunch in the country (included). Then on to the Cathedral town of Wells, England’s smallest city, which gets its name from the springs that bubble into a pool in the bishop’s garden, then burble through the streets of the town. We’ll visit the splendid Cathedral, dating from the 12th century, with its vast inverted arches (known as scissor arches) and rare and beautiful medieval clock, arriving in time for the pure young voices of the Sunday afternoon Evensong. Return to Bath for evening concert Includes: (B, L).

Day 3: Avebury and Lacock.
The mysterious stone circle of Avebury awaits – we’ll walk among the stones and stop for a pint at the Red Lion, the only pub within a stone circle. Then on to the stopped-in-time hamlet of Lacock, a National Trust village of centuries-old gabled and stone-tiled cottages. We’ll enjoy lunch (included) at The George Inn, an historic pub dating back to the 1300’s. Then to Bath, where the Nash Ensemble will entertain us with Haydn, Mozart, and more in the Assembly Rooms. Includes: (B, L).

Day 4: Bath.
Breakfast (included). A leisurely morning in Bath to do as you please - perhaps a visit to the Fashion Museum on Bennett Street, or the Jane Austen Centre on Gay Street? At 1 pm we'll enjoy a marvelous concert in the magnificent Guild Hall, a masterpiece of Neoclassical decoration. Free time in the afternoon, before a delicious dinner (included) in one of Bath's finest restaurants. Includes: (B, D).

Day 5: Heart of the Cotswolds.
A day in the Cotswolds, those quintessentially English honey-colored villages set in gently rolling hills. We’ll enjoy the mellow stone buildings, village greens and medieval marketplaces of this matchless part of Great Britain, stopping first at Burford, where we’ll take time to stroll down High Street, with its unique shops. Choose a spot for lunch, then we’ll make our leisurely way to the mellow riverside hamlets of Lower and Upper Slaughter, and the tiny town of Bibury, where we’ll enjoy tea ( included) by the fireside at Bibury Court before returning to Bath in time for an evening concert of Mozart, Brahms and Beethoven. We'll stop for supper (included) after the concert at a Bath favorite. Includes: (B).

Day 6: Bath. Breakfast (included).
We'll take a few hours in the morning to further enjoy the lovely countryside near Bath, before lunch and a 1 pm concert in the Guildhall. Free time in the afternoon, then we’ll complete the week with a memorable dinner (included) at the Olive Tree. (B, D).

Day 7: Departure.
Breakfast, then goodbyes to new-found friends before departing Bath on your journey homeward. Includes: (B).
