And visit St. George’s Chapel, the final resting place of King Henry VIII or Queen Elizabeth II and the setting for many royal weddings. • Stonehenge Was Stonehenge a temple for sun worship, a healing centre, a burial site or perhaps a huge calendar? How did our ancestors manage to carry the mighty stones from so far away and build this remarkable structure using only the most primitive of tools? Surrounded by mystery, Stonehenge never fails to impress us. • Bath Lastly, we will explore the first city in England to be designated an UNESCO World Heritage site. The gorgeous Georgian architecture of Bath Abbey or romantic Pulteney Bridge will linger on in the memory of your day. Especially, you cannot miss Roman Baths, the preserved bathing complex still flowing with water from Britain’s only hot spring. Be ready to marvel at the dazzling torch–lighting ceremony as dusk falls (not applicable in summer) and have a sip of Bath’s waters in the Pump Room adjacent to the Roman Baths. Estimated arrival time back in London is around 8:00 pm.
Hug a Hairy
We will meet you at the gate and introduce you to special animals who are trained for showing and becoming accustomed to interaction with humans. You will be introduced to the individual animal, taught the best method to approach and reassure and then to comb and caress. Once you have gained the confidence of the animal you will be shown how to approach with sensitivity but authority (a quality we have been taught to distrust in our culture). When you have earned the trust of the animal, you are invited to share moments of heart to heart warmth: the Hairy Hug - the very same way that the Highlanders express affection between themselves! Weather permitting we will then meet the main herd, observing the special herd bond that you now share. This gives you a chance to stretch your legs and see a bit more of the farm and the beautiful landscape. The Experience of making close contact with this proud but affectionate breed of animals will remain with you for a long time, and also equip you with entry-level understanding of how to establish an understanding with another species.
