We head to Bitton by coach, to join the heritage Avon Valley
Railway for a journey through the charming wintry scenery,
with a festive mince pie during the steam-hauled trip*. Later we
visit Lacock, an idyllic medieval village of stone cottages and
crooked lanes, untouched by modern development; here there are no
phone masts or electric streetlights. Many period dramas, such as
the BBC series of Pride & Prejudice and Cranford, were filmed
here. Your time in Lacock is yours to spend as you wish. Our visit
includes entry to Lacock Abbey which is decorated for Christmas.
Its ornate cloisters are a delight to discover. We then return to
Bristol by coach, where you are free to dine out this evening.
*Steam-hauled services used wherever possible.
