TAILOR MADE TOURS
The Ridgeway National Trail follows Britain’s oldest “road” - originally walked by traders, herdsmen and soldiers in prehistoric times – across the very heart of England, from Overton Hill in the Wessex Downs to Ivinghoe Beacon in the Chiltern Hills. The Trail travels through two distinct landscapes, both rich in history and natural beauty. West of the River Thames, the Ridgeway passes through the remote North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), where you will get to see numerous archeological monuments and enjoy wide, open views over the rolling hills to the south. East of the River Thames, The Ridgeway travels through woodlands, nature reserves rich in wildlife, and quaint villages and small towns. If you are curious about archeological treasures and enjoy quiet footpaths surrounded by natural beauty, this tour will most certainly not disappoint.
