Castle Combe has been called the prettiest village in England, so it may be surprising that many of us will have only seen it on screen - as the fictional Puddleby-on-the Marsh in Dr. Dolittle, the 1960\'s film with Rex Harrison, and more recently a backdrop to Steven Spielberg\'s film War Horse. This magical village was once a weaving town at the heart of the Cotswolds wool trade: you can still see weavers\' cottages where the local red and white cloth was produced. In St Andrew\'s Church, don\'t miss the Norman monument to a knight; his legs are crossed to indicate that he fought in the Crusades. Also in the church is a medieval faceless clock, one of the oldest working clocks in the country.

Avebury henge and stone circles are one of the greatest marvels of prehistoric Britain. Built and much altered during the Neolithic period, roughly between 2850 BC and 2200 BC, the henge survives as a huge circular bank and ditch, encircling an area that includes part of Avebury village. Within the henge is the largest stone circle in Britain - originally of about 100 stones - which in turn encloses two smaller stone circles.

Glastonbury Tor rises like a beacon above the Somerset levels. Visible for over twenty miles, it floats like an island over the misty, verdant landscape. There\'s something almost mystical about this hill and the ghostly tower atop it. Even if you\'re not there on pilgrimage, when you catch sight of Glastonbury you\'ll understand its allure for pagan and Christian alike. In Glastonbury, legend and history meet. The reality is straightforward: a majestic ruined abbey and church set in a charming, offbeat English town unique for its sheer number of New Age and magic shops. But behind the facts lurk legends of Arthur, the Holy Grail, and even the idea that a young Jesus may have visited Britain.
