Local special interest and award-winning travel company Andante Travels has a new brochure for 2020 marking its year-long 35th anniversary celebrations.

The new brochure includes a total of 15 new tours, and a special one that honours the company’s local connection.

Journey Through Wessex, Andante’s first- tour in 1985, is back for 2020, for two special departures.

The seven-day trip begins in Winchester with a lecture on local history before moving to the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes, the Neolithic henge at Avebury, and then to Salisbury. Here, guests spend time exploring the collections at the Salisbury Museum before delving into the mysteries of Stonehenge, and guided visits to the site of Old Sarum and Salisbury’s magnificent cathedral. Other sites include Portchester Castle, Fishbourne Roman Palace and the Roman Baths Museum in Bath.

The tour is led by expert Mark Corney, a frequent contributor to Channel 4’s popular “Time Team” series. He spent more than 20 years recording the field archaeology of Wessex.
