England’s Great West Way
The Great West Way
At one end you have London, the ideal entry point to the Great West Way
Along the rest of the route lie relaxing riverside towns like Henley-on-Thames, characterful villages like Pewsey and plenty of lush, green landscapes. These places are all intrinsically linked, and well worth visiting in their own right.
The Great West Way is for slow travellers who are just as interested in the journey, and the colourful characters encountered along the way as they are to the big adventures that lead to unexpected diversions. The long-awaited pilgrimage to Stonehenge, perhaps, that leads to the secret stones of Avebury and 4,000 years of history you never knew existed. It’s about saying yes to new experiences and delighting in smaller, simple, special things – as well as the superlatives.
