Great West Way’s prettiest landmarks to have on your radar for your next day out

Looking for ideas for your next day out?

Great West Way has offered up some major inspiration, thanks to a new drone video showcasing some of the best landmarks to be found along the 125-mile touring route.

The route, which is located between London, Bath and Bristol, follows ancient routes and includes picturesque countryside, charming and quintessentially British villages, as well as elegant towns.

There are hundreds of spots to discover, but the new aerial video offers a glimpse at some particularly spectacular landmarks including Hampton Court Palace, Berkeley Castle, Malmesbury Cathedral and regions such as Henley and the River Thames.

There are plenty of various ways to explore the touring route too.

  • Harry Potter themed breaks in the UK that all muggles need on their radars

  • Best UK literary locations that every book lover needs to visit at least once

For a start, there's the GWR Great West Way Discoverer pass (prices from £24) which gives you access to various regions along the route either in one day or across seven days.

Meanwhile, adventurers can kayak or canoe along the Canal & River Trust’s Kennet and Avon Canal, or hike through the picture-perfect Wiltshire landscapes.

Taking the car? A drive across the Clifton Suspension Bridge can offer some very scenic views.

Fiona Errington, Head of Marketing, said: "Those that have travelled the Great West Way know what stunning landscapes and wonders there are to explore.

"One of our objectives when we commissioned this video was to bring the Great West Way to life for those that are unaware of what is located on the route.

"I believe this video does just that, it showcases what’s at the very heart of the route, the many forms of transportation that allow visitors to slow down and enjoy their surroundings, and the breath-taking destinations and attractions, that create a quintessentially English trip."
