Tour Schedule

A fully guided day trip to Britain’s most important prehistoric monument “Stonehenge” and the beautiful city of Bath. This coach tour from London includes admission and an audio guided tour of Stonehenge. Your guide will also give you a tour of Bath and you will have free time to enjoy the city.

We combine two of England’s most popular attractions with a fully guided tour of mysterious prehistoric Stonehenge and the beautiful golden city of Bath, steeped in the history of the Roman era and Georgian period.

Stonehenge

After departing London we head west into the rolling hills and chalk down lands of Wessex, a land of burial mounds and Stone Age settlements. High up on Salisbury Plain stands the greatest Neolithic monument of all, the prehistoric circle of Stonehenge. As we drive towards the area our guide will enlighten us with the history of this powerful place. We can hear of the different periods of building, the different types of the stone used, the alignments of the monument and theories behind its construction.

We will learn of what is known and discuss ideas about what may never be known. We are then able to walk around the entire site with an audio guide to gaze upon and contemplate this Stone Age marvel. After wandering around the Stone Circle explore the Visitor Centre and Exhibition, including the fascinating ‘Standing in the Stones’ 360 degree audio visual display. There will also be time to explore the Neolithic Houses. Step inside the see how people lived 4500 years ago, with volunteers on hand to explain how the houses were built, what materials were used and demonstrations on making tools.

Bath

We then head further westwards passing villages of flint and thatch into limestone country and down towards the World Heritage city of Bath. Here in the valley of the River Avon flows the only hot springs in the country. Gallons of hot water bubble up to the surface every day and, back in time, this had attracted both the Celts and the Romans who named the city Aqua Sulis, when the settlement became a premier Roman resort in the First Century AD.

Later in the 18th Century the city was beautifully re-invented by the Georgians. The spa became a place to see and be seen, a chance to rid themselves of stiffness of the joints and gout. The town was blessed with wonderful new houses, elegant crescents, terraces and squares. It became home to Jane Austen, Thomas Gainsborough, Lord Nelson, Alexander Pope, Napoleon III, a place for Royalty and nobility to socialise and take the waters.

Upon arrival join our guide for an eye-opening walking tour of the city, visiting the Royal Crescent, the Royal Circus, Bath Abbey and of course the Baths. You can then enjoy a leisurely lunch and a chance to look around the shops, boutiques and also to visit the Roman Baths Museum if you wish. Estimated time of arrival back in central London is 20.00pm

FAQ’s

Will the tour pick-up from my hotel?

Not unless you are staying at a hotel that is a designated pick-up (you will see options for these before you pay).  This is because of Government actions to help prevent pollution, no tour operators have been allowed to make individual hotel pick-ups since 1st April 2017.

Are there toilets on the coaches?

Some coaches have toilets, some do not, but on all tours there are regular comfort stops of no longer than 2 hours apart, plus all places visited have toilets on site.

Will we have time for a full lunch stop whilst on tour?

Unless you book a tour that includes a specific lunch stop then no.  Most tours are targeted at seeing as much as possible in one day and do not have time for a full stop.  There are options to buy food and snacks at all sites visited, but these can be expensive and most people prefer to bring food and drink with them.  Supermarkets, e.g. Tesco Express offer excellent and great value, pre-prepared food that is ideal for this.  Here is a store finder link.

Will the tour return to for example London at the time stated or can it be late?

Most tours return at the expected time, but this is always subject to traffic and it is possible there could be a delay and so it is always wise to allow plenty of spare time if you are planning on booking theatre shows, trains or flights etc. after your tour.

What clothes should I wear?

It is always wise to check the weather forecast before setting out.  It is good to plan in case of rain, with perhaps a shower coat and umbrella.  There will likely be quite a bit of walking on tours and comfy shoes are a must and if any of the tour is on grass e.g. Stonehenge Inner Circle tours then waterproof shoes are sensible.  It is often colder out of London than in London particularly if windy and a jumper or fleece in summer are wise and a warm coat in winter.

If visiting London how much time will it take to see all the main sites, will we have time for more than one out of London tour if we only have a week? How long in advance should I book tours?

It is a common mistake that people think it may take six days to see London and only allow a day for out of London tours.  However there is so much to see out of London that four days to go out of London will be an amazing experience to see maybe all these locations, Dover, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Windsor, Winchester, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Stratford, Oxford and Warwick.

There are excellent day tours of London that see all of the main attractions in one day and then perhaps allow a further two days to see the Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour and other London attractions not included on the main tours and do not forget to book your show/theatre tickets well in advance too.

These are all very popular tours, most sell out well in advance and it is wise to book your tours, theatre and attractions several months in advance and you will find good planning in advance will optimise your holiday.

Is it better value to tour sites of London and out of London sites on our own, perhaps hiring a car?

No, fixed tours of both London and out of London are much better value than visiting sites individually and you will find going individually entrance costs alone will add up to more than the fixed tours, even before you factor in travel costs.

Do tours pick-up from any of the London airports?

Sorry no tours depart or return from any UK airports.  There are however excellent rapid express trains for example the Heathrow Express.

Can you help me find a discounted best value hotel? Plus theatre/shows and other attractions?

Yes we certainly can and here are some useful links.
