3 Day Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Bath and the South West Coast

Explore the best of the West, from its ancient stone circles, to dramatic coastlines and moorland wilderness. You could say that the south west is the most beautiful area of England. Its climate is milder, it brims with stunning scenery and legendary folklore, and the culinary delights of cream teas, pasties, cider, and cheddar cheese are simply scrumptious.

But we can’t tell you west is best; because you have to find out for yourself.

So, join this tour and see the ancient past come to life, explore Stonehenge, wander isolated moors, relax on stunning beaches, and discover one of the most memorable parts of England.

Tour Itinerary

Stonehenge, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Exeter

Day 2

Dartmoor and Tavistock

Day 3

Glastonbury and Bath

Day 1

Explore the ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex, the heart of England’s enduring myths and legends then gaze in wonder at Stonehenge, the powerful stone circle that stands as a testament to our ancestors’ beliefs and sample the local seafood in the beautiful, enclosed Lulworth Cove, and savour the dramatic views of the Jurassic Coast and Durdle Door then view the impressive facade of Exeter’s Gothic cathedral before descending into the city’s fascinating medieval water passages.

You travel through the ancient kingdom of Wessex to Stonehenge. These stunning stone circles give you a glimpse into the spirituality of the past, and offer an experience you’re sure to remember.

After admiring the spiritual majesty of this Neolithic site, you continue to the incredible geological formations of the Jurassic Coast, where the cliffs are full of fossils from the age of dinosaurs. We travel along the coast to the Durdle Door, a beautiful natural limestone arch that juts into the ocean.

Take your time exploring the coast before heading to the historic city of Exeter. Exeter was once the most westerly fortified settlement in Roman Britain, this town boasts ancient city walls, a Norman castle, Gothic cathedral, Tudor heritage, a quayside, and a vibrant commercial and restaurant area. You stay in Exeter for the next two nights.

Day 2

Explore the beauty of the remote wilderness at Dartmoor, where wild ponies graze in the shadow of granite outcrops then delve into Tavistock, birthplace of Sir Francis Drake, the famed British maritime explorer and cross the time-trodden slabs of the medieval miner’s Clapper Bridge.

Explore the remote windswept magnificence of Dartmoor, where you can see strings of native ponies grazing close to the striking rock formations. Dartmoor is also home to an immense diversity of flora and fauna, so enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the moor’s isolated beauty. You cross the ancient Clapper Bridge at Postbridge before heading to Tavistock, the historic market town and birthplace of Sir Francis Drake.

Arriving back in Exeter in the early afternoon gives you a chance to explore the city’s ancient riches at a leisurely pace. The city walls, the Norman cathedral, the Royal Albert Memorial, and the Quayside all await you.

Day 3

Enjoy distant views from atop Glastonbury Tor and explore England’s premier city of architecture, Georgian living and Roman leisure, Bath.

This morning you head for Glastonbury, home to the world-famous Glastonbury Music Festival. Here, you can scale the Glastonbury Tor, long associated with the mythical kingdom of Avalon and King Arthur. You make your way to Bath in time for lunch and a relaxed afternoon. Recharge in one of the many restaurants, tea shops, or pubs before embarking on your exploration of this fascinating city’s heritage. You return to London in the evening.

Are entrance fees included?

Entrance fees are included where specified on the itinerary.

Can I pay in dollars?

All tours are quoted and charged in pounds sterling, but you can pay using your local card and currency.  We will debit the card in pounds sterling and your bank will use their exchange rate at that time to deduct the amount in your local currency.

What time does the trip leave and return?

Departure times will vary depending on the itinerary.  European tours departing from London will usually leave between 05.00am and 07.00am.  Multi day UK tours will leave between 06.00am and 07:30am.  Day trips will depart between 07.00am and 09.00am.  European and worldwide tours that start in an overseas city will have a welcome reception on day one of the tour which is usually around 18.00pm.
