9. From London: Stonehenge & Roman Baths Full-Day Trip
Visit the ancient standing stones of Stonehenge and picturesque Bath on this day trip from London. Enjoy transportation by air-conditioned coach and a multi-lingual audio guide to the prehistoric monument.
The most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Stonehenge stands alone on the vastness of the Salisbury Plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and its purpose has continued to be a subject of public debate.
Questions such as what this vast collection of stones was intended for and whether it was an observatory of the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery have arisen over the decades.
On this full-day tour by air-conditioned coach, you’ll have a chance to explore the site and do your best to unlock the secrets as you marvel at this remarkable and mysterious feat of ancient engineering and design.
Next, you’ll head to Bath, arriving in time for lunch (not included in the tour price). With fabulous restaurants, teahouses, sandwich and coffee shops, and classic British pubs, you’ll have plenty of choices for a place to eat!
Bath is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents and terraces and stunning architecture. Following a scenic drive into the heart of the city, there will be plenty of time to explore the city at your leisure.
Visit the Roman Baths that were built nearly 2,000 years ago. The magnificent Roman public bath complex and Roman temple were constructed over Britain's only natural hot water spring.
At this World Heritage Site, you can walk around the steaming pool on the Roman paving stones and admire the ancient Roman statues and architecture.
See Bath Abbey and the much-photographed Pulteney Bridge, modeled on the famous Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence. In addition, you might like to see the Jane Austen Centre, and the elegant Assembly Rooms built in 1771.
Shop, explore, and take afternoon tea in the Pump Rooms while listening to live classical music.
