From London: Stonehenge, Bath, and Lacock Trip with Dinner

1. From London: Stonehenge, Bath, and Lacock Trip with Dinner

Get closer to the stones than ever before with this Stonehenge and Bath tour. Step inside the legendary inner circle during this private viewing away from the crowds and enjoy a truly mesmerising experience as the sun goes down. The day includes a visit to the beautiful Roman city of Bath with entrance to the Baths and time to explore the unspoiled village of Lacock. In Lacock, leave central London and travel west until the tour reaches the quaint village of Lacock. This pretty place dates back to the 13th-century and its booming wool industry made it a prosperous town during the Middle Ages. Boasting picturesque streets, historic buildings, and an Abbey in the heart of the village, Lacock is a charming step back in time. More recently, Lacock has been used as a location for many modern TV and film productions, including Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter. Let your guide tell you about this village’s colourful history during a short stop. Next, arrive in Bath. Once loved by the Romans, Bath has been a place of pleasure, relaxation, and well-being for centuries. It is also undeniably one of the prettiest cities in the UK and a designated World Heritage Site in its entirety. See its beautiful honey-coloured Georgian architecture, soak in the peaceful yet vibrant atmosphere, marvel at the impressive Bath Abbey, and learn about the rich heritage of this unique location. Tuck in to a delicious two-course earl dinner at a historic pub and enjoy a private viewing of Stonehenge and entrance into the Inner Circle. After dinner, the tour will depart Bath for your extra-special visit to mysterious Stonehenge. You’ll arrive at Stonehenge, located in the lush county of Wiltshire, in the early evening. This is your chance to see a side of the world-famous stones that most people don’t get a chance to see. Experience the unforgettable mystery of this 5,000 year old attraction and spend some time in the midst of an iconic World Heritage Site as you wander in and around the 40 ton rocks. Following your visit to Stonehenge, the tour heads back to London in the late evening.

2. From London: Stonehenge, Bath & Lacock Full-Day Sunrise Tour

See the remarkable prehistoric monument of Stonehenge at sunrise on a full-day tour from London. Enjoy these jaw-dropping monoliths with a unique viewing experience that guarantees direct access to the stones, unavailable to members of the general public. Depart the city at the crack of dawn, and escape the hustle and bustle of the “Big Smoke” as you travel west by air-conditioned coach. Upon arrival at Stonehenge, you will have privileged access to the inner stone circle to watch a dramatic sunrise before the day time crowds arrive. Built nearly 5,000 years ago, Stonehenge is one of the most popular prehistoric monuments in the world. Enjoy a private viewing of the mysterious monoliths as you stand by the mighty sarsen rock. Your guide will entertain you with stories about the site, and point out the altar, slaughter and heel stones, where the sun rises on the summer solstice. Continue to the small village of Lacock, founded in the Saxon era. Many of the buildings formed part of an extensive monastery complex. Now owned by the National Trust, the pretty village was the setting for Jane Austen's “Pride and Prejudice” and “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.” There will be time for a delightful walk, before enjoying breakfast in a classic English pub. Next, go to the Roman city of Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian architecture at sites such as the Royal Crescent and Circus. Marvel at the city’s beautifully proportioned streets, and see the much-photographed Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon. End at the Roman Baths, the best preserved Roman spa from the ancient world. Dating back to AD 60, the Baths are still fed by the hot springs and limestone aquifers of the Mendip Hills. The museum houses artifacts from the Roman period, including objects and offerings thrown into the Sacred Spring.

This tour was definitely worth the time and money. Our guide Leon was knowledgeable and funny and driver Richard got us everywhere safely and on time. The first stop in Bath was delightful, though getting the full experience of the Roman bath and a good visit to the village is not possible. The pub in Lacock served a delicious meal. The highlight, of course, was the inner circle tour of Stonehenge. Paying for the inner circle tour was definitely worth the price. It rained during our tour, but that only added to the experience. Chris at Stonehenge is a delightful storyteller.

We went on this tour with our teen daughter and we all loved it. Peter is fantastic! Can’t say enough good things about him. He’s has so much knowledge to share about Stonehenge, Bath, and Lacock, as well as London and England overall. Also worth mentioning, he’s very funny! Our driver Jermaine did a great job too and drove safely for 12 hours. We would definitely recommend this tour! It’s worth the extra money for the inside Stonehenge experience and Bath is a beautiful city.

Early start to the day, but well with it!!! I have been to Stonehenge, but wasn’t able to walk next to stones. The archeologist taught our group tons more than on my previous trip!

My tour guide Carol was fantastic. I am so glad I took this trip to Stonehenge. Transportation on the bus was great, and I did not feel rushed at Stonehenge or Bath.

Really great tour, and the experience of having Stonehenge to a small group for a while is pretty amazing! Frank is a great guide, and very engaging
