Stonehenge & Bath Day Tour
This small-group tour from London is your chance to travel through British history – from Romans to royals – in one day. This full-day trip allows you to experience the very best of England’s heritage.
Start your tour from London with a scenic drive to the ancient kingdom of Wessex and a visit to the world-famous site of Stonehenge. Your guide will talk you through the 5,000-year history and mystery of these giant stones set on Salisbury. The tour continues through beautiful counties of Wiltshire and Somerset, passing thatched-roof cottages and idyllic villages, before arriving in Bath.
Formerly known as Aquae Sulis, Bath is home to the only hot thermal springs in Britain, a draw for early Roman invaders. The Georgian elite of London also were drawn to the baths, arriving here in the 18th century to “take to the waters” as cure of rheumatic disease and gout. See the Roman and Georgian influence on the city with a guided tour of its elegant squares, circuses and crescents. Enjoy lunch at a local eatery before continuing your trip to Windsor.
In Windsor, visit the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and the favorite home of Queen Elizabeth II. Your guide will share with you the history of this royal residence and take you on a walking tour of the town. Inside the castle, see the fine furniture and paintings owned by the queen, be charmed by Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and visit St George’s chapel to see the resting place of English kings and queens, including Henry VIII and Charles I. On the way back to London, you’ll pass through historic Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was sealed by King John in 1215.
