Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Most day trips make a guided or very brief stop in Bath, but this tour lets you explore on your own for hours.
Depart central London by air-conditioned coach and venture into the English countryside. As you travel, hear interesting facts about the region and your first destination — the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain.
On arrival, enjoy time to explore this atmospheric site at leisure. Head inside, collect an informative audio guide, and ride the shuttle or follow the pathways to the UNESCO-listed stones that date back some 4,500 years.
Marvel at the gigantic stones and ponder how they were transported and raised here. Then, learn how and why Stonehenge was built — most scholars believe it formed a temple aligned to the sun — through the archaeological exhibitions and audiovisual experiences at the visitor center. Next, continue west to the 18th-century city of Bath. All honey-stoned townhouses, terraces and bridges, this UNESCO-listed city is one of England’s crowning glories.
Enjoy the afternoon to explore this delightful city independently. Perhaps delve into the handsome streets to admire the Georgian architecture, seeing top Bath attractions such the Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge that spans the Avon River.
Alternatively, upgrade to visit the Roman Baths, one of the world’s best-preserved sets of Roman remains. Explore the Great Bath and museum, and discover how the Romans built and expanded the complex over Baths’ natural springs from the 1st century AD.
Or, perhaps upgrade to visit the Jane Austen Visitor Centre. The much-loved English novelist lived in Bath in the early 1800s, and this fascinating museum chronicles her life and works through documents, artifacts and interactive experiences.
Lastly, return to London, where your tour ends with a drop-off near Victoria rail station.
The Jane Austen Centre
The Jane Austen Centre is a permanent exhibition. Situated in an original Georgian townhouse, it tells the story of Jane’s time in Bath, including the effect that living here had on her and her writing.
The Royal Crescent is a row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent in the city of Bath, England. Designed by the architect John Wood, the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, it is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom.
Bath Abbey is an Anglican parish church and former Benedictine monastery in Bath, Somerset, England. Founded in the 7th century, it was reorganised in the 10th century and rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries.
Crossing the River Avon the bridge was completed by 1774, and connected the city with the land of the Pulteney family which they was designed by Robert Adam in a Palladian style, it is exceptional in having shops built across its full span on both sides.
The most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and now a world heritage site, Stonehenge stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to be mention public debate ever since.

Wonderful experience. Loved seeing Stonehenge and our guide giving such wonderful stories and history about England. He was so passionate about sharing little pieces of English life and history. Bath was beautiful and would highly recommend getting out of London and seeing how beautiful the rest of England is !!
Gavin our tour guide was fun and incredibly knowledgeable!! Seeing Stonehenge and Bath were amazing!! Gavin even did a walking tour once we arrived in Bath so everyone could see the city and it was totally worth it!!
By far my favorite part of my visit to the UK. I was looking for a Stonehenge visit, but immediately chose this tour when I saw it included Bath. Our guide, Gavin, was both entertaining and very informative with tremendous knowledge of this absolutely beautiful city.
Lovely day. Fortunately it was sunny, if windy and brisk, but the light on the Stones was amazing. Lisa (guide) and Abdul (driver) were terrific; pleasant, timely, did what they said they would. Stonehenge is amazing...why haven't all those scholars and archaeologists and anthropologists and historians figured out everything about the place? And Bath is charming with great pubs...reminded us of Bruges. We had the classic fish and chips at The Pig and Fiddle, and now are Butcombe ale fans.
