What You Can Expect

Christmas in Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath

Christmas Day in Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath

Start your Christmas tour at the Royal Borough of Windor, for a walking tour around this majestic town. Here you will see Windsor Castle - built high above the River Thames, which has been home to the Royal Family for over 900 years.

Continue to Stonehenge. Clouded in mystery, the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and an important prehistoric site. But beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last hundred years the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids.

Enjoy a traditional 3 course Christmas Meal with all the trimmings in a beautiful Wiltshire town, close to the Stonehenge site.

Then you will travel to the beautiful Georgian City of Bath and take a panoramic tour of some of the finest architectural sights in Europe, including Bath Abbey, the Crescents, the Circus, Assembly Rooms and the famous Pulteney Bridge. Explore the Roman Baths, built around thermal springs, which have been supplying water for over 2,000 years. In Roman times a great Temple was built next to the sacred spring - the waters were believed to have healing properties and attracted visitors from across the Roman Empire.

Please note:
Stonehenge is closed on Christmas Evening but you will view it from the road

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2012

Excellent guide (Ed) and very knowledgable and kept our interest high. We should had been informed though that all attractions would have been closed because it was Xmas day. Xmas lunch was of a enrage quality.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2010

There's nothing else to do in London on Christmas Day, so this tour appeared to be a very good alternative but it was very unorganized at the Victoria Station pickup point. We almost got left because original hotel pickup sent us to wrong gate. ur tour guide was unorganized which resulted in our bus being the last to leave almost 30 minutes late. I knew that all the venues we were going to were closed and we would only get a site tour. Because we left late, out stay at Windsor was rush, rush, and we had about 20 minutes there. We literally were run through the streets.

Lunch was so, so and lasted for two hours. We could have had more time seeing things and less time sitting. Food was very average, service at pub was very good.

Our guide was knowledgeable and opinionated which was charming in its own way. My advise. Get started on time. Cut lunch down to 1 hr. Leave time to see the sights even if they are closed. It gets dark early. Be more organized at the pickup point. Have all you passengers from hotels in a certain area of the city on the same tour. That way when you return in the evening you will not spend 90 minutes delivering passengers to hotels all over London. Although we did enjoy the impromptu city tour on Christmas night.
