England in One Day: Stonehenge, Bath, the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from London

Visit Shakespeare's birthplace, with Champagne and scones served in his picturesque garden in summer

Depart from near Victoria Railway Station in central London and leave the hustle and bustle behind you as you travel out into the English countryside by luxury coach. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride as London’s urban scenery gives way to the open greenery of the countryside.

First, head through the rolling Wiltshire plains to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge, widely considered one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world. The enormous stones are believed to have been brought from the Preseli Mountains in Wales — a distance of over 280 miles (450 kilometers) — sometime between 3,000 BC and 2,000 BC, though to this day nobody is sure of the exact reasons for their arrangement and placement. Marvel at the huge stone circle, discover the many mysteries surrounding it and decide for yourself why Stonehenge was built.

Continue onward to the fine city of Bath, birthplace of authoress Jane Austin. Explore the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage-listed city — considered by many to be one of the prettiest cities in England — with your guide, and enjoy capturing its attractive Georgian architecture, crescents and terraces on camera. After your tour, enjoy a little free time to wander the cobbled streets and peruse the shops at your leisure.

Head north from Bath through the heart of the Cotswolds, widely thought of as one of the most beautiful stretches of countryside in England. Take in breathtaking views of open fields criss-crossed by dry stone walls as you travel, and bustling market towns with magnificent churches. Enjoy the spectacular scenery from the comfort of your coach.

Arrive in the charming town of Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare and home to the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. Stratford is a charming market town set in the heart of rural England, with a delightful river winding its way slowly through the town. Enjoy Champagne and scones in Shakespeare's garden (the reception will take place indoors in winter), stretch your legs and explore Stratford to soak up the town’s wonderfully welcoming atmosphere.

At the end of your time in Stratford-Upon-Avon, hop back in your coach for the return journey to London, where your tour will conclude.

An awesome day from start to finish.The guide and driver were really committed to making sure our day was perfect.Would do it again for sure.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This was a great tour to see lots for those on a short time frame. There was only 1-2 hours at each stop.....but that was necessary in order to get around all the sites. Just seeing Roman baths could take all that time without much of a look around Bath.....but just have to watch the time and try and get as much done as possible

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

My sister and I really enjoyed this trip. David made it fun while we were learning. We would highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

First of all, I'd like to say that our tour guide, David, made the tour. He was a font of knowlege, and he shared it not only by telling you what you were seeing and the history of it, but but talking to the driver. He also managed to know most of our names withing the first hour, which was amazing, and he engaged us directly with tidbits of knowledge and humor if you have a thin skin, please try and take it in the manner it is intended. The tour itself was great. I would have liked a little more time in Stratford-upon-Avon, and maybe a little less in Bath, but the time at Stonehenge was perfect.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

An enchanting introduction to Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswalds, Bath and Stonehenge.

Highly recommended. The tour guide excellently pointed out the history of each site. The whole trip lasted about 12 hours. We had a great time and would visit other sites using this company.

Excellent, knowledgeable tour guide. Bus driver made the trip very comfortable and smooth and went out of the way to drop people close to their destinations on the way back.

Nick was the funniest and most knowledgable tour guide we could've asked for! One of the highlights of our entire trip to England was having Nick as our tour guide.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was a wonderful full day trip out of London. The London countryside is so beautiful, and the 3 areas of interest we visited were wondeful, i.e. Stonehenge, Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon.

The guide was very interesting and the bus driver superb.

Highly recommend to anyone who wants to explore a little of the countryside while they are in London.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

HIGHLY recommend David and driver Dan for this tour. David was brilliant, hilarious, and showed us the best sites while cleverly avoiding crowds. Really made you feel like you were getting more for your money. Dan drove like and expert and we couldn't have asked for better service. My only complaint is that we didn't book more tours with them while we were there. David was one of the highlights of our trip! You'll love the sites and history you receive with this tour.
