What You Can Expect

Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

See Bath Abbey on a day trip from London!

Choose a morning or evening tour when booking, and then leave your central London hotel to visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge, free from its daytime crowds. Visitors arriving at the site during the peak daylight hours are not permitted to have direct access to the intriguing stone circle. However, your ‘private viewing’ tour enables your group to walk inside the roped-off circle, and admire the stones close up.

Hear the secrets and mysterious stories about Stonehenge from your expert guide, and experience the site at its atmospheric best! Depending on the time of year you visit, you may even be lucky enough to catch the sunset or sunrise; it’s sure to make your Stonehenge viewing an unforgettable experience. Read on for more details of each option; both tours finish with a drop-off at Victoria in central London.

Morning Tour:
After exploring the stones with your guide, travel onward to the nearby village of Lacock, a place often cited as one of England’s most picturesque villages. Hear of Lacock’s past as a Saxon dwelling, and learn about its use as a setting for many movie and TV programs including the adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Stretch your legs on a walk with your guide, and then head inside the George, a 14th-century pub, for breakfast (own expense).

Continue to Bath, a UNESCO-listed city in the county of Somerset. Enjoy a tour of the Roman Baths, visit Bath Abbey, and learn some more about Jane Austen, who was born in the city. If you wish, enjoy a short walking tour to see where the legendary novelist Charles Dickens lived and worked as a young man, and sample fresh cheese from a local dairy. Alternatively, make the most of some free time to explore independently.

Evening Tour:
From London, travel first to the city of Bath to explore the Roman Baths and visit Bath Abbey, as described for the Morning Tour. Continue to Lacock for a walk around the picturesque village, and then enjoy dinner at the George pub (own expense). Last, but not least, travel to Stonehenge for your tour of the stones when the day-trippers have left the site.

After my son and I traveled across the pond to England, it was well worth it to get up extra early to catch the 'Sunrise Tour'. Our tour guide was professional, well informed and very interactive. Although the arrival at Stonehenge was not exactly at sunrise, the rising sun still made an incredible effect on our photos. Best part was walking among the stones with such a small group, we got more than enough time to take pictures, many looking like no one else was there. We even took a bunch of extreme close ups of all the weathering in the stones.

Leaving Stonehenge, we saw the growing line to get in, after the stones are roped off. Incidentally, the ropes are very far away from the stones. Also, the Gift Shop is open early, contrary to prior reviews that it would be closed for the early morning tour.

Absolutely fabulous experience of being the group at Stonehenge at dawn and watching the sun rise - although a bit cloudy and with misty rain - this only added to the historic feeling as one could imagine the Druids emerging from the mists to perform a ceremony.. Stonehenge tour guides/custodians great sources of advice and information while keeping a wary eye to ensure that therules are adhered to and that Stonehenge will be there in its present state for future generations. Highlight was a successful wedding proposal between a young couple from our bus in the middle of Stonehenge.Tour guide Jason gave a very informed presentation about Stonehenge and it's history on the way there. He kept everyone informed all day about coming attractions and ensured that everyone knew time and place of pickups so we were able to keep on schedule. Fine English breakfast in the village of Lacock with time left over for a look around the village.
On to Bath and its Roman Baths - here we were given free reign and able to explore the Baths at our own pace and marvel at the engineering works that the Romans caried out.
Would have loved to had more time exploring the city of Bath but realise that time is limited.
