What You Can Expect

Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

See Bath Abbey on a day trip from London!

Select a morning or evening tour when you book. Then, depart your central London hotel by comfortable, air-conditioned coach and begin your tour to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge.

Visitors who arrive at the site during main daylight hours are only allowed to stroll the perimeter pathway around the monument, a route roped off from the stone circle. However, this ‘private viewing’ tour lets your group enter the roped-off circle of stones to see the monolithic blocks at truly close quarters.


Hear the fascinating facts and mysteries that surround the monument from your expert guide, and by enjoying the rarified atmosphere of the inner circle, experience the site at its magical best! With luck, and depending on the season, you may even visit during a sunrise or sunset, making the occasion extra special. See below for the morning or evening itinerary. Both tours conclude with a drop-off in central London.



Morning Tour:

After seeing Stonehenge, continue to nearby Lacock: a quaint village dating to the 13th century. Stretch your legs on a guided walk around the pretty lanes, and see some of the locations used in the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and TV adaptation of 18th-century writer Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Afterward, savor a hearty breakfast (own expense) at The George Inn, Lacock’s 14th-century pub, before venturing to the beautiful, UNESCO-listed city of Bath, famous for its Roman spa and Georgian architecture. Tour the well-preserved Roman Baths, built over natural hot springs; visit Bath Abbey, and learn about Jane Austen’s connections to the city. If you wish, follow your guide to see where 19th-century author, Charles Dickens, once lived, and call at a dairy to taste some local cheese. Alternatively, use some free time to perhaps shop for gifts or view Bath’s highlights on your own.



Evening Tour:

Leave London for Bath and visit the stunning Roman Baths and Bath Abbey, as set out in the morning itinerary. Then, drive on to postcard-worthy Lacock to amble around its historical streets. Later, sit down to dinner (own expense) at The George Inn, before journeying to Stonehenge for your ‘private viewing,’ after the daytime visitors have left.

Amazing tour. We had 1 hour to explore Stonehenge with just our group of 30 people. Lots of great photo opportunities. Our tour guide was great, I wish I remembered her name, she did the tour with Steve the driver, also great. Lacock is a charming town, the staff at the pub were excellent.

Wonderful trip, totally worth it to see the stonehenge in private where you get to take photos without much people and enjoy the scenery. The tour guide and bus driver was very friendly and helpful. Lacock was a small little village where we get to see a different type of housing architecture outside of London.

Amazing tour! Paying extra to for the private viewing is definitely worth it. It had been raining that day so we weren't allowed to go inside the stones, but we were still able to go right up to them and around the outside. Bath is such a charming town, and I wish we had gotten more time to explore the Roman baths. We only had an hour. And be sure you make it back to the bus in time! We waited 10 minutes for one woman in the group but had to leave her behind to make it to Stonehenge in time. Lacock was just ok. We made it there right as the sun was setting so it was too dark to see the things our guide was pointing out. The pub was quaint, but the food was only mediocre.

This tour is amazing! The weather is excellent (considering winter) and We are fortunate to stay in the inner circle for a full hour instead of 30mins originally. The bath tour is about 1.5hr. Note that u do not have much time for a proper meal after museum but still, highly recommended tour!!

This was perfect. Bus picked us up on time - EARLY and we drove out to Stonehenge - arrived around sunrise and were able to walk among the stones. If that wasn't a great trip - add in Lacock with a great breakfast and then tour the Roman Baths. Everything was great.

Being able to stand amongst the stones was worth the price and the very early departure. Our guide, David, was funny, enthusiastic and passionate about the historical sites and their conservation. The group was given plenty of time to take pictures at Stonehenge and at Bath. I never felt rushed at all. The only downside to the whole day was getting stuck in traffic on the way back to London and not having a toilet to use on the bus.

Incredible Journey! Private Stonehenge is the only way! Bath is an incredible city to visit and Lacock is fascinating. Our Tour Guide David was simply outstanding with historical facts and had great humour in his dialogue. The best tour you could choose, really worth it!

This tour was excellent, even the bus ride was nice just to see the beautiful landscape.
The sunset went over Stonehenge while we were there, we could not ask for more.
The only thing I would change is to skip dessert so you can spend more time in Lacock wandering around.

This tour was FANTASTIC, by far the best day tour while in London. The guide was awesome about keeping people on time and keeping things moving without being rushed. She was also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in her commentary.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We spent a wonderful day visiting these three beautiful places. The private stay in Stonehenge was really outstanding. This trip gives you the unique chance to walk around and inside the circle before the general península time, in a relaxed way with a small group of people, so you can feel the special atmosphere of Stonehenge. The later visit to Lacock and Bath completes an unforgettable trip.
It was very well organized, a comfortable coach, and very kind and friendly staff .
