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.

Lucy was fabulous! She had great enthusiasm and knowledge about all the historic and prehistoric sites we visited. I got so much out of this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This was a lovely tour - its a bit more expensive than some of the other Stonehenge, etc., options, but its worth it to have the private and inner access to the stone circle. The hotel pickup was easy and on-time we had a short 10 minute walk from our hotel to one of the designated pick-up spots our guide, Frank, and our coach driver, Malcolm, were perfect gentlemen and a joy to be around all day. They truly enjoy what they're doing, and both gentlemen did their best to share as much information as possible, particularly when we were divided into two smaller groups for entering the stone circle. The stop in Lacock was a treat - this little village is a gem, and I promise that you'll get more out of that than you expect. Our final stop in Bath was lovely - while it would be wonderful to spend more time in this charming town, the time we had was fine - enough to tour the Roman Baths, stroll the town, and enjoy a quick drink at a pub. It is a long day, but it is also a terrific way to get a taste of each of these three beautiful places. Highly recommend.

Excellent!! The whole day was fun but being at Stonehenge close to sunset and being in the inner circle was Magical. When you go, take "some" pictures but be sure to time to just enjoy the experience. Next time we return to London I want to do this... with no camera and just enjoy.

Stonehenge is very isolated. If you're going to go there, you owe it to yourself to go inside the stone circle.

This was an awesome tour. Getting to go into the inner circle was well worth the extra cost. We would encourage everyone to take this tour. It was a great day.

Every part of this tour was excellent. The experience of walking into the inner ring of Stonehenge is magical and unforgettable. David, the guide, was knowledgeable, energetic, and charming. Highly recommended.
