What You Can Expect

Salisbury, Lacock and Bath Day Trip from London

See Bath's beautiful Georgian Architecture

Board a luxury coach at your London hotel or in downtown London in the morning. Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox headphones and listen to your guide’s informative commentary as you begin your day trip into the English countryside.

After a 2-hour drive west, arrive in the beautiful Wiltshire town of Salisbury, world-famous for its 750-year-old cathedral that boasts the tallest spire in England. Enter Salisbury Cathedral to soak up the history and grandeur of one of the leading examples of Early English architecture; don’t miss the church’s chapter house, which displays the best-preserved of the four surviving original copies of the Magna Carta. Spend two hours perusing the cathedral, exploring the captivating town and having lunch (own expense) at your leisure before boarding the coach and drive to your next destination.

Travel back in time as you arrive in the unspoiled rural village of Lacock, tucked away in the Wiltshire countryside. Wander the village’s medieval lanes lined with half-timbered houses and stone cottages topped with thatched roofs, and see historic Lacock Abbey, used as the film location for several Harry Potter films and Pride and Prejudice.

Re-board the coach for a 30-minute drive to your final stop, Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian architecture. Take a panoramic city tour to see Bath Abbey, the Pulteney Bridge (modeled after the Ponte Vecchio in Florence) and the Circus and Assembly Rooms. These 18th-century structures are considered the greatest examples of Georgian architecture in the United Kingdom.

You’ll also visit the Roman Baths, the best-preserved public baths from the ancient Roman world, beautifully restored during the Victorian era. Learn about the source of these famous hot springs, discover the baths' uses by the Celts and Romans over the centuries, and learn about the redevelopment efforts to keep this stunning ancient treasure alive.

Take some time to explore Bath’s compact pedestrian city center before embarking on the 2.5-hour drive back to London.

I didn't do this trip, there wasn't enough people so the tour was canceled.

They did put me on a different trip, Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath.

The trip was great, so much to see and do

Our guide, Sal and driver, Michelangelo were absolutely fantastic. Sal was so knowledgeable and informative at every site we visited. Wish every tour could be with him.

We had a wonderful day on our tour to Stonehenge, Salisbury and Bath. What a beautiful ride through the English country side.Our tour was booked with Evan Evans tours. Our driver was Tony and our tour guide was Rowen. Tony had a great sense of humor and kept us laughing. He did a remarkable job getting us back to London at the end of the day, as there was an accident and traffic back ups on the highway. He made some good detours and only delayed our return by about a half an hour, keeping us close to schedule. Some great driving on his part. Rowen was very knowledgeable about the places we visited, which was very good, since I didn't have a lot of time to read up on these places before we left. She had a very pleasant personality and you could tell that she really likes her job. I enjoyed the tour very much, it would have been nice if we could have spent more time in all of the places, but it is a lot to do and see in one day. We were gone for almost 11 hours. We did touch on the best highlights of each place. I would definitely book a tour through Viator in the future.

Our group of three adults had a wonderful trip. The courier we had was very professional and we learned a lot about the countryside and cities we travelled through. He also gave us helpful hints about food and other praticle things. We would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour with 3 really different sites. An excellent combination for one day and not too much travel time from London. Rob (tour guide) and Jimmy (bus driver) were both excellent and Rob has a wealth of knowledge. On time and well organised. No complaints! Thank you!

I had long wanted to see Bath, Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge and don't think that there is a better way to do it than go on a tour like this short of, perhaps, hiring a private car, driver and tour guide at much greater cost. However one goes, you expect the guide to be knowledgeable and engaging. But ours, Daniel, was way more than that and just outstanding in every way. He made the experience much richer than it might have been, pointing out so many things another might not have bothered to and one would miss on their own. He was totally engaged the whole time in seeing we got the most possible out of our experience at a pace that was just right to see all three venues in one day without feeling rushed but never just waiting to move on either. The bus was comfortable and always very well driven, with much of the trip on picturesque back roads. My only complaint is one frequently made and that was the difficulty in finding which bus we were to board and where in the terminal we would find it. On the way back, though, Daniel told us what would be the best place for each to get off to go where we were going. All in all, the tour was truly informative and enjoyable.
