What You Can Expect

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, Including Pub Lunch in Medieval Village of Lacock

Visit the magnificent Windsor Castle

After pickup from your central London hotel or a central meeting point, travel by air-conditioned coach to your first stop: magnificent Windsor Castle.

Along the way, hear tales about this medieval royal residence, the world’s oldest occupied castle, and how it’s still used by Queen Elizabeth II as a weekend residence and for state ceremonies.

On arrival, be one of the first visitors to enter, and beat the crowds on a guided tour of the opulent State Apartments and St George’s Chapel. Soak up the sense of pageantry and 1,000-year history and then continue by coach to Stonehenge.



Admire England’s countryside as you travel to Salisbury Plain, the home of this UNESCO-listed stone circle, whose origins stretch back 4,500 years. Marvel at the prehistoric edifice and discover how it is now generally accepted it was a temple aligned to the movements of the sun. Gaze at the stones, ponder how why they were transported here, and explore the cutting-edge visitor center to see its archaeological and virtual displays.

Next, continue to the picture-postcard village of Lacock, one of England’s prettiest spots. Dating to the 13th century, this romantic village has starred in period TV drama adaptations such as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, as well as movies such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Head inside The George Inn, a welcoming, 14th-century pub, and savor a delicious, traditional English lunch. Very occasionally, when The George is shut, you will visit a similar, nearby pub for your meal.

Duly refreshed, venture onward to the handsome Georgian city of Bath, once home to Jane Austen, the much-loved 18th-century English novelist. Enjoy a panoramic coach tour of the honey-stoned architecture, admiring top Bath attractions such as the sublime Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge on route.

Then, take a short guided stroll past the famous Roman Baths and impressive Bath Abbey. Delve into the cobblestone streets, browse for souvenirs and take snaps of the lovely 18th-century buildings.

Your tour then concludes with a drop-off in central London.

Please note: on busy days, this tour may run in reverse order and start with the visit to Bath.

Enjoyed this tour very much! Our tour guide made long drives between locations interesting and fun. We took the tour in December so unfortunately it was too dark to really enjoy Bath our last destination but I'm sure it's not the case for spring and summer months. I'm also very thankful to our guide making it possible for many of us to go inside Roman Baths. We're late because some of the people didn't return from breaks on time and he literally ran with us from the bus to Roman Baths showing the way.

This tour was amazing! Carol was a great guide and the views were beautiful. Lacock was a great addition to the tour. The George Inn was welcoming and the food was delicious. Be smart when figuring out what to wear because the winds sure whip around Stonehenge!!

Great tour! Even though the stops at each location were brief, the guide made the whole experience informative, fun and memorable.
bath was a real highlight, it is amazing, and of course Stonehenge was inspiring.
Windsor was a great glimpse into the history of nation.

This tour was amazing! It is a long day but a great experience. You have plenty of time to explore each place on your own and the views throughout the drive are beautiful. We especially loved the lunch in Lacock and would highly recommend purchasing a ticket to walk through the Roman Baths.

So much to see in one day, but the time on the bus passed quickly with our very knowledgeable guide, David, giving a great running commentary along the way. A jam-packed itinerary, but we had a good amount of time at each venue to explore and although would have loved more time at Windsor Castle, it's close enough to London to return later in your holiday to really do it justice. Late lunch at Lacock was a nice meal and a charming little village with some interesting history.

The tour was amazing from the food at the pub to Stonehenge. The only thing to check is if the Baths are open, the baths actually close at 5 and depending on the route you may not make it there in time.

This is such a great tour - though it's long and you have to wake up early, it's totally worth it. I definitely recommend who anyone who has not been to Windsor or Stonehenge. Our tour guide is so knowledgeable and btw...there's wifi on the bus which was very very cool.
