What You Can Expect

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

Visit the magnificent Windsor Castle

Start with a pickup from your London hotel, and travel out of the city to visit majestic Windsor Castle. Be one of the first visitors of the day, and beat the crowds as you explore the elegant State Apartments and St George’s Chapel with your guide. The castle is one of the Queen’s weekend retreats, and is the perfect place to experience some 900 years of pageantry at your own pace.

Continue onward to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge, one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world. Stonehenge is thought to date back nearly 5,000 years, and very little is known of its origins. Was it a place of pagan sun worship? Could it have been an ancient burial ground? Decide for yourself as you explore the site.

Your next stop is the pretty village of Lacock, one of the most picturesque settings in the country. Lacock dates back to Saxon times, and has been used more recently as the setting for movies and television dramas such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and the adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Take the weight off your feet and sit down for lunch at the George, a traditional English pub built in the 14th century. On rare occasions, when the George is closed, a carefully selected alternative pub may be visited for lunch instead.

Continue to your final stop in the charming Georgian city of Bath, once home to the famous British author Jane Austen. Start the visit with a coach tour of the city, and see top Bath attractions such as Pulteney Bridge and the Royal Crescent as well as the honey-colored Georgian architecture for which the city is famed. After getting your bearings, set off on a short stroll with your guide and scout out the Roman Baths and beautiful Bath Abbey. Walk around the city’s cobbled streets, shop for souvenirs and take time to pose for photos in front of the beautiful buildings.

Please note: on busy days, this tour may operate in reverse order and visit Bath first.

Lovely tour. The sights were beautiful. The guide not only provided a history of each site, along with other information during the route. He recited Shakespeare and told humorous stories as well. We loved it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Loved this tour! Mike and Derek were the best! Lots of information provided going to and from locations. Lunch at the George Inn was well worth it. Wonderful to see these 3 places in one day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This tour restored my confidence in day tours. Our guide Ross was beyond professional - funny, engaging, full of knowledge and make of all us at ease with our traveling needs/questions. Ross tour guide and Steve our driven even make sure they dropped us off at the best location for us to get back to our hotels at the end of the day and make helpful dinner recommendations - this is something extra that I didn't expect and greatly appreciate. Yes this trip is slightly rushed but provided we are squeezing 4 sightseeing spots I think this is well worth the money especially if you only have limited time in London - i'll say this is THE tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Very informative and although I am sure some would love to spend more time in the castle, for me it was perfect. Bath is very beautiful and Lacock was so quaint and a nice place to walk around. The lunch was good and traditional. Lacock is where part of Harry Potter filmed his parents house is there as an added bonus. Stonehenge was great and we had enough time to walk around, take lots of pictures and visit the gift store.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Wonderful tour. Wish we had more time to explore Bath.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

I recommend this tour to all those who are interested in history, art and architecture. Stonehenge is just way beyond beautiful. We had a great time visiting all 3 places. Though the entry fee for Roman Bath was not included in this package, we could spend time around the market and Abbey. The lunch was filling and tasty. There were 3 options we could choose from. We really enjoyed this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great tour and great experience! Note- if you like to experience all that a site has to offer and take your time, this tour if not for you. You will feel hurried and rushed and herded. However, if your time in London is limited as ours was and if the idea of planning a day trip with four stops in a foreign country is a bit daunting to you as it was to us, this is a great way to do it.

We had enough time to enjoy Windsor, Bath, lunch in Lacock, and Stonehenge. Yes there was a line at Windsor-- measure your expectations and remember that queuing is an authentic part of any English experience. We had just enough time to visit the Roman Baths and to pop into Bath Abbey. Lunch in Lacock was pleasant and you get to use a bit of wifi. Finally, Stonehenge was very impressive. We did not see the exhibits, choosing instead to take the shuttle up to the stones and walk past the Stonehenge Cursus to rejoing the group.

Our tour guide Ross, and our driver, whose name regrettably escapes me, were both professional, polite, capable, considerate, and efficient. Our driver kept us on time safely and securely. Ross provided info about each attraction and the necessary logistics, and he went above and beyond what is included in the price of your tour-- a complimentary guided tour around Bath, a short walk around Lacock, and at the end of the tour, directions and dinner recommendations to each family.

Note there is no wifi on the bus bring a guidebook to read or questions to ask your tour guide. Alternatively, make friends with the people around you I did not do this but have heard it is possible. Looking at other reviews on TripAdvisor, it seems a lot of people were confused about the morning pickup/meetup logistics. Call Viator a day or two beforehand so you know exactly what to do.
