What You Can Expect

Stonehenge and Bath Day Trip from London

Independent Stonehenge and Bath Afternoon Tour from London

Depart your central London hotel or central meeting point by air-conditioned coach and venture into the English countryside. As you travel, hear interesting facts about the region and your first destination — the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain.

On arrival, enjoy time to explore this atmospheric site at leisure. Head inside, collect an informative audio guide, and ride the shuttle or follow the pathways to the UNESCO-listed stones that date back some 4,500 years.

Marvel at the gigantic stones and ponder how they were transported and raised here. Then, learn how and why Stonehenge was built — most scholars believe it formed a temple aligned to the sun — through the archaeological exhibitions and audiovisual experiences at the visitor center.


Next, continue west to the 18th-century city of Bath. All honey-stoned townhouses, terraces and bridges, this UNESCO-listed city is one of England’s crowning glories.

Enjoy the afternoon to explore this delightful city independently. Perhaps delve into the handsome streets to admire the Georgian architecture, seeing top Bath attractions such the Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge that spans the Avon River.

Alternatively, upgrade to visit the Roman Baths, one of the world’s best-preserved sets of Roman remains. Explore the Great Bath and museum, and discover how the Romans built and expanded the complex over Baths’ natural springs from the 1st century AD.

Or, perhaps upgrade to visit the Jane Austen Visitor Centre. The much-loved English novelist lived in Bath in the early 1800s, and this fascinating museum chronicles her life and works through documents, artifacts and interactive experiences.

Lastly, return to London, where your tour ends with a drop-off near Victoria rail station.

Excellent tour easily the best thing we did while in London. Our guide was friendly and entertaining, the bus was comfortable and the scenery was amazing. We spent just the right amount of time at Stonehenge, but I wish we could have spent more time in Bath. It was just beautiful! Worth every penny!

Fabulous trip! Loved that they pick you up near to where you are staying. Everything went off without a hitch. Stonehenge and Bath were amazing. The tour guide was knowledgeable. Would love to return to Bath and stay there for a week.
The Christmas markets really added to the charm!

Not only did he share informative facts and stories about Stonehenge and Bath, he also talked about sites along the way. He obviously loves his work and brings his sense of humor with him. Once we arrived he gave us time to roam and explore on our own as well.
It was a most satisfying day and well worth the price.

It was a great day. Dan was our guide and was super knowledgable. I would have liked a little more time at Stonehenge. Our guide was excellent at keeping everyone on time, which I appreciate. Its a big bus so a lot of people were on our tour but it was very nice. Dan gave us a walking tour of Bath and it was lovely!
