Your day trip starts with departure from London by coach for the drive just west of the city, where you’ll arrive at your first stop, Windsor Castle. The longest-occupied palace in the world, Windsor Castle has been home to the British royal family for nearly 1,000 years. Head inside with your guide to tour the lavish State Apartments and see St George’s Chapel. As you explore, learn about the history and design of the castle from your guide.
Then return to your coach and head to Stonehenge, admiring the rolling Wiltshire countryside along the way. When you arrive at the site, located on a plain near Salisbury, wander around the formation of ancient stones, thinking about what they could possibly mean, and check out the visitor center for more insight into the spiritual significance and possible origins of the site. Thought to date back 5,000 years, Stonehenge is a mystery that may never be solved.
Next, continue to your last stop of the day, the Georgian town of Bath. With your guide, take a panoramic tour of the pretty city to admire its stately architecture and charming narrow streets. See Bath Abbey and the Pulteney Bridge, which was inspired by Florence’s Ponte Vecchio, and visit the city’s claim to fame, the Roman baths, one of Europe’s best-preserved Roman spa sites.
Your day trip then concludes with the drive back to London. You’ll have time to buy lunch (own expense) in either Windsor or Bath.
