Kick off your Christmas Eve excursion opposite Earls Court underground station at the Warwick Road exit at 9am. Here, you’ll board an air-conditioned coach for the 2-hour journey to Salisbury.
On arrival, head straight to Salisbury Cathedral, whose remarkable 13th-century spire boasts the title of Britain’s tallest. Opt to climb 332 steps to the top of the tower for incredible views, and observe the original Magna Carta, a collection of documents that established British law.
Following 1.5 hours of free time in Salisbury, you’ll reconvene with your guide and travel past the UNESCO-listed Stonehenge, an iconic stone circle that has confounded historians for centuries.
Then, arrive in Bath for a short walking tour that covers the city’s highlights. (Popular attractions include the Roman Baths and the Royal Crescent.) You’ll then have a further 2.5 hours of free time before completing the journey back to central London by coach—your guide informs you of drop-off points during the journey back.
