Let a specialist guide lead you around World Heritage–listed Stonehenge on this exclusive tour that includes early access to the stone circle, so you can beat the crowds. Depart London by coach in the early morning for the 2.5-hour drive and stop at a cafeteria en route to purchase any food or drinks for lunch (own expense).
On arrival, absorb the tranquil atmosphere as you follow your specialist guide along a perimeter path around the protected monoliths on the Salisbury Plain. During your stroll, listen to theories on the astronomical significance of Stonehenge, based on decades of research, and take advantage of great photo ops of this ancient architectural marvel whose original purpose is still unclear.
Ponder the possible origins and construction of the 40-ton bluestone rocks, and learn about the artificially designed post-and-lintel sarsen stones, some dating back to the Neolithic Period and Bronze Age. Your 8-hour tour ends with drop-off in central London.
If you'd like, upgrade to include entrances fees to attractions (see description in Itinerary below).

Windsor Castle and Bath (11 Hours)
Make the most of the day visiting to Windsor Castle and Bath, two more of England’s trophy sights. Choose to have your entrance fee for Windsor Castle included with the tour price, or enjoy the flexibility of paying on arrival.
Following your visit to Stonehenge, continue to the royal town of Windsor, where Windsor Castle, an official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, awaits you. Head inside with your guide and learn about the British Royal Family and the castle’s history as you explore the State Apartments, St George’s Chapel and other public rooms.
Next, travel to to the beautiful Georgian city of Bath. You may choose to visit the Roman Baths — said to be Ancient Rome's best-preserved public baths (own expense). Alternatively, enjoy time at your leisure to explore the city independently. Your day trip then concludes back in central London.
Please note: There will be an opportunity to break for lunch (own expense) in Windsor or Bath.
