Tick off a top England attraction and discover Somerset’s secret villages on this 8-hour tour of Stonehenge from Bath. In a small group limited to eight travelers, you’ll breeze past long lines, often in advance of one hour, at the UNESCO-listed Stonehenge before discovering the secluded villages and quaint countryside of Somerset. Listen to commentary enriched with literary and historical information, and enjoy a traditional English afternoon tea. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Bath are included.
Begin your English experience at your Bath accommodation at 9am, when you’ll board a climate-controlled vehicle and greet your small group of eight or fewer. During the 1-hour journey to Stonehenge, your guide provides a historical overview of the mysterious monument, the purpose of which has eluded historians for centuries.
On arrival at Stonehenge, use your skip-the-line ticket to sail past lines and head straight inside the UNESCO-listed site. Using an audio guide to direct your exploration, wander around the 3,500-year-old stone ring and listen to theories surrounding Stonehenge’s supernatural, spiritual, and astronomical significance.
Then, after returning to your vehicle, you’ll embark on a tour of Somerset’s secluded villages. Delve into the county’s gorgeous countryside, stop for lunch at an English pub that oozes character, and visit villages full of archetypal English cottages and places that inspired writers such as Thomas Hardy and Jane Austen.
Your tour culminates with quintessential tea and cakes before drop-off at your Bath hotel at around 5:30pm.
