What You Can Expect

Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

See Bath Abbey on a day trip from London!

Select a morning or evening tour when you book. Then, depart your central London hotel by comfortable, air-conditioned coach and begin your tour to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge.
Visitors who arrive at the site during main daylight hours are only allowed to stroll the perimeter pathway around the monument, a route roped off from the stone circle. However, this ‘private viewing’ tour lets your group enter the roped-off circle of stones to see the monolithic blocks at truly close quarters.

Hear the fascinating facts and mysteries that surround the monument from your expert guide, and by enjoying the rarified atmosphere of the inner circle, experience the site at its magical best! With luck, and depending on the season, you may even visit during a sunrise or sunset, making the occasion extra special. See below for the morning or evening itinerary. Both tours conclude with a drop-off in central London.


Morning Tour:
After seeing Stonehenge, continue to nearby Lacock: a quaint village dating to the 13th century. Stretch your legs on a guided walk around the pretty lanes, and see some of the locations used in the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and TV adaptation of 18th-century writer Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Afterward, savor a hearty breakfast (own expense) at The George Inn, Lacock’s 14th-century pub, before venturing to the beautiful, UNESCO-listed city of Bath, famous for its Roman spa and Georgian architecture. Tour the well-preserved Roman Baths, built over natural hot springs; visit Bath Abbey, and learn about Jane Austen’s connections to the city. If you wish, follow your guide to see where 19th-century author, Charles Dickens, once lived, and call at a dairy to taste some local cheese. Alternatively, use some free time to perhaps shop for gifts or view Bath’s highlights on your own.


Evening Tour:
Leave London for Bath and visit the stunning Roman Baths and Bath Abbey, as set out in the morning itinerary. Then, drive on to postcard-worthy Lacock to amble around its historical streets. Later, sit down to dinner (own expense) at The George Inn, before journeying to Stonehenge for your ‘private viewing,’ after the daytime visitors have left.

Stonehenge had to be one of the most memorable locations our family has ever been to. Plus we were there on 4th of July - how cool to be part of such a mystery on Americas most celebrated day of the year! The private viewing is the way to go . You had the entire place to your small group, plus if your going to see it you must be right up close to it. You were not allowed to touch the stones, and they are strict about that, and that was ok, you needed to respect the stones. We have photos that will last a lifetime. We were a bit disappointed with Bath. The history was definitely there, but I guess we were expecting more. The water is green just as you see in the photos, not very appealing! Lacock was another charming village in the English countryside. Overall, Stonehenge was the highlight of this excursion - !

This tour was first rate. The coach was comfortable and clean, the guide was extremely knowledgeable and did a wonderful job. The sites were incredible. There is nothing like seeing Stonehenge without a crowd and being able to spend time off of the path and within the stones. Amazing.

A long day but well worth it. Bath tour was excellent. Late lunch was very good and Stonehenge tour was outstanding. Bus was comfortable and our young tour guide was very upbeat with the dry English humor.

Amazing tour. We had 1 hour to explore Stonehenge with just our group of 30 people. Lots of great photo opportunities. Our tour guide was great, I wish I remembered her name, she did the tour with Steve the driver, also great. Lacock is a charming town, the staff at the pub were excellent.
