What You Can Expect

Inner Circle Access of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock Day Tour from London

See Bath Abbey on a day trip from London!

Select a morning or evening tour when you book. Then, depart central London 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.

It was a cold day even in September but it was really special to see Stonehenge up close. Tour gave us plenty of time to wander around in Stonehenge after giving us a brief history lesson. We had plenty of time to take pictures and see the carvings on the stones. Very cool.

Loved this tour! The baths were amazing in Bath, though I would like to go back another time to tour the rest of this amazing city built of white limestone. You feel like you've walked back in time when you visit Lacock! Lunch in a 13th century pub was delicious and the walking tour around the town is very interesting and informative. There is a Harry Potter filming location here that is part of the tour. Finally, our sunset visit to Stonehenge was spectacular! It is a privilege to walk among these ancient stones and to learn the latest theory about how Stonehenge was constructed! A full day tour that is worth every penny!

Highly recommended. Pictures from the outer walkway will not do this justice after you've been able to appreciate the size of this structure up close. Breakfast at Lacock was great and despite the rain had a good time exploring Bath.

We were so impressed by our guide, Julie and driver Richardo. The tour bus was on time and very clean. The tour was well structured with Julie giving narration throughout the day however we felt the tour needs to be about an hour longer. We would have liked more time in the gift shop at Stonehenge as we only had 10 minutes to buy and use the restroom so it was rush, rush, rush. The inner circle was unbelievable as you are right up there with the rocks and you are the only people as everyone else has left. There was 50 on our bus so it was not too big to have 2 groups go in to take pictures. It's amazing how big the rocks are in person so spend the extra money to do the inner circle tour. A bucket list memory for sure!

What a fantastic trip! Stonehenge was by far the highlight of the day. Our group was split in half and had 30 minutes to spend inside the stone circle. It was a dream come true for me to be able to see this sacred site this way.
While the city of Bath was charming, I was claustrophobic inside the Roman baths. The small rooms were packed with tourists. I am normally not claustrophobic at all. The abbey was beautiful and definitely worth the trip. The town of Lacock was charming. The meal was adequate, but not especially tasty to our group of 3.
The tour guide Lucy was very knowledgeable and the drive Daniel was terrific. Both were very happy to take photos of us at the sites, but especially so for Stonehenge when they were with us the entire time.
Highly recommended tour!

Absolutely worth the time and money! This tour delivers exactly what it promises - we were the very first group to arrive at Stonehenge, so we have amazing photos with not another person in sight! No crowds, no noise, just this amazing and unique spot in the world with only our group and a few guards in sight. If you care to see Stonehenge, see it this way.

Amazing tour and well worth it to get the inner circle access. Stonehenge was the highlight of the trip for my husband and 11 year old. When you are in the inner circle, you get up close to the stones and can really appreciate them. The Roman Bath in Bath was so interesting and we could have spent more time exploring Bath. Laycock is a charming village and the pub lunch was quite good We highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was wonderful and the tour was very educational!! This type of access to Stonehenge is definitely the way to experience it. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth the money. Bath and Lacock are beautiful. It's an early morning start, but I would highly recommend this tour!!

Worth every penny! Tour guide was quite knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed Bath, but would have liked about another hour to walk the city and enjoy the street entertainment. If you just wanted to see the baths and have a quick bite, it was perfect. Dinner in Lacock was nicely done. The visit to Stonehenge was wonderful and we particularly enjoyed the fact that our guide cleared us all out so that we could get our postcard photos. What a treat!
