Overview

Be one of a rare few to walk inside the UNESCO-listed prehistoric stone circle of Stonehenge, and visit Bath and medieval Lacock on this day trip from London. Select a morning or afternoon tour for early or late access to the Stonehenge site, and walk inside the inner circle of stones — an experience only available to your group — without the daytime crowds. Depending on the season, your viewing may come with a bonus: an atmospheric Stonehenge sunrise or Stonehenge sunset! This exclusive experience sells out quickly, so book without delay.
  • Early or late access Stonehenge tour with admission to the inner stone circle
  • Walk around the roped-off stones, an experience only available to your group
  • Learn about the UNESCO-listed stone circle from a knowledgeable guide
  • Visit the Saxon village of Lacock and enjoy breakfast or dinner at a vintage pub (own expense)
  • Explore the elegant city of Bath, enjoy a tour of the Roman Baths and visit Bath Abbey
  • Select a morning or evening tour and visit this top England attraction without the crowds
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.

I just don’t think it does justice to Bath or the Cotswolds to cram this much into one day. If Imcould do it again I would spend a whole day in Bath and one in the Cotswolds. Stonehenge can be done easily in half a day. The guide was very good.

Accessing the inner circle was amazing. I didnt mind that they broke the group in half as this allowed for better pictures and the time inside was sufficient to really get a feel for the scale of the site. The breakfast was good but I could have done with more time in bath instead. It was a little short and there wasnt enough time to take the whole audio tour. If Id planned better, Id have opted to stay and take a train back instead of the bus. Overall, well worth the money.

It's a long day, but definitely worth it. I did the evening tour of Stonehenge, so the day started with a trip to Bath. Bath is rather interesting and enough to see and do to not just stay at the Roman Baths. I would think it would make more sense to of had lunch in Bath rather than Lacock which was really lunch/dinner depending how you look at it at about 4:30pm. There wasn't much to do in Lacock after eating in the pub. You also don't get a chance really to eat again after Lacock and don't return to London unitl after 11pm, so you might want to grab some food whilst in Bath or pack something before you go. However, the highlight is Stonehenge. It was magical to be able to go into the middle of the stone, and to be able to take photos as the sun is setting. The tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and very interesting. I think improvements can be made to the first part of the tour, but visiting Stonehenge easily outweighed everything else.

See Stonehenge at sunset when you and your fellow Viator companions (~45) are the only people there. You walk within the monument. Our tour director was outstanding.

Our guide was outstanding, filling in information as we went to each stop. Bath was ok, a bit touristy. Lunch was nice and Stonehenge was special at sunset. Worth it!!

This full day tour was everything we had hoped for! Beautiful coach bus transported us to amazing Bath for a incredulous step back into Roman times then onward to Lacock for a genuinely great meal at a 400+ year old pub! A beautiful sunset walking among the massive stones at Stonehenge was surreal. Perfect pictures on a perfect day!

This was our third trip to Stonehenge and was by far the best one ever! What a gift it was to wander through the henge at dusk when the sun was just setting! It was a sight we will never forget.

This was an absolutely fabulous tour! We picked the evening tour and are so glad we did. The company was Premium Tours and they did a wonderful job with interesting commentary, appropriate stop durations, comfortable ride and amazing experience at Stonehenge. Lucy was our guide and Marty our driver. Lucy ran a tight ship and we made good time and were able to spend a little extra time at each stop. The first stop was Bath and we had plenty of opportunity to tour the Roman Baths Museum and also wander a bit and get a snack in the town square. Next was a visit to the village of Lacock. It was the dinner stop at the George Inn the oldest continuously operating inn, from 1392. The menu is limited and you order while still enroute to Bath and Lucy orders ahead. It was a cool, funky little place and everyone sat family-style at the tables. A great way to meet your bus-mates! The food was not gourmet, but it was good! Finally, you head to Stonehenge. I don't know what I was expecting when I booked the trip, but I guess I thought there would be multiple other buses doing the same thing. I wasn't expecting huge crowds, but I was expecting more than just our bus. Nope. It was just us. Me and 50 of my new best friends! Lucy takes you into the inner circle 25 at a time. She is an archaeologist by training and had tons of great information! We chose to go in with the second group and were so fortunate to be there at that time. The clouds had parted when we arrived and the sun was setting while we were inside. The photos were amazing. Then, Lucy brings everybody out and you can take photos without anyone else in the shot. Absolutely worth every penny for this tour!

This tour comprises a quick visits to the city of Bath, where you'll have to choose to go over the Roman baths historical site and museum which I recommend to do or go around to other spots in the city centre.
If you're thinking of grabbing food, a quick snack will do, it's really a nice little place to have a walk and see as much as possible.
The second stop is a visit to Lacock with a quick tour is not a big place and the guide will show you what you must know about the place, such as some historical background and the spot which were used for the Harry Potter movies, you'll stop to have lunch and carry on.
The Highlight though, comes at the end or first thing in the morning if you take the early visit to Stonehenge, where you'll be taken to the site before or after everyone else is gone and you'll be allow into the stone circle which is normally closed for everyone else this for me was the best, this impressive stone walls which have plagued thousands of stories and theories are definitely worth to see up close.
The guides were very knowledgable and stayed with the group the whole time, with the exception of Bath where you are given the choice of what to visit

We can say many things about this tour, and they all would be great! The bus arrived on time (actually a bit early, which we were thankful for, as it was a wet cold day in London) and we were off on the start of the tour at a time that made sure there was little to no traffic. Stonehenge was the highlight for my boyfriend, as he has always wanted to see it. The idea that we could go inside the Inner circle and look around, made this experience worth every penny. No other tours were there, so we could really take everything in. The tour guide (Claudia) was full of knowledge and was very friendly. We went to Lacock for breakfast and it was very quaint. We didn't get to see the Abbey, unfortunately, because it was too early. The Roman Baths/Bath part was a real treat. We didn't expect it to be so charming. I actually want to go back to Bath and stay there on another vacation. You get lots of time to wander around if you take the Day trip option. Thank you for such a fantastic time.
