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.

Our tour guide, Lucy, and bus driver, Malcom, were very pleasant and knowledgeable. My traveling companions and I would have liked more time in Bath. In Lacock we only had time for dinner, and did not get around. Stonehenge was awesome and since we had this tour we did not have any crowds. The monoliths were gorgeous at sunset.

The tour was fun and informative. Lucy, our guide, and Malcolm, our coach driver, were very cheerful and kept us all on schedule. Lucy had a wealth of knowledge about the sights and was eager to answer all our questions at the locations. The Stonehenge evening viewing was truly magical, as we were a small group and got so close to the stones of course, we did not touch them!. Lucy and Malcolm were also more than happy to help us take photographs. I highly recommend this tour!

Well worth it to see the stones up close; it and #39;s a much different experience than seeing them from afar. Our tour guide was very personable and informative. A great afternoon overall.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Great day! Our tour guide Denisa was fantastic and very knowledgeable about all the sites, and even those in-between! It was an early start to the day, but well worth it to be at Stonehenge an hour or so after sunrise, and the weather could not have been more perfect. Loved Bath, definitely want to go back.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Our guide Dan and driver Martin were terrific. Dan is probably the best guide we've ever had. Funny, informative, helpful. We had 30 minutes inside the circle.

We went on the sunrise tour. It was wonderful. The tour guide was friendly, courteous and not oppressive. The early time was well worth getting to see Stonehenge without all the crowds.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This tour was the highlight of my two-week stay in London. I've visited many times and lived there as a child, and yet had never been to Bath. And a past visit to Stonehenge was so crowded that it wasn't possible to fully appreciate the site. I went on the tour by myself while my husband was at a conference, and I had a great time.

Our tour guide, Frank Burgess, made the tour fun, fascinating and more than worthwhile. His wry sense of humor combined with a breadth of knowledge, kept us going over the course of a somewhat long day. He pointed out many places along the way, including the estate where Stanley Kubrick shot Barry Lyndon, which I appreciated because I love movies. I enjoyed the visit to Bath. The official tour is excellent and I was absorbed in learning about the site, since I hadn't known that it was more than a Roman bath-- it was a temple to the goddess Minerva.

We stopped for a good and satisfying dinner in Lacock, a charming village. On a brief walk after dinner, Frank pointed out the house of Henry Fox Talbot, an early and important pioneer of photography. I'm a fan of all things related to media.

We headed to Stonehenge from there. It had been raining all day, but as we drove up to Salisbury Plain, the skies cleared and the sun came out. It was late in the afternoon and the light was golden.

Frank told us a lot about the site and what the current thinking is about its original purpose. He pointed out a particular stone thought to have been used in healing rituals. We were divided into two groups and took turns walking among the stones. With fewer people, it was easy to appreciate the feel of the place and to take pictures that weren't full of other people.

I thoroughly recommend this tour, whether you're visiting England for the first time or are a frequent visitor. I don't know whether it's possible to find out ahead of time whether Frank will be the guide, but if so, grab a reservation.
