Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Salisbury, Stonehenge and Bath Day Trip from London

See Bath's beautiful Georgian Architecture

Hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned coach and leave central London on your West Country day trip.
As you travel west, hear fascinating information about the region from your guide. Don your state-your-art Vox headphones so you can hear every word of the commentary clearly.
After a roughly 2-hour drive, arrive in the ancient Wiltshire town of Salisbury, famous for its 750-year-old cathedral. This UNESCO-protected church boasts Britain’s tallest spire and houses the best-preserved copy of the Magna Carta – the 13th-century document that laid the foundations for English democracy.

Admire the cathedral’s interior and view the Magna Cart: one of the only four surviving originals. If your tour is between May and September, pause to see the original 14th-century turret clock — the world’s oldest working mechanical clock — in action. This intricate piece of machinery is now in the north aisle, and cathedral guides will demonstrate its striking mechanism and chime while sharing its remarkable history.
Afterward, enjoy free time to discover Salisbury’s charming streets and have lunch (own expense), before continuing to Salisbury Plain, the site of UNESCO-listed Stonehenge.

View this gigantic prehistoric stone circle, whose origins stretch back 4,500 years, and learn how it is now generally accepted it was a temple aligned to the sun. Ponder the mystery of how the stones were transported here, and enter the visitor center to explore the archaeological and virtual displays.
Next, travel to the city of Bath, lauded for its 18th-century architecture. Admire the sweeping terraces and architectural highlights such as Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge: all considered the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Britain.

Visit the Roman Baths, the city’s classical showpiece and world’s best-preserved Roman bath complex. Learn how the Romans built the baths over natural hot springs, and see the showpiece Great Bath, a colonnaded pool filled with steaming spa water.
Lastly, enjoy free time to stroll around Bath’s compact center, and then end your tour with a drop-off in central London.

Absolutely Amazing!! The day is jammed packed with the three different stops, but you have enough time at each place to see the highlights and the guides really know what they're talking about and provide interesting and enjoyable insights. If you're a history buff I'd definitely recommend this tour as the Salisbury stop includes a visit to view an original copy of the Magna Carter. We loved Bath and will definitely we returning as we found ourselves wishing we had more time to explore the town.

After visiting these sites 40 years ago, we decided to do a return tour with the Viator trip. That was a great move for we had a positive experience seeing these now UNESCO sites anew. The bus was very comfortable, the tour guide, Debbie, extremely knowledgable and energetic in sharing the historical facts and behind the scenes stories which all made for a long but well worth it day. Having done some reading and research made the visits much more meaningful. An amazing area for history buffs. Dolores

The tour guide and driver were wonderful! So informative and friendly. The sites were incredible. The only negative for me was time constraint. Three stops were too much to really take in the sites in more then a superficial way. Traffic was heavy, which is an unpredictable variable. I would choose one or two stops if i had it to do over.

We highly recommend this trip. Emily and our driver James were excellent. Efficient and well cared for are two descriptions I would use. The day was long so for those who get tired easily it might be good to just do 2 destinations. And although you get just a short introduction to places we loved it

You must go to Stonehenge and the Roman Baths. Just too much history to ignore. A day well spent and I highly recommend this tour

Fabulous! Charlotte was a wonderful guide and full of interesting information! You don't spend too long at each destination, but it was perfect for my friend and me. I have taken Viator tours before and am always pleased. I will definitely book tours with Viator in the future! Thank you!

We had only 3 1/2 days to spend in London, and wanted to spend one of those days outside of the city. The schedule for this tour is fast paced, but given our limited time, it was a great way to see a lot in a single day. I recommend this for people who can enjoy see the when time is limited, but for someone who wants to soak everything in, I would suggest picking a tour with only two of the sites.

The tour guide was very informative and friendly, and the driver of the coach was good carefully monitoring the traffic!. The tour guide used the travel time to explain what we would see at each location. At the locations we had audio tours which allowed for some self pacing.

Our first stop was Stonehenge. We were able to go through the audio tour on the coach before arriving at the site which was helpful as we were able to experience Stonehenge without being lead around the site. Be prepared for crowds! Salisbury is a small town with a spectacular cathedral. After the tour, we had some time to pick up a quick lunch in Salisbury. If you prefer to spend more time touring, would recommend bringing a lunch and enjoying it on the ride to Bath. Bath is a lovely town, and we had a tour of the Roman baths which are truly amazing. Some of the tours don't go into the Roman baths, but these are a must see. The baths are fed by the only hot springs in Great Britain, and the Roman artifacts from the centuries in which the Romans ruled Great Britain are amazing. There was time after the tour of the Roman baths to take a quick look in town.

Overall, this was a great one day tour, and good value.
