Overview

Take time out of your London vacation to discover the delights of the English countryside on this full-day trip. Spend the morning in Bath, a UNESCO-listed city famed for its Georgian architecture, Roman Baths and connection with Jane Austen. Then, travel through the beautiful Cotswolds and visit the sleepy villages of Lacock, where you’ll break for lunch. You’ll also visit Stonehenge, a prehistoric stone circle shrouded in mystery.
  • Day trip from London to Bath, Stonehenge and the Cotswolds, led by an expert guide
  • Visit the UNESCO-listed city of Bath and see the famous landmark sights on a walking tour
  • Enjoy free time in Bath to visit attractions such as the Jane Austen Visitor Centre and the Roman Baths
  • Discover the scenic Cotswolds region and visit the charming village of Lacock
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed Stonehenge and discover the history and myths surrounding the megalithic stone circle
Depart from central London in the early morning aboard a luxury coach, and take in the rolling hills of the English countryside as you travel to Bath, your first stop of the day.

On arrival, plug into your provided headphones, so you can hear your guide’s commentary clearly, and scout out the UNESCO World Heritage–listed city’s top sights on a walking tour. Check off top sights like the Royal Crescent and other striking Georgian crescents and terraces, which inspired Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey and Persuasion novels. Then, make the most of free time to perhaps visit the Jane Austen Visitor Center or the famous Roman Baths (both at own expense).

Continue to the Cotswolds, an area typified by thatched villages and enchanting parishes. Stop in Lacock and explore the village with your guide before breaking for lunch. You might also recognize locations featured in Pride and Prejudice or the Harry Potter film series.

Your final stop is at Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage–listed stone circle.  Stroll around the prehistoric stones with your guide and visit the visitor center to hear about the theories about how and why it was created. After, your day trip concludes back at the original departure point in central London.

Well paced, enjoyable tour.
Our guide Pepe was very knowledgeable and passionate about the sights we were visiting. We were given 2 hours on our own in Bath, 90 minutes in Lacock in the Cotswolds, for lunch, after a nice tour of this tiny town, and about 2-3 hours at Stonehenge.

The time in Bath went very quickly, as there is a lot to see at the baths. We didn't have time to see it all. The admission was not included, it was around 14 pounds, and included an audio headset.

Lacock is a small village. There are many movies an shows filmed in the area and Pepe was keen to point these places out. Scenes for Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth was filmed at Lacock Abbbey, as were scenes for Harry Potter movies. The house shown in the second movie belonging to his real parents is there.

Stonehenge has grown considerably since I last visited. The car park and visitor's center is far from Stonehenge and requires transport by bus. The line for the bus was quite long and the buses did not run as frequently as I felt they should have, only my opinion, but one is ready and excited to see this special place and the delay was frustrating.

Pepe, was very good at explaining the various theories behind this collection of rocks and gave us great insights. He was obviously very passionate about this area and it showed. He answered questions with humor and great interest.

In all it was a long, but great day. Pepe's enthusiasm added to the experience and we all had a great time.

We met the group at the Gloucester Tube station at 7:30am and returned around around 7:30pm.

Thanks, Pepe, for a great day!

This tour was wonderful! So much history in one day. Our tour guide, Pepe, was very knowledgeable about the history of England. Bath was impressive. We loved the drive thru the Cotswolds. The pub lunch was great. We highly recommend The George Inn in Lacock. The bathrooms are pristine. Stonehenge was marvelous. We’ve never seen anything like it. So old! This tour is a must for anyone visiting England. Be prepared to walk a LOT. City Wondets Tour Company is great!

This is a full day and covers a lot of ground. I knew it would be a whirlwind tour and it was. Our guides were good. I thought there might be a little more commentary on the long drive out to Bath about history and places but what we did get was satisfactory. If you are short on time and want to pack several sights in, then this is a good tour for you. But be advised you will not have more than 90 minutes or so in each location.

Unfortunately, we booked for a bank holiday so everyplace we went was extremely crowded. The meeting place was convenient and our two tour guides were very good. However, the trip was not described as we expected. When we arrived at Bath, we were given a choice of going on a walking tour of the town with the tour guides or waiting on line to get into the Roman Baths. Of course, that took up most of the two hours allowed and we were only able to pop into Bath Abbey for a few minutes. There was not enough time to do everything (Jane Austen's house) that was mentioned in the tour description. The Cotswolds portion was interesting but again not enough time to have lunch and actually go to visit the abbey where scenes from the Harry Potter movies were filmed or go to the photography museum. More than enough time in Stonehenge since you cannot go anywhere near the stones (very different than my first visit in 1975). All is all it was worth it, and again, booking on the wrong day probably deterred from fully enjoying the adventure. ructureEueplacethe Harry Poteat lunch o was interest

Great tour. Loved the day especially the Cotswolds. The tour around Bath was wonderful. We opted not to go on the Bath tour since we had been there before so the tur guide took us on a walking tour and explained all the beautiful architecture.

Alex was our guide on this full day tour and she did a great job providing lots of insight to the places we were visiting. This was a small group tour which, to me, is so much more preferable to the large coaches. We had about 18 in our group and everyone was considerate in getting back to the meeting spots on time.
Our first stop was in Bath with an opportunity to visit the ancient Roman baths. My friend and I went immediately to the baths since the line was short and we had arrived before other larger tour buses and knew the lines would probably grow. Entrance fees were not a part of the tour, but that was understood ahead of time. There are a number of exhibits within the baths that are interesting, but if you want any time left for walking around the city or seeing the beautiful park and gardens, give the exhibits a glance and move on to the main part of the baths. The town itself is beautiful and worthy of a side trip of its own.
Our next stop was in Lacock. Alex provided a short walking tour of the 4 street village and then the rest of the time was free for lunch. I was not impressed with this stop at first, but we chose to have lunch at The George Inn and this made up for my disappointment. Our lunch was one of the best meals on our entire trip to the UK. The George is a 14th century historical inn and pub and appears to draw people from nearby towns and villages. If Lacock is on your itinerary, I highly recommend this place for lunch.
Our final stop was in Stonehenge and was the highlight of my day. I had wanted to see this for many years and it did not disappoint. Alex guided us around the stones and then allowed time for some independent viewing and exhibits in the visitor center.
A full day, but one with many interesting and historical sites.
