What You Can Expect

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, Including Pub Lunch in Medieval Village of Lacock

Visit the magnificent Windsor Castle

After pickup from the central London meeting point, travel by air-conditioned coach to your first stop: magnificent Windsor Castle.

Along the way, hear tales about this medieval royal residence, the world’s oldest occupied castle, still used by Queen Elizabeth II as a weekend residence and for state ceremonies.

On arrival, be one of the first visitors to enter, and beat the crowds on a guided tour of the opulent State Apartments and St George’s Chapel. Soak up the sense of pageantry and 1,000-year history and then continue by coach to Stonehenge.



Admire England’s countryside as you travel to Salisbury Plain, the home of this UNESCO-listed stone circle, whose origins stretch back 4,500 years. Marvel at the prehistoric edifice, now generally thought to have been a temple aligned to the movements of the sun. Gaze at the stones, ponder how they were transported here and explore the cutting-edge visitor center to see the archaeological and virtual displays.

Next, continue to the picture-postcard village of Lacock, one of England’s prettiest spots. The 13th-century village has starred in period TV drama adaptations such as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, as well as movies such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Head inside The George Inn, a welcoming, 14th-century pub, and savor a delicious, traditional English lunch. On rare occasions, when the inn is shut, you will visit a similar, nearby pub for your meal.

Duly refreshed, venture onward to the handsome Georgian city of Bath, once home to Jane Austen, the beloved,18th-century novelist. Enjoy a panoramic coach tour of the honey-stoned architecture, admiring top Bath attractions such as the sublime Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge on route.

Then, take a short guided stroll past the famous Roman Baths and impressive Bath Abbey. Delve into the cobblestone streets, browse for souvenirs and take snapshots of the lovely 18th-century buildings.

Your tour then concludes with drop-off in central London.

Please note: On busy days, this tour may run in reverse order and start with the visit to Bath.

A wonderful experience! The tour guide and bus driver were excellent. Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I enjoyed it all but Bath was amazing and lunch in the Medieval Village of Lacock was a special treat!

This is really great tour, the drive AND the guide were wonderful. However, I would not do it on a Sunday. By the time we got to the town of Bath, things started to close which was unfortunate because it was a really cute town. We also went in January so there was less daylight. Things may stay open later during the summer months. I loved the town of Lacock I wish we had more time there but I'm so glad I got to see it.

This was the best tour!!! Yes, we got off to an early start...but, we covered a lot of ground! Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, lunch at a local pub, then a quick visit to Bath. We could never have done all this on our own. The tour cost may seem pricey, but it was sure worth every penny!!! The best part of this tour was our guide, Steve with Premium Tours! He was knowledgeable, very patient, extremely informative, and funny too! I would 100 take this tour again from him or any other tours he may be guiding! Steve, you are the best!

We enjoyed this tour! We were early in the line for Windsor Castle tour which was an amazing historical place. Going to Stonehenge was a long journey but worth to see the great stones. Bath was a great quaint town. We were given 2 option by our amazing tour guide who looks like Rod Stewart. He's was knowledgeable and amiable. Our option was a walking tour of Bath or admission to the Roman Bath. We opted the walking tour. It was a bit tiring but it was informative. We passed by Jane Austin's Centre. Our supposed to lunch at Lacock became dinner due to the schedule. The dinner was average but you get to taste the local food and beer in George's Inn. Overall, this is a must tour!

If you are willing to devote one day and experience the beautiful English country side, this is a great package. From the rich English royalty experience of Windsor Castle, to picturesque Stonehenge, to experience authentic English food in the village of Lacock and finally walking around the pretty town of Bath, it takes you away from the hustle-bustle of London thru an enriching experience of England.
Windsor Castle - we had 1 hour to cover the castle and in case you want to cover all the sections, you might have to manage your pace as there is a lot to see at Windsor Castle. If you're in time, you might also be able to see the changing of guards which is a sight to watch. Make sure you have the audio guide.
Stonehenge - Well organized drop-off space from where you will be handed your tickets and a shuttle bus will take you to the actual spot. Make sure you have your audio guide.
Lacock - The lunch was setup in the oldest English Pub of Lacock. We were handed over menus in the coach to choose our lunch option so that it was prepared by the time we arrive at the pub. The food was quite tasty you'd need to pay for your own drinks.
Bath - This was more of a downtime i.e. you are free to choose whatever you wish to do during the dedicated time at Bath. It is a very pretty town so you may choose from either walking around and exploring or chill at a cafe or have the famous water at Bath.

Tips:
In case you are staying in Central London, inquire with the tour agency regarding the nearest pick-up point. In case you're checking in at he Victoria Coach Station, ensure you reach 15-minutes before your departure time.
Also, carry some snacks as the travel time between one place to another is 1-hour on an average.

Great trip. As many have mentioned, not enough time at Windsor Castle, but that's not the nature of the trip. It was a real thrill to go to Stonehenge on the Winter Solstice. Guide Lucy was informative and amusing, and did a good job keeping her heard of cats together...we moved very fast at Windsor Castle, which I with my cane don't like, but there was a good reason: she got us there absolutely first in line before opening, and we got through security in time to see the castle. Heartily recommended!
