What You Can Expect

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

Visit the magnificent Windsor Castle

After pickup from your central London hotel or a central 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.

I had a good day with this tour. Magnus was an excellent tour guide, although older his commentaries were very current and informative, and delivered in a lighter way. He and his driver had to do an overtime for the group and they didnt mind at all. For that I gave a good tip and everyone did I think bec everyone notice that. The village of Lacock is nice and full of off beaten, Even in Bath, Magnus took effort for us to see whats in the Romans Bath even if no one wanted to pay the entrance fee, he gave ample time for each place, it was enough, we started early at 800AM and ended at 9PM. I mean thats a long day and they didnt mind. Premium Tours are better than Evans Evans in terms of coach comfort too.

It's a fast paced day, but totally worth it! We had such an amazing tour guide Dan and driver Leo, made our whole tour experience wonderful! The town of Lacock was totally worth seeing, wish we could've spent the whole day there such a charming escape into another world. Would definitely recommend this tour if you want to hit the highlights in a day.

This tour is absolutely worth it! If you want to see Stonehenge, this is the way to see it. Cause if you drive out to see Stonehenge on its own, after you get to there in about 15 minutes youre like what do I do next? So to have other things lined up on the agenda throughout the day i.e. a tour like this makes it worth it. If you are trying to decide whether or not to do this tour, DO IT! The tour guide was so informed and great at her job. She told us fascinating stories, and things we wouldnt have known otherwise visiting these places. Its great cause you get a taste of everything. Windsor Castle was absolutely breathtaking. You get to take a tour of the castle inside and out. Bath is such a cool city. You have the Roman history as well as shops on shops on shops. But by far my favorite part of this tour was the lunch in the medieval village of Lacock. The food was great, the people, the beer! Its a quaint village steeped in history and also the filming place of some Harry Potter scenes. But it was such a great time. Was very happy with this tour and Id do it again in a heartbeat.

Arriving from Calgary, Alberta Canada, this was an excellent way to tour these sites as a future platform for another visit. We had a flavour of each site, ALL were amazing, and provided us with ideas for how we'd tour them again. Windsor Castle had excellent timing, as we didn't wait in a long line to get in, and ended with the changing of the guards. The music was beautiful. The pub in Lacock is a must see too. The short time there to have lunch and see the small village was perfect, and to say we'd eaten at a 14th Century pub was just cool. We had enough time in Bath to briefly walk around, grab a snack and sit to enjoy the town square. Stonehenge too was amazing. We would tour all of these sites again, on our own schedule, using this tour as our platform to plan out the activities. The guide was excellent at providing history the entire way. Something our 14 yr old daughter loved too.
If you've never been, this is the way to see these sites. Next time, we would spend a night in Windsor, eat the the Lacock pub again, because it was just so cool and spend a few days in Bath to see the Roman Bath Museums. I would also pack a day picnic in Stonehenge towards the evening to sit and enjoy the peace and serenity around it, probably around sunset. It was magical. Thank you.

Stonehenge and Windsor Castle were great. We had to pay for the entrance to the Roman Bath which I thought was not worth the money. Our guide was very knowledgeable a great asset to the trip. We also stopped for lunch is Lacock. This was a delightful village some of Downton Abbey and Harry Potter were filmed here.

Definitely recommend this tour, it was excellent! Our tour guide Dan was very knowledgeable. A very long and busy day, but well worth it in the end with my personal highlight being the Roman Baths. Tickets to the baths not included in this tour but you can buy them on the day at the door.
