Overview

Avoid the hassle of renting a car to see rural England’s highlights with help from this full-day tour which includes round-trip transport from London. Choose from two options to find what best suits your preferences, and travel by air-conditioned coach bus with onboard Wi-Fi. You can either combine a visit to Stonehenge with a pub lunch in Lacock and a walking tour of Windsor, or opt to visit both Windsor Castle and Stonehenge with a break for a traditional English pub lunch. Both options also pass by the city of Bath, hometown of Jane Austen.
  • Full-day tour from London to rural England
  • Visit Stonehenge with a guide
  • Sit down for lunch (or dinner) at a traditional English pub
  • Enjoy a coach tour of the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, home of the famous author Jane Austen
  • Go for a walking tour of Windsor or visit Windsor Castle (depending on selection chosen)

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

You get to see all the classic sites outside London on this full-day journey. Extra perk: the homespun lunch at an old pub in the English village of Lacock.
After pickup from the central London meeting point, travel by air-conditioned coach to your first stop, Windsor. Here, you’ll either visit Windsor Castle or go on a walking tour of the city, depending on your tour option chosen.

Afterward, continue by coach bus 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: The order of the visit may change and lunch may be replaced by supper.

This was our first day trip during our 3 week European adventure, so I may be slightly biased. We stopped at Windsor and had a great time seeing the Castle and the church there. Our next stop was Bath. Our guide accidently gave us too much time here, so our lunch in Lacock was cut short.

Bath was nice. We got some snacks and rode a carriage around the town. We didnt visit the Roman baths because Rome was literally our next stop in our European adventure.

Lunch was very rushed. We literally got off the bus, were told we could snap a very quick picture of the Harry Potter house and were off to lunch. Lunch was like a food eating contest. AND then we were told that we may not make it to Stonehenge before it closed.

Thankfully we did make it Stonehenge and were able to see everything before getting back on the bus, back to London.

Im glad we went on this day trip. I am sooo glad that I got to see Stonehenge and Windsor Castle. Those were the highlights for me. I just wish our guide had managed our time a little better.

Great tour. Daniel and Steven where great. Learned a lot about London. Coach was comfortable. My only complaint is I felt rushed. But I guess to get everything in we had to rush.. lunch at lacock was decent. The little tour around the block was great. Stevenew a lot and enjoyed hearing about the history.

It was nice to see several different places, but was tough to spent such a short time in each location.

We had such a great time! It is a long day but Steve and Eddie made the time super enjoyable. Got to see so many amazing things. I highly recommend this tour.

To start, Lucy and Malcolm (our guide and Gentleman driver) were excellent guides and hosts. Be aware this is a whirlwind day tour, lots of walking, and very little time in each place, but knowing that going in, this was a great tour and we had a wonderful day. Our guides knew their business and were able to maximize our time at each location. This trip was well worth it. We were able to see Windsor Castle, Bath, eat in an a very old pub (food filled a whole, but bonus was it was in a town that parts of the Harry Potter movies were filmed in)), and of course Stonehenge, which was worth the whole trip by itself. Lucy was informatiive and provided excellent background on each place. She also ensured we were in the right places at the right times (which was helpful given we had limited time at each location). Malcolm was the consummate Gentleman driver and skillfully got us where we needed to be, which was no small feat considering the roads, traffic and busy locations we went to. You could spend a day or more in each location, but I guess that's the point. We only had 1 day and wanted to see Stonehenge, but didn't think a whole day at Stonehenge was optimal. Stonehenge is amazing and a must see, but a whole day would be too much for most people. The balance here was a wonderful taste of each, which know provides the incentive to return to the ones we want to spend more time at. Bath and Windsor are each full day or longer places to visit. Lacock was the perfect amount of time. Stonehenge is, well, Stonehenge. Be on time (all day by the way-as I said it was whirlwind), wear comfortable shoes, bring some snacks and water and have fun! When you go to Windsor, hit the State Rooms first (farthest away from where to need to be) which will give you time to see the Cathedral as well, you have time if you don't dawdle, This get you outside the walls with time to grab a bite if you like and do some shopping. Bath you have several options, we opted to shop for our grand daughters, so can't give you much more advice on visiting the site there. LaCock is small, so you can eat, walk the town and see the Church and the HP locations, which leaves plenty of time for Stonehenge. Wonderful long day that will remain in our memories. Not mandatory, but there is a guide tipping jar at the front of the bus that goes to the guide and the driver. Be generous if you feel they did a good job. We did and were. Much deserved for such a fast-paced, well thought out and outstanding tour.

Tour guide, Lucy, was excellent and enjoyed the day trip. Had limited time at Bath and felt it was too ambitious to include it with the other sites.

Steve Maynard was AWESOME! We had a great time and Steve kept us going on a long day of adventure. Steve is extremely passionate about his work and his expertise is not comparable to any other guide we have ever had. We enjoyed every part of the tour, but the stop in Lacock was the highlight for us, lunch was a little rushed, wished we could have had more time there. I don't know how Eddie keeps the bus on the road, but he did an awesome job. The day we spent on this tour was one of our best days in London.

Probably a good solution to see a few sites in one day. Though the lunch option sounds like a great idea it is not the experience you expect. U dont see much of the village and the food is neither tasty nor enough. The good thing is that you can see Windsor and Stonehenge un 1 day

This was one of the best things we did as a family while in the London area. Just wished we had more time in Bath, doesnt everyone?
