Description
Choose a morning or evening tour when booking, and then leave central London to visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge, free from its daytime crowds. Visitors arriving at the site during the peak daylight hours are not permitted to have direct access to the intriguing stone circle. However, your ‘private viewing’ tour enables your group to walk inside the roped-off circle, and admire the stones close up.

Hear the secrets and mysterious stories about Stonehenge from your expert guide, and experience the site at its atmospheric best! Depending on the time of year you visit, you may even be lucky enough to catch the sunset or sunrise; it’s sure to make your Stonehenge viewing an unforgettable experience. Read on for more details of each option; both tours finish with a drop-off at Victoria in central London.

Morning Tour:
After exploring the stones with your guide, travel onward to the nearby village of Lacock, a place often cited as one of England’s most picturesque villages. Hear of Lacock’s past as a Saxon dwelling, and learn about its use as a setting for many movie and TV programs including the adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Stretch your legs on a walk with your guide, and then head inside the George, a 14th-century pub, for breakfast (own expense).

Continue to Bath, a UNESCO-listed city in the county of Somerset. Enjoy a tour of the Roman Baths, visit Bath Abbey, and learn some more about Jane Austen, who was born in the city. If you wish, enjoy a short walking tour to see where the legendary novelist Charles Dickens lived and worked as a young man, and sample fresh cheese from a local dairy. Alternatively, make the most of some free time to explore independently.

Evening Tour:
From London, travel first to the city of Bath to explore the Roman Baths and visit Bath Abbey, as described for the Morning Tour. Continue to Lacock for a walk around the picturesque village, and then enjoy dinner at the George pub (own expense). Last, but not least, travel to Stonehenge for your tour of the stones when the day-trippers have left the site.

This was amazing and totally worth going inside the circle. Highly recommend it to anyone looking to literally stand in history!

The morning tour was worth every penny! The tour guide was very informative. Could have used more info on Stonehenge- but we got great pics! Breakfast was well organized and delicious. We did not realize what a great town Bath was.

Awesome day trip. Definitely worth the money and early rise time to have an hour at Stonehenge before it opened and the crowds came. You really do get to walk in the inner circle. With the rising sun and the mist I got some beautiful pictures. Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and breakfast was quite tasty and filling. We had about two-ish hours at Bath but after the tour through the Roman baths I had about an hour to explore. Would definitely recommend, thank you!

Absolutely incredible tour! Going inside the circle of Stonehenge is much recommended, compared to the basic. To stand next to something that is Thousands of years old is an amazing feeling. If you did the basic you just walk around them at a distance. I did the AM in tour and it is an early pick up. Around 5 am or so, because you go there before its open to the public. To see it with all the mist around was a highlight of my life. Only your tour group will be in the Circle. Be warned this sells out fast. Book it months in advance. Bath and Lacock are just the icing on the cake. You get breakfast in Lacock and then the afternoon in Bath. Bath is an amazing roman city. It be worth vising a lone, but it was great afternoon tour for me. Loved it.

This tour was the cherry on top of our amazing London experience. Worth every penny we paid. Our tour guide David and driver were absolutely awesome, so kind and knowledgeable. I did this tour in the end of March 2017 - we started at the City of Bath - they had our tickets for the Roman Baths ready to go and were able to get right in because we were in a group. We were free to explore the Roman Baths at our leisure and then do a little exploring in the City of Bath - I wish we could have spent a little more time in Bath - but we had a schedule to keep up with - totally understandable. After bath we went to Stonehenge and went right up to the stones, beyond the ropes - right inside the circle! Our guide David had so much information to provide - it really enhanced the experience. We finished in the city of Lacock and had a delicious English dinner at the George Inn. It was a long but very fun day!! Would totally recommend this tour if you have a day out of your London itinerary.

Excellent tour. Being able to experience Stonehenge from the inner circle was magical. We even got a little snow! Lacock was the perfect stop for a nice breakfast and some time to see the town. Bath was all decked out for the holidays and the Christmas Markets were a nice bonus

This was an incredible experience, well worth the early start. Our guide Lucy and driver Martin were great and provided a day full of memories. Tip: dress warmly.

One of the most amazing experiences of my life. Mists, quiet surroundings, only a handful of people wandering through the stones with you. Completely worth the extra dough! We had a great driver and guide, they were a hoot. When the driver says he doesn't need a rear camera because he reverse by touch...too funny. Bath is beautiful but Stonehenge takes the cake in terms of experiences. Enjoy!
