PRIVATE BATH-STONEHENGE TOUR – TYPICAL ITINERARY
Your driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at the specified time. We recommend 8am. After a fast-route from London, your Private Bath-Stonehenge Tour takes us to the ‘West Country’ where we visit not one, but two World Heritage sites, each with their fair share of history and mystery.
CITY OF BATH
This famous city is entirely carved out of a local honey-coloured stone reflecting architectural achievements past and present. Bath was at the heart of the Georgian social scene, and fans of contemporary novelist Jane Austen will discover how much of her writing was inspired here.
Bath is renowned for its naturally occurring mineral waters, the only hot water springs in the country (we will try some). The Romans took advantage of the springs and made their sandal-print on history here, and we take a guided tour of the stunning bath house unearthed at the end of the 19th century.
Your driver-guide will suggest appropriate lunch options on the day. Perhaps a village tea-room, riverside restaurant or traditional pub. Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch or just grab a sandwich. It’s your tour, it’s your choice. (Note: Private Bath-Stonehenge Tour price does not include food or refreshments).
After a pleasant drive through the picturesque Wessex countryside, we embark on a personally guided tour of the mysterious World Heritage site of Stonehenge, an ancient stone structure older than the pyramids of Egypt, and a rare surviving monument of the pre-historic world.
Some have a deep fascination with this place, and wonder about its meaning. Those not so swayed by the stones’ magical charms are left pondering the biggest mystery of all – how on Earth did they get there? As we return from Stonehenge, we reflect on these and other mysteries which surround the place.
Note: We recommend tickets for the Private Bath-Stonehenge Tour are bought in advance to avoid lines. We can book them for you if you wish.
