Stonehenge Tours From London

A Wide Range Of Tours From London Every Day Of The Year Including Inner Circle Tours


Stonehenge

The world famous Stonehenge is situated around 90 miles (145 kms) west of Central London. Taking into consideration traffic in London its best part of a 2 hour journey for a tour bus. If there is one thing you are not short of is choice in tours that go to Stonehenge.


Stonehenge is isolated and not served by public transport. If you just want to see Stonehenge its both quicker and cheaper to take a tour bus than travel independently.

Stonehenge & Bath Tours

For many, 90 minutes at Bath on a tour visiting also Windsor and Stonehenge is not long enough. Missing out Windsor results in you getting a full 3 hours in Bath. The biggest single attraction in Bath are the Roman Baths, but for many their priorities for sightseeing in Bath lie elsewhere and the Roman Baths do not figure in their plans.

The good news is that there is a tour for either requirement, one tour that includes admission to the Roman Baths, one that doesn't.
