Tour Itinerary:

The Lacock, Bath & Stonehenge tour from London is a delightful tour with full visits to two World Heritage Sites, plus some of the best of the English countryside where we take advantage of the small bus to go where the big buses cannot. All in all a varied and rewarding day.

The first leg out of London is the longest of the day. During that time the size of the group should mean you have got to know your guide and are on first name terms.


Taking the old coaching road to Bath, we head into the golden stone villages of the Cotswold and Mendip hills. The first stop is Lacock, a medieval village gem and setting for many well known films and tv series, where you can enjoy a walking tour. During our journey to Georgian Bath, only 30 minutes away, your guide will give you a "best of Bath" orientation tour in the bus, so you are familiar with some of the history, before we visit the Roman Baths. You can pick up some lunch in Bath before we prepare for our next leg of the journey, a scenic hour's drive to Stonehenge, our last stop of the day.

The Small Group Tour Difference

International Friends Small Group Tour Bus

Small Group Tour Bus

On this tour you will be travelling with no more than 16 other people - guaranteed! Our purpose-built minibuses have large windows, good air circulation and clear PA systems so that your professional guide can escort you comfortably through our wonderful countryside.


The small group size means you are not subjected to long hotel pick-up journeys around London and as a small group the guide can offer a more personalised guiding service. So don't hang back, ask your questions and you'll be helping the guide tune their commentaries to the interest of the group on board that day, every group is different!


Another advantage of a small bus is we can go places the big tours cannot and wherever possible we'll head off down a country lane to to show some hidden gem.

 

Lacock, Bath & Stonehenge Tour - What To Expect

Lacock

The Roman Baths at Bath

The Roman Baths at Bath

Our first stop will be in Lacock, a perfectly preserved village, now owned by the National Trust and often used as a backdrop to such films as the Cranford Chronicles, Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter. Lacock is truly a step back in time; whitewashed and half timbered dwellings mix in with stone and brick cottages, dating from the 15th to the 18th-century. After a guided walking tour there will be free time to explore and take morning coffee before we continue towards the Avon valley and the city of Bath.

Bath

It is just 30 minutes' drive from Lacock to to the golden limestone-clad city of Bath. People have been coming to Bath for centuries owing to the hot springs that bubble up to the surface at several locations in the city. At a constant temperature of 46.5C, the only hot springs in the country, the Romans enjoyed this place when they settled here almost 2,000 years ago, naming the resort Aqua Sulis.


The city was beautifully re-invented in the 18th century when it became the fashionable place to see and be seen. Elegant crescents, squares and terraces were built as the rich and famous travelled from London for "the season" to relieve themselves of rheumatic diseases, stiffness of the joints and gout.


This fully guided tour includes admission to the Roman Baths museum and a tour of the highlights of Georgian Bath, including the Royal Crescent, Royal Circus and the Assembly Rooms.

Stonehenge

After lunch and free time we meet up again and travel through mysterious Wessex, taking the back roads, through villages of flintstone and thatch and onwards to Salisbury Plain and the enigmatic circle of Stonehenge.

Stonehenge

 

The World Heritage Site, of Stonehenge is an ancient neolithic site, over 5000 years' old. Through your audioguide (in ten different languages), you will learn of the people that constructed Stonehenge and the possible methods they used, how far the stones were moved to get them here, the purpose of the circle and how many questions still remain unanswered.

 

You will see the different stones, the heel stone, and the slaughter stone, with their various myths and legends, smaller bluestones (still weighing up to four tons) and the megaliths themselves, the sarsens. You will get to see the long path, with raised banks and ditches, known as the 'avenue'; a processional route stretching about three miles or two kilometres, marking the the entrance to Stonehenge. From this point you can learn about how our ancestors understood the turning of the year, and the importance of aligning with the sun.

 

The visitor centre, a mile from the stones themselves, is well worth finding time to see. It displays nearly 250 archaeological treasures, which were used or buried at Stonehenge as well a regularly changing programme of special exhibitions. In addition, reconstructed neolithic houses outside the visitor centre, provide living history with regular demonstrations of ancient domestic skills such as flint knapping, and rope making.

 

It is late afternoon when we leave Stonehenge for the almost two hour journey back to London.
