Tour description provided by Viator

Do something special on Christmas Eve and spend some time exploring the ancient sites of England. This day trip from London starts in the Royal Borough of Windsor. End your day discovering the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, where you’ll have a panoramic tour of some of the finest architectural sights in Europe, including Bath Abbey and the Royal Crescent.

Start your Christmas Eve tour from London in the charming Royal Borough of Windsor, where you’ll enjoy a walking tour. You’ll visit Windsor Castle, built high above the River Thames and home to the British royal family for more than 900 years. Back in your coach, you’ll continue to Stonehenge, which you’ll see from the road. Clouded in mystery, the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and an important prehistoric site. Beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last 100 years, the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids. No matter what you think about its origins, you don’t want to miss the chance to see it for yourself.Finally, you will travel to the city of Bath, adored for its Georgian architecture and known for its Roman Baths. Take a panoramic tour of its famous sights, including Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent, the Circus, the Assembly Rooms and the 18th-century Pulteney Bridge. Explore the Roman Baths, built around thermal springs that have been supplying water for more than 2,000 years. In Roman times, a great temple was built next to the sacred spring -- the waters were believed to have healing properties and attracted visitors from across the Roman Empire.Please note:Stonehenge is closed to visitors on Christmas Eve, but you will view it from the road.
