Private Tour: Stonehenge, Bath and Lacock Day Trip from London information and booking
Tour description provided by Viator
Leave London with a private driver and guide, and spend a day exploring Stonehenge, Lacock and the Somerset city of Bath! While enjoying personalized commentary that’s tailored to your interests, wander around the UNESCO-listed stone circle at Stonehenge, and then visit the village of Lacock to see Harry Potter film locations and savor lunch in a 14th-century inn. Head to Bath later, and discover the Royal Crescent, Pulteney Bridge and more before returning to London. All entrance fees, activities and meals are at your own expense.
Start with a pickup from your central London hotel, and relax in the comfort of your private vehicle. As your driver takes care of the route and driving, chat with your guide about your action-packed day ahead. If there are sights included in your itinerary that are of particular interest to you, feel free to ask your guide as many questions about them as you wish. The beauty of having a private guide is that your commentary is personalized to the things you want to know!
Your first stop is Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the world’s most famous prehistoric landmarks. Resonating with intrigue, the stone circle is believed to date back around 5,000 years old and built from a rare Welsh stone at a time when transporting heavy rocks would have been impossible. Head straight to the stones to stroll around with your guide and pose for photos. The circle is roped off from the crowds for preservation, but a footpath around the outside of the stones lends itself to clear and close-up views.
Continue to nearby Lacock, a picturesque village that dates back to the Saxon era. Enjoy a walking tour with your guide, and see sites used as filming locations in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as well as the TV adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The village is also home to the 14th-century George Inn: your lunch venue. Enjoy traditional British food and drinks (own expense) during a leisurely meal with your guide.
Then, travel to Bath in Somerset to enjoy your afternoon. Named and famed for its historical hot springs, the elegant city has been a popular destination since Roman times. Follow your guide on a walking tour around the center, and see the UNESCO-listed Roman Baths that were built some 2,000 years ago, as well as the famous Royal Crescent, Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey — all built in creamy Somerset stone.
If time permits, enjoy some time to yourself in Bath and scout out the antique shops, independent boutiques and tearooms that make the city such as popular place to visit. In the late afternoon, travel back to the capital, and finish your day trip with a hotel drop-off.
