London – Stonehenge – Bath – London
Summary of The Day: We’ll depart London and head to the most famous prehistoric monument in the world: Stonehenge. Now accorded a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Stonehenge stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to mention public debate, ever since. What was this vast collection of stones intended for? Was it observatory of the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery? Who were the people who carried and carved these 40 ton rocks? Come and unlock the secrets for yourself and marvel at this remarkable and mysterious feat of ancient engineering and design.
Fast track entrance to the site is included in the price! Your guide will walk you right to the front of the line! And we’re in no hurry. There will be plenty of time to explore the site, take photos and buy souvenirs before rejoining the coach and heading off to Bath.
Next, we head to Bath, arriving just in time for lunch. With fabulous restaurants, tea houses, sandwich and coffee shops, not to mention all the classic British pubs, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Bath is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents, terraces and architecture. Following our scenic drive into the heart of the city, there will be plenty of time to explore at your leisure. You could visit the Roman Baths that were built nearly 2,000 years ago or see Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge overlooking the river Avon cascading over the weir. Then there is the Jane Austen Centre and the elegant Assembly Rooms built in 1771. And you can shop, explore and take afternoon tea in the Pump Room while listening to the live classical music. With so much to see and do, you’ll be glad that you have so much free time.
Tips: Tour departs promptly at 8:15am Victoria Coach Station gate 15 and will conclude with a drop-off in central London approximately at 7:30pm
