London: Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath and Lacock Day Tour

1. London: Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath and Lacock Day Tour

Depart London for a full-day tour to some of the most historic attractions in the West of England, stopping at Windsor Castle, home to the English royals for more than 900 years. Perched high above the River Thames, the castle reveals royal stories from the days of William the Conqueror to the current Queen, making it the largest continuously occupied castle in the world. You will be among the first to marvel at the splendor of St. Georges Chapel, as well as the sumptuous State Apartments. Continue to Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain and learn the mysteries of the most famous prehistoric monument in the world. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years, but it still confounds historians and archaeologists to this day. Try to unlock some of its secrets for yourself at the new state-of-the-art Visitor Centre. Next, stop for a traditional pub lunch in the picturesque National Trust village of Lacock. Walk down cobbled streets lined with ancient cottages to see why it is often chosen for film shoots, including “Harry Potter.” Your lunch will be served in a 14th-century pub at the end of a short walking tour. The final stop of the day is the historic city of Bath, full of Georgian architecture in delightful crescents and terraces. Take a panoramic city tour, with free time to visit Bath Abbey and the romantic Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon, and to enjoy afternoon tea in the historic Pump Rooms, while being serenaded by a string quartet.

Discover some of the most stunning spots in the west of England on a brilliant day trip from London. Visit the Queen's favorite palace, investigate the mysteries of the standing stone circle at Stonehenge, take a walking tour of the city of Bath, and enjoy a photo stop at the picturesque village of Lacock! Head to Windsor Castle, perched proudly on a lush wooded hill overlooking the River Thames. Dating back to Norman times, the fortress features landscaped gardens and a turreted Round Tower. Peek inside the lavish State Apartments and see priceless works of art by Rembrandt and Da Vinci. Visit St. George’s Chapel to experience the atmospheric final resting place of Henry VIII. Be amazed by the Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, complete with working lifts, running water, electricity and miniature wine bottles!  Then, continue to Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain, and marvel at the view of the monolithic rocks as they rise up from the landscape. Theories abound about the stone circle and its former use, from the belief that is was a religious temple or astronomical clock, to the notion that it was a Bronze Age burial ground. Make up your own mind as you explore the unique landmark that has stumped the world for 5,000 years.  Travel through the quaint English village of Lacock, and admire its cobbled streets and historical buildings set against an unspoiled landscape. Get off the coach to stretch your legs during a quick photo stop. Then, drive to the historic city of Bath, beautifully situated on the banks of the River Avon. Take a walking tour to see the 15th century Bath Abbey, the romantic Pulteney Bridge (modelled on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence), the famous Georgian architecture and more.  Return to London and get dropped off at approximately 08:00 PM, subject to the traffic.

I absolutely love Get Your Guide. They do a good job finding experienced guides and providers. I was so impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the guide and driver. The tour started at the bus station and we traveled on a very comfortable coach. The guide constantly provided commentary and she made the locations come alive and added a lot of interesting stories and facts about the countryside.

Wonderful trip, Carol our guide gave just the right amount of information-we really enjoyed it! If I did it again, I would have eliminated the Lacock village portion. The Pub lunch was fun, but we didn’t really have time to see much of the little town. I would therefore preferred more time in Bath, it was magical and so beautiful all decorated for Christmas.

Vaughn and Tony made sure everyone was comfortable. Vaughn had many facts to share and some humour too. Face masks and hand sanitiser were available if you would need one.

Frank has a very nice voice his retelling of history is lovely to listen to. Our driver, Jim is very skilled and made for a pleasant ride.

Great tour and day. Frank / Andre were great. A long day but worth it to see as such as you do. Highly recommend.
