From London: Stonehenge, Bath & Lacock Full-Day Sunrise Tour

1. From London: Stonehenge, Bath & Lacock Full-Day Sunrise Tour

See the remarkable prehistoric monument of Stonehenge at sunrise on a full-day tour from London. Enjoy these jaw-dropping monoliths with a unique viewing experience that guarantees direct access to the stones, unavailable to members of the general public. Depart the city at the crack of dawn, and escape the hustle and bustle of the “Big Smoke” as you travel west by air-conditioned coach. Upon arrival at Stonehenge, you will have privileged access to the inner stone circle to watch a dramatic sunrise before the day time crowds arrive. Built nearly 5,000 years ago, Stonehenge is one of the most popular prehistoric monuments in the world. Enjoy a private viewing of the mysterious monoliths as you stand by the mighty sarsen rock. Your guide will entertain you with stories about the site, and point out the altar, slaughter and heel stones, where the sun rises on the summer solstice. Continue to the small village of Lacock, founded in the Saxon era. Many of the buildings formed part of an extensive monastery complex. Now owned by the National Trust, the pretty village was the setting for Jane Austen's “Pride and Prejudice” and “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.” There will be time for a delightful walk, before enjoying breakfast in a classic English pub. Next, go to the Roman city of Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian architecture at sites such as the Royal Crescent and Circus. Marvel at the city’s beautifully proportioned streets, and see the much-photographed Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon. End at the Roman Baths, the best preserved Roman spa from the ancient world. Dating back to AD 60, the Baths are still fed by the hot springs and limestone aquifers of the Mendip Hills. The museum houses artifacts from the Roman period, including objects and offerings thrown into the Sacred Spring.

What people are saying about South West England

Such a lovely day. The tour guide was so nice and well informed. Lots of free time built in, to explore on your own if you desire. We didn’t see sunrise at Stonehenge (arrived well after), but did have private access and could walk among the ruins. It allowed for a beautiful solo meditation. Pack your swimsuit and extra money if you want to go to the private hotel hot springs while in Bath. We chose to do that rather than site see. Overall a beautiful tour and well worth the early hour.

Great tour with knowledgeable guide. To actually see the sunrise as described one would have to leave 2h earlier at this time of the year:(March). Only our group was at Stonehenge so it was great for the pictures.

Early start to the day, but well with it!!! I have been to Stonehenge, but wasn’t able to walk next to stones. The archeologist taught our group tons more than on my previous trip!

My tour guide Carol was fantastic. I am so glad I took this trip to Stonehenge. Transportation on the bus was great, and I did not feel rushed at Stonehenge or Bath.

Really great tour, and the experience of having Stonehenge to a small group for a while is pretty amazing! Frank is a great guide, and very engaging
