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.

An optional walking tour allows you to see where writer Charles Dickens once lived and worked, and to sample some of the delicious local cheeses. From there continue to the village of Lacock, another historic site dating back to Saxon times. This scenic village has been the site of several major films and productions, with parts of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone filmed here. Take your time to look around the village, before stopping for an early evening meal in one of England’s oldest pubs, The George Inn, built in 1361.

Your guide will discuss the history of this 5,000 year old site, the most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and explain the many mysterious theories about how exactly it was built. Away from the crowds, marvel at this ancient construction and see for yourself why it is one of the most visited sites in the world, before boarding your coach and returning to London.

What people are saying about South West England

Awesome inner circle private access with group of 50.

This tour was awesome however note that you do not get to Stonehenge for the sunrise. Meeting time was 5am and it was about an hour and half - two hour drive. So the sun was already up. Either way this was a great tour because you got inner circle access to be amongst the stone (they are very very strict about NOT touching the stones and have security to make sure if it). Lucy our tour guide was amazingly knowledgeable and a powerful leader with a 50 person group. She ensured we had plenty of potty breaks and ran her tour seamlessly in partnership with the bus driver Julio.

Stonehenge

The whole tour was great. It is highly recommend that if you go to Stonehenge you do a tour that includes going into the circle. There are things to see there that you can't from outside. The Sunset tour had 52 people and we broke into 2 groups, each spending a half hour inside the circle.

awesome everyone should take a private tour

We had a great guide and it was awesome that only our bus group were allowed to walk around. Well worth the price. Josie Q

The places are of extraordinary interest and beauty. In particular our guide, Frank, was perfect.
