What To Expect

Select a morning or evening tour when you book. Then, depart central London by comfortable, air-conditioned coach and begin your tour to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stonehenge.

Visitors who arrive at the site during main daylight hours are only allowed to stroll the perimeter pathway around the monument, a route roped off from the stone circle. However, this ‘private viewing’ tour lets your group enter the roped-off circle of stones to see the monolithic blocks at truly close quarters.

Hear the fascinating facts and mysteries that surround the monument from your expert guide, and by enjoying the rarified atmosphere of the inner circle, experience the site at its magical best! With luck, and depending on the season, you may even visit during a sunrise or sunset, making the occasion extra special. See below for the morning or evening itinerary. Both tours conclude with a drop-off in central London.

Morning Tour: After seeing Stonehenge, continue to nearby Lacock: a quaint village dating to the 13th century. Stretch your legs on a guided walk around the pretty lanes, and see some of the locations used in the movie 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,' and a TV adaptation of 18th-century writer Jane Austen’s 'Pride and Prejudice.' Afterward, savor a hearty breakfast (own expense) at The George Inn, Lacock’s 14th-century pub, before venturing to the beautiful, UNESCO-listed city of Bath, famous for its Roman spa and Georgian architecture. Tour the well-preserved Roman Baths, built over natural hot springs; see Bath Abbey, and learn about Jane Austen’s connections to the city. If you wish, follow your guide to see where 19th-century author, Charles Dickens, once lived, and call at a dairy to taste some local cheese. Alternatively, use some free time to perhaps shop for gifts or view Bath’s highlights on your own.

Evening Tour: Leave London for Bath and visit the stunning Roman Baths and Bath Abbey, as set out in the morning itinerary. Then, drive on to postcard-worthy Lacock to amble around its historical streets. Later, sit down to dinner (own expense) at The George Inn, before journeying to Stonehenge for your ‘private viewing,’ after the daytime visitors have left.

Bath Abbey (Pass By)

Take a photo stop or visit Bath Abbey

The Roman Baths

Visit the magnificent Roman Baths (entry included if upgrade option selected) , where over one million litres of boiling water still burst free from the hot springs every day.

The experience was amazing! Our start time was 5:30am and we arrived at 5:10. Were greeted by your guide, Frank, who was amazing! We left a little late waiting for a person to arrive but they never showed up. Our driver was Ricardo who was also very amazing and ensured we arrived places on time and without slamming breaks or driving crazy. Frank is by far the best guide I have ever experienced. He made us laugh and really taught us a lot.
Maria_G, Mar 2023
Frank, the tour guide, is so funny and knowledgeable. The whole experience is worth it. The only think I would change is the option to go to Wiltshire castle.
Great Tour
Frank_D, Mar 2023
My grandson(Ryan age 21) and I did the tour and it was terrific.We met Andrew in the right time and place and he turned out to be great. Lots of stories and jokes and good explanations for everything. Henry VIII was our driver and was terrific, especially with all the rain we had. We did Bath(not raining yet) and it was really good. We wished we had a little more time. We next went to Stonehenge and thats when the rain started and wind also. It was pretty cold, but we were pretty well prepared and we loved it. Noone was there except for a Stonehenge Guide, Chris, who was outstanding and so knowledgeable. It was great without all the people around. We then went to Lacock and ate at the King George's Inn (1361). The food was good, atmosphere was good and the Inn was wonderful. Unfortuately it was pourin and we didn't see much of the town as it was nicer to have another beer. The town was where Harry Potter was filmed. It was still a great day for us.
A Fantastic Tour
Alan_S, Mar 2023
A fantastic tour. The tour guide was amazing and went above and beyond what we expected. Everything was as promised.
Stonehenge makes the tour worth the big $
Joel_B, Mar 2023
I’m glad we took the late morning tour as the Underground strike made getting around London dicey. Pepe, the tour guide was great, knowledgeable, full of anecdotes and quite humorous. The time in Bath was far too short to even finish half the recorded tour. I wish they’d ditch Laycock with cold, mediocre dinner and warm house beer and use that time at Bath. I’m sure that town is interesting in sunlight but it was pitch dark and even though the staff was nice, the poor dinner made me concerned about future food poisoning. Must be a reason, financial or crowd control, why that isn’t done. As for Stonehenge, having done it now, the only way to see the stones is from the circle. It’s powerful, interesting and gives you an absolute appreciation for the society(s) that took hundreds of years 5000 years ago to erect this thing, likely to worship the equinoxes. The person-hours it took is staggering and I think looking at it from the roped off path would leave one saying “meh, big rocks”. Definitely book the inner circle tour and Pepe is a great guide. I’d give it a 5 except for the Bath/Laycock thing.
Cold but Magical
Genevieve_M, Mar 2023
Really lovely tour - Was painful to get up so early but it was worth it! We took the morning tour in the hopes of less people and there were only like 20 of us. We had Stonehenge all to ourselves as you go before the actual place opens. Our guide was this lovely old lady who gave such cool facts during the bus segments and knew so many interesting facts that the time driving to each location flew by! You get the option to stay in the middle of the stones and listen to the guide or wander - We did a bit of both and as long as you play your cards right it was easy to get photos of no people. Not to mention they pause initially so everyone can get a photo of the structure before going in! Roman baths was lovely - Super interesting Lancock was a super sweet place - I recommend skipping the optional pub meal and going to the local bakery for a pasty - Its closer to Cornwall so they were really good :) Few things to keep in mind: - The later you go on the sunrise tour the earlier the sun rise is so you may miss it (but the light is then perfect for people pictures so eh) - Its bloody cold and there's no defence from the wind up there haha - Roman baths is an audio tour and depending on how long you take can take up all your time in bath (this is also allocated lunch time) Overall super recommend, its exxy but when else would you be able to walk through actual history like that
Wonderful day!
Angie_G, Mar 2023
Frank was lovely. Knowledgeable, thoughtful and fun! Richard got us there and back safely in the rain and horrific winds. Extra credit for that! We would book again in a heartbeat.
An amazing experience—highly recommend
James_S, Mar 2023
The sights were lovely and the access at Stonehenge was amazing. Everything went completely to plan, and Andrew (our guide) and Steven (our driver) we’re experts. I would absolutely recommend!
Because it was snowing,...

Because it was snowing, we did not get to go to the inner circle, which was very sad. But Andrew, our tour guide was amazing. He made the whole trip fun and entertaining.
Fabulous Experience
Ashika_S, Mar 2023
Absolutely mesmerising experience to be part of the early morning inner access trip to Stonehenge. The world was still and the stones were magnificent. The place has an air of mystery about it. Also enjoyed visiting the town of Lacock and sampling the local bakery goods. The town takes you back in time. The city of Bath was enjoyable where I tasted Lady Lunn's buns and explored the city. Had a fabulous tour guide throughout the trip (sorry cant remember her name) !!
Wonderful experience
Jennifer_H, Feb 2023
Our guide was excellent and Paul the driver got us there safe and quickly. This tour is amazing for anyone wanting the VIP access to the inner circle of Stonehenge. Lacock is beautiful but the £10.50 for the breakfast at the George isn’t worth it. Bath is beautiful and definitely worth seeing. This tour is an absolute must to see quite a few things in 12 hours. Warning: it’s suuuuuper cold in the morning. Bundle up and bring scarves and hats and your thickest jacket.
Stonehenge /Lacock/Bath
Steven_M, Feb 2023
This is the second time I have taken this tour and it was enjoyable both times. It is priceless being able to go into the stone circle and not have to fight the crowds. Lacock and Bath were charming and our guide Pepe was knowledgeable and entertaining. Would recommend this tour and would do it again if back in the UK.
Don’t do any other Stonehenge tour. This is the one!
Bryan_s, Feb 2023
If you’re doing a tour to Stonehenge, this needs to be the one you do. We happened to stumble across this tour in our searches and saw the inner circle access and it ended up being one of the highlights of our whole trip. Being able to be right there next to the stones and get up close was amazing. We had fantastic tour guides and the city of Bath and the Roman bath house we just a cherry on the top of an already great tour. I highly recommend this to everyone going to visit Stonehenge.
Best tour!
Kelsey_C, Feb 2023
Absolutely incredible experience. Frank our tour guide was very detailed and knowledgeable about England history and Stonehenge history
Stonehenge inner circle was extraordinary
Paula_R, Feb 2023
Frank the tour guide was knowledgeable and hilarious. It was an extraordinary experience that I think anyone would enjoy. Getting up early was tough but being in the middle of Stonehenge was fantastic! The rest of the trip was so delightful. Everyone in the family enjoyed this experience greatly. We had Chris as our storyteller guide at Stonehenge. He could answer all of our questions. The entire experience was a once in a lifetime event.
It's a lot.
Robert_H, Jan 2023
It was more than I bargained for, especially the amount of exercise I got. It's a large trip, wish I was better prepared for it.
What a Great Day!!!!
Todd_B, Jan 2023
Stonehenge: Epic!!! Bath: Quaint Frank, our guide was amazing. He was kind, very informative, dry sense of humor, joked back and forth with we Americans, all in great fun. Richard, our driver…perfect. Right on time leaving and getting back. Perfection.
Amazing trip. Worth the...
MuhammadSohaib_A, Dec 2022
Amazing trip. Worth the extra cost. The inner circle access is totally worth it anf it is really good for the sunset
The tour to do!
Luis_R, Dec 2022
This is the way to see Stonehenge. The experience of being up close and inside it is really special. Just looking from the outside would have not have been same. Our Tour Guide was very nice, knowledgeable and organized. Transportation was easy and clean. The other features Bath and Lacock were very neat as well, but the star is going inside Stonehenge.
The best tour out there
SYDNEE_D, Oct 2022
This was the most incredible experience. We had the most beautiful weather at Stonehenge. My sister recommended this trip because she had done it and the fact that you get to be inside the ropes of Stonehenge is remarkable! I can’t remember my tour guide’s name but he was absolutely wonder. So friendly and so knowledgeable! THIS IS A MUST TOUR!!!
