Take a guided tour from the city of Bath to Stonehenge and explore an area that has fascinated millions for generations and considered a national treasure!. See iconic Stonehenge and feel its power on a day trip from Bath. Discover the mystery of the pre-historic monument as you learn about the many theories explaining its origins and purpose.
This is a very small and special tour, giving you access to the stones after the monument has closed. You chance to walk within these magnificent stone circles an experience that few people share. Many companies provide sightseeing trips to Stonehenge, however we thought we would organise something a little different and truly memorable. Then we’ll be stopping at a 17th century thatched coaching inn where we can have a relaxing supper. It was mentioned in Pickwick Papers and frequented by Charles Dickens.
“Unique to this Stonehenge guided tour is the sense of being in an ancient and sacred place; the combination of the natural and historic sights is simply spectacular.”
Lacock National Trust Village
This picturesque village consists of properties dating from the 13th to the 18th centuries. It was once a prosperous woollen town, but now it seems like a village trapped in time. There has been no major building here in the last 200 years so you really feel as if you’re stepping back into a long forgotten era.
If you’re interested in film locations Lacock has been used many times. It became the town of Meriton in the BBC production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The Abbey and some of the houses were also used in the filming of the first two Harry Potter movies.
We drive through the beautiful Wiltshire countryside to Stonehenge, arriving when all the crowds have gone and the sun is going down. This amazing monument was first mentioned as one of the wonders of Britain only seventy years after the Norman Conquest. Please note that the visitor centre is not open during our visit.
SUPPER AT A HISTORICAL INN
During this tour we will be stopping at an old coaching Inn. A place visited by Charles Dickens on his travels between Bath and London.
