Bath & Stonehenge by Car
11 hour tour
Experience two World Heritage sites in a single trip!
On route from London, we will stop off for a quick photo opportunity in one of England’s picture postcard Cotswold villages, before arriving in Bath.
Bath is a story of two distinct periods 1650 years apart, which both grew up here to take advantage of the only Natural Hot Springs in the country.
From the 1st century AD the main attraction here is the Roman Baths and Temple remains. These are considered to be some of the most important Roman remains north of the Alps. Next we have the stunning Palladian architecture left behind by the Georgians of the 18th and 19th centuries. They planned and built a city for both Royalty and the privileged to relax, heal, see and be seen in.
Additional sights of interest include Bath Abbey, the Fashion Museum, the Jane Austen Centre and the Georgian House – a house from the period perfectly preserved and presented.
A typical tour of Bath consists of a walking/driving tour, taking in the sights and architecture, followed by a visit to the Roman Baths complex. Then we head off to lunch at a country pub on route to Stonehenge.
Feel the mystery and develop your theory. The World Heritage site of Stonehenge goes back 5,000 years, why was it built? Let’s see if we can work it out.
Stonehenge is an exposed site so please consider bringing warm waterproof clothing, just in case.
