Depart from central London in the early morning aboard a luxury coach for Windsor, your first stop of the day. On arrival, plug into your provided headphones, so you can hear your guide’s commentary clearly. Scout out the market town on a walking tour of its Tudor-style buildings, or opt to visit Windsor Castle on your own (specify upon booking).
Next, take in the rolling hills of the English countryside as you travel to the Roman town of Bath. Check off the UNESCO World Heritage–listed city’s top sights on a walking tour. Discover the Royal Crescent and other striking Georgian crescents and terraces, which inspired Jane Austen’s “Northanger Abbey” and “Persuasion” novels. Then, make the most of free time to perhaps visit the Jane Austen Visitor Centre or the Roman Baths (both at own expense).
Back aboard the coach, continue through the vast Salisbury Plains, which are home to a huge number of stone-age mounds and remains. The most famous of these is the UNESCO-listed stone circle at Stonehenge. Stroll around the prehistoric stones with your guide and stop by the visitor center to hear theories about how and why it was created.
After, your day trip concludes back at the original departure point in central London.
Please note: This tour’s itinerary will alter slightly from mid October until the end of October due to Stonehenge’s closing hours.
