As part of this most popular of tours, you will visit the City of Bath famed for its Roman built Baths – but did you know it was also at the epicentre of the wool industry in the middle ages? You will be taken on a panoramic tour of Bath, you will see some of the finest architecture in the UK and across Europe. You will visit the magnificent Bath Abbey, the Circus, the Royal Crescent, Assembly Rooms and of course the Pulteney Bridge. You will be shown the Roman Baths which are built around the thermal springs, these springs have been providing water for over two thousand years. Going back to Roman times, a great Temple was erected next to this sacred spring, it was believed that the water from it had healing properties and therefore it attracted visitors from all across the Roman Empire.
One of the leading UK Attractions, Stonehenge is shrouded in mystery, it is an amazing feat of engineering and is defined as one of the most important pre-historic site in England. Stonehenge is not only highly significant in terms of archaeology, it is also believed to have a astronomical role and is also a place of significant spiritual importance. It will always be clouded in mystery and early legends link Stonehenge with Merlin and King Arthur, but more recently in the last hundred years the midsummer sunrise has brought with it pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids.
The tour will finish back outside of London Victoria Train Station, this gives you easy access to National Rail and Underground trains enabling you to get to where you need to be in the evening. You can expect for the tour to arrive back to the station approximately 7:30pm but this can change depending on weather, traffic and other factors.
I opted for this trip with my family as we read some of the reviews about not having much time in places so we opted for this. It was a really great day and we never felt rushed. Loved Bath... could move there in an instance! And Stonehenge I thought was amazing, although my kids could understand why we had gone to visit a pile of rocks in a field! Driver and guide were super and helpful especially with my wife not feeling great on the coach on the way home.
