Summary of The Day: Our tour will begin with a private viewing of Stonehenge before it opens to the public during the morning at sunrise. On this tour, we'll see the stones in the eerie morning light. This is followed by our visits to Lacock and Bath.
Built nearly 5,000 years ago, Stonehenge is the most popular prehistoric monument in the world. Most visitors to the site are not allowed direct access to the stones. With this tour, you get that access plus a private viewing of the mysterious monoliths. We will enter the stone circle itself and stand beside the mighty Sarsen rocks towering above us. Our guide will explain the history of this ancient site, pointing out the altar, slaughter and heel stones, above which the sun rises dramatically on the summer solstice. There will be time to enjoy the peace, away from the crowds, as we experience Stonehenge at its most mystical and atmospheric best. Not to be missed!
We'll next travel to Lacock - a little known, picturesque village dating back to the Saxon era. Many of the beautiful buildings originally formed part of an extensive monastic complex and are now owned by The National Trust. So pretty is the village that it has provided the setting for many movies and television dramas including Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" and more recently "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone." We will take a delightful walk before we enjoy breakfast in The George Inn, a vintage English pub built in 1361. (Food/drink not included)
Bath is famous for its elegant Georgian architecture. During your panoramic tour of Bath, you will be enchanted by the town's beautifully proportioned streets. Your guide will also conduct an optional walking tour to show you a charming 17th-century Sally Lunn tea room and the Jane Austin Museum among many other hidden treasures. You'll see Bath Abbey and the much-photographed Pulteney Bridge, modeled on the famous Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence. There will be plenty of time to visit Bath Abbey, or to shop and explore. Then we will enter the magnificent Roman Baths, where over one million litres of boiling water still burst free from the hot springs every day. The Roman Baths is the best preserved Roman spa from the ancient world.
