Bath and Stonehenge - Private Day Tour
Bath Insider Tours
, Bath, UNITED KINGDOM
Explore Bath and the region's most famous attraction: Stonehenge on this private tour with a local guide who was born in Bath.
The tour includes a drive to a fantastic viewpoint over Bath and a walking tour of the city where I will show you all of Bath's famous buildings and streets. I will tell you about the fascinating stories behind these, the city and famous residents such as Jane Austen.
After lunch I will drive you to Stonehenge, approx. 50 minutes from Bath. Without a guide Stonehenge can be just a bunch of interesting rocks so I will accompany you throughout the tour to bring the site to life. Despite visiting it over 100 times Stonehenge never ceases to amaze me!
Walking around the Visitor Centre I will explain about the history of Stonehenge to prepare you for what you are about to see. We will then go to the stone circle and as we walk around it I will point out its features and share some of its unusual stories. I will also tell you about the latest archaeological findings from talks that I have attended with leading archaeologists. There will be plenty of opportunities for photos before we return to Bath.
Your admission tickets into Stonehenge are included in the price and the tour includes complimentary pick-up and drop-off at your accommodation in Bath. Please contact me if you would like to purchase your own admission tickets for Stonehenge. We do not go inside any of the museums in Bath (e.g. the Roman Baths museum) and lunch is not included in the price.
This is a great tour for seeing two UNESCO World Heritage sites in one day!
