US$ 643

Discover London on a quick trip over the pond. Head on the original sightseeing tour to take in the biggest landmarks like Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace before touring historic pubs and heading outside the city proper to see Stonehenge, Bath, and Windsor Castle.


This 4-day London vacation showcases the many sides of England’s capital, from the historic pubs that supply its folksy charm to the ruins and castles that define its neighbouring regions. It’s a perfect city stay for globetrotters wanting to experience London’s many-faceted charms.

Your England vacation centres on London, one of the most-visited cities on the planet—and justifiably so. With history stretching back to Roman times and some of the finest architecture, galleries, and culture on the planet, people have been prioritizing London vacations for centuries. Start with the original London sightseeing tour, which flits you around the city aboard a Hop-on Hop-off bus tour, stopping off at the most iconic landmarks, including Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Tower of London, and Buckingham Palace. Next up is the Historic Pub Walking Tour, which takes you to three of the city’s most famous pubs, including the Anchor Bankside where river pirates and smugglers would swap stories of their exploits. Close out your time in downtown London by riding the Cola-Cola London Eye. This spectacular Ferris wheel whisks you 135m above the city, where you can admire London’s world-famous architecture with unobstructed, 360-degree views.

Continue your England vacation by popping outside of London to see the nearby highlights. First stop is Stonehenge, the mystical rock formation that is at least 5,000 years old and was likely a site of worship for ancient Britons. Next up is Bath, home to Britain’s only hot springs and a site of ancient Roman ruins. Here you’ll be able to enjoy the 46.5°C waters and learn about the Romans at the Roman Baths Museum. Your final stop is Windsor Castle, home to Queen Elizabeth II and the largest and oldest continuously-occupied castle in the world. Marvel at the castle’s size and admire some of its many treasures, from Queen Mary’s elaborate dolls house to the tombs of Henry VIII and Charles I. Then back London proper, where you can have one last pint and fit in some fish and chips if you haven’t already. Consider extending your stay in London, as it’s a city you’ll want to explore in full.

This London vacation gives you a taste of the iconic sights the city has to offer.

Day 2

Stonehenge Exclusive Viewing Lacock and Bath -Sunrise

Our tour starts with a drive to Bath to visit the Roman Baths and Pump Room. In the late afternoon we visit Lacock for an early evening supper in a 13th Century inn, before driving to Stonehenge. As the sun begins to set, we enter the stone circle (which is normally roped off to the public) for a unique private viewing. The most dramatic and atmospheric way of visiting Stonehenge.

On selected days the tour operates in reverse, beginning with a private viewing of Stonehenge before it opens to the public in the morning, so we see the stones in the eerie morning light. This is followed by our visits to Lacock and Bath.

Stonehenge - private viewing at sunset. 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 Premium Tours you get that access, with 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!

Lacock is 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 Austens Pride and Prejudice and more recently Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. We will take a delightful walk before we enjoy an early evening supper in The George Inn, a vintage English pub built in 1361.

Bath. Next, it's on to Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian architecture. During your panoramic tour of Bath you will be enchanted by the town's beautifully proportioned street. 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, modelled 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 from the hot springs every day. The Roman Baths, is the best preserved Roman spa from the ancient world.
