Prices From:
US$ 596

This short London vacation is a great way to begin a UK tour or simply fill in a stopover to your next destination. Take a day to explore the city’s most popular attractions and see the major sights, then set out to explore Bath, Stonehenge, and Windsor Castle, official residence of the Queen.


This 4-day First Class accommodated London trip takes in the major landmarks of the city, then takes you out to historic Stonehenge, beautiful Bath, and the grandeur of Windsor Castle.

Get settled into your accommodation in Hammersmith, convenient to all the best sights of Westminster and Kensington. Then your first morning is all about London’s pomp and ceremony, seeing Westminster Abbey, Kensington Palace, Royal Albert Hall, and St James’ Park. Take in the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, then enjoy lunch at a traditional London pub on your own account. The afternoon takes in two of London’s best attractions. Enjoy a guided tour of Saint Paul’s Cathedral, then explore the Tower of London, where you can join an entertaining free Beefeater tour for the inside story.

The following day, set out for Windsor Castle, an official residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Visit the State Apartments on your tour around this historic fortress, then go on to an even more ancient British icon. Stonehenge has baffled historians, archaeologists, and occultists for centuries – along with intriguing visitors. Learn about the legends that shroud the site and wonder at the engineering knowhow that would have been required to build such a structure. Spend the rest of the day exploring the historic city of Bath, where the legacy of the invading Romans lives on in a spectacular network of baths dating back over 2,000 years.

Return to London for your onward journey, or stay a few days to explore on your own.

Day 3

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.
