Details

8.45am - Depart London Eye

Our first pick up is on the corner of Belvedere Road and Chicheley Street, SE1 7PB. This is the bus pick up and drop off point for the London Eye (see departure point page here) This is in the Waterloo area and a short walk from both Waterloo and Westminster Stations. Your bus and guide will normally arrive 5-10 minutes before departure. Look out for a small white bus with “The English Bus” written on the side. A prompt departure is essential so please arrive in plenty of time.

9.10am - Depart London Victoria

Outside the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London Victoria, at 2 Bridge Place, SW1V 1QA (see departure point page here) This is a very short walk from Victoria Station. Take exit 1 from the main railway station and turn right. Please be waiting outside the hotel, we will stop to pick you up as close to the hotel entrance as we can.

After pick ups - Head out of London

After we have picked everyone up, and you are sat comfortably, your driver/guide will introduce themselves, and explain the plan for your day. Your guide will provide full commentary on our interesting route out of London, passing some major landmarks on our way. We will make a quick bathroom/coffee/snack stop - you are more than welcome to eat and drink on the bus.

11.15am - Arrive Castle Combe

Heading west out of London, we pass Windsor with views of the castle, travelling through Royal Berkshire and into Wiltshire, the start of the "West Country". Turning off the main roads, we travel down some scenic back routes to Castle Combe. Before our arrival, your guide will tell you all about the village and what there is to see and do, before you explore. Wander down the main street admiring the Cotswolds beauty, perhaps stop for a cup of tea and a scone. Visit the 13th century church and get some beautiful pictures of one of England's most beautiful villages.

12.45pm - Arrive Bath - panoramic driving tour of Bath's most beautiful streets

Just 12 miles west of Castle Combe is the beautiful city of Bath. On arrival we'll begin our visit with a short panoramic driving tour to show you Bath’s finest streets - the Royal Crescent, the Circus and the Assembly Rooms.

1.15pm - Drop off in the heart of Bath - Lunch

After a short driving tour we’ll drop you off in the centre of Bath with some recommendations of places to eat and drink and sights to see. Perhaps you might choose a typical English pub or cafe, or a quick and tasty pasty - a special type of local pie, perhaps washed down with a glass of famous local cider? Your guide will be full of advice for you. We'll also provide a handy map of Bath for you too.

Afternoon - Guided tours of Bath and free time to explore

After lunch your guide will offer you an optional guided walking tour of Bath, focusing on the history and highlights of the city, and the different incarnations of the baths through the ages - from the Celts, the Romans, the Georgians to the present day. You’ll have some free time to explore the city that inspired Charles Dickens and Jane Austen at your leisure.

3.45pm - Depart Bath and drive through the beautiful countryside to Stonehenge

Leaving the beautiful city of Bath behind, we'll head south west through the rolling hills, farmland and fields of Somerset and Wiltshire. We’ll drive through some quintessential English villages and take the back roads to give you a taste of real rural England. You will get some fantastic views. Your guide will point out traditional English houses and talk about English country life.

4.45pm - Arrive Stonehenge

We'll be visiting Stonehenge at the end of the day - when the site is quietest. 

Before your arrival, your guide will discuss this mysterious stone circle with you in preparation for our arrival, so you have a good understanding of what you’re seeing.

There’ll be plenty of time to take some wonderful pictures, listen to the audio-guide and visit the gift shop, cafe and the new visitor centre. Your guide will be very interested to hear your thoughts, will answer questions about Stonehenge and tell you some of the more weird and wonderful stories you wouldn't otherwise have heard.

Early evening - Leave Stonehenge

Following your visit to Stonehenge, we'll begin making our way through the countryside back to London. Take this time to relax, or talk with your guide and ask any questions you may have, either about your visit to Stonehenge and some of Stonehenge's latest mysteries and theories, or about anything else you'd like to discuss.

8.15 - 8.30pm - Arrive central London

Dependent on traffic, we’ll get back to London between 8.15 - 8.30pm. Your guide will plan the route into London based on where you all want to go, and will endeavour to get you as close as possible to your destination. We will also always return to the areas you started the tour, if this is your best option. Speak with your guide so they can make sure you know exactly how to get to where you need to get to.
