Described as the Monte Carlo and the Las Vegas of Georgian England, and this tour gives you a comfortable morning to explore the city. Everything about the town’s imposing Palladian-style architecture was designed to make a striking visual impact – something that it still achieves today, hundreds of years on from its construction. This UNESCO World Heritage Site never fails to wow visitors from around the world. Our tour of Bath takes us to the best parts, starting with Pulteney Bridge and The Circus. Then moving to the imposing Royal Crescent and going inside Bath Abbey with its huge vaulted ceiling. Our knowledgeable guides will also point out the Celtic links between Bath and Stonehenge, so you leave not only with some fantastic photos, but with a real understanding of the town and its landscape.
Perhaps no other site in England can convey the shared beauty and mystery of Stonehenge. Our tour allows you to hear the theories and draw your own conclusions: could Stonehenge be a site of astronomical importance? A pre-Roman temple? An alien launching pad? What is certain is that the archaeological and engineering importance of this breathtaking site is second to none. During your visit you will have access to the multi-million-pound Visitor Information Centre, where you can see the most cutting-edge modern science and research on this ancient landmark.
The guides are just as important as the sites; and all our guides are trained to the highest standards to ensure you have fun and engaging experience!
