From Oxford: Stonehenge and Bath Small-Group Tour

Bath has been 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 after its construction. This UNESCO World Heritage Site never fails to wow visitors from around the world. Explore the best of the city, starting with Pulteney Bridge, the Circus, the imposing Royal Crescent and a wander inside Bath Abbey with its huge vaulted ceiling. Your knowledgeable guide 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 compete with the beauty and mystery of Stonehenge.

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.  This tour includes optional collection from central Oxford hotels or Oxford Train Station included, along with central and Oxford train station return.

What people are saying about The Circus, Bath

Really loved this small group trip there was only 6 of us and the guide driver Freddie. The vehicle we drove in was spacious and comfortable, which was good, because it is one-and-a-half hours to Stonehenge from Oxford, and getting there early certainly helps as it was not crowded at all, and we went straight up to the Stones after a quick coffee. Our guide Freddie was very knowledgeable,and great fun with some of the stories he told. Then after a quick visit to the souvenir shop and a walk round the the information centre it was back in the the minibus and on to Bath which I think took about an hour. After a quick lunch/shop break of about 45 minutes,our guide Freddie took us on a tour of the best of Bath, again he was very knowledgeable about the city and that took about an hour and a half. Then quick restroom break and back in in the minibus to Oxford which again is about an hour and a half.

I really feel amazed on the trip.the tour manager come along with the trip and the tour guide is also nice.the tour guide woman can explain the interested legendary along the trip with clear voice .it is me who speaks English as second language understand her voice well. The tour is perfect.
