Travelers who want to explore the area surrounding Bath will find much to do in quick day tours around the city. Stonehenge is a popular and intriguing site for many tourists. Nearby there is also the village of Avebury, home to another ancient stone circle, which is very different from Stonehenge, and not roped off. The nearby towns of Wells and Glastonbury are worth a visit as well. Travelers who want to see a bit of Southern Wales can take a drive through the Wye Valley, passing such sites as Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle. The Cotswolds just to the north make for a relaxing day outside the city.
