    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Stonehenge, Amesbury SP4 7DE England

    You will be picked up from your central London accommodation by your own private driver and guide and following a relaxed, scenic drive arrive in the beautiful Salisbury Plains.
    A fully private guided tour of the Stonehenge Site at your leisure including time to visit the Museum, Restaurant and Shop. Your personal guide will be on hand to help take photographs and bring the history of Stonehenge to life.
    Stonehenge continues to baffle and inspire Archaeologists and Historians. The exact when, how, why, and who questions still challenge the top professionals. Perhaps this is part of the reason that over 1 million people visit this ancient site each year.
    Your guide will explain all the main theories, including the folklore and King Arthur connections in a fun, relaxed and informative way.
    Once you have enjoyed the World Heritage site at your leisure, it will be time to drive through an area of outstanding natural beauty as we make our way to another Heritage site, the ancient City of Bath. The journey takes one hour, but you won't notice as you will be busy enjoying the stunning views as we drive through rural England.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Sally Lunn’s Historic Eating House & Museum, 4 North Parade Passage, Bath BA1 1NX, UK

    Sally Lunn's Tea Room is located in Bath's oldest house dating back to 1492. This is a perfect spot to take lunch and try the famous "Bath Bun" said to have been created by Sally Lunn in the late 1600's. If you are not hungry at this point there is a small Museum and Bun take away service.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Bath Abbey, Bath BA1 1LT England

    Included in the day trip is a walking tour of the historic centre of Bath including an optional visit to Bath Abbey. The Abbey is important as it was one of the last major Christian buildings built before Henry VIII split with the Catholic Church. Your guide will make sure you see all the key locations within the historic quarter of Bath.
    Founded as a town by the Romans who viewed the natural hot springs as sacred, the settlement flourished and the Roman Baths became one of the most impressive buildings in Roman Britain. Neglected during the dark ages, the Baths had a renaissance in the 18th Century, and continued to be used until the late 1970's.
    They say the Doctors of Bath specialised in certain diseases, and those were the diseases of the rich! Wealthy visitors would flock to the Pump Room to follow their Doctors orders for their various ailments that would be cured in the waters of Bath.
    On your walk around the centre of Bath you will see the buildings that inspired Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, and where the Aristocracy spent their leisure time in the highly fashionable Bath Spa of the Georgian and Regency periods.
    Bath is protected from development, so here you will see some of the best Georgian and Regency architecture in England. Plus you will also have time to explore the many shops and alleys in this beautiful city.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: The Roman Baths, Abbey Church Yard, Bath BA1 1LZ England

    After a tour of the historic area of Bath, you will be taken into the Roman Baths. You will have a guided introduction to the world heritage site and then be able to tour the museum at your leisure. Your guide will be on hand to assist with Photographs and help you get the best out of your visit.
    At the end of the tour you may wish to try the mineral rich water traditionally thought to cure all manner of complaints.
    The plumbing here is 2000 years old and going strong. But don't worry the water you try is pumped through slightly newer pipes!

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Royal Crescent, Bath BA1 1EE England

    Built by John Wood The Younger, the Royal Crescent was the centre of high society in Bath. The aristocracy held balls in the lavish rooms of the crescent, and Jane Austen often satirized regency period Bath in her novels.
    The Royal Crescent and the nearby Circus are two of the most photographed places in Bath and once you see their sweeping Georgian facades you will understand why.
