You'll never forget your first glimpse of spectacular Stonehenge, its monolithic rocks rising up against the skyline on Salisbury Plain. Theories abound about the mysterious rock formation. Was it intended as a religious temple? An astronomical clock? A Bronze Age burial ground? Make up your own mind as you explore the unique landmark that has had the world stumped for 5,000 years.
Salisbury and the Magna Carta
Soaring into the skyline, the spire of Salisbury Cathedral stands at a whopping 123m (404ft)! Erected 800 years ago, the revolutionary spire is considered one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. Ancient meets modern at the cathedral's newest addition: a beautifully sculpted font designed by William Pye. Salisbury Cathedral is also home to the world's oldest working clock and the best-preserved of the four remaining original copies of the Magna Carta. Marvel at this astonishing medieval document in the Chapter House with its slender central pillar and stunning medieval frieze.

Standing proudly on the slopes of the River Avon, beautiful Bath was the first city in England to be designated an UNESCO World Heritage site. The gorgeous 15th century Bath Abbey, the stunning Georgian architecture, the romantic Pulteney Bridge, modelled on Florence's Ponte Vecchio, are all sights to linger on in the memory of your day.
No tour of Bath would be complete without a visit to the famous Roman Baths that gave the city its name. This beautifully preserved bathing complex still flows with water from Britain's only hot spring. Marvel at the dazzling torch-lighting ceremony as dusk falls (not applicable in summer) and sip Bath's healing waters in the Pump Room, a stunning neo-classical salon where hot spa waters are drawn for drinking.
This tour will finish at approximately 7.00pm in London.

I wanted to take a moment now that I’m home to tell you how amazing our tour was. My teenage sons are a little grouchy and I was expecting them to be a bitsullen. What I didn’t expect was that our guide Keife would be so great at connecting with them and also so insanely knowledgeable about history. I reallywas so impressed. And I’m a history major! It was the best day of our trip andmeant so much to me that the boys were so engaged by Keife who is just such aneasy-going and funny person and I could see immediately that my sons found him funny and interesting. I deeply appreciated his efforts all day to do all thethings I wanted and balance all our needs. It’s not easy to be a mom draggingyour sons around and his personality made that day so much fun! I can tell fromhow well he got on with the various people we met that he makes a point to berespectful and appreciative as he goes about his day. He was well liked by alland put a lot of energy into our entire day. I will never forget it. They botht hought he was cool and funny -and he is! Very happy! Thank you!
