BATH & STONEHENGE

Guided day tour from Cambridge

Adult £85.00/Student £79.00/Child £75.00

Maximum 16 passengers

Except in June, July & August.

This is our most popular day tour! Visit England's most beautiful town and one of the world's most iconic prehistoric monuments.     

 

Bath is, perhaps, the most beautiful town in England. It was designed by brilliant architects and built for the elite of 18th century British high society. Rich aristocrats, wealthy industrialists and royalty came to share a sophisticated city enjoying a renewed interest in health spa bathing. The majestic architecture is worth a visit alone but it's the Roman Baths that's the highlight of the city.  

      

Stonehenge is one of the most recognisable monuments of the ancient world. The stone circle is located at the centre of a fascinating landscape filled with prehistoric ceremonial structures. Come and discover who built them and why they were built.
