The basics

Included in the Domesday Book and established roughly 1,000 years ago, the historical village of Lacock offers a snapshot of England’s history.

Today, it’s home to multiple Grade I and II listed landmarks, from Lacock Abbey and St. Cyriac’s Church to the Sign of the Angel inn and Lacock Bridge, over the River Avon.

Amazing experience
The day turned up with perfect weather to see Stonehenge. The trip to Bath and to eat at the Lacock pub were a bonus but being in the inner circle at Stonehenge was the most amazing part. Peter our tour guide kept everyone engaged in the bus with his quirky humor.

Inner Circle Access of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock Day Tour from London
James and Paul were a wonderful duo who made sure we had a fabulous day. The timing of our 3 spots was perfect to soak in all the experiences. Stonehenge was magical and the guides are passionate about the site which made it even that more enjoyable. Lacock was a precious English village that was lovely and the time we spent in Bath was just enough to tour the springs and walk the streets. Highly recommend.

Bath, Avebury and Lacock Village Small-Group Day Tour from London
Samuel was a wonderful guide. He passed along information that made the stops more enjoyable. Our trip went smoothly and as it was a small group, timely. The Avebury stones were magnificent, Lacock charming, and Bath a place I need to visit for a longer period in the future.

Small-Group Day Trip to Bath, Lacock and Stonehenge from London
Bath was amazing, seeing the Roman baths was truly a treat. The true treasures were Lacock and Avebury. Really neat to see the old towns and all their amazing history. Would have liked enough time to have a pint in the pub in Lacock, but it was great nonetheless. Tony had an immense amount of knowledge on the history, the buildings, birds, etc. Great guide/host.

Coach was comfortable and the tour guide was very informative. Frank and choy did a good job showing us Stonehenge, Lacock and bath. Viewing inner circle was great and going early before the regular masses was fantastic. Great tour! Highly recommended! Just wish we could meet at 6am and skip the first coffee stop!
