From Brighton: Stonehenge and Bath Full-Day Trip

1. From Brighton: Stonehenge and Bath Full-Day Trip

To begin your jam-packed day, visit one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world — a must-see during any visit to England. Spanning back over 5,000 years of history, Stonehenge remains one of the world's great unsolved mysteries. The monument endures as a source of inspiration and fascination and, for many, a place of worship and celebration. An audioguide tour will accompany your walk around the stones. You can also visit the new, world-class visitor center, which is proud home to permanent and temporary exhibitions, plus a spacious shop and cafe. At the stone circle, a sense of context and dignity is returned to the monument.  In the afternoon, set off on a scenic drive to Bath. With over 2,000 years of history and streets lined with elegant, honey-colored Georgian houses, no other city rivals the breathtaking beauty of Bath. You will see the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Assembly Rooms, and the delightful Pulteney Bridge. Learn how the Romans arrived in Bath in the first century, discovered Britain's only existing hot water springs, and built a bathing complex. This complex now stands as Britain's greatest memorial to the Roman era. Toward the end of the tour, take some free time for shopping and to visit the city's many other attractions.

What people are saying about Brighton

Laura was an amazing tour guide for our trip to Greenwich and Cambridge! I’m a student at the University of Sussex and my mom, and a family friend, had travelled from Canada to visit for my graduation. Despite the trip including 25 international summer school students, Laura kept everyone on track and engaged. She was incredibly informative with personal stories and about life in Greenwich! She knew a lot about Cambridge and directed us around the city. Her walking tours were a fantastic pace and not to difficult for my adult travellers! The punting was an amazing experience and I’m glad Laura encouraged us to take the trip. It was another mini tour and super relaxing! We will definitely be signing up to another Discovery Tour if we’re back in the UK one day.

Fabio was an excellent guide. The tour allowed for 2 hours at Stonehenge which we were grateful for (we heard other tour groups that only had an hour), and 3 at Bath including an entertaining walking tour. My kids (15 & 18) enjoyed it too. Highly recommend!

Wonderful excursion! In both Stonehenge and Bath you have enough time to see everything you want. A special highlight was our guide Gerry. His tour of Bath was fun and informative. Everything was super organized!

Gerry was a great guide. Informative yet funny. Loved how he explained everything with so much zeel. Kudos to discovery travels for maintaining such a gem!!

Laura was amazing.. Gave lot of details about the places and helpful
