Depart from near Victoria Railway Station in central London and leave the hustle and bustle behind you as you travel out into the English countryside by luxury coach. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride as London’s urban scenery gives way to the open greenery of the countryside.
First, head through the rolling Wiltshire plains to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge, widely considered one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world. The enormous stones are believed to have been brought from the Preseli Mountains in Wales — a distance of over 280 miles (450 kilometers) — sometime between 3,000 BC and 2,000 BC, though to this day nobody is sure of the exact reasons for their arrangement and placement. Marvel at the huge stone circle, discover the many mysteries surrounding it and decide for yourself why Stonehenge was built.
Continue onward to the fine city of Bath, birthplace of authoress Jane Austin. Explore the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage-listed city — considered by many to be one of the prettiest cities in England — with your guide, and enjoy capturing its attractive Georgian architecture, crescents and terraces on camera. After your tour, enjoy a little free time to wander the cobbled streets and peruse the shops at your leisure.
Head north from Bath through the heart of the Cotswolds, widely thought of as one of the most beautiful stretches of countryside in England. Take in breathtaking views of open fields criss-crossed by dry stone walls as you travel, and bustling market towns with magnificent churches. Enjoy the spectacular scenery from the comfort of your coach.
Arrive in the charming town of Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare and home to the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. Stratford is a charming market town set in the heart of rural England, with a delightful river winding its way slowly through the town. Enjoy Champagne and scones in Shakespeare's garden (the reception will take place indoors in winter), stretch your legs and explore Stratford to soak up the town’s wonderfully welcoming atmosphere.
At the end of your time in Stratford-Upon-Avon, hop back in your coach for the return journey to London, where your tour will conclude.
Please note: during busy periods the order of the itinerary may change.

The places we stopped on this tour were quaint and beautiful. It's like going back in time. I wish we could have stopped in Cotswolds, otherwise the tour was perfect.

I'm kinda torn about these sweeping one-day tours. I like to settle into a place for a few days and really explore it. But sometimes it's just not an option to settle into several places on one trip, so you can either see things on a whirlwind trip like this one or not see them at all. I'm so glad I chose to see it!
To be really honest, most of our time was spent on the tour bus. But it was comfortable, and our tour guide was such a pleasure: super knowledgeable about British history, and he was an actual actor, so he performed Shakespeare for us as we were approaching Stratford-upon-Avon! Such a treat. We didn't stay in Stratford for very long, but that was okay, because there wasn't a ton to see. If I could have stayed anywhere longer it would have been Bath. Dreamy. And our guide gave us great suggestions for food and activities so we could make the most of our time. Stone Henge was magnificent, especially with the audio guide to provide more context.
All in all, this was just a really wonderful experience. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have several weeks to spend in England, but wants to get out of London for a bit.
