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.

Inner Circle Access of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock Day Tour from London
A memorable tour to Stonehenge with access to the inner circle in a small group and a guide, Bath and Lacock. Our guide Andrew was very knowledgeable, helpful and with a great sense of humor and made the journey even more pleasant. The driver was also very professional and helpful with everyone. I highly recommend this experience with viator and I will definitely travel with viator again.

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.

Inner Circle Access of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock Day Tour from London
This was an incredible day. There is truly no other way to experience Stonehenge. Just book the trip. Carol was an amazing guide for the day. Lacock was great, wish we had just an hour more. Bath was also fantastic. Of course you can never see everything when you do these kinds of tours, but this was just the perfect way to experience these highlights of Great Britain and Wonders of the World.

Our tour guide Tony was amazing. He was informative, funny, accommodating and concerned that everyone got the most out of the experience. He clearly loves his job and his country as it showed throughout our day. When we go back to England, we will definitely request his services again!

Inner Circle Access of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock Day Tour from London
We had an early tour and the inner circle of the stones were incredible!! For no other reason than this I would recommend this tour. Bath was great however, and the walk around Lacock and breakfast made this trip incredibly memorable and perfect! Frank and Mohammad took great care of us and we really enjoyed learning as much as we did.

Inner Circle Access of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock Day Tour from London
Alex and Washami did a great job keeping up on time and have enough time for every attraction. We saw the Stonehenge from the inside which is very exclusive. Alex was very knowledgeable about everything. Then we headed to the little village that was built in 14th century where Downton Abbey and Harry Potter filmed there at one point. We ended the tour in the bath house built by Roman. It was a very informative tour. We got back about 4:30PM. We had a great time.

Inner Circle Access of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock Day Tour from London
So spiritual to encounter stones as sun was low in sky casting long shadows over the area. Our guide, Carole was very competent in guiding 40+ people through Lacock, Bath and Stonehenge. Highly recommend the inner circle experience.
