Windsor Castle, Lacock, Bath and Stonehenge Day Trip | Includes Lunch Pack
Visit Windsor Castle on your Stonehenge Day Trip
Upon boarding the air-conditioned coach from London Victoria, the Stonehenge day trip will firstly take you to the weekend dwelling of Her Majesty The Queen – Windsor Castle. This famous attraction situated outside London has been in the British Royal family for more than 900 years. Since Henry I, Windsor Castle has been home to reigning monarchs and became the longest-occupied palace in Europe.
If you have chosen the entry ticket option, you can enter the Castle and see some of the most important artworks by renowned artists such as Rembrandt and Da Vinci. The 15th-century St George’s Chapel also stands within the castle walls as a breath-taking reminder of Gothic architecture. Next, tour the lavish State Apartments built as private chambers of the monarchs.
Marvel at the Stone Circle
After Windsor, it is time to continue your Stonehenge day trip. Visit the UNSECO listed monument, a mysterious rock formation standing on this very spot for the past five millennia. Dating back to around 3,000 BC, this ancient stone structure is three kilometres west of Amesbury. Some of the stones weigh 25 tonnes and are 30 feet tall. This British Cultural Icon has been an element of interest for many reasons. Was it a site of healing, or was it a shelter? Did it serve as a burial ground? For a world without enough scientific tech at that time, how the stones were brought and stood here is indeed a matter of curiosity.
With entry tickets, you can also access the Stonehenge Exhibition Centre. It houses an extensive collection, holding priceless artefacts as well as many archaeological discoveries from surrounding areas. So, soak in mind-boggling details of the past, learn about the attraction’s history and even purchase memorabilia at the visitor centre.
A Tour of Lacock and Bath
A serene medieval village is next in your itinerary – Lacock! First, discover the beautiful Abbey, established in the 1750s on the foundations of a nunnery in a sparkling Gothic Revival style. Making the village special is its preserved appearance, which has been kept intact even after a thousand years. The Abbey appears in various popular films, the Harry Potter series among them. After Lacock, you will make your way to the city of Bath. Enjoy a 30-minute walking tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which offers amazing highlights of the region along with in-depth knowledge about the city’s great history.
