Departure Time

8:10 AM
Depart central London in the morning by air-conditioned coach ,and journey southwest to Stonehenge as your guide shares fascinating facts about this prehistoric monument and the mysteries it holds.

The Stonehenge site is closed to visitors on Christmas Day, but you can still enjoy splendid views of the giant stone circle from adjacent Salisbury Plain. Stop here to take pictures free from the usual crowds, and listen as your guide reveals more about the monument. Discover some of the theories for how the stones were transported here and why the circle was built.

Continue to the nearby historical spa town of Bath. From your coach, admire the elegant Georgian buildings, built from honey-hued local stone, and enjoy a walking tour of the streets, seeing the glorious Royal Crescent and 18th-century Pulteney Bridge.

Then, travel on to the Cotswolds, where rolling hills and stone villages make up one of England’s prettiest regions. Admire the picture-postcard scenery, and pull up at a quaint Elizabethan-era pub for today’s highlight—a delicious Christmas lunch.

Settle inside the cozy inn, and feast on a traditional Christmas Day meal. Accompany your meal with your choice from the pub’s real ales and fine wines (own expense), and finish with a refreshing cup of tea or coffee.

Afterward, make your way back to London. Stop in Stratford-upon-Avon, famous for being the 16th-century birthplace of William Shakespeare, England’s greatest playwright. Pass the picturesque childhood family home of his later wife, Anne Hathaway, and stop for photos at Shakespeare’s family home, where he was born in 1564.

Your Christmas Day tour ends in central London in the early evening.

I thought the tour was very good and the tour guide was excellent. Only issue I had was i wish that the company would have provided morning tea or at least a bottle of water. As it was Christmas day nothing was open and we ididn't have a drink of anything from 7:30am until lunch which was at 2pm.

I probably would've left Stonehenge off this tour. We weren't even allowed to stop on the road, so we just drove past it and took blurry photos from the moving bus. I would've rather had extra time in Bath or Stratford-upon-Avon. Almost everything was closed because it was Christmas Day, but that was to be expected. The towns were peaceful and the tour guide was friendly and quite informative. I enjoyed the trip and would recommend it.

The tour was a great way to spend Christmas Day! Although very little was open, we were still able to visit many beautiful locations in England. The countryside was gorgeous and the tour was no stress. The tour guide and driver were excellent.

, Dec 2013
it was the holiday so everything exept the bar was closed and the guide told us we couldn't stop on the motorway passing Stonehedge, and even the road was empty we had to take pictures from a moving bus. Next we've spent too much time in this bus instead of walking. We had 2 stops more (40 min each at the beginning and at the end of the tour) at Foodcourts aside from motorway. Instead of wasting time there it would be much better to walk a bit in Stratford (as we have just fluently seen it from the bus) or spend more time in Bath as the weather that day was perfect. The lunch was poor.
