Stonehenge and Bath are the two of the most popular tourist attractions in England. As English Heritage describes, Stonehenge is ‘one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe’. There are several myths and mysteries surrounding it that makes it ethereal and mind-boggling. On the other hand, Bath is definitely an english charm with beautiful and historic buildings. It is famous for Georgian terraces, Thermal spa waters and many more.
These two are approximately two hours away from London but it could be less depending on the transportation. So here is my guide on how to get to Stonehenge and Bath from London.
- TRAIN - Stonehenge is two hours and thirty minutes away from London and taking a train is the cheapest and easiest way to get there. There is a frequent train schedules in London Waterloo station that goes directly to Salisbury and from Salisbury train station, take the Stonehenge Bus Tour which takes you directly to Stonehenge Visitor Centre.
- BUS - Getting a bus tour is the ideal solution for most tourists. It is quite costly but it is the most convenient option for tourists. There are a wide range of tours available to stonehenge and bath from London. Prices vary according to the package/ tour.
- TRAIN - Bath is one hour and thirty minutes away from London; it is much closer compared to Stonehenge. There is a direct train ride from London Paddington Station to Bath Spa.
- BUS - As I mentioned, there are several tours available in London that could be purchased online. It will be way inexpensive if you only plan to visit bath alone but I highly suggest to do a day trip to Stonehenge and Bath.
There are many tours and packages online but as I said, most of it are very costly. However, there is a very low-priced Stonehenge and Bath tour. You can purchase ticket on Groupon for as low as £34 for child ticket and £39 for adult ticket. Only one person can buy a ticket, but can buy 9 additional tickets as gifts. The only drawback is that they have different dates for the tour so make sure you check the dates and read the conditions too before purchasing a ticket from Groupon.
Lastly, If you are a group of 3 to 6, it is also convenient and affordable to get a private car and tour. It is very flexible and you can see places at your own pace and you can generally decide your own schedule without compromising with people you don’t know. I chose this option when we visited stonehenge and bath. If you are interested to this last option, I can give you the contact details of the driver I know. Just drop me a message.
