Day tours from London to Stonehenge and the West country

Take a day out of the city to explore some more of England. There is so much to see when visiting the West Country and Stonehenge is always one of the most popular sites. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this set of ancient stones is still shrouded in mystery. We know that it predates the Iron Age, and is one of the best insights we have into ancient Britain – it is the most architecturally sophisticated and only surviving lintelled stone circle in the world. There is still great speculation about how the site was actually used, though. Was it a place for the coronation of Danish kings? Was it a Druid temple? Perhaps a cult centre for healing? The theories are still coming in, keeping Stonehenge as mysterious and fascinating as ever.

Stonehenge is a great base to explore other parts of the West Country. Take a trip into historic Bath, a traditional Roman and Georgian city. Spend time strolling through the meadow at Runnymede or enter the classrooms at Lacock Abbey were Harry Potter worked his magic.

This is a full day tour lasting 11 hours – we allow an hour for lunch, so you only pay for 10 hours.

Some highlights of your west country tour

These are some of the sights that can be included in your tour of the West Country. We recommend visiting two during your day trip. A must is probably Stonehenge as it offers so much information and curiosity. It is also a central point to all other locations.

“We thoroughly enjoyed the Harry Potter and Stonehenge London tours. Many thanks to our Black Taxi driver/guide, Keith Groves, who’s expert knowledge of London made it an enjoyable and educational experience. We had many opportunities to take some fantastic pictures, some of scenic and others of historical significance. I highly recommend Black Taxi London because of their expert knowledge and safe driving while moving through London to enjoy the sites.”


“I used Black Taxi Tour for a private guided tour of Stonehenge on October 5, 2018. Let me just say, the driver exceeded my expectations in every possible way. He was friendly and kind and extremely knowledgeable. His passion for history and knowledge of Stonehenge made this an unforgettable experience. I am a shocked at how much I leaned and how fun that he made my tour. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I highly recommend that you give it a try!!! This would also be great for families and kids, in addition to adults.”

“Thank you Barry and Black Taxi Tour London for two fantastic tours! We did tour of London and day trip to of Bath, Stonehenge and Windsor. Family of 6- kids 9 to 16. Great value and first class sightseeing. The taxis can park right up to the attractions in London, hop out for photos and explanation and then jump back in. Great way to see all the sights of London. The day trip was also great. Tickets to attractions organised for us. Good recommendations for lunch. Barry made the tour interesting and fun and the kids especially loved him. Thank you! We will be back…one day!”
