Day trips from Bath

Guests of Bath hotels often head in one direction for their day out – and that’s towards Stonehenge.  Scarper Tours operate three hour tours dedicated to showing visitors Stonehenge, and they leave from the centre of the city every day. Just an hour away by car, Stonehenge is one of Britain’s most famous landmarks and this ancient creation is still very much a mystery.

Some believe that it was a temple used for worshipping the sun, others think it was a burial site and then some think it was a centre of healing. We may never know the answer, but that makes a visit all the more interesting for the whole family. Stonehenge is owned by English Heritage, and the free audio tour will make sure that you’re up to sped with everything we do know about this stunning South West site.
