Private day-trip from Southampton to visit the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath and Stourhead - a historic estate renowned for its beautiful landscape garden.
I will collect you at 7:30am from your hotel in Southampton and drive you to Bath, approx. 1 hour 45 minutes away.
I will take you to my favourite viewpoint overlooking Bath to give you a great perspective of the city. We will then head into the centre of Bath where I will take you on a walking tour to show you the famous buildings and streets and will tell you about the fascinating stories behind them, the city and past residents such as Jane Austen. To maximise our sightseeing time I will drive you to the famous streets of the Circus and the Royal Crescent.
After exploring Bath I will drive you to Stourhead, approx. 45 minute from Bath. On route we will stop for lunch at a charming historic village pub.
Once home to generations of the Hoare family the Stourhead estate is now looked after by the National Trust. It is a beautiful place to take a walk among its famous landscape garden which we will do during our visit.
After visiting Stourhead I will drive you back to Southampton, approx. 1 hour 30 minutes away. We should reach your accommodation around 4:30pm.
The price includes our entrance tickets into Stourhead, a private guide and private transfers. Your only costs on the day will be lunch, any refreshments and souvenirs.
We will be exposed to the weather during the tour so please wear suitable clothing and wear footwear suitable for walking on dirt paths when we are at Stourhead.
We do not go inside any of the museums in Bath (e.g. the Roman Baths museum) and there will not be time to go inside the house at Stourhead although we can see this from the outside.
If you have any questions about any aspects of the tours please let me know!
