Day Trip to Bath suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodor's family,

I have researched quite a bit about a day trip from London to Bath. I've compared tour companies vs. "go-it-alone" train ticket options. From what I can tell we will want to spend our entire day there. I was initially excited when I found out the tours offered a pit-stop at Stonehenge mostly because if you're that close to another landmark "why not?"; however the large majority of visitors seemed let-down by the site and suggested a full day in Bath instead. We have a weeks worth of accommodations already paid for in London, so staying overnight in Bath is out. My dilemma is that the cost of a train ticket to and from London is about the same as a tour ticket. At least with the tour you get free information, but the longest tour I've found is only 3-hours in Bath. Has anyone taken a day-trip that they'd recommend. Tour bus, train, or even car hire?
