Stonehenge, Bath and Avebury from London by rental car

Jump to last reply

Hello! After deciding the dates and the amount of time in each place, I'm now working on the specifics of my family trip in next September-October.

We'll have six full days in London (first time!) and I want to see Stonehenge. I've read several topics about this day trip and, without a doubt, the most simple way to do it is to go with a tour by some company. This was my choice until I read that you can only go inside the stone circle at specific times (before and after the general public times) and, although some co. can arrange that, the cost seems a *little* expensive - from £35 in the normal tour (outside the circle) to £79+ with the inner circle access, even tough the entrance fee to the "park" is the same (£7.80)!

That said, I'm thinking that for a lesser amount of money than we would pay in the special tour (that is, £79x3 (me, my wife and our daughter), we could dump the tour, rent a car and make a little road trip, including some other cities in our way. These would be Bath and Avebury (to see some more stones!). I'm aware that to do this without a tour co., I must book directly with English Heritage, months in advance etc, but I think I'll try.

So, I have the following questions:

1. Do you recommend a busy day-trip like this?

2. From reading previous topics, it seems that the best place to get (and return) the car is Heathrow. Is this still the best option?

3. I want to book Stonehenge to the afternoon slot (18:30 hrs). So, I'm thinking in leave Heathrow very early, see Avebury in the morning, lunch in Bath and sightseeing trough the evening, and Stonehenge at 18:30 hrs. From there, directly to Heathrow. Is this the best route? Am I missing something great in the way?

Thank you for any input!
