With a newly constructed visitor centre, your visit will allow you to see how these stones were brought here as well as allow you to go back in time to see how life was when Stonehenge was being built with interactive exhibitions.

Bath has been a World Heritage Site since 1987 and a place whose history dates back to before Roman times. It was here that the Romans built baths and a temple around the surrounding hot springs. During Georgian times, Bath saw major expansion which led to stunning Georgian architecture being built using Bath Stone which gives the colour to most of the building in the city.
