Your FAQs

All of your questions answered here.

  • Why should I see Stonehenge with Scarper Tours from Bath?

    The City Of Bath is a perfect gateway for a visit to Stonehenge; not only will you have time to explore the beautiful Georgian city but the journey from Bath to Stonehenge travels through lovely countryside with lots to see on the way. Scarper Tours make this short journey as memorable as the stones, with an interesting commentary en route from your driver/guide. Our tour is the only direct route to Stonehenge from Bath which makes it perfect for those on a day trip with time at a premium and for those staying in Bath for a few days who want a short escape from the city.

  • Do I need to book this tour in advance? How do I book?

    Yes. Our Stonehenge Tour is very popular so we strongly recommend that you make a reservation in advance to avoid disappointment.
    The easiest way is through our on-line booking system. Simply follow the BOOK TOUR instructions. Payment is secure and made through Paypal although you do not need a Paypal account to complete this transaction, you can pay with your credit card. Alternatively, you can book through the Bath Tourist Information Centre once you arrive in the city.
    If you have any problems making an online reservation please drop us an email at sally@scarpertours.com.

  • Which ticket option should I choose?

    Most people will require the 'Tour and Stonehenge Entrance' option, which will provide return transport and a Stonehenge entry ticket, at a discounted price.

    The 'Tour Only' option is only for members of English Heritage or National Trust who can enter free, or for those with pre-paid Stonehenge entry tickets.

    A student is anyone who can show a valid Student ID card on the day of travel.
    A Senior is anyone aged 60 years or over.

  • Can I see Stonehenge without an entrance ticket?

    You cannot see Stonehenge without an entrance ticket. Stonehenge has a new visitor centre which is located 1.5 miles from the stones. Only visitors with a valid ticket for their specific day can visit the monument.

    Scarper Tours has been given a daily allocation of tickets with guaranteed entrance for our customers. Not only this, but our customers will also save money by purchasing the combined 'Tour and Entrance' ticket, when compared to the regular Stonehenge admission price.

  • Where and when do I meet the bus?

    The tour departs from the very centre of Bath near the Huntsman Pub and the Abbey Hotel on Terrace Walk. This is very close to most city hotels and only a 5 minute walk from the train and bus stations. We are unable to collect from individual hotels but Bath is a small city and our pick up/drop off point is close to local bus stops and the main city taxi rank.
    Please ensure that you arrive at the pick-up point 10 minutes before the departure time. We have an allocated arrival time at Stonehenge so it is very important for us to leave on time.

  • What should I do if I miss the bus?

    Please understand that we will never leave early if passengers are absent, but we must depart promptly to ensure we make our appointed arrival slot at Stonehenge.
    If you are unable to reach our departure point on time, or have already missed the bus please notify us at sally@scarpertours.com
    If possible, we will try to move your booking to the next available departure, but cannot offer a refund in this situation.

  • What do I need to bring with me?

    Please bring your booking confirmation details and Student / Membership cards (if applicable) with you on the day. Booking confirmation can be printed if you wish or displayed on your mobile device.
    English weather can be unpredictable so please come prepared. Stonehenge is normally a little cooler than the city, so an extra layer of clothing can be a good idea, especially in the winter.
    If you intend to take our tour upon arrival or departure, then you are welcome to bring your luggage with you.
    Don't forget your camera!

  • Is this tour suitable for everyone?

    The tour is suitable for people of all ages and nationalities, whether travelling independently or with friends.
    However, due to insurance regulations concerning child seats, our minimum age for this tour is 3 years.
    Sightseeing at Stonehenge does require some walking, but is generally suitable for the elderly and less mobile. Please note that our vehicles do not have wheelchair access.
    Stonehenge does not permit dogs, except guide dogs.

  • What language will the commentary be in?

    Commentary from the driver will be in English. Audio guides at Stonehenge are available in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Dutch, Polish, Japanese and Chinese.

  • How long will I be at Stonehenge for?

    We will be at Stonehenge for approx. 2 hours. For the majority of visitors, this is the perfect amount of time, allowing time to explore the stones and to visit the attractions at the Visitor Centre.

  • How do I cancel or change the time of my tour?

    If you need to cancel your tour please let us know by email at sally@scarpertours.com. Cancellations notified 3 days or more before departure will receive a full refund minus a £5 pound administration fee per booking. Cancellations notified less than 3 days before departure are non-refundable.

    When you have completed the booking process you will be sent a receipt email from Paypal and a confirmation email from Scarper Tours with your booking details. This will be sent to the email address that was entered on the booking form. If you cannot find this email, please check the junk/spam box as they can sometimes be automatically sorted to this folder.

  • Do you ever cancel tours?

    We never cancel tours due to low passenger numbers or wet weather.
