About The English Bus
#1 rated small group day tours from London, max 16 passengers. Tours to Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, The Cotswolds, Stratford on Avon, Belgium and more. We go off the beaten track and follow scenic routes that the big buses can't and you get the personal attention from your extremely passionate, articulate, knowledgeable and personable guide that you cannot get in a larger tour group. Small family run business, we care about each and every guest we take on tour. Don't get lost in the crowd - guaranteed small groups for an unforgettable tour experience! All tours start in central London - our Bath and Stonehenge tour departs daily, Our Cotswolds, Oxford, Stratford tour departs Wednesdays and Sundays and our Canterbury, Dover Cliffs and Castle tour every Friday. Bruges day tour departs once a month. Come join us!

Stonehenge and Bath are two of Southern England’s most in-demand destinations, as well as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. On this intimate, small-group tour, you’ll have ample opportunity to get up close and personal with both. Round-trip coach transportation from central London, in the company of a guide, makes logistics simple, while the addition of a secret stop—revealed on the day of the tour—adds some spontaneity to your journey.
