If you're going to be based in London, the most convenient route to both Bristol and would be by train from Paddington station, the standard station
for points west of London, including Oxford.
The stop for Stonehenge would be Salisbury, worth time in itself.
But a visit to Stonehenge, for example, would really demand a two-nght stay in the area, so that you could go sight-seeing in the full day between
The same would apply to any visits at any distance from London, which is why i suggested a couple of places near enough for day-trips.
England is not really a "short hops by air" culture, so you need to be conscious of the time factor for road and rail travel.
PS Having just checked, Salisbury trains leave from Waterloo station, so I've just edited it out of the list of places you reach from Paddington.
Times by rail;
Oxford one hour from London (a very small city, colleges concentrated in one area- that would be good for a day-trip)
Salisbury, two hours.
