London Stonehenge Trip

Postcard of Stonehenge with caption Stonehenge Rocks

London to Stonehenge is one of our most popular trips – and definitely the most mysterious. You’ll get to see ancient stones with meanings that still remain hidden after thousands of years – and enormous monuments that have puzzled generations of archeologists. Plus there’s everything from shopping to spring water to keep you interested and entertained…

Stonehenge

Stonehenge

Stonehenge is the most famous and enigmatic historical site in the country. Developed in stages over a 5,000 year period, the giant standing stones weigh up to 50 tonnes and dominate the landscape of Salisbury Plain. Was it a ceremonial temple… or built by aliens? You decide.

Marlborough

Our tours usually begin with a visit to the historic town of Marlborough, which recently celebrated its 800th birthday. The High Street has a wonderful example of a merchant’s house, built after the Great Fire of Marlborough in 1653.

Avebury stone circle

Avebury stone circle

This mysterious stone circle is situated on ley lines – and you can get up close to the rocks (if you don’t mind the odd sheep!). It’s enormous, with the outer circle almost a mile in diameter. If you are lucky you may spot a crop circle nearby. They appear 'as if by magic' in the fields around here…

Silbury Hill

This imposing hill is the largest man-made mound in Europe. It covers an amazing five acres and soars up to 130 feet. It was built around 2500BC… but why? Local legend has it that the mound was built as part of a plot to outwit the devil. Other say it is an ancient monument. It’s just one of many mysteries presented by this extraordinary area.

Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury

Close by is Salisbury, a beautiful medieval city built on a prehistoric site. See the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral which boasts the tallest spire in Britain. Built between 1220 and 1280, the Cathedral still holds one of the original copies of Magna Carta.

The Royal Crescent, Bath

Bath

Bath is a spectacular Roman city with hot springs (that are still in use today) and a beautiful Cathedral. Treat yourself to a relaxing thermal treatment at a luxury rooftop spa, or wander through the maze of 18th century Georgian streets with boutiques and fashionable restaurants.

OR

Winchester Cathedral

Winchester

Once the capital of England, Winchester is a wonderful place to visit. There’s a fine Norman cathedral, and quaint streets that wind their way up to the 13th century castle where you can see a huge oak table - legend has it that this is King Arthur's Round Table, a symbol of medieval mythology.
