Tour Description

You’ll leave London on a comfortable private coach and travel through the picturesque English countryside to Salisbury Plains, home to the world-famous Stonehenge. Along the way, and your guide will give all the important facts plus a few lesser known gems so that when you arrive, you’re all set to explore and marvel at this ancient Druid site.

From here you’ll be taken directly by shuttle to the mystical henge where you can wander slowly soaking up the mystical energy that is known around the plains. This amazing and still somewhat incomprehensible site is believed to have been built anywhere between 3000 and 2000 B.C. The prehistoric stone circle and its surroundings is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and has recently been restored back to its original landscape. Your guide will explain the research and theories behind this amazing site to help you understand one of England’s greatest archaeological mysteries. 

You will have free time to visit the museum and the new visitor center. The new visitor center is just a short trip via shuttle bus from the monument, allowing visitors to ponder about the stories of how they may have been built and what they were once used for. Make sure to try out the interactive displays to learn about this phenomenon.

After your adventure you’ll return to London just in time for lunch, leaving plenty of time to explore the city in the afternoon.

FAQs

  • Can I touch the stones at Stonehenge?

    A few years ago, it was possible to get closer to the Stonehenge stones, however this natural heritage was getting damaged. To preserve the stones, visitors are now not permitted to touch the Stonehenge stones. You will see them from a distance of 10 yards at the closest, which, while protecting the site, still enables you to appreciate this amazing site and offers you wonderful photos opportunity.

  • How will I recognize the guide?

    Our City Wonders coordinators will be wearing blue polo shirts or jackets at the meeting point for easy recognition and holding a sign with the tour name.

  • When will I receive confirmation of my booking?

    You should expect to receive an email within minutes of booking with your confirmation voucher.
