What You Can Expect

London to Stonehenge Shuttle Bus & Independent Day Trip

Stonehenge, England

Select your preferred departure time, and join up with your air-conditioned coach in central London. Then, sit back and relax as you set off on your approximately 2-hour drive to Stonehenge.

Rising from vast Salisbury Plain, this spectacular ancient monument dates back some 4,500 years. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1986, it centers on a ring of giant standing stones and is generally believed to have served as a prehistoric temple that marked out the movements of the sun, although its purpose is still wreathed in conjecture.

As you travel, hear interesting facts about this iconic place and its long-ago spiritual importance from your informative driver. Then, on arrival, collect your included entrance tickets and audio-guide, and enjoy ample free time to explore the Stonehenge site and visitor center, whose facilities include exhibitions and a café, as you wish.

Perhaps ride the visitor shuttle or follow walkways to the monument to view it close up. Marvel at this prehistoric masterpiece, and meander around the perimeter as you ponder how the stones were transported here, and then raised and used.

Stroll around the visitor center to learn how and why Stonehenge was built through the cutting-edge audiovisuals and stunning collections of ancient exhibits, including stone axes and burial treasures. Be sure, too, to view the replica Neolithic houses to discover how the Neolithic peoples of the area lived and worked.

After nearly two hours of exploring, reconvene with your coach and relax on your ride back to London. Your trip then ends with a drop-off at the original starting point.

Great day-trip to visit an iconic UNESCO site! Our driver was extremely professional and informative. Electronic audio guides were provided to us at the site giving you the freedom to move at your own pace while also providing you with the history and insight your looking for.

Just as stated - a shuttle and independent tour, We aren't much for guided tours so this was perfect. The shuttle picked us up at our hotel, which was an unexpected bonus. The driver was very pleasant. I would note the bus was not air conditioned and it was an unseasonably warm day for early May! There was adequate time to tour the stones and the visitor center. Would definitely recommend this tour as an economical way to visit Stonehenge, a must-see if visiting London! Drop off was convenient at Victoria station.

Loved getting to go see Stonehenge from London. The trip was quick and easy, and we had plenty of time to enjoy the stones, the audio tour, and the gift shop before heading back. Only downside was we could NOT understand our driver's accent, heh.
