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.

This tour was everything I had hoped for. The guide was very knowledgeable and the bus ride was extremely comfortable! I loved seeing Stonehenge and learning more about it. We were actually upgraded to a trip that also included a visit to Bath for the afternoon, since not enough people signed on for the trip to Stonehenge alone. It was an awesome day! The town of Bath is completely decked out for Christmas and had an outdoor Christmas market in many streets. The Roman Baths and Museum were something very interesting to see. This is a great day trip from London.

Perfect...exactly what we wanted! We're not a fan of touring with a group, so this was perfect for our family of 3 adults. The amount of time we spent at Stonehenge was perfect...plenty of time to walk the grounds and go through the gift shop before returning to the bus.

Definitely worth having someone drive us out from London as it was pretty far plus traffic! Make sure you get in the right line to get on to the shuttle bus. There's one for prebooked groups and another for individuals. Would recommend the audio tour. Our bus driver also gave us good insight and knowledge as he was driving through the city.

We had an absolutely lovely time. The coach driver was amazing and so funny! He had lots of great information for us along the way but also let us rest a little while too. We had the right amount of time at Stonehenge and the go at your own pace was the best. Nice visitor's area for a bite to eat and lovely gift shop. Highly recommend this trip for a wonderful afternoon.
