After a short drive, arrive at the magnificent 13th-century Salisbury Cathedral, featuring one of the tallest spires in the country. Discover one of the oldest working clocks in Europe and the country’s best preserved original copy of the major constitution from 1215, the Magna Carta. Take time to explore the city and have lunch in one of the nearby restaurants (own expense).
Pass beautiful villages of thatch and flint while taking the back roads through Woodford Valley. Arrive at the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge. Here, your guide will share mysteries, theories and facts of this enigmatic site, and will enlighten you about the different building periods, the stones’ alignments and the people who worshipped here. Take time to absorb the powerful monument before continuing to other Stone Age sites in the area.
Go inside the 5,500-year-old Neolithic burial chamber of West Kennet Long Barrow and see the remains of the ancient people who once lived there. You will be stunned by the area’s landscape, including Silbury Hill – one of Europe's tallest prehistoric structures. Finally, visit the stone circles at Avebury. Sixteen times larger than Stonehenge, this historic location features more than 100 standing stones and a circumference so large that the village of Avebury fits inside! Explore the ancient stones and quaint village, with its thatched cottages and pub, before returning to London.

What a fantastic trip. I highly recommend the small group trips over the big coach trips where you feel like you are herded onto a cattle car. The small bus made for a much more manageble group for our tour guide. Tony was extremely knowledgeble and his humor made a long day fly by. We had only 10 in our bus and we quickly discovered that hanging around Tony was the best way to soak in the experience. My wife and I did a similar tour a few years ago with another group on the coaches and the small group was a much more pleasant and enriching experience.
