Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

The guide shares fascinating stories and legends that bring the mystical sites on this day trip to life. One of my favorite parts is seeing Avebury -- it's just as well-preserved and intriguing as Stonehenge but less crowded, and you're allowed to touch the massive stones!

What You Can Expect

Small-Group Day Trip to Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury from London

Day Trip to Stonehenge, Avebury and Glastonbury

After hotel pickup in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan, admire the English countryside as you travel towards the ancient Kingdom of Wessex, to one of England’s most mysterious landmarks. Get acquainted with the mystifying history of Stonehenge as you listen to illuminating commentary from your expert guide. 

On arrival at Salisbury Plain, home of Stonehenge, feel your curiosity swell as you behold a landscape scattered with stone circles and burial chambers more than 5,000 years old. Hear theories surrounding the purpose of the mysterious landscape and stroll the scenic grounds while capturing sweeping countryside vistas on camera. 

Next, travel to the small and serene town of Glastonbury, the place that King Arthur’s sword was reputedly created. Delve into the region’s rich historical heritage with your guide and ascend to the summit of Glastonbury Tor to see landmarks like St Michael’s Church from the hilltop perch. Stroll the Chalice Well Gardens to discover the biblical legends that shroud the enclave and then revitalize with lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). 

Sated, head to Glastonbury Abbey to pay your respects to King Arthur and Queen Guinevere in their final resting places. Venture to the Neolithic monument of Avebury, an ancient complex that boasts the title of Europe’s largest, and explore the atmospheric stone rings with your guide. Conclude your tour with a visit to Silbury Hill, Europe’s tallest prehistoric mound, and then relax during the return journey to London, where the tour concludes.

I went to Stonehenge 25 years ago, but this time is better for me, because now I understand english better. And Visiting to Glastonbury and Avebury was my dream. With this tour I did everything in one day, learning history a lot from very nice guide. He was very kind and know a lot. I am very impressed.

This was an amazing tour. I loved everything about it - the coach was super comfortable, and our tour guide, Greg Truman, was funny and nice, and full of fun tidbits about where we went, and just lots of other turns a it the UK. Highly recommended!

This tour was everything I was hoping it to be. Our guide sorry can't remember his name at the moment was informative, kind and helpful. He had great historic information as well as the spiritual history and meanings of the sites. We felt that we were in good hands.Everything was well organized with plenty of time to enjoy each location. The sites themselves are not to be missed. This was a major highlight of our 3 week trip to Europe. We used Viator for other parts of our trip and were equally pleased.

Stunning! Magnificent, no superlatives comes close to how I felt about this trip! But i'm sure it's not for everyone! David our guide had a passion for history so was easy to get caught up in his enthusiasm! Great day that will be forever remembered.

Absolutely fantastic day in the English countryside. Driver David was lovely, informative and didn't cut any time out of our tour at all. We got stuck in traffic in the morning, but he just said 'we'll be home a bit late.' and was completely relaxed about it.
Avebury was in my opinion better than Stonehenge, because you could walk amongst the stones. In Stonehenge you can't. It's something to consider if you want to actually walk up close to the monument.
Totally enjoyed the day, as did my father and grandfather.
