Following a pickup from central London, hop aboard your air-conditioned coach and settle in for the 2.5-hour journey west to the UNESCO-World Heritage–listed site of Stonehenge. Nobody truly knows the origins of this ancient stone circle, but with a history shrouded in mystery it remains one of England’s top visitor attractions.
On arrival at the site, pick up your free audio guide and begin exploring independently. Listen to the various theories behind the stones’ curious formation and imagine the uses to which the site could have been put 5,000 years ago.
During your 1-hour visit, stroll around the 40-ton stones and wonder how they could possibly have been carried here those thousands of years ago. Capture the rock formation through the lens of your camera and admire the bluestone rocks in the interior of the circle. With the evidence laid out before you, come to your own conclusions regarding their significance to the site.
When it’s time to leave Stonehenge behind, hop back aboard your coach for the return journey to London, where your tour will come to an end.
