This is a day of dramatic sights, from the towering spire of Salisbury Cathedral to the spellbinding stone configurations of Stonehenge and Avebury. The more relaxed nature of a small-group tour and fewer crowds of Avebury make it easier to get your fill!
Depart from a central London location in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic journey through the English countryside. Arrive at Old Sarum, an Iron Age hill fort shrouded in British history, and hear of the various cultural marks made on this primeval site.
Marvel at the impressive 11th-century castle and capture sweeping vistas of the Avon Valley before returning to the coach for the short drive to Salisbury, home to one of the world’s oldest working clocks and the country’s best-preserved copy of the Magna Carta. Gaze at the towering spire of the 13th-century Salisbury Cathedral and then enjoy some leisurely free time to explore and eat lunch (own expense).
Cruise past quaint English villages on your way to Stonehenge, an ancient monument that has mystified scholars for centuries. Hear theories behind the majestic stone ring as you absorb the mystic ambience of the area and capture photographs of the landmark.
Travel onward to West Kennet Long Barrow to delve into the history of a 5,500-year-old Neolithic burial chamber. Marvel at the spectacular landscape before becoming engrossed by the 100 enormous stones of Avebury, a landmark sixteen times larger than Stonehenge. Discover the quintessential village and then return to London, where the tour concludes.
