What You Can Expect

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

Day Trip to Salisbury, Stonehenge and Avebury

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.

Very engaging tour guide/driver. Salisbury and Stonehenge were very interesting to see and we had a nice time walking around the area. Avebury was a good and leisurely last stop. It was a fair amount of driving to get to each place but reasonably paced.

An absolutely wonderful day! Our guide, Tony, was very knowledgeable and extremely personable! Even though it was cold and drizzly, to be expected in November in England, the tour was memorable. Old Sarum, Salisbury Cathedral the Magna Carta, Stonehenge, and Avebury - what a wonderful mix of history! We highly recommend this tour, and Tony!!!!

Small group, Driver was great. Knowledgeable.
Stonehenge is amazing, Salisbury has the Magna Carta.
Avebury has different shapes of stones than Stonehenge,
as well as a nice little pub for a pint.

We had the best time on this tour. Tony, our Tour Guide, was so knowledgable, insightful, and funny. We so enjoyed listening to him throughout the day. His insights brought incredible depth to our experience. The sights were stunning, from the beauty of the Salisbury Cathedral and the historical significance of the Magna Carta, to the magnificence of Stonehenge with its stark setting in the middle of lush green fields, to the approachable and touchable stone circles of Avebury. We would definitely take this tour again. Our weather was sunny and quite warm, so you might want to bring along some sunscreen.

Small group nice van, and David was a WONDERFUL guide--extremely knowledgeable and conversant without being annoying (as some guides can be). Loved Old Sarum, Salisbury, Stonehenge, and Avebury. I just don't know how the trip could have been nicer. And since it was my birthday--David had everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to me--What a way to celebrate!
