What You Can Expect

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

Day Trip to Stonehenge, Avebury and Glastonbury

After hotel pickup in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan, travel through the English countryside toward the ancient Kingdom of Wessex, to one of England’s most mysterious landmarks. Learn about the mystifying history of Stonehenge as you listen to commentary from your guide.  

Begin the tour in the former capital of the Kingdom of Wessex, Winchester, and enter the Great Hall built between 1222 and 1235. Inside, see what many people believed to be King Arthur's original Round Table. In medieval times, Sir Thomas Mallory—the writer and author of Le Morte D'Arthur—swore by its authenticity and identified Winchester as being the site of King Arthur's Camelot.

Next stop is Salisbury Plain, home to Stonehenge. Look out on a landscape scattered with stone circles and burial chambers more than 5,000 years old, and hear theories surrounding the mysterious scene. You'll also have time to stroll the grounds and take photos.

Continue to the small town of Glastonbury, where King Arthur’s sword was reputedly created. Delve into the region’s rich history with your guide and ascend to the summit of Glastonbury Tor to see landmarks such as St. Michael’s Church from the hilltop.

Stroll the Chalice Well Gardens to discover the biblical legends that shroud the enclave and then break for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). Head to Glastonbury Abbey to pay your respects to King Arthur and Queen Guinevere in their final resting places. Then relax during the return journey to London, where the tour concludes.

Tony was our driver and he was wonderful! Great information and kept us on schedule so we got to see everything in a timely manner. Food shop he recommended was so tasty! Overall I would tell anyone wanting to see Stonehenge to take this option as you get to see more than one Henge and Avebury was very interesting.

A really fun day, with great sites. Our tour guide, Oz, was fantastic. I and #39;ve been on a few different tours in the UK, and Oz was by far the best informed guide I and #39;ve had (I actually left with a recommended reading list). He also went out of his way to help a tour member who was struggling physically.

Excellent tour. Tony was very informative, entertaining and helpful. While I wish there could have been a bit more time at the various sites, at least getting to SEE them was a plus. We had good weather as well, which always makes for a good experience.

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.
