An Iconic symbol of Britain, a walk around the Stone Circle is the centrepiece of any visit to the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site.
With a history spanning 4,500 years Stonehenge has many different meanings to people today. It is a wonder of the world, a spiritual place and a source of inspiration.
The Stone Circle is a masterpiece of engineering, and building it would have taken huge effort from hundreds of well-organised people using only simple tools and technologies.
Wander around the Neolithic houses outside the visitor centre and step inside to imagine how people lived 4,500 years ago.
Avebury henge and stone circles are one of the greatest marvels of prehistoric Britain. Built and much altered during the Neolithic period, roughly between 2850 BC and 2200 BC, the henge survives as a huge circular bank and ditch, encircling an area that includes part of Avebury village. Within the henge is the largest stone circle in Britain - originally of about 100 stones - which in turn encloses two smaller stone circles.
Avebury is part of an extraordinary set of Neolithic and Bronze Age ceremonial sites that seemingly formed a vast sacred landscape.
West Kennet Long Barrow is one of the largest, most impressive and most accessible Neolithic chambered tombs in Britain. Built in around 3650 BC, it was used for a short time as a burial chamber, nearly 50 people being buried here before the chambers were blocked. West Kennet Long Barrow is rarely visited and there is a superb view of the English Countryside from the hilltop where the barrow is situated.
Silbury Hill is the largest artificial mound in Europe, mysterious Silbury Hill compares in height and volume to the roughly contemporary Egyptian pyramids. Probably completed in around 2400 BC, it apparently contains no burial. Though clearly important in itself, its purpose and significance remain unknown.
Travel time from Central London to Stonehenge is 2hours but may vary dependant on traffic.
A job well done! I hope this message brings a smile to your face in knowing your efforts and care had an amazing impact on making lasting memories of our English experience in the country.
We had a truly amazing experience! Every detail was attended to and the whole adventure was complete perfection. Much thanks to you for dealing with all of our schedule changes and moving parts.
Thank you so much for organising such a splendid and successful day on Friday last, we and all our guests so much enjoyed the day and experience.
I would recommend you to anyone, your service cannot be faulted
Everything was splendid. We very much appreciate your fast action in setting up the day. Could not have enjoyed ourselves more thanks to you.
We are back in the US, and yes, we had a FABULOUS time! All of our drivers and guides were friendly and prompt. Our guides were very knowledgeable, very personable, and just terrific (we especially enjoyed our Windsor guide). Even our two teenagers didn’t get bored! I think we picked all of the right sites to see, and for the right lengths of time. We had perfect weather every day as well. All in all, everything was wonderful, and we appreciate all of your help in designing the tours and time frames. Overall, the dining was fabulous as well. So again, thank you for all of your help…I think it was our favourite family trip that we’ve taken, and we made some fabulous memories!
