- Stonehenge, Salisbury & Avebury
- Stonehenge, Cotswold villages and Avebury Stone Circles
The History of Stonehenge
While the exact origins of Stonehenge are as mysterious as the monument itself, archaeologists date the structure back to around 3000 BC to 2000 BC. The collection of Sarsen stones are believed by many to represent an early form of astrology. Others take this belief into that of pagan celebrations, with the site playing a significant role within the Druid religion.
Stonehenge Tours and Day Trips
Although we currently have 30 sightseeing tours of Stonehenge and the surrounding areas, here are a selection of just some of those available.
This guided tour of Stonehenge will take in the very essence of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. With a 4-hour, small group tour and all entry costs included, learn about the history, myths and legends that surround this prehistoric monument.
One of the many great things about our Stonehenge gift vouchers are they can also incorporate other famous sites. Often within the same tour, as is the case here. So why not also take a guided tour of Salisbury Cathedral, as well as the city of Bath. This particular private tour can collect you from within London or elsewhere across the South East/West.
Our next guided tour of Stonehenge includes a trip to one of the oldest castles in the world. As well as including your entry price to the stones, you also get to visit the royal residency of Windsor Castle.
Here is another chance to get an insight into the other half live. While Stonehenge dates from an era not associated with wealth and possessions, Hampton Court Palace is somewhat of a contrast. Once home to Henry VIII you can explore where the King once lived, along with an impressive 60 acres of gardens.
This is another fantastic idea, where you can provide Stonehenge gift vouchers for someone genuinely interested in these mysterious rocks. As well as incorporating a guided tour of Stonehenge, it visits another famous stone circle at Avebury. The tour of Avebury will help piece together the myths and legends that surround both these ancient sites.
While the previous tour sets off from central London, this is ideal for those staying in or around Bath. Furthermore, as well as a guided tour of Stonehenge and Avebury Stone Circles, you will also come across various film locations along the way. Not only that, but the tour will call into the picturesque villages of the Cotswolds.
