Full description
Visit the mysterious Stonehenge and the World Heritage Site of Avebury. Head out from London on a full-day trip to King Arthur’s realm! Learn the facts and fiction about King Arthur and the mystical Isle of Avalon. Explore ancient stone circles in the Kingdom of Wessex, including Avebury and the iconic Stonehenge. The day begins as you make your way to Stonehenge. Your guide will tell you about the 5,000 years of Stonehenge history and about the theories and ideas that scholars continue to debate. Was the site an astronomical clock, a calendar, a place of worship, or a burial place for the elite? You can ponder the theories as you walk around the stones and admire the views. Continue west to Celtic lands, toward the Isle of Avalon and mystical Glastonbury. Stop at the famous Glastonbury Tor. Descend to the Chalice Well Gardens to hear about the legend of Joseph of Aramathea and the chalice from the Last Supper. Your final stop on this small group tour is the World Heritage Site of Avebury. Not just unusual due to its size (Avebury is home to the largest Stone Circle complex in the world), but also because it is the only Stone Circle with a village built in the middle of it. Here, enjoy a guided walk and some free time to explore this fascinating site before your return to London.

    Our guide Mark was great! This was an amazing tour. If you are pressed for time but want to see some of the most special places in England, this is the tour for you! I would’ve loved more time at any of the three sites but I just feel lucky to have gotten to visit them in the first place. It isn’t easy getting to Glastonbury or Avebury without a tour, and this tour allowed for you to see both while also getting to see Stonehenge. All around a great tour!!

    The experience was amazing. The bus ride was very comfortable. Mike the tour guide was extremely polite, knowledgeable and friendly. I would absolutely do it all again. Made new friends on the bus and great conversation. I have already referred friends. We couldn't go to Glastonbury because of music festival and rail strike happening, so instead we got taken to Bath... and wow! What an experience... So happy to go to see Bath, its historically magical and worth it.

    Stonehage and Glastonbury joined this tour because they wanted to go so much. Stonehage also has a Japanese audio guide. Unfortunately, the rain was terrible, but it was a memorable experience. The guides and bus drivers were kind and grateful. I can only speak English. Participants of the tour also had a gentle and fun time. The last one has been a bit quick, but I'm satisfied.
