Stonehenge and one of England's glorious Cathedral cities with private transport and qualified Blue Badge guide.


We will firstly drive to Stonehenge to marvel at the Neolithic monument which has always defied coherent explanation and still baffles us today. The who, why and what of this amazing place will leave us with plenty to discuss.

We will then drive to nearby Salisbury with its Cathedral holding one of only four original copies of the Magna Carta or onto Winchester, capital of Wessex under King Alfred as he fought to unite the English against the Danes.

Or we could go to Bath and explore the Roman Baths and the Georgian splendour of this beautiful city.

Or, if you prefer, we could stay with pre-historic England and visit Avebury with its stone circles and mysterious Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow nearby.

Itinerary

This tour starts with Stonehenge. We depart between 8. 00 and 9. 00am to visit one of the most famous Neolithic sites in the world.

From there we now have a choice, within easy striking distance we have Winchester, King Alfred's Capital, Salisbury and Old Sarum, home of the Magna Carta, Bath, with its Roman remains and Georgian splendour or Avebury, Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow, burial site of an ancient chieftain. We are spoilt for choice in this lovely part of the world.

We then return to London and your hotel. This is a full day tour and the earlier we start the better.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will pick you up from your hotel.

End location: I will return you to your hotel or any reasonable drop-off point you might choose.

Duration: 9 hours

Like with many big cities we can sometimes be held up in traffic getting back into London.

Transportation

I drive a modern, comfortable, air-conditioned Mercedes E350 station wagon which seats 4 in addition to me. However, it should be borne in mind that this is a long day and it is more comfortable with 3 passengers.
