A day tour of Stonehenge, Avebury, and England's quintessential countryside


This is QuintessentIal England.

We will drive in comfortable private transport to the West of England to visit the best Neolithic sites that England has to offer with lunch in a local pub right in the middle of the largest stone circle in the World. This title belongs not to Stonehenge but Avebury, an incredible site so large a village grew in the middle of it!

Journey through 5000 years of history, visit an old highway the same age as Stonehenge and see ancient figures carved into the hills by our forgotten ancestors. We will not only be visiting the major sites but stopping off at an iron age hill fort and points of interest along the way to make this a truly memorable day out from London.

We will cross fabled Ley lines, see Europes largest pyramid and walk inside an ancient burial mound, enjoyin the best countryside the West of England has to offer from our private transport.
