Departing from London

Your journey begins in the bustling heart of London, where you'll join this small group tour at Earls Court, easily accessible by public transport. As you board the comfortable coach, you'll meet your guide and a small group of fellow explorers and set off to the serene countryside of Wiltshire. On the way, your driver will share captivating insights, preparing you for the mystical experiences at Stonehenge, Avebury, and other Neolithic wonders you’ll encounter.

West Kennet Long Barrow and Silbury Hill

Your first stop on your journey into Britain's Neolithic past is West Kennet Long Barrow, one of the largest burial tombs in the country. Upon arrival, you’ll join your guide for a walk through its ancient chambers, dating back to 3650 BCE, and ponder the spiritual life of early civilizations. Nearby, you'll catch a view of Silbury Hill, the largest prehistoric human-made mound in Europe that continues to intrigue archaeologists and visitors alike with its mysterious origins and purpose.

The Ancient Stone Circles of Avebury

Next, your adventure continues to the quaint village of Avebury, encircled by the world’s largest stone circle. Your guide will lead a walking tour around the massive stones, sharing insights into their possible meanings and uses.

After the tour, enjoy free time to explore the village and embrace the quietness accompanying this lesser-visited wonder. Oh, and don't miss the chance to visit the Red Lion Pub, a perfect spot for a quintessentially British lunch, as well as the town's charming, if not eccentric, healing stone shop.

The Iconic Stonehenge

Now comes the highlight you've been anticipating—visiting the legendary Stonehenge. With your included ticket and audio guide, you're free to explore this ancient site at your leisure. Stand amidst these towering stones, immersing yourself in their mysterious origins and enigmatic purpose. You'll have around two hours to delve into the site's hidden wonders and captivating history.

Then, around 5:00 pm, you’ll regroup back at the coach for your return journey to London. Reflect on the day’s discoveries and enjoy the scenic drive through the English countryside. Upon arriving at the original starting point in Earls Court, your guide will be available to offer any needed public transport advice, rounding off a day rich in history, mystery, and memorable exploration.
