Archaeologist Guided Small-Group Day Tours   "Tour Leaders are Archaeologists"
 

 

TOUR INCLUSION:

Britian's most beautiful landscapes
Walk the paths of ritual specialists and builders of Britain's most fascinating and awe-inspiring prehistoric sites, at Stonehenge and Avebury.
Visit one of England's most impressive Cathedrals at Salisbury.
Guaranteed small groups 8 - 18 participants.


Leaving from London by luxury bus, this Stonehenge tour will explore its iconic standing stones with expert analysis by a trained archaeologist. Nearby Avebury is an even more impressive site, covering a much wider area and you will also encounter Neolithic burial tombs and the less visited ancient site of Woodhenge.

Mid-day is spent in the Medieval city of Salisbury, home to the finest example of Early English Gothic Architecture, Salisbury Cathedral.

The morning starts with a visit to Durrington Walls and Woodhenge, home to the 'Stonehenge Builder's' village and the most convincing evidence for human sacrifice. We then travel a short distance to Stonehenge. We enjoy a leisurely paced walk through the landscape immediately surrounding Stonehenge, visiting the Stonehenge Cursus, Bronze Age burial mounds and walk along the Stonehenge Avenue. We complete our morning at Stonehenge with a guided walk around the stone circle, our archaeologists bringing to life this enigmatic, ancient and mysterious monument.

At mid-day we arrive at the beautiful Medieval city of Salisbury. Here we allow our guests aprox 1.5 hours to enjoy the centre of this city, famous for it's cathedral. We also use this opportunity for our guests to have lunch.

The Afternoon is spent at the Avebury World Heritage Landscape. We visit Silbury Hill, the largest man-made hill in prehistoric Europe. We enter the 5500 year old burial chamber of West Kennet Long Barrow, entering a sacred space originally reserved only for ritual specialists and the dead.

We finish by visiting the largest stone circle in Europe at Avebury, with its beautiful medieval village situated inside. As John Aubrey in the 1600's notes [Avebury]..."does as much exceed in greatness the so renowned Stonehenge as a Cathedral doeth a parish church."

These are Archaeology Tours, and as a result we believe we offer an excellent up-to-date specialist service; giving you the opportunity to learn in great detail about these amazing prehistoric sites, but also leaving you time to explore your surroundings by yourself.

Owned by qualified archaeologists and our tour leaders are all qualified archaeologists, offering the most professional service possible.

Please be aware that the Stonehenge, Salisbury and Avebury Archaeology Tour entails walking between sites. We advise you to bring appropriate footwear for walking over different terrains (including fields) and appropriate clothing (as British weather can be unpredictable at the best of times).

Please also note as part of the Stonehenge, Salisbury and Avebury Archaeologist Guided Tour, the detailed walk around the Stonehenge Cursus, Stonehenge Avenue and Bronze Age burial mounds only runs between March to October, this is due to time restrictions in the winter months
