Stonehenge, Salisbury and Avebury:

6000 years of culture - Neolithic, Bronze Age, Medieval, present day

Small Group Day Tours from the City of London



Stonehenge, Salisbury and Avebury Archaeologist Guided Tour (1 Day)

Guaranteed small groups 7 - 18 participants. 


 

Study the ‘Heart of Neolithic Britain’, the UNESCO World Heritage landscape of Stonehenge and Avebury.

Visit the Stonehenge 'builder's village' at Durrington Walls and Woodhenge, before enjoying a leisurely stroll around Stonehenge with our passionate, expert archaeologists.


Enjoy plenty of time to explore picturesque Salisbury. One of the most uplifting experiences in English architecture, Salisbury is unique among the Gothic cathedrals in England in that it was built on a virgin site and largely in a single campaign, 1220–58. The close is the finest in the country, and the town beyond has an extensive expanse of historic fabric. Discover the history and legacy of one of the world's most celebrated documents - Magna Carta. What did the document say, and how was it interpreted over the next 800 years? Why is it still important today, and how does it affect our culture, laws and rights?


Visit the largest man-made tumuli in Prehistoric Europe - Silbury Hill

Enter the 5500 year old Neolithic tomb at West Kennet

We finish by visiting the world's largest stone circle 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."
