TOUR DURATION:5-6hrs (Approx.)
One of our most popular tours! Our London Cabbie Guide will collect you from your hotel, load your luggage and embark on a drive through the rolling hills of West England to the most famous prehistoric monument in the world, now a world heritage site. Stonehenge stands alone as it has done for thousands of years on the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back about 5000 years, and its exact alignment to the sun’s position during the Equinoxes has led people to believe it must have been a place of spiritual worship, particularly given the existence of other archaeological remains in the surrounding area. What was it really for? And how did the 40 ton bluestone rocks make the 150 mile journey from their original site so long ago? Was it an observatory for the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery? Come and unlock the secrets for yourself, and marvel at this remarkable ancient Monument. If there is enough time, we can even make a small detour (total time: 1 hour including a 20 minute walk on a public footpath) to view the exterior of Downton Abbey (Highclere Castle) or Bampton – the nearby village where much of the filming for the TV series took place!
Returning to London Heathrow Airport in ample time to take your flight.
