Explore the mysterious stone circle of Stonehenge and the Neolithic timber posts of Woodhenge on a full-day historical tour from Glastonbury, and continue to the pretty village of Avebury, partially enclosed by a prehistoric stone circle.
What to Expect
Immerse yourself in the mysterious pre-history of English heritage on a full-day tour of the stone and timber circles of Stonehenge, Woodhenge, and Avebury on this scenic trip from Glastonbury.
Exploring more than 6,000 years of history, the tour first goes to the mystical standing stones of Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain. It’s an approximate 1-hour drive to the site, so relax and enjoy the views of the Somerset and Wiltshire countryside.
The exact purpose of the stones remain a mystery to archaeologists and historians, but your guide will attempt to explain some of the theories behind one of the most famous sites in the world.
Continue to the Neolithic timber posts of Woodhenge to explore the many burrows and postholes. It’s another 1-hour drive to Avebury from here, allowing more views of pretty English landscape.
Marvel at the immense standing stones circle surrounding the village, and walk part of the Serpent Path. Go to the artificial chalk mound of Silbury Hill, similar in size to some of the smaller Egyptian pyramids of the Giza Necropolis. Discover the Neolithic tomb of West Kennet Long Barrow before the scenic drive back to Glastonbury.
