Stonehenge and Avebury

London from £610

The Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site designation recognizes the international importance of  these Wiltshire sites. The iconic giant standing stone circle at Stonehenge is the centrepiece of an extensive prehistoric ceremonial landscape including a processional avenue, a sacred river, a feasting site, and groups of burial mounds, not to mention even earlier Neolithic features in the landscape.  You will hear how exciting new discoveries in recent years have led to revised theories about the way these monuments were used.  Avebury's large stone circle within a massive ditch and bank also lies at the heart of a landscape rich in prehistoric remains.  We can enter a stone-chambered Neolithic burial mound, and see the largest prehistoric man-made hill in Europe, before driving up a processional avenue lined with standing stones to the heart of Avebury.  There may even be time to see archaeological finds at the Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes.

WEATHER, CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT

Atlantic and continental weather systems meet over England so the weather can be unpredictable.  You really can experience all four seasons in a day!  We advise you to bring wet weather clothing, and cold weather clothing for the months of October to March.  We keep a set of umbrellas in our vehicle.  Please check the forecast on the Met Office link below shortly before your tour.  To get the most from this tour you'll want to get out of the car and do some walking, so a pair of all-weather walking shoes would be a good idea.
