Tour Details

  • Explore Neolithic England
  • Avebury Megaliths
  • West Kennet Long Barrow
  • Stonehenge after hours
  • Special access to the Inner Circle
  • The ancient wonder at sunset
  • Learn the mysteries and theories of Stonehenge

After meeting your local Stonehenge guide near Earl's Court in London, you'll hop on board a luxury minivan or coach for the drive into the English countryside. With small or mid-sized group of no more that 30 fellow travelers, you'll begin to explore pre-Roman Britain, visiting the Avebury Megaliths and Neolithic sites at West Kennet and Long Barrow. In Avebury, you'll have free time for lunch and can visit the famously haunted Red Lion pub! After Stonehenge closes its gates to regular tourists, you'll have special access to enter the site around sunset.

Have you ever wondered how Stonehenge was built? To this day historians and archaeologists cannot agree. Whether it was built as a Celtic Druid burial site or something more extraterrestrial, visiting Stonehenge after hours lets you experience the site at its best, and you'll even have access to the Inner Circle that’s closed to daytime tourists.

Start Your Journey from London

Beginning in central London, near to Earl's Court, your luxury coach will bring you through the countryside the heart of pre-historic Britain. Travelling in a comparatively small group of no more than 30 people, you'll be joined by an engaging local guide who will be sharing stories and theories about the ancient site you'll see throughout the day.

Silbury Hill and West Kennet

Like the grand stone circle at Stonehenge, the man-made mound of Silbury Hill is rife with mystery. Similarly sized to the Great Pyramids in Egypt, it's impossible to know the true reason behind what would have been a monumental construction project, especially given the tools available when it was built over 4,000 years ago!

At West Kennet Long Barrow, you'll visit an ancient burial ground and chambers that are thought to date back over 5,000 years. Listen as your guide explains how these chambers give insight into Neolithic life in Britain.

Avebury Monoliths, and Free Time for Lunch

At Avebury, you'll find a smaller set of ancient stone circles, similar in age to that of Stonehenge. You'll stop here for some free time to explore charming Avebury village or have a tasty late lunch at the famous (and possibly haunted) Red Lion Pub.

Lunch is not included in the price of this tour, but your guide will have several recommendations to choose from.

Stonehenge Inner Circle Tour at Dusk

The grand finale of the day is a tour of Stonehenge and its Inner Circle after it closes to the general public. As your guide explains the mysteries and theories surrounding Stonehenge's meaning and construction, you can get up close to the great triliths and imagine people putting these 25-ton structures into place without the help of any machinery.

You'll also get special access to enter the Inner Circle that's off-limits to daytime visitors, where you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and imagine the Druid rituals that may have occurred here.

After leaving Stonehenge, your driver will be waiting to take you back to London in time for bed!
