Stonehenge Early Access

Built to line up with the sunrise on the solstice, the start of the day is definitely the best time for the wonder that is Stonehenge. With our privileged access, enter the inner circle of Stonehenge nearly 90 minutes before the general public.

Without the massive crowds, get up and close to the great triliths built into a perfect circle. Discuss the theories and science discovered regarding the site, learning how it might have been created.

At 13 by 7 ft and weighing nearly 25 tons each, it's shocking to wonder how this impressive structure could have been erected without the help of machines. Obverse the stones in awe taking in the stories of pagan spirituality and grandeur that make Stonehenge so mysterious.

Salisbury Cathedral

After visiting the ancient marvel that is Stonehenge, head to a bit more modern period of British history. Not far from Stonehenge you will find the small city of Salisbury.

In Salisbury, visit the 13th Century Gothic Cathedral home to the tallest church spire in the UK. Also, take a look at an original copy of the Magna Carta. The famous document from 1215 is one of the great symbols of freedom and individual rights.

A dream come true!

Growing up I always wanted to see Stonehenge after studying in in school. It always intrigued me! Taking this tour was a dream come true and I savored every moment of it. Getting in early before there were a lot of people made it even more magical. I will be back again on the solstice and would take this tour in a heartbeat.
