Head out of London on board your air-conditioned coach, and prepare to be greeted by the ancient enigma of Stonehenge. This fascinating stone circle has sat in the same spot on Salisbury plain for more than 5,000 years, yet nobody really knows why it is there or how it was constructed! It’s one of the most well-known sites in the world, and you can take your time, admiring it at your own pace on this independent afternoon trip from London.
Speculation about its purpose ranges from religious worship to studying the stars, so make sure you listen to your complimentary audio-guide to hear the different theories. See the beautiful Bluestone rocks on the inside of the circle, and wonder at how these 40-ton stones could have been transported and who could have carved them in such a distinctive way.
Make up your own mind on the mysteries surrounding Stonehenge, as you walk around the stone circle perimeter and marvel at this feat of engineering. You will have approximately one hour to spend at this UNESCO World Heritage Site, so make sure you bring your camera – you’ll have plenty of time to get shots from all angels.
If you are not looking to spend an entire day trip just to admire the famous rocks in a field, this is the perfect tour! For many, just seeing Stonehenge is on the bucket list and this tour is as quick as it could possibly be, given the two hour drive to the site. Plenty of time to see the stones and learn about their origin as well as grabbing some food, visiting the gift shop and seeing the exhibit. Our driver was entertaining and we were back in London in time to do some late afternoon sightseeing. Perfect!
It was a great tour, the driver was entertaining. Wish we had had another hour at Stonehedge itself.
But, it was a first great look at Stonehedge.
Great experience and wonderful services by the agency. Thank you.
A guided tour would have been better.
What an experience. I really enjoyed Stonehenge. It was so fascinating. If you want a quick tour to experience the stones and not spend the whole day, this is your tour. There was enough time to go through the entire audio tour and visit the small exhibitions too. We also had time to get a quick snack. Our driver was great and informative. He gave us a little bit of history on our way back too. The only downfall was that there were no more audio guides when we got there, which I read happened to a lot of others in their reviews. However, if you go down by the bathrooms, you can buy a very inexpensive audio guide before boarding the shuttle to the stones. It was about 3 pounds so we got two. I was really happy with this tour. After, there was plenty of time to still go out at night in London, which was important for us to not spent the whole day visiting just one place.
It was fine. Viator delivered but I was just not that impressed with Stonehenge. However I am certainly in the minority. It was 2.5 hours on a bus one way for less than an hour at the stones. Not for me.
The time allowed at the monument was too short. We had to wait for another shuttle to take us to the monument once we arrived at the main area, which was almost 45 minutes of our time. An extra 30 minutes would and #39;ve gone a long way!
Major confusion at Victoria station, no staff available to give info on departure.All info was provided via the audioguide on arrival.
The bus didn't leave on time and there's slight problem on the entrance tickets. Other then that it's ok
The allotted time, once we got to Stonehenge, was ridiculous. 1 hour is nowhere enough time to take the bus to and from the stones and see everything. I wasn't the only one upset, either.
