SHADOWS OF STONEHENGE PRIVATE TOURS – TYPICAL ITINERARY
Your driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at the specified time. We recommend 8am. After a fast-route from London, our Shadows of Stonehenge Private Tours take us back in time and deep into the county of Wiltshire, and the area of mysterious monuments surrounding the enigmatic Stonehenge.
UNEXPLAINED KENNETT & SILBURY
We view the largest prehistoric burial mound in the country, the West Kennet Long Barrow. Skeletons of the ancient were laid in its chambers. Nearby, Silbury Hill is the world’s largest man-made prehistoric mound. Strangely conical in shape, it has kept its secrets as to its use or meaning.
A personally guided tour of this spooky village locked-in by the largest stone circle in Britain. Discover the Devil’s Chair, where the dark one himself may be summoned, or the murderous Barber Stone, which exacted a terrible revenge on a villager who tried knock it down.
Your driver-guide will suggest appropriate lunch options on the day. Perhaps a tea-room, restaurant or traditional pub. Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch or just grab a sandwich. It’s your tour, it’s your choice. (Note: Shadows of Stonehenge Private Tours price does not include food or refreshments).
Journeying south, we discuss the huge ancient chalk carvings that decorate the slopes of local hills. Soon, we reach Woodhenge and the ancient settlement of Durrington Walls. Latest finds from recent digs around this area will help us theorise on the meaning of the landscape.
Our day reaches its climax as with a personally guided tour of the mysterious Stonehenge, an ancient megalithic structure older than the pyramids of Egypt, and a rare survivor of the pre-historic world. Of course, one of the greatest mysteries is how on Earth did they get there?
Note: We recommend tickets for Shadows of Stonehenge Private Tours are bought in advance to avoid lines. We can book them for you if you wish.
