Full description
Some religions today, like Christianity and Wicca, have been influenced by Druidry. Circles were key to many Druid beliefs; the circle of life, the seasons, light and darkness. On the first stop, you will explore remains of the Uffington Castle and mysterious Neolithic White Horse. You will drive towards Barbury Castle, a strategically placed hill fort that served defensive forces from the Iron Age up until the 20th century.

On your journey, you will discover the Cherhill White Horse, the second oldest in Wiltshire being cut in 1780, possibly inspired by the horse at Westbury cut two years earlier. Continue your trip towards the most famous stone circle in Britain - Stonehenge, an ancient megalithic monument dating back to about 2400 B.C. Most people’s first thoughts about the Druids might be of them congregating around Stonehenge and casting magical incantations. There is indeed thought that this was a place of worship for them, as it still is today for pagans and other neo-druids.

After you explore this druid site, you will travel towards the most massive artificial mound in Europe, mysterious Silbury Hill that compares in height and volume to some of the Egyptian pyramids. Its mystery lies in its reluctance to reveal its purpose: historians and archaeologists have puzzled for centuries over why it was built. You will also see where human sacrifices took place, in the atmospheric Neolithic site, Woodhenge.
