Full description
Visit the mysterious Stonehenge and the World Heritage Site of Avebury.
Head out from London on a full-day trip to King Arthur’s realm! Learn the facts and fiction about King Arthur and the mystical Isle of Avalon. Explore ancient stone circles in the Kingdom of Wessex, including Avebury and the iconic Stonehenge.

The day begins as you make your way to Stonehenge. Your guide will tell you about the 5,000 years of Stonehenge history and about the theories and ideas that scholars continue to debate. Was the site an astronomical clock, a calendar, a place of worship, or a burial place for the elite? You can ponder the theories as you walk around the stones and admire the views.

Continue west to Celtic lands, toward the Isle of Avalon and mystical Glastonbury. Stop at the famous Glastonbury Tor. Descend to the Chalice Well Gardens to hear about the legend of Joseph of Aramathea and the chalice from the Last Supper.

Your final stop on this small group tour is the World Heritage Site of Avebury. Not just unusual due to its size (Avebury is home to the largest Stone Circle complex in the world), but also because it is the only Stone Circle with a village built in the middle of it. Here, enjoy a guided walk and some free time to explore this fascinating site before your return to London.
