Step back in time 5,000 years as we visit the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe. Take a step inside the reconstructed Neolithic houses, furnished with replica axes, pottery and other artefacts, and listen as our guide brings the fascinating history of Stonehenge to life. Who built Stonehenge? Why was it built? Discover the answer to these questions and learn how it was constructed using rudimental tools and stone from quarries hundreds of miles away. In the world-class exhibition centre, you’ll get the chance to come face-to-face with a 5,500-year-old man and over 250 ancient objects.
Our last stop will be a scenic tour of the historic city of Bath, originally built as a place of well-being and relaxation by the Romans over 2,000 years ago. Home to the country’s only natural thermal hot springs, Bath is a delightful city where the ancient world is intertwined with threads of medieval and more recent Georgian history. Our scenic drive of Bath provides an excellent introduction to the major sights of this beautiful city, including Pulteney Bridge, The Assembly Rooms and The Royal Crescent.
Afterwards, the time is yours to explore this beautiful city at your own pace. Wander its cobbled streets and explore the markets, or choose to visit the famous Roman Baths* and learn all about their history.

How close to Stonehenge can I get?
As the stones are a protected site, so the nearest visitors can get to them is around 10-15 yards. The monument is roped off by a small, knee-high barrier that is monitored by staff. However, it is possible to walk among the stones of the ‘inner circle’ outside of public hours on one of our special access tours.
Do you need tickets for Stonehenge?
Entrance to Stonehenge is managed via a timed ticketing system. Visitors are a 30-minute time slot in which to arrive at the site, so remember to check the time on your ticket. Once visitors arrive on-site, they are free to spend as much time as they would like there.
Pre-booking your tickets, whilst not essential, is the best way to guarantee entry on the day and ensure you are able to enter at the time of your choice. Tickets can be pre-purchased up to 3 hours in advance of your visit.
When should I visit Stonehenge?
Stonehenge is fantastic year-round. However, we recommend visiting in the winter months when there are fewer visitors. At the end of the day, it is possible to see the sun going down behind the stones to the southwest.
