Tour 5 - Special Access Stonehenge Tours

Inner circle sunset tours including Avebury stone circles and the stunning village of Lacock - Available April to September £80.00

Tour overview
Imagine what it feels like to stand within this giant stone circle as the sun goes down. Dramatic and stunning – an experience of a lifetime. This is a very small and special tour, giving you access to the stones after the monument has closed. You chance to walk within these magnificent stone circles an experience that few people share. Many companies provide sightseeing tours to Stonehenge, however we thought we would organise something a little different and truly memorable. We’ll also be taking you to Avebury stone circles as well as Lacock national Trust village. Then we’ll be stopping at a 17th century thatched coaching inn where we can have a relaxing supper. It was mentioned in Pickwick Papers and frequented by Charles Dickens.

Available on the following dates in 2017:- April 20th 27th. May 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th, 30th. June 8th. July 6th, 13th, 20th. August 4th, 18th. September 8th. Price: £80. Maximum group size 16

Tour Itinerary

Avebury Stone Circles

This is a lesser known megalithic monument which is 16 times larger in area than Stonehenge and nearly 1000 years older! The lack of media attention at this site has helped to maintain its magical charm. There are no restrictions to prevent you from wandering freely amongst the stones. This is the ultimate location to try your hand at dowsing and discover for yourself the energy of the stones! The pretty village has grown up in the centre of the stone circles with many thatched cottages and a thatched 17th century pub!

Stonehenge

We drive through the beautiful Wiltshire countryside to Stonehenge, arriving when all the crowds have gone and the sun is going down. This amazing monument was first mentioned as one of the wonders of Britain only seventy years after the Norman Conquest. It has aroused awe and curiosity ever since. This is your chance to experience it for yourself. During the drive to Stonehenge there is plenty of information for you to browse through as well as an audio presentation. This allows you to make the most of your time here.  Please note that the visitor centre is not open during our visit.

Lacock National Trust village

This picturesque village consists of properties dating from the 13th to the 18th centuries. It was once a prosperous woollen town, but now it seems like a village trapped in time. There has been no major building here in the last 200 years so you really feel as if you're stepping back into a long forgotten era.

 

If you're interested in film locations Lacock has been used many times. It became the town of Meriton in the BBC production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The Abbey and some of the houses were also used in the filming of the first two Harry Potter movies.
