Stonehenge & Avebury – 10 hours
Go back in time to discover the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge – probably the most sophisticated and famous stone circle in the world. The giant stones have been here on Salisbury Plain for over 4000 years. Join us to uncover some of the mysteries of its 5000 year history.
Then onto Avebury the world-famous stone circle and on-site museum at the heart of a prehistoric landscape
In the 1930s, the pretty village of Avebury, partially encompassed by the stone circle of this World Heritage Site, was witness to the excavations of archaeologist Alexander Keiller. Keiller opened the Museum to display his findings in 1938 in the old stable building of Avebury Manor where he lived. In re-erecting many of the stones, Keiller uncovered the true wonder of one of the most important megalithic monuments in Europe. You can see his fascinating finds on display in the museum, still housed in the stables but now also in the 17th-century threshing barn, where interactive displays and activities for children bring the landscape to life. Avebury Manor has just reopened following a major renovation and re-building project.
Stonehenge now has a world-class visitor centre, housing museum-quality permanent and temporary exhibitions, plus a spacious shop and café.
