Our private guided Stonehenge tours that depart from Bath and Salisbury are the most popular with our overseas visitors. Stonehenge is the most famous and enigmatic Megalithic site in the United Kingdom. Dominating the landscape of Salisbury Plain in the county of Wiltshire, the giant standing stones of Stonehenge – some weighing up to 50 tonnes – are a mysterious icon left by mysterious ancient peoples. Our Stonehenge Inner Circle VIP Access Tours allow you to enter the inner circle at sunrise or sunset.

Why did our ancestors build the circle – as a temple, a burial site, a place of healing, or a calendar? And how did they transport the massive stones weighing up to 50 tonnes from so far away? Arthurian legend has it that the circle was built by Merlin, assisted by giants. The purpose and the construction of this awe-inspiring monument is one of the world’s most enduring mysteries. Find out on one of lecture standard custom tours.
