Visit Britain's most remarkable and intriguing prehistoric monument and a World Heritage Site. As old as the great temples and pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge exerts a mysterious fascination. Travel into the lovely Woodford Valley, containing some of the most peaceful and scenic villages in the County and through which the River Avon lazily flows. The narrow road winds along the valley following almost every twist and turn of the west bank of the river and passing through picturesque villages whose thatched and stonework cottages shelter in the lee of the protecting slopes. Stonehenge, the mighty symbol of pre-history is a wonder of the world drawing thousands of visitors each year to witness its awesome majesty and mystery. Upon arrival at the bus park, walk through the short tunnel and onto the field site. The actual stones are fenced off for their preservation and protection, but your guide will accompany you along the encircling pathway for close up views and will describe what has been concluded from observations and archaeological evidence about the builders, their beliefs, tools and methods. Alternatively, you may care to walk around the area on your own obtaining fine photographic opportunities of the entire stone circle.
Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 0.5 mile over grassy, gravel and uneven surfaces with 5 – 15 steps. The pathways at Stonehenge can be very slippery during inclement weather so precautions should be taken. The drive to/from the port is approximately 1.45 hours each way, dependent upon traffic conditions.
