Stonehenge Tour

You will visit the most famous prehistoric monument in the world and a World Heritage site, dating back nearly 5,000 years ago. The monument stands on a small mound in a vast plain in the countryside 10 miles away from Salisbury. This monument has remained a mystery since its construction thousands of years ago. To this day we are not sure how Stonehenge was built or what it was used for. It could be a temple of the Druids of Celtic religion, a cemetery from the Bronze Age, an observatory of the moon or even an astronomical clock.



We will spend one hour at Stonehenge which will be enough time for you to view this prehistoric monument, have refreshments and also visit the souvenir shop.

Bath is one of the most popular places to visit in England, which has been welcoming visitors for hundreds of years. In the 1700s and 1800s Baths hot springs attracted the Georgian and Victorian members of high society who came to bath to be healed by the spring and spa treatment. Bath was also very popular for gambling, gala balls in the evening.
