Our first stop is the mysterious Stonehenge. Upon arrival we enjoy priority entrance and head up to the stones where we learn of the building and rumoured origins of this ancient monument. Learn of the people that constructed Stonehenge, and the possible methods they used, how far the stones were moved to get them here, the purpose of the circle and how many questions remain unanswered.
In the afternoon we drive further west, where we enter Celtic lands to King Arthur's Avalon and the mysterious Glastonbury Tor, rising above the wetlands and marshes of the Somerset Levels. Legend has it that a mortally wounded Arthur was brought here after the Battle of Camlann. We visit the tranquil and atmospheric Chalice Well Gardens, where the cup from the Last Supper was said to have been hidden in the First Century by Joseph himself. The truly magical town of Glastonbury has something for everyone including a great selection of New Age shopping and fun and quirky cafes.
