Your private Stonehenge, Glastonbury & Avebury trip begins with collection from your London or Heathrow address. We can collect from your hotel lobby, air bnb, airport arrival terminal, train station, guest house or private address. With your professional driver, you'll then journey West to prehistoric Stonehenge, lying majestically among the chalk uplands of historic Wessex. The complex monument has enthralled and allured historians and tourists alike for centuries. Admire its powerful presence, then take some time to experience the visitor centre where you can learn of the building methods and theories behind the existence of the stone circle.
Further West, you will enter Celtic lands to King Arthur's Avalon and the mysterious Glastonbury Tor. Legend has it that a mortally wounded Arthur was brought here after the Battle of Camlann. Visit his gravesite in the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey and learn of the even earlier legend of Joseph of Arimathea and the Holy Grail. Explore Chalice Well Gardens, where the cup from the Last Supper was said to have been hidden in the First Century by Joseph himself. This magical and mysterious town has something for everyone including a great selection of New Age shopping and fun and quirky cafes for lunch.
Your final stop of the day features a pretty village of thatched cottages, nestled right in the middle of the largest stone circle in Britain! After some time to explore and take photos of this picturesque village, your private day trip concludes, and you will be returned to London.
