Due to the popularity of our annual Stonehenge Summer and Winter Solstice tours, we are pleased to offer a new intimate small group tour experience that will depart from Salisbury and Southampton.

Imagine the day: picked up from a central location in Salisbury – with its magnificent cathedral sporting the tallest spire in England, one of the best preserved copies of the Magna Carta, and the oldest working clock in Europe – you are transported to the world-famous Stonehenge ancient monument, where you can greet the solstice or equinox dawn as pilgrims have done for millennia. Then you will be taken through picturesque villages and quintessentially English countryside to Stonehenge’s sister site, Avebury. Here, you’ll be able to walk freely among the largest stone circle in Europe, and explore the other mysterious monuments that comprise a vast temple landscape. To finish off, time to visit the charming National Trust tearooms, giftshop, or the only pub inside a stone circle! Finally, you’ll be taken ‘back to the future’ and to Salisbury with plenty of time to enjoy the Cathedral, shopping and fine-dining on offer. Five thousand years in a day. Imagine

The mighty, mysterious 5000 year old Neolithic monument of Stonehenge is one of the seven wonders of the world; and its sister site, Avebury, close by, is equally as significant, but off the radar for most visitors. On this exclusive access tour led by experienced, knowledgeable guides you will be taken into the heart of the stones, and into the heart of their mystery.

Our company is the only one that specializes in private access tours to Stonehenge and has built up, over twenty years and more, a vast body of knowledge informed by cutting-edge research into the secrets of the stones. Many of our satisfied clients come back again and again, and stay in touch – because once the solstice is experienced at Stonehenge you are part of an international fellowship of pilgrims. Friendships can be forged on our tours that last a lifetime. All are united by the unique experience – for you are no ordinary tourist, and this is no ordinary tour. We love taking our pilgrims to the stones, because we love going ourselves. We want to share the magic of these special places with you.


  • Pick up from Salisbury in a luxury mini coach – an ideal base and great for shopping and fine-dining.
  • Watch the solstice sunrise at Stonehenge – a truly breath-taking moment!
  • Take part in a druid ceremony, or just enjoy the festival vibes.
  • Scenic route to Avebury, UNESCO World Heritage Site, including photo opportunities of white horses (chalk hill figures) and thatched cottages.
  • Guided walks to the key sites in the Avebury landscape: West Kennet Neolithic long barrow (probably the best preserved and biggest), Silbury Hill (the largest man-made mound in Europe), the Ridgeway (the oldest trackway in Europe), the Avenue (sacred processional route of standing stones) & more – the choice is yours.
  • Optional visit to the Alexander Keiller Museum and learn about the fascinating history of Avebury’s rescue.
  • Enjoy the picturesque National Trust tea-rooms, village pond, and charming historic buildings.
  • Great souvenir & gift shopping at the Stonehenge Visitor Centre, and the local shops in Avebury.
  • Visit the only pub inside a stone circle!

On our tours the emphasis is quality, not quantity – and we will as much as possible go at your pace, and offer you as much or as little as you want, in terms of guiding, itinerary, and content. This is your special day out – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with these unique sites.
