Delve into the legend and archaeology of King Arthur’s Glastonbury

FULL DAY TOUR ITINERARY

This feature-packed archaeological tour takes in the iconic stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury, and delves into the legend and archaeology of King Arthur’s Glastonbury. Leaving from London by luxury bus, this Stonehenge tour will explore its iconic standing stones and broader landscape with expert analysis by our archaeologist guides. Midday on towards the Isle of Avalon, following delightful back roads until Glastonbury Tor where legend tells us King Arthur was brought after being mortally wounded in battle and then the enigmatic ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, Arthurs place of burial. We finish by visiting the largest stone circle in Europe at Avebury, with its beautiful medieval village situated inside. As John Aubrey in the 1600's notes [Avebury]..."does as much exceed in greatness the so renowned Stonehenge as a Cathedral doeth a parish church."

Archaeology Tours:

The Tour Guides are qualified archaeologists, and as a result we believe we offer an excellent up-to-date specialist service; giving you the opportunity to learn in great detail about these amazing prehistoric sites, but also leaving you time to explore your surroundings by yourself.

MORNING: STONEHENGE AND ENVIRONS
The morning starts with a visit to Durrington Walls and Woodhenge, home to the 'Stonehenge Builder's' village and the most convincing evidence for human sacrifice. We then travel a short distance to Stonehenge. We enjoy a leisurely paced walk through the landscape immediately surrounding Stonehenge, visiting the Stonehenge Cursus, Bronze Age burial mounds and walk along the Stonehenge Avenue. We complete our morning at Stonehenge with a guided walk around the stone circle, our archaeologists bringing to life this enigmatic, ancient and mysterious monument.
MID-DAY: KING ARTHUR'S GLASTONBURY
Midday on towards the Isle of Avalon, following delightful back roads until Glastonbury Tor where legend tells us King Arthur was brought after being mortally wounded in battle and then the enigmatic ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, Arthurs place of burial.

You will have free time to explore the historic town of Glastonbury and have lunch.
AFTERNOON: AVEBURY STONE CIRCLE AND ENVIRONS
The Afternoon is spent at the Avebury World Heritage Landscape. We visit Silbury Hill, the largest man-made hill in prehistoric Europe.

We finish by visiting the largest stone circle in Europe at Avebury, with its beautiful medieval village situated inside. As John Aubrey in the 1600's notes [Avebury]..."does as much exceed in greatness the so renowned Stonehenge as a Cathedral doeth a parish church."
