What to expect

Your day starts early at Notting Hill Gate tube station, where you’ll all hop into a private minibus and head out of the city toward the Wiltshire countryside, which is packed with enigmatic remnants of Stone Age cultures that once populated much of the UK.

Your first stop of the day is a Neolithic tomb built nearly 6,000 years ago, which you can walk right inside and have a look around. Outside the tomb, you’ll look across the countryside to the enormous Silbury Hill that isn’t actually a hill at all, but a chalk mound built by prehistoric Britons for reasons that remain unclear.

Hopping back in the car, you’ll drive through the Town of Avebury, where you’ll see, from the minibus, one of the most stunning Neolithic henge monuments (henge is a general word for a type of Neolithic monument) in the world. Like Stonehenge, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Unlike Stonehenge, It is sitting next to the side of the road and you can view it without any major crowds.

Your next stop is a little more modern, as these things go. The city of Bath doesn’t just have a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one. People have been living near its famous hot springs since the Bronze Age, but it was the Romans who first developed it as a resort town, where people came to bathe in the supposedly curative waters.

You’ll break for lunch in front of the Bath Abbey. Your guide will give you plenty of recommendations for where to eat well on any budget, as well as a few tips for what to see inside the Abbey. Be sure to save a little time to look around inside, it is spectacular. After lunch you’ll head inside the Roman Baths that give this small city its name. Most people see the baths with an audio guide, but we’ve secured the services of one of the on-site experts who will tell you all about this ancient health club and answer any questions you might have.

Your final stop is the world-famous Stonehenge, another Neolithic monument that is among the most spectacular and least understood ancient archeological sites in the world. Were these stones erected some 5,000 years ago as a monument? A Calendar? A Roman Temple? Or even, as some more, ahem, creative sources have alleged, a landing site for alien spaceships? While most guides stay in the parking lot, yours will accompany you on the short shuttle bus to the site and tell you its story as you stroll around its perimeter. The known and unknown mix and mingle wonderfully at this primeval attraction, inviting you to draw some of your own conclusions, or perhaps just marvel at the mysteries of human history.

With a small group and an expert local guide, this day trip offers you a unique and immersive experience in one the world’s great cradles of human culture. Whether you have a deep interest in ancient history or are traveling with hard-to-impress young people, this experience will be a highlight of your visit.
