Day tours from London to Stonehenge and the West country
Take a day out of the city to explore some more of England. There is so much to see when visiting the West Country and Stonehenge is always one of the most popular sites. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this set of ancient stones is still shrouded in mystery. We know that it predates the Iron Age, and is one of the best insights we have into ancient Britain – it is the most architecturally sophisticated and only surviving lintelled stone circle in the world. There is still great speculation about how the site was actually used, though. Was it a place for the coronation of Danish kings? Was it a Druid temple? Perhaps a cult centre for healing? The theories are still coming in, keeping Stonehenge as mysterious and fascinating as ever.
