Full description
You’ll all hop into a private minibus and head out of the city toward the Wiltshire countryside. Your first stop of the day is a little surprise: at the end of an anonymous dirt turn-off sits West Kennett Long Barrow, a Neolithic tomb built nearly 6,000 years ago. 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. 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 around 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’s spectacular. After lunch you’ll head inside the Roman Baths that give this small city its name. You’ll learn all about this ancient health club and it’s history.

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. 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.
