Stonehenge Special Access Inner Circle Evening Tour , Friday 1st September 2017
Stonehenge is a "must see" for anyone visiting the UK. Our Stonehenge Special Access tour gives you privileged access to the Stone Circle in the evening. As one of the country's most famous World Heritage sites most visitors are not allowed direct access to the stones, but we have arranged with English Heritage for privileged access when the site is closed to the general public!
We combine this tour with a visit to the mysterious village of Avebury which is ringed by the largest stone circle in the world for an unforgettable day out of London!
Your fully guided return coach tour includes:
• Guided Tour of Avebury
• Free Time to explore Avebury
• A visit to West Kennet Long Barrow
• Entrance into Stonehenge for Stone Circle Special Access private to our group.

- 20:00 After our special access inside Stonehenge we head back to London. Your tour manager will confirm the drop off locations for our return to London during the journey.
- 23:00 Approximate arrival time back into Central London (time may be passed midnight).
On the return to London, there may be a small number of drop offs - we suggest due to the late return time of this tour that passengers disembark at the first pick up and travel by public transportation to get to their destination quicker as we cannot predict traffic conditions in the city.
***We recommend a packed lunch/you bring snacks for the day, as Avebury is limited in available options being a tiny village and arrival back in to London will be late at night.
All times shown are local times.
