Stonehenge and Avebury/Silbury (full day)

Silbury Hill, Avebury

Silbury Hill, Avebury

See and feel both of these spectacular, atmospheric and contrasting giant megalithic temples together in one day. These two ancient sites are one hour’s drive apart, yet from a global perspective they resonate together. They are also both very different – Stonehenge is dramatic, a celestial temple, while Avebury is more friendly, a place of the Earth Mother.

Both are set in the remarkable wide-open, rather un-earthly landscapes of the chalk downs of Wiltshire. This is a memorable trip. Private access to Stonehenge is subject to availability.

Cost: £290

J.R Tolkien used to sit in the shade of these trees at Avebury. It’s easy to see their maze of roots as the inspiration for his intricate storylines.
