Before the main event we'll take you to see Woodhenge where you'll see pillars marking the positions of Neolithic wooden posts which have long since rotted away. It's an important World Heritage Site and consists of six concentric ovals of standing posts, surrounded by a bank and ditch.
Stonehenge, Lacock Village & Abbey Tour
Our Stonehenge & Lacock Tour is very poular. Combine the Neolithic with the medieval with a touch of Harry Potter and Downton Abbey thrown in for good measure. Your first port of call is Stonehenge…
Stonehenge is the most famous and enigmatic historical site in Britain. Developed in stages over a 5,000 year period, the giant standing stones weigh up to 50 tonnes and dominate the landscape of Salisbury Plain. Was it a ceremonial temple… or built by aliens? You decide.
On site is the fabulous Stonehenge Visitor Centre where you can further explore the mysteries of the ancient stones. Here you'll enjoy world-class exhibitions and multi-media displays. Outside there are reconstructed Neolithic houses—where if you're lucky—you might see ancient crafting demonstrations and bread-making using prehistoric techniques.
The next stop on your tour is the beautiful historic village of Lacock with its abbey founded in the thirteenth century. Here you'll enjoy lunch; we suggest the fourteenth century George Inn with its picture postcard charm and medieval fireplace. Lacock is a quintessential English village little changed in 200 years with streets lined with timber-framed houses, independent shops and a fouteenth century tithe barn. It's also home to the Fox Talbot Museum which explores the history of photography and the life of photographic pioneer Henry Fox Talbot who lived at the Abbey.
Founded in the thirteenth century, Lacock Abbey was originally an Augustinian monastery; later to be seized by Henry VIII and subsequently becomming a country house. Over the centuries the Abbey has undergone many changes, up until 1944 when it passed to the National Trust. A tour of the Abbey will provide insight into its history and allow visitors to enjoy the rich architectural features such as the original medieval cloister as well as the meandering paths and woodland of the gardens.
