Our Stonehenge Special Access at Sunrise or Sunset Tour from London is a unique tour that allows entry into the inner circle, enabling you to enjoy the mystery of the stones in a very exceptional, close-up and personal way. This is the only tour that enables such special access. The tours take place when Stonehenge is closed to the general public.
The tour also visits the nearby Roman city of Bath and the pretty village of Lacock.
You are accompanied on the tour by a professional tour guide.
Stonehenge, a Unesco World Heritage Site, was constructed over 5000 years ago and is one of the most striking and mystical neolithic sites in the world. Entering the stone circle and standing dwarfed alongside these huge rocks towering above you, your tour guide will explain the various theories as to how and why it was built, explaining the history of this ancient site, pointing out the different stones, above which the sun rises mysteriously on the summer solstice. There will be time to enjoy Stonehenge in solitude, away from the crowds, as you experience Stonehenge at its most mystical and atmospheric best.
Stonehenge inner circle tour at sunrise
The sunrise tour allows you to visit before the site is open to the general public and enables you to have special access inside the inner circle, not permitted on regular tours.
The sunrise tour is available every Monday and Thursday during the summer and Saturdays during the winter.
Following the visit to Stonehenge we head to the nearby village of Lacock, considered one of the 10 prettiest villages in England, for breakfast in the 13th century George Inn and then onto the ancient city of Bath.
The sunset tour enables you to enter Stonehenge after it is closed to the general public and gives you a private experience of entering the inner circle, which is not permitted on other tours.
Before visiting Stonehenge on the sunset tour we visit the ancient city of Bath and then onto the small village of Lacock where you can have an early dinner in the 13th Century George Inn.
The magnificent city of Bath is a Unesco World Heritage Site and your guide will give you an optional tour of the city, or if you want, you are welcome to see Bath by yourself.
The guided tour will take you to the 16th Century Bath Abbey and through the elegant architecture of Bath’s 18th Century Georgian squares and streets.The city is forever associated with Jane Austin and you will visit the Jane Austin Museum and stop in a 17th century tea room. The tour continues to the famous Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon, modeled on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, and, finally, we arrive at The Roman Baths.
The Romans built spas and a temple here in 70AD utilising the local hot springs and today you can visit the best preserved Roman spa in the world simply known as ‘The Roman Baths’. Entry is not included in the standard ticket but you can upgrade when booking if required.
There is plenty of time to shop and have refreshments during your visit to Bath.
Lacock is a small village set in the Wiltshire countryside. The settlement was recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book and was first settled sometime in the Saxon period. Today it has many medieval buildings and is considered one of the 10 prettiest villages in England. The village was used in the filming of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, as well as the TV series of Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice and the Downton Abbey film. We stop here for a very traditional English breakfast or dinner at the 13th Century George Inn. Food and drinks are not included in the tour price.
