If you’re fascinated by England’s mysteries, from the legends of King Arthur and the mystical island of Avalon to the ancient stone circles in the former Kingdom of Wessex, then this day trip from London to Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury was made for you! On this small-group tour, enjoy the English countryside, see some of its most legendary attractions including the Glastonbury Tor and the Chalice Well, and let a friendly professional guide fill you in on the folklore that surrounds these incredible sites.
On this full-day tour from London, uncover with your guide the myths and legends of King Arthur and see some of England’s most famous and curious sites. From London, head west through the beautiful countryside to what was once the ancient Kingdom of Wessex, where you’ll visit one of the most mysterious sites on Earth, that prehistoric and world-famous stone monument known as Stonehenge.

The landscape is peppered with burial chambers and stone circles, each one thousands of years old and shrouded in mysteries, but Stonehenge rises above them all. Located on Salisbury Plain and keeping its 5,000 years of history quite secret, Stonehenge has been described as everything from an astronomical clock to a place of worship or burial. Your guide will explain what is known today and reveal the theories that have been debated for centuries. Ponder these theories as you walk around the stones and admire the scenic views.

Your tour continues to the small town of Glastonbury, supposed home of the mysterious isle of Avalon, the place where King Arthur’s sword was forged, according to legend. It was here, after the Battle of Camlann, that a mortally wounded King Arthur died. Stop at the famous Glastonbury Tor (a hill) and view the ruins of St Michael's church, afterwards descend to the Chalice Well Gardens to learn of an older legend – that of the chalice that Jesus Christ used during the Last Supper. Some say the Holy Grail is buried here in Glastonbury – will you become a believer?

Continue into town to visit Glastonbury Abbey, the site of Arthur’s and Queen Guinevere's graves and after lunch in one of the local restaurants (own expense), move on to the ancient complex of Avebury, a Neolithic monument made up of three stone circles, one of which is the largest in Europe. Spend the end of your tour being guided around these huge stone rings and see the mysterious Silbury Hill, Europe's tallest prehistoric manmade mound – a fitting end to a full day of discovery.
