Summer Solstice: June 20, 2012
There’s a reason that Stonehenge draws millions of visitors from around the world – it’s one of the most magical places on the planet, especially during the Summer Solstice – the shortest day of the year, when the sun rises in perfect alignment to the circle of stones. No matter what time of year you visit Stonehenge (and no matter what the weather), it’s sure to be a memorable experience. See more info below on Fun Day Trips departing from London, including Stonehenge Private Viewings.
Fun Day Trips from London & Stonehenge Private Viewings
Take one of these Fun Day Trips to Stonehenge ( departing from London) – and include visits to Windsor Castle, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, Winchester and The Cotswolds. During one of our visits to Stonehenge, we combined our trip with a few days in Bath, England’s most beautiful Georgian city – and home of the famous author Jane Austen.
Stonehenge Private Viewings – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
Avoid the crowds and book an exclusive Private Viewing of Stonehenge during sunrise or sunset and step inside the”inner circle of stones.” Tickets are limited – groups of 12 (morning) or 40 (afternoon), each with their own guide. Stonehenge sunrise tours depart from London at 3am or 4am so you can catch the sunrise in the middle of the summer.
Your Private Viewing of Stonehenge Tour includes a visit to Lacock, one of England’s most picturesque villages, dating back to the Saxon era. Lacock was the setting for many of Jane Austen’s movies and TV dramas, including “Pride and Prejudice.” Several classroom scenes from “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” were filmed there. Explore the beautiful Georgian city of Bath – Jane Austen’s birthplace (Charles Dickens also lived and worked there as a young man). Visit Bath Abbey and the magnificent Roman Baths. Tours sell out quickly, so be sure to book early.
