Description

Your day starts early at Notting Hill Gate tube station where you will meet your guide and a small group of up to 20 people. From there, you'll all get into a private minibus and head out of town towards Wiltshire Country, which is full of the mysterious remains of Stone Age cultures that once populated much of Britain. As you pass ancient burial mounds, earthworks and standing stones, your guide will tell you what we know about their mysterious prehistoric creators (and what we are still trying to find out). No written history has been preserved there, only strange monuments have been left behind, where archaeologists are still looking for clues.

Your first stop of the day is a little surprise: At the end of an anonymous dirty turnoff is West Kennet Long Barrow, a Neolithic tomb built almost 6000 years ago. The best part is that you can walk right in and look around. As you marvel at the building practices of mankind's distant ancestors, you will learn what we know about their belief system and burial practices and how such an amazing site was created in the middle of a farmer's field

Outside the tomb, one looks over the landscape to the huge Silbury Hill, which is actually not a hill at all, but a chalk hill, which was built by prehistoric British for reasons that remain unclear. Comparable in size to some of the smaller Egyptian pyramids, the origin and purpose of the pyramid are the subject of intense debate among archaeologists. Your guide will explain the different theories and give you the opportunity to form your own opinion

If you return by car, drive through the city of Avebury, where you will see one of the most beautiful Neolithic Henge monuments in the world from the minibus. Like Stonehenge, it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage, but in contrast, it is located right at the roadside and can be visited without large crowds

Your next stop is a little more modern. The city of Bath is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site but also a World Heritage Site. Since the Bronze Age, people have lived around the famous hot springs, but it was the Romans who first developed it into a health resort where people came to bathe in the supposedly curative waters. Later it became one of the largest and liveliest cities in England, a popular place for the landed gentry (and business class upstarts) to drink, play, see and be seen at lavish balls during the "season". You'll learn about its colourful history as you take a leisurely stroll through streets surrounded by some of Britain's finest Georgian architecture, including Putney Bridge and stunning Palladian revival buildings such as The Royal Crescent and John Wood the Younger's Bath Assembly Rooms

They have a lunch break in front of Bath Abbey. Your guide will give you lots of recommendations on where to eat well on any budget, as well as a few tips on what to see at the Abbey. Save yourself some time to look around inside. It's spectacular

After lunch we will go to the Roman baths that give this small town its name. Most people see the baths with an audio guide, but we have secured the services of one of the local experts who will tell you all about this ancient fitness club and answer any questions you may have

Your last stop is at the world famous Stonehenge, another Neolithic monument that is one of the most spectacular and least understood archaeological sites in the world. Were these stones built as a monument about 5,000 years ago? A calendar? A Roman temple? Or even, as some claim, a landing pad for alien spaceships? While most of the guides stay in the parking lot, your guide will accompany you to the site by a short shuttle bus and tell you his story while you stroll through the surroundings. The known and the unknown mix wonderfully in this primeval attraction and invite you to draw your own conclusions or simply marvel at the secrets of human history.

With a small group and a local guide, this day trip offers you a unique and immersive experience in one of the great cradles of human culture. Whether you have a deep interest in ancient history or travel with hard-to-impress young people, this experience will be a highlight of your visit.
