King Arthur Tour: Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury

2. King Arthur Tour: Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury

A tour of England's west country, tracing the Arthurian legend. Our tour takes us to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Stonehenge and Avebury. Glastonbury, according to legend, the final resting place of Arthur, is also on today's itinerary where we will take a hike up Glastonbury Tor, visit the Chalice Well and Glastonbury Abbey. From London we'll call in at Stonehenge to tour the most famous pre-historic stone circle in the world. Nearby is the town of Amesbury, a place with strong Arturian connections. We head further west deep into the land of the summer people, Somerset, and Glastonbury, the mysterious Isle of Avalon, where will climb the Tor for some great views - weather permitting! The Chalice Well is next, a site strongly associated with Joseph of Arimethea, where we can sample the spring waters and enjoy the peace and quiet of the gardens. If we want we can bathe in the chilly waters of the Victorian Pump House directly under the Tor. Next it's time for lunch. Maybe fish and chips in an award winning restaurant? There will be sometime to look around the shops before we visit Glastonbury Abbey, the final resting place of King Arthur...or is it? Backtracking we will drop in Caen Lock to see an impressive flight of canal locks built over 200 years ago. We will pass over Wansdyke, a huge earthwork, built during the time of King Arthur 1500 years ago, some 50 kilometres in length. Nearby is the stone circle of Avebury, the largest in the world within which lies a village complete with shops, a pub and post office. After a walk around the stones we head back to London, passing by an ancient mound associated with Merlin the magician.

What people are saying about Silbury Hill

We had a great time on our trip to Avebury, West Kenner Long Barrow and Stonehenge. Our guide’s kndrpth of knowledge z as nc enthusiasm was unparalleled, and the skill of the driver navigating narrow streets was impressive. I highly rrr Ed commend this tour!

I could not recommend this any higher. Walking inside Stonehenge was amazing and the Anderson Tours was the best. My 12 year old son and I went and were incredibly impressed.

The guide was amazing. The bus was not. The seats were much too close together for $190 per person. Stonehenge inner circle was fascinating.

The guide Hailey was excellent and the driver Anthony was nice and very friendly.

Fantastic day out. Our guide Tom was amazing - so knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
