Private Tour to Stonehenge and Glastonbury From London
Welcome to this private tour to Glastonbury and Stonehenge from London; where legend meets reality as we follow the footsteps of King Arthur. Here is a preview of what to expect on this private day tour:
1. Private Tour of Stonehenge:
An early morning start gets us to Stonehenge where you will be one of the first customers to visit this famous Neolithic monument. Among the many legends connected with this famous site is one telling of its construction by Merlin. In addition, your expert guide will escort you to stones and enlighten you on all the mysteries, theories and history behind this fascinating monument.
2. Private Tour of Glastonbury Abbey:
In the afternoon we travel west to the county of Somerset and the resting place of King Arthur. On the way to Glastonbury, your guide will unveil the truths and legends behind King Arthur, pulling apart the ancient manuscripts and providing insight into who King Arthur really was. Furthermore, at the abbey you’ll have a chance to see the grave where King Arthur and Guinevere were discovered in 1191 and the sight their bodies were re-interred into a black marble tomb by King Edward I in 1278.
3. Free Time for Lunch in Glastonbury:
Today thousands of visitors come to Glastonbury to feel its sense of earthly energy and spirituality. At the same time, there is no where in the world quite like Glastonbury, with its interesting shops and mystical aura. One of the beauties of having a private tour is the extended time you’ll have compared to a public tour to explore the shops and enjoy lunch. Similarly, you can check out our peronalised food recommendations on our Glastonbury information page located in the ‘Our Destinations’ tab of the top menu.
4. Climb Glastonbury Tor:
What could be a better way to end the tour with a walk up Glastonbury Tor?! After all, a short 10-15 minute uphill walk is surely the perfect thing to walk off your lunch. Not to mention, you’ll be enoying one of the best views of Somerset from the very tip of the Isle of Avalon; the place where King Arthur was taken after being mortally wounded at the Battle of Camlann. In addition to unrivaled views of The Wessex Countryside, this 518 feet hike may even show you Wales on a clear day! Aside from its stunning views, Saint Michaels Tower stands proud at the top, as well as a sad reminder of the church that once stood their before the heinous orders of King Henry VIII to dissolve every Catholic Monastery in England.
