Private Stonehenge tour from London…plus Salisbury Cathedral
I’m a London born and bred tour guide but I love my English scenery and history too. I enjoy providing commentary and historic anecdotes about all my tour destinations. On this day trip out of London we’re going to visit two unforgettable English landmarks.
Stonehenge: is a prehistoric wonder 5000 years old. Yet there are so many layers of history here and new discoveries still being made. I first visited when I was eleven. I’m still fascinated, and I’m still learning. I’ll help you separate the myths from the real stories. By the time we leave, you’ll know your neolithic from your megalithic and a disc barrow from a druid priest!
The entire ‘ritual’ site is vast, predating even the famous stone circle. The stones are definitely the centrepiece, but there is also a superb Visitor Centre exhibiting discoveries and treasures from this mysterious monument.
Salisbury Cathedral: 13th century Gothic triumph, medieval religious powerhouse and place of burial for the big bishops.
This spectacular Cathedral has the tallest spire in Britain, beautiful stone decoration, olden tombs and is home to one of only four surviving copies of Magna Carta. We’ll explore its tales of religion, upheaval and, yes, violence.

I’m your driver and private guide at Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral. I’ll be explaining as we explore.
Stonehenge and Salisbury both have excellent parking facilities. Walking is integral to both attractions and both are wheelchair friendly. I’ll talk as we walk and when we stop to scrutinize all the points of interest. There are endless opportunities for photographs.
Light lunch tends to be in the very nice cafe in the Cathedral.
Stonehenge is very isolated. Combining the two landmarks in one trip makes for an excellent full day excursion. Having a driver/walking guide like me conducting your tour in a London taxi is super-efficient and will help to make the day enjoyable and memorable.
Modern bathroom facilities are at both locations. We’ll also be stopping for short breaks on the outward and return journeys.
TICKETS: Price does not include admission to Stonehenge. Tickets are itemised on the booking form and are purchased by Graham in advance to avoid lines. Salisbury Cathedral is free entry, although they suggest a donation.
