Two tours: Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge inner circle or Avebury and Stonehenge inner circle

With Salisbury

Be an early riser and witness the sunrise at Stonehenge for a spectacular experience that will stay with you a lifetime. Enjoy direct access to the stones before the site opens to the general public. This magical day trip then takes you on to Medieval Salisbury, and the spectacular Salisbury Cathedral (entrance included).

With Avebury and West Kennet Long Barrow

Build up to a personal up-close experience of Stonehenge in the inner circle with a day trip to another mystical site: Avebury. Avebury has its own mythology, which you can learn more about on this guided tour. A true Neolithic day to remember, this tour also takes you to experience the ancient West Kennet Long Barrow, one of the largest Neolithic burial tombs in Britain and over 5000 years old - and into the actual chambers themselves! A tour not to be missed.

Get up close to the stones like few visitors do

Stonehenge is a "must see" for any visitor. This Stonehenge Special Access tour offers something different, giving you privileged access, behind the ropes within the Stone Circle itself, walking among the stones.

These special access sessions at Stonehenge only happen outside Stonehenge normal public opening hours, at dawn (and in the evening too between March and September).

The privileged special access at Stonehenge is for the select few! Only 30 people are allowed on Stonehenge for each special access session.

Demand far outstrips supply of tickets - Stonehenge special access tours are routinely sold out far in advance.

Tickets are allocated by Stonehenge and are released usually every March for the following year. We aim to display the following year's ticket dates for Stonehenge Special Access as soon as possible after they are made live. If you are planning ahead for later than these dates it is necessary to keep checking back until they become live in March.

Please note - Special Access visits are available most but not all months of the year. No tours run during October and November and last two weeks of June.
