Get Up Close To The Stones With Pat Shelley - The Stonehenge Experience

Want to be one of the few people to walk amongst the inner stone circle at Stonehenge?

Your tour will be led by an acknowledged expert, Pat Shelley, the mostly highly rated tour guide in the area who has worked with many TV production companies, archaeologists, and authors on the history Stonehenge.


Unlike the other Special Access tours we cover here, this one starts in the nearest main town to Stonehenge, Salisbury and your time on the Stonehenge landscape is much longer as the tour takes in much more than Stonehenge itself.


Don't worry if your accommodation is in London, its very easy to get to Salisbury from London by train and the trains run till late so there is still time to get back to London last thing.

Salisbury is a great place to visit in its own right, so why not make a day of it and round a memorable day with your special tour to Stonehenge.

Millstream Coach Park is the meeting point for the evening tours or the Market Square for few number of morning tours that operate. A map is sent on confirmation of your reservation. The meeting point is within easy walking distance of Salisbury Railway Station and Salisbury Cathedral, well worth a visit prior to your evening tour.

It is recommended that guests do not rely on the train that gets in just before the tour starts because of any possible delays.


After the tour drop off's are offered at the railway station, MIllstream coach park and the Market square.


On leaving Salisbury it is about 10 miles to the Stonehenge landscape. First visit is Durrington Walls and Woodhenge close to the River Avon from where the procession route to Stonehenge starts.

Its then back on the coach to the Stonehenge Visitor Centre, where we start a walk across the Stonehenge landscape climaxing with your visit to the Stonehenge monument itself inside the stones. Walking is a little over a mile with 4 stopping points.


On completion of the tour the coach takes us back to Salisbury stopping at the railway station, MIllstream coach park and the Market square.

Stonehenge Special Access From Salisbury

Getting To Salisbury From London

As Pat has nearly all his tours on the evening sessions its possible to use train services to and from Salisbury on the day of the tour. Direct trains run back to London until about 9:30 p.m. , indirect trains later.

Salisbury is a bit of a rail hub with main lines and frequent trains going east to London, south to Southampton and west to Bath and Bristol.

Frequent trains run from London's Waterloo station taking approximately 80 minutes to do the journey.

There are normally two trains an hour operating up until very late evening.

During the week, the cheap tickets are not available until after the morning commuter rush.


The Trainline - timetables and ticketing for UK railways

On the Salisbury - Waterloo route there is also a chance you may be able to get deep discounted fares on Megatrain / Megabus.

This is a web site that sells cheap fares on a subset of the trains where it is unlikely they will sell many tickets otherwise. You have to purchase in advance.
