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).

Only 30 people are allowed on Stonehenge for each special access session. Tickets are eagerly sought after, often sold out weeks if not months ahead and need to be arranged well in advance to avoid disappointment.

During the last two weeks of June the only way to gain special access to Stonehenge is during the Stonehenge Summer Solstice.

Individual dates on which tours operate do not always follow a regular pattern.

Tickets are allocated by Stonehenge and are released usually every November 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 the autumn before you visit.

Demand far outstrips supply of tickets - Stonehenge Special Access tours are routinely sold out far in advance, so it is a matter of taking a tour whenever tickets can be obtained.

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.

Stonehenge Special Access dates for 2024 until March 2025 are listed in our table below.

Stonehenge, Premium Tours Special Acess
Choose from morning or evening special access

Built nearly 5,000 years ago, Stonehenge is the most popular prehistoric monument in the world. Most visitors to the site are not allowed direct access to the stones. With Premium Tours you get that access, with a private viewing of the mysterious monoliths, at their best - either at dawn or at dusk.

You will enter the stone circle itself and stand beside the mighty Sarsen rocks towering above. Your guide will explain the history of this ancient site, pointing out the altar, slaughter and heel stones, above which the sun rises dramatically on the summer solstice.

There will be time to enjoy the peace, away from the crowds, as you experience Stonehenge at its most mystical and atmospheric best. Not to be missed!

Lacock

Premium Tours Lacock with Stonehenge Special Access
Lacock Abbey

Lacock is a picturesque village dating back to the Saxon era. Many of the beautiful buildings originally formed part of an extensive monastic complex and are now owned by The National Trust.

So pretty is the village that it has provided the setting for many movies and television dramas including Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and the Harry Potter movies.

You can enjoy a delightful walk around Lacock, before heading off to The George Inn, a vintage English pub built in 1361. Here you can purchase a traditional home cooked English breakfast or supper, viewing the pictures of well known actors in the walls, where they have been filming in the village.

Stonehenge Summer Solstice - 20 - 21 June 2024

Summer Solstice is the most important day of the year at Stonehenge. The summer solstice is one of only a few days per year when Stonehenge becomes open access (namely the solstices and equinoxes) where you can walk among the stones. If you are wanting to visit Stonehenge from London an easy and enjoyable way to do it is by booking on one of these popular tours. The coach trips take the hassle out of making your own way to Salisbury Plains, leaving you to relax and enjoy an unforgettable experience.

We offer a choice between two very special tours, one that takes you very early to the stones from London to see the sunrise, the other that makes a day of it the day before, visiting Avebury and Lacock, before experiencing the solstice celebrations at dusk.

Sunset Tour (20 June) - 13 hrs

Tour departs London at 12 noon and heads west towards the site, taking the time to enjoy the ancient stones at Avebury, before heading to picturesque Lacock for an early evening supper, included in the price. From here we journey to Stonehenge itself arriving at roughly 7pm, as it begins it’s annual celebration of the summer solstice. Huge crowds gather and there will be plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of this historic event, walk amongst the stones, and observe the pagan rituals and ceremonies that take place at varying intervals throughout the evening. Please note there are two twenty to thirty-minute walks involved during the day to see the celebrations at Avebury and Stonehenge.

Sunrise Tour (21 June) - 8 hrs

Tour departs London at 1am (yes - really - that early!) on the 21st June and heads directly to Stonehenge arriving at roughly 3am. The annual celebration of the summer solstice will be well under way by then as the atmosphere builds towards the sunrise and the climax of the event. Huge crowds gather and there will be plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of this historic morning, walk amongst the stones, and observe the pagan rituals and ceremonies that take place at varying intervals throughout the evening. Please note there is a twenty to thirty-minute walk involved to get from the coach park to the event.
