The following post will provide details about organized coach tours from central London to Stonehenge, a Neolithic monument and Unesco World Heritage site.

OVERVIEW

If you want to visit Stonehenge from central London on a coach tour, there are several different services to consider. 

While some tour companies offer half-day trips to the stone circle, others provide combo packages with additional attractions that are full-day tours.

Each organized Stonehenge tour includes admission fees and an audio guide with information about the pehistoric monument as well as transportation to and from the historic UK site.

In addition to these historical landmarks and attractions, you might also have an opportunity for guided walking tours in locations such as Oxford or Bath.

If you’re looking for an extra special trip to Stonehenge, you may want to consider going to either a sunrise or sunset opening.

SUNRISE AND SUNSET STONEHENGE OPENINGS

Whether you’d like to beat the crowd or see this landmark after dark, there are alternatives to seeing Stonehenge during normal opening hours.

You can even visit during the summer solstice.

These opportunities are usually included with special combo packages with additional stops at locations such as Oxford and Windsor Castle.

Although you have to pay a bit more for these outings, it may be worth the higher price tag for a chance to see Stonehenge outside of normal hours.

Each outing that includes early or late Stonehenge openings will last an entire day, so you should plan on setting aside enough time for this activity.

Most options give you the opportunity to walk inside the stone circle alongside a licensed tour guide.
