Stonehenge Express

One of the great wonders of our world is the awe-inspiring World Heritage Site – Stonehenge. Why and how it was built remains a mystery, and it dates back almost 5000 years.

This luxury coach takes you directly from London to Stonehenge and back again, and includes entrance to the site. It’s convenient, speedy (approximately 6 hours round trip), and great value!
