It will be of no surprise to you that Stonehenge is one of the most popular attractions in the world, and it has also been given the prestigious award of World Heritage Status and is one of the major wonders of the world. There are conflicting thoughts behind why it was built, first ideas were as a pagan place of worship, this was followed by an astronomical clock and then lead onto a Bronze age burial ground. The history of Stonehenge goes back over 5000 years, and this Stonehenge Express tour gives you the perfect opportunity to make up your own mind on exactly what Stonehenge was used for.

You can expect for the tour to arrive back to the station approximately 3:30pm but this can change depending on weather, traffic and other factors.
An interesting trip, everything ran as expected and was back in time for my dinner reservation.
I choose this trip because I wanted a short tour just to see Stonehenge when I had an afternoon off on my work trip - it worked well.
The journey to Stonehenge took longer than we expected, it was almost two hours (thank goodness for the WIFI on board!) but it was well worth it when we got there. We went on a really windy day, which meant that it wasnt as enjoyable as we hoped it would have been - but you cannot predict the weather and we still loved it! Its a shame there is a main road right next to the stones. We were so well looked after by our driver and felt safe and happy with him, the bus was super too!
Well, this Stonehenge experience was BRILLIANT! I was a bit nervous given the price being so cheap, however, from the moment I arrived at the meeting point I knew it would be great. The driver was super friendly with a great commentary on the journey up and back. We were even able to stop at Woodhenge which was an unexpected suprise! We were also so lucky with the weather and took some amazing photos, just a brilliant day all round!
We decided to take the express trip to Stonehenge as we had the afternoon free before flying back to the US early the next morning. It was a great way to spend our final afternoon in London, although it was outside and meant we got to see some of the great british countryside we had heard about but never really seen. We were so lucky with the weather, clear blue sky and great for photos. The trip was really good value for money and the coach and driver were nice.
The Stonehenge Express Tour was simply amazing. I was staying in London for 10 days and dedicating one afternoon to visit Stonehenge was a great idea. The ride to Stonehenge took more than 2 hours but it was quite comfortable. The driver was very nice, giving additional commentary and keeping the passengers hyped about the journey. We had 1 hour and a half available time at Stonehenge which was more than enough to make a relaxing round, carefully listen to the audio guide, grab a quick bite and visit the souvenir shop. Much recommended if somebody (like me) doesn't have enough time to combine the visit to Stonehenge with Oxford (Bath) and Windsor.
