Newbury & Stonehenge

Monday April 6th

Stonehenge is one of the world’s most famous monuments. Located in Wiltshire and managed by English Heritage, the prehistoric site attracts more than one million tourists each year. But when was Stonehenge actually constructed? What was it used for? And why did Charles Darwin pay a visit in the 1880s?

Visit the world-class exhibition and visitor centre with 250 ancient objects and come face to face with a 5,500 year-old man.

Itinerary

From the local area the coach will head to Newbury. There will be free time here to explore and have lunch before the coach continues onto Stonehenge. Admission is included. The coach will depart at 16.00hrs to head back to the local area.

Newbury offers a great environment for shopping with lots of town centre parking, a pedestrainised high street and lots of cafes and restaurants. The retail offer is a good mix of well known high street names and local independents, including the award winning Camp Hopson department store. In October 2011 the town became an even more attractive shopping destination with the opening of Parkway. This is an open street development in the heart of the town which features more than 50 shops and kiosks that has turned Newbury into one of the best places to shop in central southern England.
