Stonehenge is a UN World Heritage Site and one of the oldest prehistoric sites in Europe! The site was first started in 3100BC and was in use until 300AD, almost 3500 years.

Stonehenge arrival or Bath arrival will depend on your departure region and varies in order and timing.
Stonehenge will be on average 90 minute stay but possibly more or less time depending on where you are leaving from. Bath stay on average 1 – 2 hours until departure.
Both locations are important historical and archaeological sites that provide insights into ancient life in the UK and since they are within easy driving distance of London, they make a wonderful option for a day out.
