A trip to Stonehenge is an opportunity to visit one of the UK’s most historic sites and there is no better way to travel there than in a chauffeur-driven car. For professional chauffeur services in London and to other destinations in the UK, Chauffeur One is a name that can be relied upon.
Stonehenge is located in Wiltshire, around eight miles from the town of Salisbury. Its location places it within easy reach of London and a car journey from the city to Stonehenge typically takes a little over two hours.
If Stonehenge were to be described simply as a ring of standing stones then it might generate little excitement, but this is one of the most important prehistoric monuments in the world. The world famous stone circle is an engineering wonder and has become an iconic site, as well as a source of inspiration and spirituality to generations of people. It has been a site of celebration and worship at Summer Solstice for thousands of years. Stonehenge is part of a complex of monuments erected during the Neolithic and Bronze ages that includes a number of burial mounds. According to archaeologists, the site was constructed at any time between the years 3,000 to 2,000 BC. The site was given World Heritage Site status in 1986.
In addition to the monuments themselves, visitors to Stonehenge can see how people in ancient times lived, with reconstructed Neolithic houses and demonstrations of crafts, such as flint knapping and the making of rope using rushes. There are exhibitions, a café and a shop on site. Your driver will be happy to look after any purchases you make on the day whilst you continue to explore this fascinating complex.
If you would like to explore any of the other sights around Stonehenge, Chauffeur One can work with you to draw up a tailor-made itinerary. Wiltshire is known for its downland and valleys. Stonehenge itself is located on Salisbury Plain, a chalk plateau rich in flora and fauna that has two national nature reserves. The city of Salisbury, around eight miles from Stonehenge, has a famous medieval cathedral with the tallest church spire in the UK. The remains of the original cathedral can still be seen. Old Sarum, the site of the earliest settlement in Salisbury, is also open to visitors.
