Kid-Friendly Private Tour. Enjoy special kid-friendly commentary, with a mix of facts, legends, and stories. We are truly passionate about family travel and we want to instill the love for learning and spark some interest in history and culture into the hearts of young travellers.
Start your morning bright and early, when your kid-friendly tour guide and private chauffeur tour / guide picks you up at your hotel or location of your choice in London in your time travel machine (disguised as a modern luxury mini-van). After about 2 hours, you will arrive near Stonehenge, and then take a shuttle bus to the monument.
It was built over 5000 years ago! These prehistoric stones are full of mysteries, and you and your kids will have fun deciphering the secrets that our Neolithic ancestors left behind! Who were the New Stone Age inhabitants of this region and why did they build this sanctuary? How did people move these 25-35 metric ton stones with just rudimentary tools? Your awesome storyteller guide will be there to guide you through your mystical discoveries, making these imposing stones approachable for family members of any and every age. While you’re there, you will also visit the reproduction of a typical house of that time.
We believe that how you travel is just as important as the destination you are traveling to. It takes an expert tour guide who is a great storyteller to make a Stone Circle or heap of ruins transform into an ancient wonder of the world or an imposing cathedral into an architectural wonder! Our expert, local Stonehenge tour guides can literally make a world of a difference!
VISIT WILTON HOUSE
Wilton House, home to the 18th Earl of Pembroke, provides a fascinating insight into British history. Built on the site of a 9th century nunnery but now set in 21 acres of landscaped parkland, with water and rose gardens beside the River Nadder and Palladian Bridge.
Within the house you will find the magnificent Inigo Jones Staterooms including the famous Double Cube Room - the finest surviving 17th century stateroom in England - which was designed to display the family portraits by Van Dyck. This is the greatest collection of paintings by the artist still to be seen in its original setting. Other artists on display include Pieter Brueghel, Rembrandt van Rijn and Richard Wilson. Guides are on hand within the rooms to tell you more about the fascinating history of the rooms.
Wilton House has been regularly used as a filming location and featured in the film version of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley, The Young Victoria, The Madness of King George, The Crown and in 2017, Tomb Raider.
VISIT WILTON HOUSE GARDENS AND ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND
For younger visitors there is an exciting outdoor adventure playground and quizzes in the house and grounds. There’s even a special area reserved for the under 5s.

Yes! Your kid-friendly guide knows just how to adapt their speech to any and all ages, making your trip through time interesting and engaging for everyone.
Just wanted to drop a little message telling you and your company thank you for such an amazing experience. My parents, husband, and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour yesterday. Your guy was an absolutely fantastic guide and extremely knowledgeable. He took us through Castle Combe, on to Bath, to an Inn in Lacock for dinner andthen to Stonehenge. He was so excited about England winning their football game that he even took us up to see Woodhenge. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience, it was so wonderful. Thank you again,
