One of the most popular excursions for our students is the trip to Bath and Stonehenge, and it is not difficult to see why. Stonehenge is known all over the world as a UNESCO world heritage site and thought to be about 4000 years old, to this day no one is sure about how or why it was built. Many people have hypothesised that it may have been built for worship, rituals or astronomical observation. Whatever the reason the site continues to attract and amaze hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, here is what one of our students thought of the experience:
"When I entered Stonehenge, I was breathless: I could almost feel the magic and the mystery that this place releases;
I asked myself how something that was built 5000 years ago is so impressive and how it was possible for men with nothing else but their hands to erect it.
Just a tip: if you are looking for a place to go, choose immediately Stonehenge. The beauty’s worth all the time we were stuck in traffic!"
After a visit to Stonehenge the tour continues to Bath, a city often regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world. Stunning architecture and natural hot springs make Bath and incredibly unique place to visit.
