Available from September 2019, connect with local history and bring your teaching outside of the classroom into a hands-on environment, with free bus travel to Stonehenge for local schools within a 10 mile radius of the site. Our bus will collect you and your class in the morning to bring you to the site, then take you back to school in the afternoon. There are 30 seats available for your students on the bus, and we can accommodate one class per day using this service. Because of this, places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. Please book at least 2 weeks prior to your visit date.
