Hi. My name is Pat Shelley and I provide tours in and around the Stonehenge area. I take you on an exploration of the many sites which help to explain what Stonehenge may have been about across some beautiful countryside. Many people come back again with other members of their family or on the recommendation of friends. We can help out with transfers and travel arrangements to make your travel plans as smooth as possible. I look forward to meeting you.

Pat Shelley is one of those rare your guides whom not only imparts information, but is able to bring history to life. In addition, he is extremely well organized and helpful (wonderful traits for a guide!), plus he's just a super nice person. Pat is clearly passionate about Stonehenge and those who built it. His tour includes stops at surrounding... More

There are tours where guides have all the facts and you listen and think, well that is very interesting. You won't get that kind of tour with Pat Shelley. Pat is not only extremely knowledgable about stonehenge and the related surrounding sites, he has an incredible talent for imparting that knowledge, captivating his small tour group and transporting them back...

Hello, I was on a trip from the US to the UK for business and had a limited amount of free time with which to make a side adventure and see some of the wonders of Great Britain. It was difficult to choose exactly what to do and eventually I decided to go to Stonehenge. A bit of background on... More

Pat Shelley's tour was the best we've ever experienced. His guided tour and presentation were in-depth and scholarly, and imbued with a keen sense of our kindred humanity with the builders of Stonehenge.

I have been to Stonehenge before, and that was wonderful. This tour, which takes you inside the stones, is head and shoulders above the regular tour. To be inside is amazing and more than that, to walk around the other places on the tour is a totally new perspective. It is a map of everything around Stonehenge and you get... More

Some friends went to Stonehenge by car, parked right there, and walked into the monument. Their reaction was that it seemed small and less impressive than its pictures. Pat's tour started closer to the beginning, with the earlier henges and barrows, and filled in the surrounding terrain and context. We got the occasional glimpse at a distance, but by the... More

My wife and I had an excellent guided tour from the Guild Hall and Square through the city to Salisbury Cathedral. Our tour was lead by David Richards who obviously had more to impart than could be covered in an hour and a half walk. It might be worth contacting the Centre to see if a customized tour could be...

The only drawback here is that if you do not book with a tour group (Like we did), then you need to arrange your own travel. We rented a car, my husband was OK with driving on the left. Otherwise, you'll have to ask a taxi to meet you at the end of the tour in the evening. Mornings are... More

Hi diane362436. I am glad you enjoyed your tour to the inner circle and highlighting the issues around doing it yourself. As the following reviewer says all the transportation and guiding are taken care of and the cost overall is much the same. I hope you saw all the other monuments in the landscape and how they explain what Stonehenge... More

My boyfriend and I took Pat Shelley's inner circle tour this past Friday and were extremely pleased and impressed! His knowledge about Stonehenge, the surrounding monuments and area, as well as personal anecdotes about the archaeological digs made the experience amazing. He kept the tour engaged (and we had many children along so you know how difficult it can be)... More

Thanks Quaffley for your great review and thank you for coming on the tour. I'm glad you thought it was well worth the price and that is was a good experience. The kids were great on the tour considering how early they got up on that tour. Most of my tours are in the evning so it's less of a... More

Our family of 4 (children age 11 and 13) booked the inner circle sunrise tour with Pat Shelley based on the very positive tripadvisor reviews and couldn't agree more with all of the positive reviews. Stonehenge itself is amazing, but Pat's detailed explanation of what we know (and don't know!) about the surrounding monuments gave it so much more meaning.... More

Thanks NJLovesIceland for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. I always get a bit concerned about children on an early morning tour as they don't often take kindly to being woken up around 5 am and then being in some drizzle to see some stones. Your s were exemplary and a pleasure to have on the tour.... More
