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.

This was one of the best travel experiences of my life. Pat is the perfect guide: extremely knowledgeable, personable, passionate, and funny. He gave us loads of fascinating information while showing us around not just the stones, but the surrounding landscape which is just as important to fully appreciating the immensity and antiquity of the site. He also gave us... More

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Pat Shelley is a charming, engaging guide who really knows his stuff -- Stonehenge is clearly a passion of his. Being able to see the sun rise from inside the stone circle on a frosty, misty morning was nothing short of magical, and I literally cried at the wonder of it. As if... More

Pat Shelley made the tour incredible. First of all we were able to go into the inner circle of Stonehenge during sunrise which is an incredible site to see. Secondly, Pat is the expert and knows everything there is to know about the area. He knew the answers to all the questions that were asked and he provided visual aids... More

Always wanted to view Stonehenge since seeing Spinal Tap. This was built over 5,500 years ago from 30 to 40 ton stones quarried 28 miles away and dragged to this location to build this sun worship Cathedral of the time and still captures the suns phases accurately. They have a skeleton and a model of a person of the time.... More

We are a bunch of professional Blue Badge Tourist Guides who booked Pat for a tour of the Stonehenge landscape including Durrington Walls. He did a fabulous job putting everything into context in an entertaining and easily digestible way. Whilst most of us keep up with recent developments and research, there's nothing like actually walking around the whole site and... More

We had an absolutely wonderful time here from start to finish. The stones are, of course, fascinating but so are all the staff who work there. We spent 20 minutes talking to an English Heritage geologist who was so informative and clearly extremely passionate about his job and also Stonehenge and was able to pass this enthusiasm onto both us...

This was a very informative and enjoyable tour. Pat is personable and knows a lot about his subject. He leads you around other nearby prehistoric sites that give you insight into the henges and their makers, and then the group walks across a pasture filled with sheep and over a crest of land with Stonehenge appearing right in front of...

If you want to truly experience Stonehenge then Pat Shelly's inner circle tour is a great way to do it. Considering the time, distance and effort to be at Stonehenge the incremental cost to experience the ruins from inside the circle and not from a path 100 metres away is a small price. Pat is exceptionally passionate and knowledgeable. The... More

Hi Don J. Thanks for taking the time to write a review and glad you enjoyed the tour. You make a very good point - if you are going to make all the effort to go to Stonehenge then a few extra ££s to see it properly is money well spent! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Kind... More

Wow. This was the most thorough and enjoyable tour I have ever taken. Pat explained and showed us everything modern man could know about Stonehenge and the area around it, which you must understand to get a grasp of what may have happened 3000 B.C.! Be prepared to walk (easy slope) and get a little sheep dung on your shoes... More

Stonehenge is something I believe everyone should see in a lifetime! I have been fascinated from childhood and now residing in the area, take as much opportunity to take my own children to visit regularly! The new visitor centre is informative with many relics to be seen in addition to the 'Stones!' There is a cafe offering excellent refreshment at... More
