Oldbury Tours offer guided tours of the prehistoric sites of Wiltshire including Stonehenge and Avebury. The Oldbury Tour is a fantastic way to really get to know our historic attractions.

Laurence has expert local knowledge and a degree in archaeology and classic studies as well as a passion for the outdoors. He will take you around the landscape in an air conditioned seven-seater car giving you maximum comfort and the benefit of stopping where and when you like. Feel free to explore any lumps, bumps and stones that take your fancy! Where ever you choose to stop off on the Oldbury Tour, Laurence will know something about the location. He really does know his subject and keeps abreast of all new discoveries and theories. He is an active member of the Council for British Archaeology and the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Society and their associated field group, he has also worked as a National Trust guide at Stonehenge.
