 David’s Running tour of London

Before you look at all the tours available below, you might like to view this RELIVE video of a recent 13 mile tour of London landmarks that David undertook on foot.

As a keen runner, it was exciting to undertake a “running tour” instead of a “walking tour” and capture so many landmarks in a short space of time – and even better to abel to share it by capturing photos along the way and using RELIVE to map the photos onto the route.

We’re currently looking at how we might incorporate the RELIVE experience into – tours as a way of making your experience even more shareable with your family and friends.

Stonehenge has been the subject of Speculation and Fascination since the early medieval period.There have been different theories put forward about who built it,when,and for what purpose. Antiquaries argued that it was an ancient Roman temple,or that it was built by the Druids.Astronomers suggested that it was a primative computer for calculating the dates of eclipses.More recently,archaeologists have suggested that it was a place for people,s ancestors,or perhaps a centre of healing.Our day starts with a walking tour around the ancient site,viewing the site from different angles and a visit to the new interactive visitor centre to see some of the ancients artefacts connected with Stonehenge and the area,including the Durrington Walls where a reconstruction of the village site has been made showing how these early people lived.
