There are tours that go into the inner circle. We are doing the sunrise tour with Premiumtours next August. Most of the tour companies that I researched tend to do it as a full day tour with 1.5 hours or so at Stonehenge for sunrise or sunset. The one we are doing is Stonehenge at sunrise, Lacock, and Bath. You could also do Bath, Lacock, and Stonehenge at sunset. There are a few other companies that do an inner circle viewing, but it is part of an all day excursion. You could also look on Viator, but I believe they bring you to the Premium tours excursion. Hope this helps.

I hope you will do a report when you get back. I had seen where premium tours did offer this, which made me wonder if ABD did the inner circle or not. My dd is interested in the inner circle tour - and I was curious if it would be worth trying to add on, or if we should do London/Paris on our own instead of with ABD.

Landmark London?

Does anybody have any thoughts on the change to the Landmark London hotel? It looks like a beautiful hotel on their website, also lots of good reviews. It's pretty far away from the tourist areas of London though. There is a tube station nearby.

That's interesting that there are tours available in the inner circle. My daughter remembers being told only on the summer solstice. Sorry for our incorrect info!

I was sorry to see they aren't staying at Chancery Court now. We loved it! Our room was very large, with a lovely sitting area. The welcome inner was delicious, as well as afternoon tea. The staff was fantastic. But, I'm sure any hotel ABD chooses will be wonderful.

I believe I heard that the switch from the Chancery Court was due to refurbishing being done there. I don't know anything about the Landmark London Hotel.
